  • Barnaby Joyce is expecting his fifth child with his former staffer Vicki Campion

Natalie Joyce has revealed she feels "deceived" by the Deputy Prime Minister, and said she sacrificed her own career to support him. He said repeatedly that "private matters remain private".

"His personal life is none of my businesses, it is none of anyone else's business", Mr Bowen said. I think he's a very poor Deputy Prime Minister. "I don't want any legislator to take that right away from me".

The announcement that Vikki Campion is expecting a baby with the Deputy Prime Minister shocked Australia, mostly because Vikki was a former media adviser to Mr Joyce.

Ms Campion worked as Mr Joyce's media advisor before she moved into a more senior role with Resources Minister Matt Canavan in April a year ago.

The very public, unflattering paparazzi snap of Mr Joyce's pregnant partner was splashed over newspapers and the internet simply because of his position.

"Just because my marriage didn't work doesn't mean I disregard what marriage is about".

Outside of describing the end of his marriage as "one of the greatest failures of his life", the bulk of the interview is Joyce reiterating that he doesn't believe that any of his (or anyone's) private life should be made public and insisting that there was no impropriety as it relates to his spending taxpayer funds.

9NEWS has confirmed Mr Joyce and Ms Campion are living together in the northern New South Wales town of Armidale.

Politicians are so far refusing to comment on the affair. I couldn't possibly know what it's like to have the country debate your private relationships'.

"I failed, and I'm obviously incredibly sorry about that, but I'm also - like other people - incredibly hurt that private issues get dragged into the public arena".

Ms Sales asked whether the allegations went to questions of his "loyalty and trustworthiness" as a politician.

Joyce was not prominent in the "no" campaign against same-sex marriage during the postal survey, however, and ultimately abstained from voting when the legislation passed in December a year ago.

"I am not for one minute saying that that is an admirable trait".

"One of the greatest failures of my life was the end of my marriage, and I do not in any way stand away from that".

The Daily Telegraph reported that the couple had moved in together and Mr Joyce was "madly in love" but the 50-year-old is concerned about the welfare of his daughters, who are in their late teens and early 20s.

"I am deeply saddened by the news that my husband has been having an affair and is now having a child with a former staff member. I failed - but just because I failed I'm not going to completely change my views".

Barnaby Joyce's wife of 24 years said the situation has been devastating for her and their four daughters.

Barnaby Joyce's direct political rival says the deputy PM's personal life is a no-go.


Barnaby Joyce's relationship with a former staffer was in the spotlight after "The Daily Telegraph" published photos of his pregnant partner in its Wednesday edition.
