She’s one of the Real Housewives Of Melbourne who isn’t afraid to say what’s on her mind.
But on Friday, Janet Roach showed off a more sentimental side as she paid tribute to her two adult sons, Jake and Paul Zogoolas.
Posting to her Instagram, the 62-year-old doting mother shared a photograph alongside her children.
‘I’m such a proud Mum. After all our trials and tribulations I can honestly say my boys have grown into very special men,’ she began her heartfelt message.
Janet also mentioned the difficult times she went through as she raised the boys alone.
‘It’s a tough and challenging job parenting, specially when you are a single parent, but it’s the most worthwhile experience.
‘I would not have missed it for the world. Xx Love you guys,’ she added.
Some of those difficulties include her younger son Jake suffered burns to 70% of his body in 2011.
Jake was accidentally doused in petrol and went up in flames while sitting around a campfire at a friend’s 21st birthday party in April 2011.
In 2015, Janet said around half a million dollars had been spent on treatments for Jake, when speaking to The Daily Telegraph.
Janet opened up to Daily Mail Australia in 2014 about her one and only tattoo – a dragon on her back – which is a tribute to Jake.
‘It’s a dragon because my son was in a fire and he was very, very scarred all over and we had been dealing with that,’ she explained.
The fifth season of The Real Housewives of Melbourne is currently airing on Foxtel
