He ended his marriage to Helen Skelton months after she gave birth to their daughter.

Helen Skelton’s ex-husband is reportedly expecting a child with his new girlfriend, just months after his marriage ended.

The Strictly Come Dancing star was devastated when Richie Myler ended their 8-year marriage in April. Helen gave birth to their third child just four months before he called it quits.

Myler is now reportedly expecting another child with his current girlfriend Stephanie Thirkill.

A source told The Sun;

“Stephanie and Richie are obviously thrilled. They have moved very quickly but are extremely happy together.

“The timing of the pregnancy may raise a few eyebrows though. It is obviously such a huge step, and one made remarkably quickly off the back of Helen and Richie’s eight-year marriage ending.

“But Richie and Helen maintain cordial relations.

“In a way the timing is actually perfect as Helen is so happy at the moment.”

Richie’s relationship with Stephanie was made public just days after his split from Helen was confirmed.

He claims he did not cheat on the former Blue Peter presenter.

A source told MailOnline at the time that he started dating Stephanie after his marriage broke down.

“Richie is insisting there was no crossover, that he began the romance with Stephanie after their marriage collapsed, but Helen feels let down. They are still married, and their baby is literally months old.”

Richie shares two sons- Ernie (7) and Louis (5) and a 9-month-old daughter Elsie Kate- with Helen.
