Ben Foden reveals his new wife is ‘very different’ to his ex Una Healy

The rugby player married his new wife after just two weeks of dating

Ben Foden has revealed his new wife Jackie Belanoff Smith is “very different” compared to his ex Una Healy.

The rugby player married the American socialite on a boat in Nantucket back in August, after just two weeks of dating.

Ben’s whirlwind marriage came just one year after he split from former Saturdays star Una, who he was married to for six years.

Speaking to OK! magazine about his love life, Ben said: “Una and Jackie are two very different people.”

“When I was married to Una I was very much in love with her. She’s a super-talented, brilliant woman and when I met Jackie, she came to me at a time when my life was a bit all over the place.

“She was very different, something that I needed and I love everything about her.”

Addressing their quickie wedding, the sports star said: “Obviously a rushed decision, but an easy decision… I’m an old romantic at heart.”

The 34-year-old, who shares two kids with Una, also revealed his plans to have children with Jackie.

He said: “It’s definitely something I’ve talked about with Jackie. I think yeah, when the time’s right.”

“Jackie and I are very new but we’re having great fun doing what we’re doing so we’ll see where the future takes us.”
