Ben Foden speaks out about the "things he put Una through"

He claims they're "getting back on track"

Ben Foden has opened up about his former relationship with singer Una Healy.

He admitted that they had to put their differences aside because of their children.

The pair have two kids together- a daughter Aoife who was born in 2012 and a son Tadhg, born in 2015.

Foden said things are "getting back on track" between him and his ex-wife, but it took time to get there.

He claimed time is the biggest healer and said it has eased things between them.

Speaking to The Daily Mirror, he said: "The way things happened and the things I put Una through were pretty stressful. I would be a brave man to say I knew it would happen like this.

He added, "But I'm happy things are getting back on track."

Foden said they needed time to "reflect and take a breath".


"Una is a smart woman and she can be disappointed in me, but she knows we have two kids together."

"Una and I are getting better, as well as Jackie's relationship," he said.

"Our main job as human beings on this planet now is to raise these two kids together and hopefully we’ll turn them into beautiful people when they get older."

He said he has always said Una is a "great mother".

Foden said he and Healy were like "chalk and cheese", but Jackie is his "best friend" and his "real partner".

He added, "I never expected to get married again."

The Saturdays singer married the rugby star in 2012. They announced their separation in 2018.

A year after their separation, Foden met Jackie Belanoff-Smith in 2019. They welcomed their daughter Farrah in May 2020.
