Watch: Una Healy has recovered from 'traumatic' split from Ben Foden

Una Healy has said she's "healed" from her "traumatic" split with ex Ben Foden.

The Saturdays singer parted ways with the rugby player in 2018 following six years of marriage. The pair share two children, daughter Aoife, eight, and six-year-old son Tadhg.

Foden, 35, went on to marry second wife Jackie Belanoff Smith a year later after dating for two weeks and the pair welcomed their first child last May, a daughter named Farrah Abra.

“It’ll be three years this summer since we split, so I have had the time to heal from all of that," Healy, 39, told The Sun. "The past year for everybody has been getting used to a new normal, but for me, the year before that was getting used to my new normal.

“I’ve had quite a bit of time to recover from it all. It was traumatic, the whole thing, it really was.

“But I am actually very happy right now. This is me now and you have to get used to your new life and I couldn’t be at a better place than at home in Ireland with my family. That’s just how it is."

Healy moved back to her home country of Ireland last year, while Foden lives in the US with his new family.

Back in 2019 the sportsman confirmed there was truth to cheating rumours surrounding him as he told The Guardian that he had "committed adultery" while he and Healy were together, but that "it wasn’t the only reason" for the divorce.

Healy confirmed she is looking for love again but that she had been accused of being a catfish on dating apps by people who didn't believe she really was who she said she was.

The mother-of-two added it was "the worst time to be single" as lockdown has put a stop to meeting up with people.
