Shortly after welcoming their second child, Brendan Cole and his wife Zoe were hit with reports that their marriage is on the rocks. But silencing those rumours, Zoe immediately took to her Instagram page to share a defiant throwback picture of the couple looking very much loved-up. "Not long now my love @brendancoleinsta! Beach days are coming. Cannot wait," she wrote in the caption. The image snap was then reposted on the former Strictly Come Dancing professional's social media account.
Brendan Cole and wife Zoe have been married since 2010
According to The Sun, the pair's marriage was put under strain as Brendan, 41, had been touring non-stop in the weeks leading up to his wife's due date and had been partying. "Brendan's hectic touring schedule and his late nights out with his fellow dancers is starting to take its toll," the source claimed. "It's been a very stressful few months leading up to the birth and barely 24 hours after Zoe had Dante, Brendan is already back on the road." Zoe's post comes days after the couple announced the birth of their baby son Danté.
