"Like a lot of relationships, you go through a rough patch. We're working as best we can to get through it,' Mark shared. "But we've always tried to be quite private. We've never done the glossy magazines. A tabloid newspaper offered us a sum of money to give us an exclusive. And we respectfully declined. It's not what we do. You won't find a picture of our son anywhere on the internet because it's been quite a deliberate decision."

Mark added: "Nor am I going to name him again. If he wants to when he's old enough - to have a social media profile, that's up to him. But I'm not going to do it for him."
