Sarie Kessler is of Scottish Descent
Margot Robbie’s mother, Sarie Kessler, was born into the family of Herb Kessler and Verna Kessler on the 22nd of June 1957. She is said to be of Scottish Descent. We don’t have details of the kind of childhood she had. But if her parents should be anything like her, then they must have been very supportive parents. We also do not know how many siblings she has.
Sarie Kessler was fortunate to grow up in a home where both parents stayed together until old age. Her parents have been together for more than sixty years. They were farmers and they owned a farm in the Gold Coast hinterland.
She is an Educated Woman
Sarie Kessler is a physiotherapist and is believed to have practiced physiotherapy in Australia. Unfortunately, we don’t have details about the elementary, high school, and university she attended. To her dismay, her job as a physiotherapist was not enough for her to give her children the best life as she had to borrow money several times to be able to take care of her children – a sacrifice that they are all grateful for.
On her 60th birthday, her daughter Margot paid off all her mortgages, making her debt-free. Currently, there are reports that her net worth is up to $1 million. In what may seem like a little sacrifice to pay for the fame her family now enjoys, thanks to her daughter, the gesture was reported in the media – which took a piece of the shine off the act for Kessler.
According to reports even though Sarie Kessler was grateful to her daughter for paying off her debts, she was not happy that it became a thing of public knowledge.
Sarie Kessler was Married to Doug Robbie
Sarie Kessler used to be married to a farmer and sugarcane tycoon named Doug Robbie, who is Margot Robbie’s father. Details about how they met and when they got married are not available to the public. As a married couple, they lived in Australia.
Seeing that Sarie is from a family where her parents kept their marital vows of being together forever to each other, she most probably never expected a short-lived marriage, but that was her fate. Sometime around 1995 when Margot Robbie was 5 years old, her parents got divorced. After the separation, Sarie moved in with her parents.
We don’t have details about what transpired between Sarie Kessler and her husband, however, there are reports that he was abusive and aggressive.
Sarie Kessler is a Single Mother of Four
Although Sarie Kessler’s marriage to Doug Robbie brought so much hurt to her heart as a result of their separation and divorce. But it also blessed her with four children.
After her divorce from Doug Robbie, she became a single mother of four – Lachlan Robbie, Cameron Robbie, Margot Robbie, and Anya Robbie. Doug Robbie was not always there for their children but he did not fail to provide money for their education, and as such, his children were able to get private education.
We can’t say for sure what the current relationship between Sarie Kessler and her husband is like but we know that his absence in the life of his children created a distance between them.
