After 11 years of marriage, Christine and Paddy McGuinness have decided to go their ways.
Why did they split ?
The couple have three children, announced their decision to end their relationship in a joint statement that was shared on social media. In the report, they claimed that they “still have a great relationship” with one another and continue living together.
It comes at a time when there were rumors that the couple’s relationship was in trouble.
The following is an excerpt from the released statement: “We hadn’t planned on discussing this publicly until we were ready; however, due to the lack of privacy surrounding our personal life, we feel that we have no choice but to clarify.”
Although it was a challenging decision for us to make, we decided some time ago to go our own ways, but our primary focus has been and will continue to to love and support our children.
“We are moving forward as the best parents we can be for our three lovely children, even though this decision was not an easy one to make,” she said.
They said, “We will always be a loving family; we still have a terrific relationship; and we still live together in our family home, where we are all happy.”
“We hope this puts an end to any more unwelcome and unwarranted interference into our private life.
“Despite the fact that we are in the public spotlight on a daily basis, we respectfully request that you honour our requests for privacy about this subject. Thank you for your consideration.”
There will be no additional statement from our side.”
Christine paddy relationship
Christine and Paddy tied the knot in June 2011 and have been blessed with three children: twins Leo and Penelope, who are nine years old, and a daughter Felicity, who is six years old.
All of the children fall on the autism spectrum, and Christine has been very upfront about the difficulties this has caused, especially in light of the recent coronavirus lockdown.
In 2017, Leo and Penelope were both identified as having autism. In 2020, the family was informed that their third child, the youngest at the time, also had the disorder.
Christine received a diagnosis of autism at the age of 33 last year; she has stated that the diagnosis has assisted her in better understanding herself.
