Helen Skelton’s ex Richie posts sweet snap of kids amid marriage drama

Helen Skelton’s ex husband Richie Myler has shared an adorable picture of their kids in the middle of their dramatic split.

The couple share three kids, but last month they revealed that they had decided to separate after eight years together.

Countryfile presenter Helen, 38, revealed that Richie had left the family home.

But Richie, 31, has shown that he is still staying involved with the children by posting a cute picture of four year old Louis wearing giant red hoodie, which could be his dads, and looking adorably grumpy.

He has simply captioned the photo with a red heart and limited comments on the post.

He also posted an adorable video of Louis in his football kit drinking some water before returning to the match.

The tot said to the camera: "I need to go, dad" before running back into the action.

Helen and Richie share three kids, six year old Ernie, four year old Louis, and their new addition Elsie Kate, who was born just four months before they parted ways.

The professional rugby player has stayed rather quiet about the split, but made quite a statement by unfollowing his estranged wife Helen on social media this month.

The couple sadly split just four months after they welcomed Elsie in December.

Helen had posted the announcement on social media, writing: “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.”

Just weeks after the split, Richie was rumoured to be ‘dating’ the daughter of Leeds Rhinos’ President, 32 year old Stephanie Thirkill.

Meanwhile, Helen, 38, appeared back on TV on Saturday for the first time since the shocking split.

She was replacing presenter Adam Hills, who is currently in Australia.

Helen looked radiant wearing a black blazer and with her blonde hair swept to the side and a natural makeup look.

Fans were pleased to see the blonde beauty back on screens, with one writing: “@HelenSkelton fantastic today, welcome back to Rugby League well done.”

Another user agreed: "@HelenSkelton great presenting on C4, you are amazing xxxxx."

The newly single mum of three then shared an adorable photo on Sunday snuggling up to her five month old daughter.

She captioned the snap: “All the snogs for your baby girl #babygirl #weekend”, but decided to keep her comments turned off.
