Helen Skelton has split from husband Richie Myler after eight years of marriage.
The Countryfile presenter shared the sad announcement in an emotional statement on her Instagram Stories on Monday, as she confirmed her split with fans.
The 38-year-old TV star revealed that her husband Richie had “left the family home” as she opened up about her heartbreak.
Helen and Richie’s split comes just four months after they gave birth to their third child, Elsie Kate.
The two are also the proud parents of sons Ernie (six) and Louis (four).

In her brief statement, Helen wrote: “Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple. He left the family home.
“We will do our best to raise our young children together.”
Helen’s statement came shortly after the mother-of-three shared a cryptic quote about the struggles of motherhood.
The Countryfile star seemed to hint that she was having a hard time as she shared again: “A mother is always full of emotion, full of love, full of fear and worry, full of exhaustion and lack of energy, full of maternal guilt and doubt, full of pride in her children , full of pure joy.
“She feels everything, that’s the beauty of her, she wears it too, and yet every day she gets up and does it all over again.”
Richie, 31, a rugby star who plays for Leeds Rhinos, has yet to publicly address his split from Helen.
Helen and Richie have had a busy few months after welcoming their third child – and first daughter – Elsie Kate, on December 31.
The proud parents shared the news with fans on Instagram, as Helen posted a sweet snap of Richie carrying their newborn daughters from the hospital.
“Can always count on Dickie… of all the things he said (there was a lot), ‘don’t worry, I’ll be your lido…’ while he might be my favorite on the way to the hospital.” The man meant doula. Out of the mouths of men,” Helen wrote at the time.
“But mostly because I still can’t find the proper words of thanks for our @nhsengland @nhsmillion… legends, the thriving multitude of them,” she added.
Helen and Richie had been married for eight years.
The couple married in December 2013.
Der Spiegel has reached out to Helen’s representative for comment.
