He said: “Our relationship is actually quite good. I stay at the family home whenever I want to see the kids.

“We’re keeping it civil and hopefully we can remain friends. We’ll always have a future because she’s the mother of my children.

“I signed for New York Rugby United so things are going to change. It’s just exciting – a different change of pace, something that’s really needed.

“I’m sure Una wouldn’t mind a little holiday in New York. She’ll drop the kids with me and then she can go and enjoy the sights.”

It comes after Una revealed her new man on Instagram last month, telling fans she couldn’t “hide him” any longer.

Una wrote beside the photo, where the new couple are posing in front of a Christmas tree: “I have tried to hide him but he’s too tall.”

Fans of the 36-year-old – who is mum to daughter Aoife, six, and son Tadgh, three – piled in to offer their congratulations.

If follows confirmation of the end of Una’s six-year marriage to rugby star Ben in July.

At the time, a spokesperson for the Irish star told The Sun: “I can confirm Una and Ben have separated and she’s in Ireland with her mum and kids, but there will be no further comment to make.”

It wasn’t until months later, however, that the singer broke her silence on the split.

In an interview with Hello! magazine, she said: “My life has been turned upside down and I’m trying to figure it out. I’m taking each day as it comes and just being there for my children.”

Speaking of the two children she shares with Ben, Una added: “I’m so lucky to have them. I never feel lonely or alone. They’re lovely company and have brought joy into my life. The most important job for me is to be the best parent I can and to provide and look after them. They’re my priority.”
