Football pundit and BBC match of the presenter Gary Lineker has divorced his model wife Danielle Lineker over reports he doesn't want to start new family.
Gary Lineker 55 was previously married to Michelle Cockayne who he broke up with in 2006 before marrying Danielle, 36, in 2009 and it is believed Danielle wanted Children but Gary who already has four grown up boys, feels he is too old to father another. Below are tweets by the couple confirming the split.
Speaking to the sun newspaper, a spokesman of the couple issues this statement to affirm the rumour:
“Gary and Danielle have decided to end their marriage and their divorce was confirmed today with the judge granting a Decree Nisi. They remain the greatest of friends and wish each other every happiness.” The source continued “Usually these things are very sad and often acrimonious but with Gary and Danielle it is very much friendly with no legal battle that can cost a lot of money.
They didn’t use any solicitors and filed for divorce using a government website where they filled out the forms together. It cost about £400, rather tens of thousands in legal bills. “They made a great couple but their different views on having children is what made them realise had to split. They both know it is the right thing to do and are looking forward to the future. They are convinced they will stay friends.”
