According to the Mirror, Una Healy is shocked to hear that her ex-husband Ben Foden has married the partner he has only been dating for two weeks.
In July 2018, it was announced that Healy and her Rugby player ex-husband had separated after he cheated on his wife and mother of his two children.
Una was a member of the successful British girl group The Saturdays, and it was said that her bandmates “rallied around” her after Ben broke the news.
“She’s a strong woman, but her friends have let her know that they will be there for her through this as it is still a shock to the system that Ben would remarry so soon,” a source told The Sun newspaper.
“The girls have all been there for Una. As soon as they heard what happened, Rochelle, Mollie, Vanessa, and Frankie were straight on their phones as they were worried about their friend.”
“They have rallied around to support her as they can only imagine what she is feeling,” the source continued.
When announcing their split last year, Ben admitted to cheating on Healy while on a night out with his rugby friends.
In an Instagram post, Ben, 34, stated that his ex-wife gave him a blessing to marry his new wife, Jackie Belanoff, a New Yorker.

This last year has been by far my toughest and most turbulent for a number of reasons that many of you I’m sure are aware of, in some way or another. The world has a funny way of working things out, many people think I’m a bad person – as I’m sure they’ll be many nasty comments left under this post by keyboard warriors a plenty. But I met a girl who seriously swept me off my feet and in a time of hardship showed me love, a deep devoted love. People will say we are mad or crazy or even fools, as @snackyjax and I had only been dating seriously for a little over 2 weeks before deciding to get married. But when someone like her comes in to your life, why would I wait? ????????♂️ The people who needed to know, such as close family and friends were told before anyone else and they are happy for me including my beautiful X wife @unahealy who I love even more for her blessing. Life is short and you only get one and it’s worth living. Jackie is the greatest human being I’ve ever come across – she’s beautiful inside and out, intelligent, charming, funny, generous, kind, gentle, energetic the list goes on. ???? She will be a great step mum to Aoife and Tadhg and offers me a future I can’t wait to explore with her. My heart is full and I honestly couldn’t be happier, so those that want to bring negativity or try and tear me down go ahead. My life is great and I hope you all will one day feel happiness like i feel while I write this caption. I love you @snackyjax I can’t wait to see where our lives lead together you brought excitement and joy to my life and I couldn’t be prouder having stand at my side as Mrs Foden. (BTW the witness is Jackie’s sister @leila.bela thanks you too hun for being a legend) #Love
