Three years after his divorce from ex-wife Louise, Jamie Redknapp is reportedly dating Swedish model, Frida Andersson-Lourie. News of their romance came as former Strictly star Louise, 45, enjoyed a sunshine getaway in Ibiza.

Jamie, 47, and mum-of-four Frida, 37, are said to have grown close after being introduced through mutual friends, with sources saying he is happy to be with someone “who has kids too and is financially secure”.

Frida, 37, is divorced from US hedge fund tycoon Jonathan Lourie, 58. Her Instagram says she’s a “Mamma of 4 gorgeous kiddies”.

After 19 years of marriage, Jamie and Louise’s divorce was finalised in a 25-second court hearing in 2017. The pair have maintained an amicable relationship and co-parent their two sons Charley, 15, and Beau, 11, with Jamie saying in May, “It works really well.”

However, last week it was revealed Jamie doesn’t follow his single ex on Instagram, but Louise – who is releasing a tell-all book in March – does follow the football pundit.
