Una Healy confirms breakup from Garda boyfriend

Una dated the mystery man for several months, but never revealed his identity.

Singer Una Healy has confirmed that she is no longer in a relationship with her Garda boyfriend.

The Saturdays star never shared the identity of her boyfriend with her followers on social media, but it’s understood that she met him through her friend Lottie Ryan.

Not too long ago, Una and her mystery man were on holidays in Mexico, but a spokesperson for the star has confirmed that they are no longer together.

They told the Sunday World: “Una is now single and no longer dating a member of the Gardaí.”

Fans had speculated that Una and the Garda had split after she attended the wedding of country singer Cliona Hagan with her mother Anne as her plus-one.

Before her relationship with the Garda, Una was dating David Breen, a Limerick hurler. They subsequently split last February, with Una saying that she felt she got into a relationship too quickly after her divorce from Ben Fodden.

Una was married to the English rugby player for six years, and they had two children together – a daughter Aoife, and a son Tadhg.

The couple split and shortly afterwards Ben announced his engagement to American socialite Jackie Belanoff-Smith. Ben admitted to cheating on Una, but said that his infidelity wasn’t the only factor in their split.

In 2019, he told The Guardian: “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.

“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.”
