Rugby player Ben Foden and his second wife Jackie have just marked the first birthday of their daughter Farrah – and are thinking about having another child.

Ben, 35, is a father-of-three, welcoming Farrah a year ago with Jackie, 36, and already sharing Aoife Belle, nine, and Tadhg, six, with ex-wife Una Healy, 39.

And speaking to OK! Magazine this week, Jackie said: ‘We might have another baby next year.’

Reflecting on her pregnancy and the arrival of Farrah, she went on: ‘The first pregnancy was really hard on me. I remember breaking down to Ben one night because I was so exhausted.

‘Then we had to induce at 37 weeks which turned into a C-section. It was brutal. I’m 36 now, I’d love to have another kid because after having Farrah I see it’s the reason I was put on this planet.’

She also admitted that Farrah ‘lights up’ when she gets to spend time with her half-brother and sister – but they live in Ireland with Una, while Ben and Jackie are based in Jackie’s native US.

Remarking that Ben and Una’s children are very well behaved, Jackie also added that she believes she and Ben will relocate to the UK one day, returning to the US for holidays.

Back in March, Una spoke about how she negotiates her relationship with her ex-husband Ben for the sake of their children during a chat on Lorraine.

The singer split from the rugby player in 2018 after Ben allegedly cheated on her with PR girl Becky Milne, who denied the claims.

During the interview, Una talked about why she believes it is important to ‘preserve the best relationship with Ben, even though he is far away’.

Just one year after their split, Ben married Jackie on board a luxury yacht in Nantucket, Massachusetts, two weeks after they started dating.

The socialite announced her pregnancy soon after, and the couple welcomed their daughter in May last year.

Lorraine Kelly told Una: ‘I congratulate you for making sure that’s worked for them, because the children are the most important things, aren’t they?’

Una said: ‘They absolutely are, they are my world, Aoife and Tadhg, they really are.

‘They’re still so young as well so it’s very important to preserve the best relationship as possible with their dad, although he does live very far away and he has a new wife and a child.

‘I always try and nurture that relationship that they have, they communicate… they were just on FaceTime yesterday. 

‘He sees them when he can and I will always try and protect that relationship as best as possible and because I’m in the public eye, I get asked about him, I would never bad-mouth him or say anything bad because I don’t think that’s fair on the kids.

‘That’s just how I feel on the whole thing.’  

The Saturdays star relocated back to Ireland following the breakdown of her marriage. 

She went on to have a relationship with David Breen, but split from him last year.

The songstress is now looking to date again and her only criteria is that they are a ‘nice person’.

Talking about a disastrous date with the host, Una said: I’m finished with dating apps. 

‘We were chatting for weeks, I had a Skype dinner date. I was going to meet him and then I got a text saying, “I’ve just been knocked down, hit by a van” and he said he felt concussed.’

Una explained how the date told her he went to hospital and when they eventually did go on for a walk, they didn’t hit it off. 

She said:’That’s the danger of online dating. Building this date up in your head but it could be a let down.’
