Ben Foden and Una Healy-how they split?
Una Healy, 37 is a singer and part of the British-Irish group called The Saturdays. Ben Foden, 33 and Una met, began dating and married on 30 June 2012 in her native hometown of Ireland. Their first child together is daughter Aoife who was born on 13 March 2012. Their second child is a son named Tadhg born on 2 February 2015.

Ben Foden and his recent take on their divorce
At the time of their divorce, Ben had said that cheating was not the only reason for the split, but now it looks like he is taking full responsibility for it. He said:
“It’s not ideal, but we’re very amicable, we’re getting through it, we’re not the first people in the world to get divorced. We’ve got two little kids we adore.”
“At the moment anything that’s published about me is never very good and pretty rightly so because I was the one who committed adultery.”
Both have moved on in their lives after their divorce. Una is dating former Limerick hurler David Breen, 33 and they went public about their romance in December 2018.
But Ben misses his kids and wants to spend time with them. Ben is in the US now with his New York team and Una is in the UK with her kids. He confessed:
“It’s hard because I’m away from my son and daughter. But I know they’re in a great and loving environment with Una because she’s a great mum. We never argue about that.”
