IT’S BEEN LESS than four months since news broke that Una Healy and Ben Foden would be parting ways after a six-year marriage.
In the interim, there have been rumours of infidelity in addition to talk of burgeoning new romances with other people, but this week, attention has refocussed on the dynamic which exists between the Saturdays singer and the rugby star.
And that’s because Una, a native of Tipperary, has expressed interest in maintaining a friendship with her ex-husband.
While speaking to Closer magazine at the Pride of Britain Awards, the 37-year-old gave an insight into the importance she places on the role he plays in her life.
“I want to stay friends with Ben,” she told the publication.
Reflecting on the ten-year relationship they shared and the children born of that union, Una intimated she had no intention of cutting ties with the athlete.
He’s the father of my children and he’s in my life forever, so hopefully one day we can be friends.
In the aftermath of their break-up, Una told Hello! magazine that her sole priority was her children as she navigated the scrutiny focussed on both her and Ben following the announcement that their relationship had come to an end.
“I’m trying to figure it out. I’m taking each day as it comes and just being there for my children,” she said at the time.
