'One day': Una Healy hopes to be friends with ex-husband Ben Foden
Una Healy has commented on her relationship with rugby player Ben Foden. The pair went their separate ways earlier this year when it was revealed that the sportsman had been cheating on the singer.
Speaking to Closer magazine on the Pride of Britain red carpet, Una confessed that one day she hopes to rekindle their friendship at some point in their lives.
Things are obviously still quite raw, but she is hopeful about their future: “I want to stay friends with Ben.”
The mum-of-two explained she hopes they can be on good terms for the sake of their children: “He's the father of my children and he's in my life forever, so hopefully one day we can be friends.”
Una’s world was flipped upside down when reports emerged that Ben had been cheating on his wife of six years.
Una told Best magazine at the same event that she is taking things slowly: “I’m taking it one day at a time. It’s all I can do right now.”
She admitted: “I’m focusing on the kids and just…getting on with things.”
Una has praised her children- six-year-old Aoife and three-year-old Tadhg- for helping her get through this harrowing time.
She said focusing on her role as a mum has been a massive help to her. "I'm so lucky to have them. I never feel lonely or alone. They’re lovely company and have brought joy into my life.”
The singer said: “The most important job for me is to be the best parent I can and to provide and look after them. They’re my priority."
We love how positive Una is about her future.
