"She has her own life and her own job going on and she is happy and secure with that. "She isn't jealous at all. Like she told me, 'I ain't going to do any better' and I agree with that.

"It is really early days, it's way too early to mention the L word but we are both happy."

We’re only a little bit jealous, honest.
