    Funny how her depression coincides with his first infidelity. Maybe GBC has the cause and effect mixed up

    10:10am: He said he was often called home during the day by Allison.

    But their communication deteriorated, he said.

    "Unfortunately, it deteriorated quite dramatically and the reason for that was because Allison was putting a lot of her best efforts into the children ... and on one hand that was great ... but that effort and also if we ever went out her 'putting on the facade of being together' was very draining for her," he said.

    "We communicated less and less and less."

    Gerard says the anti-depressants caused Allison to lose her libido and their sex life became non existent. #badenclay

    Gerard says Allison wanted to have a boy for his sake, to carry on the Baden-Clay name.

    Gerard: Allison just really wanted to have a son. I really didn't want another child. #badenclay

    From back in June 2012...

    June 16, 2012

    However he provided a rare insight into his family life in November 2008, when he recounted his week as a sole parent, while his wife enjoyed a rare retreat from the demands of motherhood to celebrate her 40th birthday.

    He spoke of his exhaustion, his failure to wash a single load of laundry and the mundane responsibilities that come with parenthood.

    "The past week I have been trying to do my best impersonation of my dear wife – and struggling!" he wrote.

    "I thought that I was pretty in tune with the day-to-day routine, but I can honestly say that this week has given me a real insight into the challenges of managing a family.

    "Waking up, getting dressed, having breakfast, making lunches, getting to school, collecting from school, bath, cook dinner, eat dinner, homework, teeth, bed! And that doesn't include any extracurricular activities like ballet, swimming and music!

    "And, I haven't done any vacuuming, dusting, cleaning or a single load of washing!

    "Despite these challenges (and the associated exhaustion!), I have enjoyed some wonderful times with my children both individually and collectively.

    "Whether it be a few minutes playing in the park, a snatched moment whilst getting them ready for bed, or just the simple pleasure of talking about life whilst driving to and from school, kindy and a host of other activities!

    "The startling revelation personally, has been the realisation that I am NOT superman after all!"

    Gerard says after the "challenges" of Allison's previous pregnancies and the financial pressures, he wasn't keen. #badenclay



    Gerard says Allison came quite depressed about not having another child. #badenclay

    I wish this was televised. Then I think we would have a better chance of reading body language. I'm aware that no one here really agrees with me and that's okay, but maybe he is actually upset. Or maybe I'm naive.

    10:14am: Mr Baden-Clay has removed his glasses and wiped tears from his eyes with a white handkerchief.

    10:13am: Mr Baden-Clay has broken down in the witness box.

    "She became much more withdrawn during that period," he said.

    "She was just a like, like a, blurrier image of herself ...

    "Our sex life basically became non-existent and she did put on weight."

    He said those outcomes could have been the result of her anti-depressant medication.

    Gerard says he cheated with a woman from work. It lasted a month. "We both wanted it for the same reasons - just the sex." #badenclay
