More about this separation and pain
Una went on to reveal:
‘Last summer when he got married again, that was a big shock to me. I was like: ”Woah, what is this?” It was something else I had to get my head around. But life goes on… it just moves faster for some than others, obviously!’

“My life’s a bit of mess. It’s been difficult over the past couple of months, for sure. I’ll always love Una. She’s my first love and the mother of my kids. I never meant to hurt her in the way I did.”
