Louise Redknapp and her husband Jamie have reportedly split.
The Sun is claiming that they’re now separated and living apart.
The pretty shocking news comes after the couple have been married for 19 years and shortly after Louise returned to the spotlight to strut her stuff on Strictly Come Dancing.
“Louise told one of her closest friends she and Jamie had split,” a source told the newspaper, claiming that the former Eternal singer “was quite open about the fact the relationship was over.”
“She mentioned how much time they had spent apart and that when she and Jamie had tried to spend time together, it hadn’t been good,” the insider continued, but added that the couple are not yet ready to officially announce any news publicly for the sake of their two children.
Calling the alleged split “a very difficult situation” for the couple, they added that they are “determined to protect” their children from the sad news.
But while The Sun is claiming that couple have officially split, it’s thought that there is still a small glimmer of hope for a reconciliation.
The source alleged that Jamie and Louise are hoping that a little time apart may help them to fix the issues within their marriage, while claiming that Jamie – who often appears as a football pundit on Sky News – is still looking to make things work.
“He is fighting for his marriage and to keep his family together,” said the source, but noted that the whole situation is still “all very sad.”
“They are giving each other space as they work through things,” added the insider.
Louise and Jamie married in 1998 and welcomed their first child, a son named Charley, in 2004. Their second son, Beau Henry Redknapp, was then born in 2008.
