ENGLAND ace Kyle Walker was dumped after his wife confronted him over claims he’d fathered a second child with model Lauryn Goodman.
Annie, 30, received a message “out of the blue” onDay alleging that Kyle, 33, was the dad.
The Sun can also reveal that Annie dumped Kyle over claims he had fathered a second love child with model Lauryn Goodman, 32.
The pair have son Kairo, three, following a fling in 2019 while he was briefly separated from Annie.
Lauryn gave birth to a girl last July and has been dogged by rumours Kyle is the dad.
Sources say Annie was “floored” after receiving a message on Boxing Day which made the same claim.
The source added: “He’d humiliated her once and now Annie suspected he’d done it again with the same woman.
“It came out of the blue, it couldn’t have been a worse time.”
She has had a series of heart-to-hearts with Coleen, wife of former England Wayne.
Annie has “lawyered up” with legal whizz Paul Lunt, who acted for Coleen in her libel battle with Wag Becky Vardy.
Annie has also recruited top PR agent Rachel Monk.
Incredibly, Kyle ditched his spokeswoman and also hired Miss Monk to manage the scandal.
Annie had previously agreed to stand by the Manchester City ace despite his 2019 fling with model Lauryn.
Annie branded his betrayal “obscene” but insisted on keeping their family together. But she finally snapped after their Boxing Day row.
Another source said the marriage had been on the rocks for months after Lauryn taunted her online about the identity of the baby’s father.
The source added: “Annie didn’t want to believe it, but she was obviously suspicious after his previous love child.”
The source said Kyle has moved into an apartment in Prestbury, Cheshire, but still sees his and Annie’s three kids.
The source added: “If it is true, how can he be so stupid to do it again? I feel sorry for Annie and the kids. The truth is she loves him.”
Friends said there was “no chance” Annie would reconcile.
Kyle, who captained the Three Lions against North Macedonia in November, has remained silent.
She announced their separation on Wednesday following a series of secret legal meetings.
Annie wrote on Instagram: “I am posting this in response to growing recent media enquiries about my marriage to Kyle and in an effort to protect my family against the intensity of the media spotlight.
“Sadly, after many years of marriage and three wonderful children together, I have decided to take some time away from Kyle.”
She added: “I do not wish to comment on the position any further.
“For now, I ask that the privacy of myself and our three young children is respected during this difficult time.”
Annie loyally followed Kyle when he signed for Tottenham, and when he made his £50million move to Manchester City in 2017.
Annie took him back, but within weeks Lauryn was pregnant with Kairo.
He confessed to Annie in a phone call from training in February 2020 and Kairo was born that April.
Despite the heartache, Annie agreed to take him back again for the sake of their kids.
She later revealed the pain he had inflicted in an exclusive interview with The Sun on Sunday, saying: “I don’t think I’ll ever be the same again because of what he’s done.
“It makes me really sad that I’ve been damaged so badly when I’ve done nothing to deserve it. I love Kyle dearly and I’ll always love him, but to do this to me . . . after three kids?”
She added: “I’ve tried to hate him but how can I hate the man my kids love so much?
“Before the infidelity he was my best friend, my soulmate. I could count on him for anything. But none of what I thought we had feels real because he stabbed me in the back.”
She also spoke of her pain as she wondered if Kairo looked like Kyle.
Kyle had promised to have nothing to do with Lauryn or his son.
But after a legal meeting in September 2022 they began communicating and he was secretly seeing Kairo up to twice a week.
A source said: “Lauryn has always wanted Kyle to be a part of Kairo’s life.
“Kyle and Lauryn only discussed their son and there was nothing else to it, but if he didn’t tell Annie it’s not surprising she was upset to find out.
“They are constantly in touch but it is all for the sake of their boy.”
