HEARTBROKEN Annie Kilner discovered hubby Kyle Walker had fathered a second love child with Lauryn Goodman when she got a Boxing Day message — from Lauryn herself.
The model and influencer is understood to have bluntly written: “I don’t have two baby daddies — I have one.”
England and Manchester City ace Kyle, 33, was then dumped by his wife after admitting he was indeed the father.
Lauryn had also forwarded a photo of Kyle enjoying a playdate with both their children in a park.
Annie, 30, had long suspected he was the dad of Lauryn’s daughter, born in July, after he bought the model a £2million mansion.
The Boxing Day exchange between the two confirmed her worst fears. Annie banished the £160,000-a-week player from the family’s £2.4million home and has since ditched her wedding ring.
Kyle moved to an apartment nearby and is said to be battling to save his two-year marriage.
His apology yesterday comes after Annie — who has sons, Roman, Riaan and Reign, with the player — announced she was “taking time away” from him.
He wrote on Instagram: “Annie is an amazing woman and I can only apologise for the upset I’ve caused her.”
She had previously been humiliated after Kyle was unmasked as the father of Lauryn’s son Kairo, born in April 2020.
He had promised to have nothing more to do with Lauryn or his son.
But in September 2022 he met her in secret at a lawyer’s office.
The pair resumed contact and weeks later Lauryn was pregnant with their second child.
Remarkably, as his complicated personal life threatened to unravel, Kyle’s performances on the pitch went from strength to strength.
One pal said he had been living a double life while “playing the best football of his career”.
In November, he was even handed the England captaincy for the first time for the 1-1 draw with North Macedonia.
But on Boxing Day his betrayal finally caught up with him.
A source said: “Lauryn had had enough of the lies so told Annie everything on Boxing Day.
“Annie was stunned but knew ultimately that Lauryn was telling her the truth. There is no hiding that fact. She thought she deserved to know the truth.”
Another source told how the marriage had been on the rocks for months after Lauryn taunted her online about the identity of the baby’s father.
They added: “The message she sent on Boxing Day confirmed what Annie already knew deep down. She didn’t want to believe it, but she knew. Kyle had bought her a house for more than £2million.
“There was no need for him to do that unless he had something to hide. That raised suspicions.
“Annie didn’t find out for a month and was livid.
“Then on Boxing Day, Lauryn messaged Annie out of the blue.
“They exchanged two or three messages and Annie was left in no doubt. Lauryn told her that her children had the same father.
“She even sent her a photograph of Kyle with the two kids in a park. Annie confronted Kyle and he admitted it before being told to leave the house for good. The ground was shaky already after months of arguments over Lauryn but this was the final straw.”
Annie hired Coleen Rooney’s victorious Wagatha Christie lawyer Paul Lunt and PR guru Rachel Monk as she plotted a fightback.
And on Wednesday she fired the first shot by announcing her split from the love-cheat ace.
She said 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.”
The couple met as teenagers in their home city of Sheffield.
But their troubles began after he made a £50million move from Tottenham to Manchester City in 2017.
In 2019 it emerged he had romped with Ex On The Beach star Laura Brown in his Bentley.
Model Annie kicked him out but gave him another chance.
He was moving his stuff back in when he had a brief fling with Lauryn and she fell pregnant. Kyle moved out of the family home and began renting a luxury £8,000-a-month apartment in nearby Hale, Cheshire.
He pleaded with Annie to take him back but was then exposed for breaking Covid rules by hosting a £2,200 orgy with two hookers.
Lauryn gave birth to Kairo in April then publicly unmasked Walker as his dad.
Annie took him back again and he proposed with a £250,000 ring.
The couple wed in December 2021 at Mottram Hall, Cheshire.
Last March the City star was seen on CCTV exposing himself in a bar and snogging a woman.
He dirty-danced with the woman — not his wife — and a female friend after he arrived at the Manchester venue drunk with male pals.
Walker later voluntarily attended a police station for an interview for indecent exposure.
