Andy and Kim divorced two years later in 1978, and Peta Gibb was raised by her mother in Australia. She rarely met her father in person and only talked to him over the phone. During Peta Gibb's interview with News.com.au in 2017, she revealed that she only knew Andy as a singer, not her dad.

I didn't have the chance to get to know my father as well as I should have...As I grew, I learned that he was famous and that he had famous siblings, but for me, he was just a guy on the end of the telephone line.
