Rachel Hunter reveals the question she was asked at the NZ border that made her cry

Rachel Hunter has returned to New Zealand where she says she's "feeling safe" in quarantine, revealing she was asked a question by a worker at the border that made her break down in tears. 

The Kiwi supermodel shared a selfie from managed isolation where she was "tucked up in bed" after a day filled with "tears of relief". 

"I was asked a question at the border that meant the world to me... how is your mental health?" Hunter wrote. 

"Tears welled up in my eyes, tears kept coming. This is so important as we all know, or some are learning and acknowledging this. Please please take care of [your]self and be there for others." 

The TV personality and mum-of-two said she was "forever grateful" to the border workers and the New Zealanders that have helped keep Aotearoa safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Hunter also gave a shout out to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and "all her team at government". 

The Sports Illustrated cover star has just begun her 14-day stay in managed isolation.
