Anthony Albanese steps out in Peter Alexander pajamas and Newton Jets jersey at Marrickville home
Anthony Albanese stepped out in his pajamas and a pair of Ugg boots on Friday morning to collect his daily papers.
The Prime Minister donned his favorite Peter Alexander trousers with cute cartoon bunnies on them and a retro Newtown Jets jersey as he went to collect his papers at 6.03am.
He didn’t spend too long outside in the misty, chilly morning air, before walking back to his home in Marrickville, Sydney’s west.

The new Prime Minister has yet to move into Kirribilli House in Sydney Harbor as Scott Morrison and his family are staying at the residence six days after the election defeat.
However, with Mr Morrison, his wife Jenny and their two daughters set to return home to the Sutherland Shire in Sydney’s south on Friday, the weekend is likely to be moving day for Mr Albanese.
Moving vans were seen at the Lodge in Canberra on Thursday.
The 59-year-old’s neighbours, who love having ‘Albo’ on the street, previously told Daily Mail Australia they hoped he would move half an hour to Kirribilli so their street smart wouldn’t do headlines.
“Fingers crossed,” said retired neighbor Jon. “It would be impossible for him to stay here safely as a PM – but we would be sad to see him go.”
Another neighbor said he even takes out his trash for her when the family goes on holiday and buys Christmas presents for her children every year.
“He’s a lovely neighbor and he’s very talkative,” said mother-of-two Jane. “He is wonderful with children. He always has time for them – I find that incredible.
Mr Albanese lives in a modest house in Marrickville and owns several other investment properties – some on the same street as his house, and has a property portfolio worth around $5million.

Mr Albanese, who grew up in a flat next door to Camperdown housing commission, is a life member of the South Sydney Rabbitohs but also attends Newtown Jets home games at Henson Park in Marrickville.
“Where I grew up, people went to church on Sundays, they voted Labor every three years and they went to football on Saturdays – either Souths, Newtown or Balmain,” he told Daily Mail Australia during the election campaign.
“One of the things I still do is go to Henson Park to watch Newtown play and we sit on the hill – 8,972 of us – it’s a cracker.”
Crowds at all Newtown matches at Henson Park are reported to be 8,972 – the number of fans at the club’s last game before they were expelled from first-year competition at the end of the 1983 season.
Newtown now play in the second tier NSW Cup.
Just days after becoming the country’s new leader, Mr Albanese has already faced controversy in his own party, after Tanya Plibersek compared Peter Dutton to Harry Potter’s bald villain ‘Voldemort’.
Ms Plibersek, who is set to become the country’s next education minister after Labor’s historic election victory, said children who watched the films would be very ‘scared’ of the former defense minister when they would see it on television.
“I’m saying he looks a bit like Voldemort and we’ll see if he can do what he promised to do in his last run for the lead, which was to smile more,” Ms. Plibersek on 4BC radio.
On Thursday, Sunrise host Natalie Barr asked Mr Albanese about the brutal insult to Mr Dutton, pointing out there would be “hell to pay” if a man made fun of a female MP’s appearance.

The new Prime Minister replied: “She has already apologised”.
“There are a few comments made by the former prime minister about my appearance that you may remember from the election campaign,” he said.
“We shouldn’t refer to people’s looks, let’s discuss policy differences.”
