"Thank you to everyone who has supported us before, during and after this," she concluded.

The former couple initially met in 2012 and welcomed their son in 2017.

Jennifer appeared on Lorraine two months after giving birth and detailed her labour experience.

"As far as labour was concerned I quiet enjoyed it. It was a bit of a challenge. These midwives came in that were absolutely incredible came in as his heart rate dropped. I think the contractions came a little bit too soon and were quite long," she said.

Jennifer continued: "His heart rate dropped and these midwives came in and were holding my hands and made me feel like superwoman.

"They said, 'Come on you're the best pusher in the north east'. Even if there was something wrong I wouldn't have known about it," she shared.

A week after splitting from Greg, 35, Jennifer was spotted out and about with her on-screen husband David Tag, with the pair reportedly growing close on set.
