Louise Redknapp has broken her silence after ex-husband Jamie Redknapp welcomed a new baby to say she's not in "despair".

Taking to Instagram stories, the mother of two slammed a story which claimed she was upset after Jamie, whom she was married to for almost 20 years, became a father once again.

"I try not to read or respond to these things but sometimes they are unavoidable," she said. "I’d really love to clarify that ‘Louise’ is not in despair or anything like it.

"I have my two gorgeous boys that I adore more than anything in the world, the best family around me and I’m having the time of my life with my career and with the most wonderful friends that a girl could hope for.”

"I’d like to make it clear that I’m in the most positive of headspace and loving my life. Here’s to all the ladies out there that are in control of their lives and living their very best lives."

Louise and Jamie married in 1998 before divorcing in 2017. They have two sons together, Charles William (17) and Beau (13).

Earlier this year, Louise revealed that following their split she felt suicidal and regretted not working on her relationship with Jamie.

“I would be standing in Central London and would wonder whether it would be easier for a bus to take me out,” she told YOU magazine.

“All it would take was for me to step out at the wrong moment and it would be over.”

“I was like, ‘I would really like this to all go away. But I’ve got two little men who need me more than anything’.”

“That’s where my selfishness stops. They’re the only thing that kept me going.”

“I never once looked behind, until maybe too late. I should have paused for a minute and thought about other people and had just a bit more time to work out why I felt I couldn’t do it anymore.”

“All I know is, I wish I’d tried.”

While Louise has remained single since, Jamie and Frida Andersson went public with their relationship in August 2020. On October 18 2021, the pair tied the knot at a registry office in Chelsea, London. They welcomed their first child, Raphael on November 21.

Frida was previously married to American hedge fund manager Jonathan Lourie, and the pair have four children together.
