Apologies in advance for the potential over-sharing. I’m putting this here as timing may be the only control I have of the information and it’s no longer right to ask the kids to be the keeper of secrets. I’m absolutely heartbroken to say that my marriage has broken down. We remain good friends and trust this will continue as we intend to co-parent as brilliantly and closely as we have hitherto and hope that as the dust settles, the children will see us both daily. Despite having lived with this knowledge for some time, wounds are still fresh and there is still pain. I know I have the ability to switch off the ‘comments’ feature but am choosing not to in the hope there is kindness and understanding. I’m acutely aware there is the possibility of public commentary by those who know nothing of the situation but I still would never appeal for privacy. #stillbelieveinlove
