Harry Redknapp opens up on son Jamie’s ‘difficult’ divorce from Louise


HARRY Redknapp has admitted that it was “difficult” for his family when his son Jamie divorced his wife Louise.

The former football manager said that neither his son or daughter-in-law were “used” to the idea of divorce, but he and his wife Sandra swore they would “never interfere”.

Speaking to The Times, Harry added that, despite the challenges of Jamie’s divorce, everyone has managed to stay on good terms.

In a joint interview with his wife Sandra, Harry Redknapp reflected on Jamie’s divorce from Louise in 2017 after 19 years of marriage.

He said: “It was difficult when Jamie and Louise got divorced because both sets of our parents were married until they died, so we weren’t used to that.”

During the interview, Harry and his wife Sandra also reflected on their own marriage, after publishing a book documenting their love story.

Reflecting on their own family life, Sandra added: “I’ve tried to make life easy for him because his job has been so stressful. 

“When we had babies, fathers didn’t do a lot and Harry never changed a nappy.

“But he would take them for a walk in the pram to get them to sleep. When they became toddlers, he always had them with him.”

Back in August, Louise admitted she hasn’t dated anyone since her split from Jamie, because her focus has been her two sons Charley, 18, and Beau, 13. 

Jamie married model Frida Andersson in October 2021 and welcomed their first child, son Raphael, together in November.

Speaking to HELLO! about life four years on from her divorce, Louise confessed the split and Jamie’s new marriage have had a lasting impact on their sons. 

“I’ve felt this as a mum and, to say this in the most sort of respectful way, my boys’ lives changed dramatically and then it changed again when obviously Jamie got married and had a family,” she explained.

Explaining why she hasn’t dated recently, Louise pointed out: “Their life changed and I felt like I needed to be their one staple.

“That’s just something I think a lot of mums would feel.”
