Investment banker Oliver Curtis is due to be released from Cooma Correctional Centre, while his wife, Roxy Jacenko, and their two children are on their way from Sydney to greet him.
Jacenko, 37, was spotted leaving her North Bondi home on Friday morning with the children in tow as they jetted to Cooma to pick up Curtis, 31.
She had promised to take a private jet to the rural town in southern NSW to be at the gates to greet her husband, who has spent a year behind bars for insider trading.
Curtis is said to be inside finalising his paperwork.
A personal security guard in a blacked out Range Rover has arrived at the gates to escort Curtis out.
The couple’s children – Pixie, 5, and Hunter, 3 – believe their father spent the past year on business in China.
This week, Jacenko revealed that Pixie had been crossing off the days on a calendar in her room until her father’s return.
“[Pixie is] marking off the days and now we’re down to however many sleeps … she can count now she goes to school.”
Before Curtis’ release, it was business as usual for the head of PR firm Sweaty Betty on Thursday night. She took to her Instagram account, which has 175,000 followers, to tag a shot of Perrier-Jouet champagne – possibly an early celebration drink.
In April, Jacenko told the Wentworth Courier: “Yes. Absolutely [we will be at the gates].
“The kids are looking forward to having their father back. Remember Pixie hasn’t seen Oli for 12 months, so it’s very important we’re there.
“[Pixie] will think she’s picking him up from work. She doesn’t know any different.”
Curtis was jailed for a year for his role in an insider trading conspiracy that netted him and former school friend John Hartman about $ 1.4 million that the duo spent on luxury cars and motorbikes, ski and casino trips, as well as luxury rental accommodation.
When Hartman was pinged for insider trading, he revealed Curtis’ involvement as part of a deal with prosecutors. He served 15 months in jail.
In March 2012, 10 days after Hartman was released, Curtis and Jacenko married in a $ 1000-a-head extravaganza at Sydney restaurant Quay, which cost $ 250,000.
Curtis gave his bride a white Ferrari convertible as a wedding gift. Her Vera Wang wedding dress was reportedly flown in from Los Angeles on a first-class seat after months of fittings.
Hartman testified against his former school friend at Curtis’ trial last year.
During that trial, Jacenko’s posting of her court attire to social media drew widespread criticism. Curtis appealed against his sentence but the appeal was dismissed.
