It's been two years today since you came into our lives after we saw this picture of you on the @wild_at_heart_foundation site and you've changed it forever, thank you for being the best little man in my life and for helping boost the Male ratio of the house."
The couple confirmed the split was amicable
In November 2019, the pair gave their first joint interview together for HELLO!, in which they discussed their romance at the time.
Karen said of her then-boyfriend: "He's my rock. It's so nice to have someone that understands and accepts me, doesn't judge and doesn't try to change me in any way. Everyone just falls in love with him too, because he has such a beautiful soul."
