While speaking with The Times’ Saturday Review, the 41-year-old actor confirmed he and the 42-year-old former footballer split, saying, “It is what it is.”
In the same interview, he spoke about his desire to become a dad, saying, “I thought about it many times and as I get older I’m thinking maybe I should get on and do it. I don’t want to be an old dad… but I would like to be a dad. There’s a lot of satisfaction to passing on your experiences and rearing a strong, open-minded, kind, respectful human being who can go out in the world and do something good.”
Back in October of 2020, fans began speculating that the pair had gone their separate ways after going public with their relationship in February of that year. They unfollowed each other and deleted photos of each other from their pages, prompting speculation. They then refollowed each other the very next day.
