Speaking to WHO in 2018 about her move to the US, Rebecca said: "I definitely do miss Australia and I definitely want to move back home one day. We are in New York that’s we’re we are based. It was always on my bucket list to live here [in New York] and I’m doing that now but now that I’m doing it, the dream has become that one day we will be able to move home to Sydney.
"I’m having a great time being here and I’m loving the adventure but home is definitely Australia with our families and living near the beach."
