Claire Sweeney and Daniel Reilly have split nine months after they welcomed their son Jaxon into the world.
The two rekindled their romance shortly after their exciting new arrival, but have now called time on their relationship, although they will continue to support each other.
This is super sad news, and we wish them both all the best.
In a statement, 44-year-old Claire told MailOnline: “Whilst we have decided not to remain together, we are committed to bringing up our wonderful son and making sure we are great parents and supporting each other to achieve that.”
Well said, Claire.
The two got engaged on Christmas Eve in 2012, but split in April 2014, shortly before finding out that the actress was pregnant.
The former Brookside actress later revealed that they’d grown close and got back together after the birth of adorable little Jaxon, who was a little miracle after she previously suffered two miscarriages.
She told OK! Magazine: “We’re together all the time now. The priority is the baby and Daniel is here supporting me and he is fantastic. Daniel has been living with me and looking after me. He’s been so lovely.”
She also gushed about Daniel taking to being a dad like a duck to water, adding: “He’s amazing and he couldn’t be any more supportive or a better dad.
“Having Jaxon made us so much closer and suddenly we feel like a team.”
