Countryfile presenter Helen Skelton has announced she has split from her husband Richie Myler. The couple had only just welcomed their third child together four months ago – a daughter named Elsie Kate.
Since marrying in 2013, they also became proud parents to sons Ernie, six, and Louis, four. However, the presenter says they will be now co-parenting their children as she shockingly revealed her split with rugby league player Richie in an Instagram post on Monday night (April 25).
“Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple,” Helen wrote. “He has left the family home. We will be doing our best to co parent our small children.”
The emotional message was accompanied with two broken heart emojis. Mirror Online reports that the announcement came just hours after Helen had shared a lengthy message about the struggles of motherhood.
“A mama is always full of emotions. Full of love,” the post read. “Full of anxiety and worries.
“Full of exhaustion and lack of energy. Full of mum guilt and doubt. Full of pride in her kids. Full of pure joy.
“She feels it all, that’s the beauty of her, she carries it all, too. And yet she gets up every day and does it all over again.”
It was only last week that Helen was posting snaps looking happy in what seemed to be a family holiday, although Richie wasn’t seen in the pics.
