Christine McGuiness says it’s time to ‘trust the magic of beginnings’ in cryptic Instagram post after split from Paddy

Christine McGuiness has shared a photo of herself moving on after a difficult decision to split from her husband Paddy.

Christine and Paddy McGuiness announced their split in a joint statement posted to Instagram stories in July.

The post read: “We hadn’t planned on sharing this publicly until we were ready but after the lack of privacy surrounding our personal life, we feel left with no other option but to clarify.

“A while ago we took the difficult decision to separate but our main focus as always is to continue loving and supporting our children.

“This was not an easy decision to make but we’re moving forward as the best parents we can be for our three beautiful children.”

Christine has shared a new post about moving on from her marriage.

The post also went on to say that the couple will continue to live in the same family home together but it gave no clarity for the reason behind the separation.

But Christina has shed some light on the situation - on 4 August she posted a video to her Instagram story which included shots of her travelling around London.

She also posted a photo to her feed of her with a suitcase, a large video camera and a backpack.

She captioned the photo, writing: “And suddenly you know…It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.”

The post has received a lot of positive attention - one fan wrote: “Good luck Christine in whatever your future holds.”

Another said: “Love you Christine, keep being you and stay strong.”

In the photo Christine is wearing a bright pink jacket, denim shorts and baby blue trainers.

Love Island’s Chloe Burrow commented: “LOVE your hair like this.”

Influencer Phoenix Brown said: “Stunning and the shoes are fire.”
