Louise Redknapp, 46, has vented her frustration over “double standards” after ex-husband Jamie Redknapp, 47, was hailed a “great dad” for taking their two children on holiday. The former Eternal singer split from the football pundit back in 2017 and has now shared her annoyance that she was not praised for her dedication to looking after Charlie, 16, and Beau, 12.
Not one person has ever said well done to me
She revealed: “This is of no unkindness towards Jamie at all, he’s a great dad.
“But… it was like, ‘Oh, look how amazing, he’s taking his children on holiday, what an amazing man’.”
She continued: “And I would sit there at home going, ‘For 15 years I’ve taken my kids away on our own when he’s been working. 15 years, not one person has ever said well done to me’.
“So, it’s just these double standards that are out there and I’m not even placing blame. I think it’s just the way we’ve all conditioned ourselves to think,” she added to Headliners on BBC.
It comes as Louise shared she had been given the cold shoulder on dating apps following her split with the football star.
Louise admitted it has been difficult to “navigate” single life after her split from her husband of 19 years.
The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant admitted she felt “baffled” when a man began to ignore her messages on a dating app, after they had exchanged messages for a while.
Louise has been single for four years since she split from ex Liverpool player Jamie.
While Jamie has been spotted out and about with model Frida Andersson-Lourie, Louise has kept quiet on her love life until now.
In an excerpt from her book shared by The Sun, Louise explained how she was ignored after talking with a prospective suitor about a bike ride.
She said: “I had what I thought was a good chat with a guy, and then one day he asked me what I was up to.
“I said, ‘Oh, I’m just going for a bike ride’. And that was the end of that.

“It’s been five months and no reply,” she added.
Louise was baffled by the radio silence and it left her wondering what she had done wrong.
The television star continued: “I’m just sitting here wondering what was it that I said? Are bike rides that unattractive?
“Basically, this is a way to say the new world of dating is so opaque and difficult to navigate.”
The mum of two admitted that it was “difficult” to be a singleton in the modern landscape.
She explained: “It’s easy to feel you’ve done or said something wrong, when in reality it’s not on you.”
Since her split with Jamie, both parties had remained single until Jamie began dating again last August when he was first seen out with Frida.
Frida has modelled for brands including Escape and is signed to Mrs Robinson Management, an agency for older models.
