The revelation has led to the break-up of his two year marriage to Annie Kilner with whom he shares three boys.

Lauryn, 32, told The Sun on Sunday: “I had always travelled up to Manchester for him to see Kairo, somewhere near training as he doesn’t get that many days off.

“Something clicked. We went back to being the way we were before.”

Son Kairo, three, was born following a brief relationship when the footballer split from childhood sweetheart Annie before getting back with her.

He told Annie about the boy while he was at a training session.

But in visits unbeknown to his wife, Kyle would take Lauryn and Kairo on day trips and even kick a ball about with them.

She said: “I remember going to a farm in Cheshire and he was feeding the animals with Kairo like all the other dads.”

The pair had a daughter last summer but Lauryn claims Kyle repeatedly denied the girl was his.

She said the footballer also “tried to control me” in an effort to keep his secret family hidden from Annie.

Fighting back tears, she says she kept asking the footballer to come clean with his wife 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: “She kept asking for proof so I showed her the DNA test but even then she doubted it was real until I pointed out my daughter’s name on the paperwork.”

As the women chatted they realised that the England defender had lied to them both.

Lauryn says: “She was asking all sorts of questions. I said, ‘I don’t want to hurt you,’ but she insisted on seeing photos, getting details.

“I showed her one of Kyle and Kairo playing football together.

“I know he has got photos of our kids up at Manchester City, I’ve met him lots of times since Kairo was born too. He has met his daughter.”

Kyle, who married Annie in 2021, has moved into a flat near the family’s home in Prestbury, Cheshire.
