The news of the split came just days before the family were set to move to New York after Ben landed a contract with Rugby United New York.

Healy says she her priority now is raising her two young children.

"I'm so lucky to have them. I never feel lonely or alone. They’re lovely company and have brought joy into my life. The most important job for me is to be the best parent I can and to provide and look after them. They’re my priority," she said.

"You have to be strong for your children as they’re dependent on you. But with that responsibility comes great satisfaction. I'm looking forward to all the milestones in their lives that we’ll share."

The 36-year-old music star also said she welcomes the support of her friends, family and fans.

"They’ve been rallying around when times are tough. I’ve been sent letters that are really supportive, too. Life is tough, but you’ve got to keep a positive attitude. Time is a healer as well", she said.

"Someone told me: 'Don’t look back; you’re not going that way.' These words inspire me, as does the famous quote of Winston Churchill: 'If you’re going through hell, keep going.'"
