“Third time lucky!”
Loose Women star Andrea McLean has taken to social media to reveal that she is ‘beyond happy’ to announce her engagement to boyfriend Nick Feeney.
The TV star looked happier than ever as she cosied up to her new fiancé.
This will be Andrea’s third marriage. The Loose Women star was previously married for five years to her childhood sweetheart Nick Green. However, the pair split in 2005 after Nick discovered that Andrea was having an affair with builder Steve. She eventually went on to marry Steve, but the couple announced their separation in 2012 after Andrea admitted that she had “fought with every ounce of my being” to save the marriage before realising that she and Steve had, “grown apart”
“We both knew it. We’d tried so many times to make it work, but it was hopeless.”
The star is mum to two kids – Finlay, 15 and Amy, 10.
Speaking exclusively to Woman magazine, the top TV anchorwoman revealed that her two kids from her previous relationships were keen to see their mum happily married and settled once again with Nick, 44.
“My children would love Nick and me to get married. They are really pushing. Maybe third time lucky! In fact, the kids on both sides – his two daughters (who are 14 and 12) – and my two want it to happen. I still believe in marriage and
I’m an eternal romantic.”
After the break-down of her second marriage, the former GMTV weather girl admitted that she was absolutely “heartbroken”.
“‘After both my marriages failed I’d really given up on love. I thought I was going to be alone and I’d accepted it” Andrea confessed to Woman.
But, the Glasgow-born TV star found that she was ready to love again when she met Nick after being set up with him on a blind date by a friend.
The pair dated for a year in secret before going public with their romance. Andrea has spoken openly and emotionally about how Nick had supported her through her hysterectomy in 2016.
Talking about her relationship with Nick exclusively to Woman magazine, “Nick’s a really nice guy: he’s great fun, a good dancer and he’s gorgeous! I feel so lucky to have found him.”
Although no more details about their marriage plans have been revealed, it’s so clear that Andrea couldn’t be happier in her relationship, and is now looking forward to a loved-up future. “We’ve been together three years and it just feels right.”
