And Ben Foden and his wife Jackie Belanoff Smith looked more loved-up than ever as they stepped out for a romantic stroll in New York City on Friday.

Couple: Ben Foden, 34, and his wife Jackie Belanoff Smith looked more loved-up than ever as they stepped out for a romantic stroll in New York City on Friday 

Ben, who was previously married to singer Una Healy, cut a casual figure for the outing, donning a fitted black t-shirt which he paired with black slim-fitting jeans and white trousers. 

Jackie looked stylish in a white vest top and high-waisted blue jeans, while she also wore a pair of gold sandals.

Letting her blonde locks fall loose down her shoulders, she completed her look with a pair of shades.

The couple were clearly in a good mood with Ben smiling broadly and laughing as they shared a joke.

Ben was married to Una, 37, for six years, until they split in July 2018 when it emerged he had cheated on her with a PR girl.

Last month Ben's children, who he shares with Unawere introduced to their new step-mother.

Tadhg, four, was spotted in the background of one of his rugby star dad Ben Foden's Instagram stories, while the family celebrated Oktoberfest - in August. Aoife Belle, seven, was not seen but presumably at the family event.

Jackie filmed herself with other members of the Foden clan wearing Bavarian Lederhosen and German Dirndl dresses.

And while Una is taking it slow with her new man - sportsman David Breen - Ben married Jackie after just a two-week dalliance.

Ben tied the knot with Jackie after meeting on dating app Tinder. He announced it in a shock Instagram post, while they were on vacation in Nantucket.

A week after the nuptials, Ben reunited with his son and daughter as he gushed that 'the only thing that matters is family.'

But Jackie - it seemed - was not present, with a friend of the rugby player revealing to MailOnline that Ben chose to wed the New York socialite before making any introductions to his family.

The source also claimed that Ben likely married Jackie 'for a green card' and insisted the sportsman 'isn't interested in having more kids'.

Amid an array of claims arising about Ben's dating activities prior to marrying Jackie, the rugby player's pal insisted he wasn't faithful during the start of their still-fledgling romance.

The insider told MailOnline: 'He was 100% seeing Jackie at the same time as [former Big Brother contestant] Rebecca Jane and the other women. He's probably done this [married her] for a green card to stay in the US.'

The insider added: 'Before he married Jackie, he and Rebecca Jane talked about having children and it was completely ruled out.

'They discussed it at length and he definitely wasn't interested in having anymore kids.

'But, I wouldn't be surprised if he does with this latest turn of events. His posts with his kids on Saturday are just a blatant attempt to repair his image and for attention.'

Ben Foden's representatives declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.
