‘A pretty special day’ Ben Foden has just gone Instagram official with his new girlfriend

Found a good one, indeed.

Ben Foden has gone Instagram official with his new girlfriend, a blonde woman who goes only by the IG handle of ‘Snackjax.’

The rugby player, who had been previously linked to Irish fitness model Miriam Murphy, shared the intimate photos of himself and his new love interest over the long weekend.

The images showed the pair walking onto a boat hand-in-hand, and later embracing on a dock beside a boat.

“Found a good one,” Foden wrote on one of the photos, alongside the blushing heart emoji and a tag to the woman’s own Instagram account, which is on private.

“Yesterday was a pretty special day,” he wrote on another one of the photos.

This comes after Foden and Murphy shared their first photo together just a few months ago while partying in New York. 

The pair were rumoured to have been dating for some time, but the rugby player never spoke publicly of their relationship.

Foden split from ex-wife Una Healy in the summer of 2018 following a bout of infidelity.

The pair, who have two children together – four-year-old Tadhg and seven-year-old Aoife – separated after Foden was unfaithful while The Saturdays’ singer was pregnant with their second child.

Foden later said that the infidelity wasn’t the only reason behind their split.

“At the moment anything that’s published about me is never very good and pretty rightly so because I was the one who committed adultery,” he told The Guardian.

“But at the same time, it wasn’t the only reason for our divorce to go through. It’s not ideal, but we’re very amicable, we’re getting through it, we’re not the first people in the world to get divorced.

“We’ve got two little kids we adore.”

Healy later said that she hopes she and Foden can remain friends “one day.”
