Ulrika Jonsson knows how Helen Skelton feels amid sudden split after birth


Ulrika Jonsson has offered up her sympathies for TV star Helen Skelton after it was announced she'd split from her husband Richard Myler.

The shocking split comes just four months after the Countryfile star welcomed her third child with Richard into the world – beautiful baby Elsie Kate.

Helen and rugby star Richard also share two other children together Ernie, six, and Louis, four.

The Sun recently reported that Richard had already "started a romance" with a new woman, with the pair now thought to have jetted off on a romantic holiday together.

Addressing the situation, Ulrika who has had her fair share of heartache over the years, said she was "truly sad" for Helen after being "abandoned after birth".

Having been there before, Ulrika explained it was hard "not to crumble" given the circumstances.

Writing in her column for The Sun, she penned: "When you're left holding the baby, either through a decision of your own or someone else's, when the life you had pictured comes to a halt and the future couldn't be further from certain, it’s hard not to crumble."

At the time of her own hardship, Ulrika moaned that she'd found it difficult to listen to people who would encourage that she'd get over it and had been "strong".

Ulrika went on: "Just because people have shown doggedness, resolve and tenacity in the past, it doesn’t mean they don’t need a bloody big hug and to be told that it’s fine if they need a cry or can’t cope.

"Even the strongest people need space to buckle and yield."

It comes after the same publication claimed Richard had fled to a tropical location to "ride out the storm" with his new love interest.

A source told The Sun: "He said he was going on holiday.

"It's thought he's taken the new missus so they can be out of the public eye."

Helen who is thought to have been "blindsided" by the new romance, confirmed that her marriage had broke down on social media

She penned: "Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has left the family home.

"We will be doing our best to co parent our small children."
