The former Leeds Rhinos star took to his Instagram stories to shut down the claims, saying it was not true and added “it’s getting boring now”.

In October 2022, it emerged that Richie – who has three young children with Countryfile presenter Helen – was expecting a baby with his new partner.

It comes as he and Helen ended their eight year marriage in April, just four months after the birth of their third child.

He has since welcomed a child, daughter Olivia, with his girlfriend.

“You are such an amazing mummy to Olivia we are very lucky. We love doing life with you and can’t wait for what the future holds together.”

Helen, 40, announced her split from England rugby league star Richie, 33, in April last year and while devastated about their split planned to keep the sportsman in her life to a certain extent for the sake of her children.

“I know that following break-ups, people often say they didn’t see it coming and it sounds like a cliche, but that was me.”

She insisted: “I want them to know that we loved each other, but things change and that’s OK too.”

Helen put the home she once shared with Richie on the market this summer before moving to Cumbria.

The Strictly Come Dancing star and Richie married in 2013 and moved into their Yorkshire property together seven years later.
