A bit about Lee Ryan

Though Lee is not married, he has two children from previous relationships. He has a daughter named Bluebell who was born in 2007 to his then-girlfriend Jessica Keevil. He has a son with Samantha and the son named Rayn was born in 2008. Lee is very close to his kids and shares a remarkable relationship with them. He often posts pictures of them on his social media. There are pictures of Samantha as well on his Instagram and even after their separation, they continue to remain friends and co-parent their kids in a nice way. It is heartening to learn that!

His family would be supporting Lee during this new role that he has taken up on Strictly Come Dancing. But it is learned that Lee is in love again and this time the lady is 13 years younger to him. He is said to be dating a Kazakhstani model and actress named Diora Romanova, 22. The couple had met backstage during the My House music festival which had taken place in Almaty in August 2018. The insiders have revealed that the couple has loved-up and their relationship is getting serious.
The couple has gone public via their social media on which they have been posting pictures of them together at various places. But after the posting of some cute pictures, Diora has opted to change the settings of her Instagram to private. A source informed The Sun:
“Diora’s an upcoming model in Europe so it’s no surprise she caught Lee’e eye when they met.”
The source added:
“They got chatting and really hit off when and he quickly asked her out, and they already look like a long-term couple-they couldn’t keep their hands off each other on Saturday. He’s always been very charming and a bit of a ladies’ man, but she is enjoying herself too and they were happy to pose up for pics together.”
The insider continued:
“It’s still too early days but Diora and Lee are getting to know each other and exchanging lots of messages in between his Strictly training.”
Prior to Diora, Lee was in a relationship with former Miss Universe GB, Jamie-Lee Faulkner but the couple split last year.
