Helen and Richie parted ways after almost a decade-long relationship.

The ex-couple married in December 2013 and had three children: two sons and a daughter.

Richie and Helen welcomed their first child, Ernie, on June 19, 2015.

After almost two years, the two were blessed with another son named Louis, born in April 2017.

Then, four years later, their first daughter, Elsie, came into the family, born on December 28, 2021.

While everything was going smoothly for the family, the couple dropped the bombshell about their split.

In April 2022, just four months after having their youngest child, Richie left the family home.

Breaking the news to everyone, Helen announced,

Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has left the family home. We will be doing our best to co-parent our small children.

Before parting ways, they had been renovating a house in Yorkshire.

Talking to the Mirror, Helen spoke about how they were taking on their parental roles and managing their time apart, saying:

No… We’re not in the house together we are staying out of each other’s way. We say this is the dream as we have breakfast, lunch and dinner together but then look after the kids in shifts. You appreciate the other in this situation. I don’t think he’ll ever say again, ‘What do you do with the kids all day? ‘ Sometimes he would get in from work and he’d be that husband that would look at the kitchen and say, ‘How is this still a mess when she’s been off all day? ‘ Now he’s done it he’s like, ‘How does she stay sane?

Then, in her autobiography titled ‘In My Stride,’ she broke her silence and revealed that she was ‘blindsided‘ when Richie, her ex-husband, wanted to decide to end their eight-year-long relationship.

She asserted,

I was in shock. I know that following break-ups, people often say they didn’t see it coming and it sounds like a cliche, but that was me.”

Following the separation, Richie moved on swiftly with marketing executive Stephanie Thirkill.

The two first met at Leeds Rhinos and made their relationship official on Instagram in July 2022, attending Wimbledon together.
