The couple share two daughters together

The former couple were set to celebrate their 13th wedding anniversary next month. They were married on 2 August 2009, and went on to welcome two daughters: Amelie, 11, and eight-year-old Minnie.

The singer recently opened up about their romance on Roxie Nafousi's The Moments That Made Me podcast. "We were childhood sweethearts," she shared. "We went out with each other when we were 12, we met at youth club and I was besotted with him. We went out for probably about four weeks and when you're that age that was a really long time!"
