Kyle has been rumoured to be the biological dad since the reality star gave birth to the tot in August, which she claimed to have welcomed with ‘another footballer’. 

Sources close to the couple say Annie has known for some time the baby is Kyle’s and it did not spark her decision to take a break from the marriage.

A friend told MailOnline: ‘Kyle and Annie have been on the rocks for some time.

‘There are lots of historic issues between them, as well as his dalliances with Lauryn, that has led to the break up.

‘They are both putting on a united front for the sake of the three children they share together, who are their main concern.

‘The marriage isn’t 100 per cent over, it could be rescued, but there needs to be lots of healing first.

‘They need to take a break from the relationship to restock and reevaluate.’

The friend added: ‘Kyle is no longer in contact with Lauryn.

‘Her stirring behind the scenes have really affected Annie and had a detrimental impact on her health.’

Rumours circulated over the paternity of Lauryn’s daughter after the reality star appeared to drop a number of hints Kyle is the father. 

She revealed that her daughter's surname begins with W, writing in her Instagram bio: 'Mummy to @kairowalker & KW'

It took a year for Lauryn to publicly reveal the name of her son but she had a necklace made of his initials ‘KW’ which match his father’s.

Eagle-eyed fans then noticed Lauryn has been liking a series of comments asking if Manchester City player Kyle is the father to her second child.

Followers also believe she has dropped a number of ‘clues’ in recent months.

Lauryn’s followers noticed in one photo of her daughter she had the slogan ‘I’m A Lion’ on her chest, with questions raised if it is a reference to the England footballer.

The reality star did little to quash speculation as she liked a comment from a fan who wrote: ‘I’m a lion so is five now the magic number’.

Lauryn also liked the comment: ‘I’m actually shook! As Kyle Walker must be the dad with all these clues!! But is he having a relationship with 2 women?! Jeez all the poor kids involved.’

A comment that read: ‘you do realise people can be made to keep quiet, both babies surnames are Walker. Stop being thick’, was also liked by Lauren.

The TV personality said previously: ‘I know there is speculation around little ones father and like I’ve stated publicly when the time is right.’

The footballer met Annie when he was 18 while he was playing at his hometown club Sheffield United when the glamour model was just 16.

Annie said previously: ‘When we started going out it was love at first sight.’

After nine years together, the split briefly in May 2019 after an alleged string of romps with reality TV star, Laura Brown.

It was reported at the time Ex On The Beach star Laura confessed to Annie about the supposed sexual encounters which happened in the back of Kyle’s £200,000 Bentley Bentayga.

Annie reportedly kicked Kyle out of their £3.5million mansion following the scandal but the couple reunited months later. 

There were also allegations he held a sex party in lockdown with escorts and shared texts with a Playboy model while on England duty in France. 

Kyle also became a dad for the fourth time after a short-term relationship with Lauryn. His son Kairo is now three.

Annie claimed that days before Kyle allegedly met Lauryn, she suffered a miscarriage, and was devastated when she claimed he confessed that the reality star was pregnant.

She told The Sun On Sunday at the time: ‘I don’t know what my thoughts or feelings are any more. I feel dead inside. Each day is filled with pain.

‘I don’t think I’ll ever be the same again because of what he’s done. It makes me really sad that I’ve been damaged so badly when I’ve done nothing to deserve it.

‘I’ve tried to hate him but how can I hate the man my kids love so much? Before the infidelity he was my best friend, my soulmate. I could count on him for anything.’

Kyle went on to issue a public apology. 

He said: ‘I understand that my position as a professional footballer brings the responsibility of being a role model.

‘As such, I want to apologise to my family, friends, football club, supporters and the public for letting them down.’

After reuniting the couple secretly married in December 2021, a year after Kyle proposed.  

Split drama

The couple were said to be having furious bust-ups over Lauryn which culminated in their split. 

Sources say Annie threw the Manchester City star out of their £2.4million mansion five months ago.

 The footballer, who is said to be living in a penthouse flat in Manchester now, was accused of seeing his ex-girlfriend influencer Lauryn again by Annie in a series of bitter rows and he finally admitted he had renewed his friendship with her.

Kyle promised never to see her again late last year and in an effort to appease his wife stopped following Lauryn on social media and blocked his former mistress, a source said.

But the England star was said to have met the son Kairo he had with Lauryn while he had split from Annie for the first time despite his assurances to his wife that he was no longer in contact with Lauryn.

The friend said: ‘This break-up is extremely sad because Kyle and Annie, despite their previous problems and rows, had been doing their best to making a go of it. Things were getting better. This is all very upsetting for Annie.’

Lauryn from Brighton, has never confirmed who the father of her second child is but her daughter has the same initials ‘KW’ as her son. However, she has denied the father is ‘another footballer.’

But the source added: ‘Annie has no time for Lauryn, but she is aware she was staying up in Cheshire for a while a year or so ago. The big question for Annie is whether Kyle met Lauryn during that time she had moved north and whether he has lied to Annie.

‘Annie and Kyle have had a series of rows and Lauryn is generally in the middle of it. None of their friends can really put their finger on the dynamics of the marriage.

‘People are saying lawyers might be getting involved and seeking a settlement. But nobody knows whether there was a pre-nuptial agreement or whether they will get back together in a week or so. They do love each other and are great parents to their sons.’

Locals have revealed that Walker was thrown out by Annie five months ago after a series of blazing rows.

The couple had a series of heated public arguments in the months leading up to him being thrown out – followed by a flare up at the gates at their mansion in Prestbury, Cheshire, as she refused to let him in.

Since that day, the Man City and England defender has been seen much less frequently and only visits by arrangement.

It is thought he has been staying in a penthouse flat in Manchester city centre. His only visits are occasional ones to visit his three children and to take them out for day trips.

Annie is now believed to live alone in his mansion, which used to be owned by ex-City midfielder Stephen Ireland.

One local said: ‘There were some blazing rows. We don’t see much of Kyle since she threw him out at the end of August.

‘And one time after that they argued over the driveway security fence. He was trying to get back into his house but she wouldn’t let him as she blocked and barricaded the driveway. She was really angry with him and called him all sorts of names.’
