ENGLAND teammates of Kyle Walker knew he had a secret family, Lauryn Goodman has claimed.
Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, Lauryn said Kyle led a double life while seeing her son Kairo and newborn daughter in visits he hid from wife Annie Kilner.
“I wasn’t a secret to his England teammates — they would come on the phone when he FaceTimed me.
“In one call he promised to bring Kairo a football back from the World Cup. And he did, one of the actual balls.”
“The blue Man City kit he wears with ‘Daddy’ on the back was bought by Kyle too.”
Son Kairo, three, was born following a brief relationship when the footballer split from childhood sweetheart Annie before getting back with her.
Lauryn says she always travelled to Manchester for Kyle to see son Kairo.
But it was during these secret meetups – which included a trip to a petting zoo and football sessions in the garden with Kairo – that the pair became close again.
They had a daughter last summer but Lauryn claims Kyle repeatedly denied the girl was his.
Fighting back tears, she says she kept asking the footballer to come clean with wife Annie but he was “too weak to do it”.
Left with no other choice and desperate to move forward “like adults”, she broke the news to Annie on December 27.
She explained: “I don’t think Annie wanted to believe it was true, which is understandable.
“She kept asking for proof so I showed her the DNA testbut even then she doubted it was real until I pointed out my daughter’s name on the paperwork.”
Annie announced last week she was separating from Kyle after two years of marriage.
It was confirmed hours later that Lauryn and Kyle shared a six month-old-daughter.
Kyle, who married Annie in 2021 and shares three sons with her, has moved into a flat near the family’s home in Prestbury, Cheshire.
