Why did Laura Hamilton split from her husband?

In January, Laura announced that she and Alex had decided to separate. At the time, the presenter shared the news on Instagram by posting a photo of a printed Dr. Seuss quote that read: "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."

She wrote in the caption: "This isn't something I ever thought I'd be saying but, after 13 years of being together Alex and I have separated. Our children are and always will be our number one priority and we would respect privacy for our family at this time. Laura."

Since then, Laura opened up to HELLO! about the break-up and her decision to move into her own new home. "It was a decision we both came to. We have an enormous amount of respect for each other, but we are now on different paths," she said.

"At the point it was announced, we'd already overcome a lot of difficult times. But I am lucky that we have the relationship and respect for each other that we have, and our children's happiness will always be our priority."

The couple are committed to co-parenting and have since been pictured on holiday together with their children.
