Kyle Walker's wife Annie Kilner announces she's separated from Man City star

Kyle Walker's wife Annie Kilner announces she's separated from Man City star

The pair married in December 2021

Kyle Walker's wife Annie Kilner has announced she's separated from the Manchester City star.

The footballer and Kilner tied the knot in December 2021 and share three young kids together; Riaan, Roman and Reign.

She shared a statement to Instagram confirming she had 'decided to take some time away from Kyle'.

There have been rumours surrounding much of their relationship, with the England footballer being filmed allegedly 'exposing himself' in a bar kissing another woman last year.

Walker has repeatedly been accused of cheating on Kilner with influencer Lauryn Goodman continuing to insist he is the dad of her three-year-old son.

The Real Housewives of Cheshire star has always stood by her husband but has now announced they are taking a break in their relationship.

Kilner wrote on her Instagram Story this evening (10 January): "I am posting this in response to growing media enquiries about my marriage to Kyle and in an effort to protect my family against the intensity of the media spotlight.

"Sadly, after many years of marriage and three wonderful children together, I have decided to take some time away from Kyle.

"I do not wish to comment on the position any further. For now, I ask that the privacy of myself and our 3 young children is respected during this difficult time."

The pair first met in their hometown of Sheffield when the footballer was 17 and she was 15.

Walker was previously questioned over whether or not the pair were still together and said to The Sun in December: "We haven't split. I'm here at my family home, aren't I?"

A source said at the time: "Kyle and Annie have been arguing. She said she'd had enough because of all the ongoing stuff with Lauryn. There was another legal meeting involving her and Kyle this week.

"It's put a real strain on them. Annie has done nothing wrong apart from trust him. She wants to keep things together."

Reports suggested Walker's legal battle with Goodman was putting a strain on his marriage.
