Tom Hickey Is A Family Man With Three Children
Tom Hickey is married to his wife, Chloe Hickey, with three kids. The AFL footballer left his twin baby girls in the hospital and traveled to Melbourne to compete in Friday night's qualifying final win.
He was a standout for Sydney, taking on the Demons' ruck duo of Max Gawn and Luke Jackson and winning by 22 points.
However, when speaking to Fox Footy after the game, Hickey was almost in tears as he discussed the emotional toll of the big finals wins.
Hickey's emotional reveal moved Fox Footy's Garry Lyon. "This is what it all boils down to." "You play for a variety of reasons, but your family comes first," Lyon explained.
Hickey's family makes him appreciate his longevity as an AFL footballer, allowing him to be home more often than he would in a regular job.
His three-year contract with the Swans expires at the end of next season, but he intends to play as long as he can before moving to the Gold Coast home they purchased in 2017.
Hickey also assured that his wife, Chloe, is never left alone, whether, with his parents, Chloe's parents, or some friends come down and spend the night.
His twins arrived last October and turned 10 months now when they begin to crawl, laugh, and entertain each other. "I believe I described it as pure chaos interspersed with moments of bliss," he added.
