Ben Foden’s new wife Jackie has responded to speculation that he’ll cheat

The pair married at the weekend.

“Nothing in my gut gives me that impression.”

Jackie Belanoff Smith has said that she doesn’t believe her new husband Ben Foden will cheat on her.

She and Ben said “I do” at the weekend, having gone public with their romance a day beforehand.

They had been an item for just two weeks before deciding to tie the knot.

Ben shared the news on his Instagram and while many fans shared their congratulations, some voiced concerns that he would be unfaithful to her.

The rugby player previously admitted to cheating on his ex-wife Una Healy while she was pregnant with their son Tadgh.

But Jackie has said she’s not worried and even joked with social media followers that she’d unleash them on him if he were to misbehave.

“I really don’t think he will!!! Like nothing in my gut gives me that impression,” she wrote.

“But if he does, I know exactly who I’ll unleash on him hahaha.”

She also responded to a commenter who said they were taking bets on how long their marriage would last.

“I’m in let’s do this,” she replied.

Ben and Jackie, an American who owns her own lifestyle products business, wed on a boat in Nantucket, Massachusetts with her sister Leila as witness.

Announcing their marriage, Ben admitted that people might find the decision rushed but said he’d been swept off his feet.

“People will say we are mad or crazy or even fools, as @snackyjax and I had only been dating seriously for a little over 2 weeks before deciding to get married,” he wrote.

“But when someone like her comes in to your life, why would I wait?”
