‘Their life changed, I needed to be their one staple’: Louise Redknapp says she hasn’t dated since her divorce because ex Jamie’s new marriage had a lasting impact on their sons

Louise Redknapp has spoken out on her ex-husband Jamie’s new marriage, revealing the impact it had on their two teenage sons.

The singer, 47, said she has held off dating to focus on being ‘the one staple’ for sons Charley, 18, and Beau, 13 following her 2018 divorce.

Ex footballer Jamie married model Frida Andersson, 38, in October 2021 and welcomed their first child, son Raphael, together in November.

Speaking to HELLO! about life four years on from her divorce, Louise confessed the split and Jamie’s new marriage have had a lasting impact on their sons.  

‘I’ve felt this as a mum and, to say this in the most sort of respectful way, my boys’ lives changed dramatically and then it changed again when obviously Jamie got married and had a family,’ she explained.

Explaining why she hasn’t dated recently, Louise pointed out: ‘Their life changed and I felt like I needed to be their one staple.’

‘That’s just something I think a lot of mums would feel.’

Revealing she’s ‘not trawling through dating sites,’ Louise said ‘I’m not averse to dating or meeting somebody.’

‘My boys will be absolutely fine if I’m dating or if I’m going out with anyone, they will be my biggest supporters as long as I’m happy. Like they’re like, ‘Yeah mum, you should.”’
