Louise Redknapp has been left stunned by the news that ex husband Jamie Redknappis expecting a baby with girlfriend Frida Andersson, sources said.
The former Eternal star has told pals she only heard that Jamie and Frida – who started dating 18 months ago – were expecting through family members and is shocked that the former football star will become a new father at 47 years old.
“Louise was knocked sideways by the news. Jamie didn’t tell her directly, she found out through family,” a source said.
“She’s happy for them both and says life goes on but at the same time, she’s shocked by how quickly he’s moved on and that he’ll be a new dad again at nearly 50. A new baby is always a joy but she is concerned at how it will impact their family dynamic.”
Louise and Jamie married in 1998 and have sons Charley, 16, and Beau, 12, together. The couple announced their split in 2017.
Louise and Jamie did not respond when approached for comment.
Jamie and Frida’s baby news was announced by sources to The Sun and eventually confirmed by Frida on her Instagram page when she replied ‘thank you’ to comments from fans.
“Lovely news on your new baby. Congratulations to both,” wrote one, whilst a second added: “Congratulations on your new baby.” Frida simply responded with a “thank you” emoji.
