Helen Skelton has separated from her husband Richie Myler.

The Countryfile presenter, 38, made the announcement on Instagram on Monday night.

The news comes just months after the couple welcomed their third child together.

In her shared post on her Black Background Stories, she wrote, “Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has moved out of the family home. We will do our best to co-parent our grandchildren.”

She ended the emotional post using two broken heart emojis.

Helen married England rugby star Richie in 2013. They have three children together, Ernie, six, Louis, five, and Elsie Kate, four months.

The latest post came just hours after Helen shared a long post about some of the struggles of motherhood.

She once again took to her Stories to share the post which read, “A mum is always full of emotions. Full of love.

“Full of anxiety and worry. Full of exhaustion and lack of energy. Full of guilt and self-doubt of mum. Full of pride for her children. Full of pure joy.

“She feels everything, it’s her beauty, she carries everything too.

“And yet she gets up every day and does it again.”

It was only last week that Helen posted snaps looking happy on vacation.

She shared the photos of herself looking amazing just months after giving birth to the couple’s latest baby.

She also shared images of herself playing with her children in what appeared to be a happy family vacation, even though Richie was not in the photos.

Helen donned a skimpy black swimsuit and chunky black sunglasses, while she had her blonde locks tied back in a ponytail and her followers were quick to shower her with praise.

On New Year’s Eve, she announced the birth of her third child.

Shortly after, she revealed the emotional reason behind the toddler’s name.

Talk to Hello! Magazine, Helen revealed that she gave birth to her third child on December 28.

And she explained: “We were always going to have Kate as a middle name after my cousin, who sadly passed away when we were in our twenties.

“I was very close to her, she was a scientist and a crazy cool.”

The youngster was also the biggest of the star’s offspring, weighing 7lb 8oz at birth.
