They were happily married for 19 years, but today Jamie Redknapp and Louise Redknapp only speak to each other about their sons.
Louise shares Charley, 16, and Beau, 12, with ex Jamie, 47, while the footballing superstar is expecting his third baby with new girlfriend Frida Andersson-Lourie, 37.
Now friends of the pair tell OK! that Jamie and Louise keep the conversation focused on their children when they come into contact.
One source claimed that the March release of Louise's book You've Got This: And Other Things I Wish I Had Known had soured the 46-year-old's once friendly relationship with her ex
"She and Jamie speak about the boys. He wasn’t happy about her doing the book. They communicate about the boys."
But after 20 years as part of the Redknapp family, Louise remains in close contact with Jamie's parents.
The source explained: "She loves Harry and Sandra – they’re great grandparents."
OK! approached both Louise and Jamie's representatives for comment.
In her book, Louise explained how she felt unfulfilled and alone as her husband’s career as a footballer and then pundit thrived.
The former Eternal singer gave up her own career to raise their family, but returned to public life in 2016 when she agreed to appear on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.
Coming close to winning the show reignited Louise's passion for performing, but this came at a price – and she has since claimed it ended her marriage.
Louise's pal Lizzie Cundy has said Louise will be feeling 'shocked' after finding out her ex Jamie will be welcoming a child with Frida.
"Louise will feel shocked and her heart will be hurting," she shared.
"I burst into tears when Jason told me he was going to be a dad again.
"You know it’s over, but you've got your family together and you just don't expect them to start another family elsewhere," she added as she spoke with Closer.
"Louise will always be in love with Jamie. It's difficult when you’ve had almost 20 years together but, as time goes on, she will find someone else.
"It's just going to be tough at the minute as everyone is talking about it.
"And if she found out via other people, that is bound to hurt, too."
Lizzie's ex-husband Jason Cundy went on to have a third child with a new flame following their divorce.
A source told OK! Louise was "knocked sideways" when she found out the news by family members.
"Louise was knocked sideways by the news. Jamie didn't tell her directly, she found out through family," they said.
"She's happy for them both and says life goes on but at the same time, she's shocked by how quickly he's moved on and that he'll be a new dad again at nearly 50.
"A new baby is always a joy but she is concerned at how it will impact their family dynamic."
