Manchester City’s seasoned defender, Kyle Walker, has finally spoken out after being dumped by his wife, Annie Kilner, over allegations of infidelity.
The 33-year-old English footballer’s marriage of 13 years came crashing down after it was revealed that he fathered a second child with reality star Lauryn Goodman.
Annie Kilner, 30, took to Instagram on Sunday to announce the separation, stating that she would be taking some time away from Kyle in light of the alleged infidelities.
The couple, who share three children and had been together for over a decade, is now navigating a highly publicized split.

Sources suggest that Walker remains committed to salvaging the marriage, hoping to convince Annie that he can still be the husband she desires.
A close friend revealed, “Kyle won’t be giving up on his marriage and hopes to convince Annie over time he can still be the husband she wants him to be. She just needs some space to process, and Kyle is respecting that.”
Annie Kilner took to Instagram to share the news of the separation, emphasizing her desire for privacy. The couple, who originally met in their hometown of Sheffield, share three children named Riaan, Roman, and Reign.
In her Instagram post, Annie wrote, “Sadly, after many years of marriage and three wonderful children together, I have decided to take some time away from Kyle.
