It's never easy to break bad news to your children.
And heartbroken Myleene Klass has revealed she cannot tell her daughters four-year-old Ava, and 14-month-old Hero that her husband has left them.
The 34-year-old presenter told The Sun: 'I can’t bear to tell my kids that Daddy is never coming home.'
Putting on a brave face: Myleene Klass has revealed that she cannot face telling her children Eva and Hero that their husband Graham Quinn has left
Last week it was revealed that Graham Quinn told Myleene he was leaving on her 34th birthday in April, just six months after they married.
A friend told the paper Myleene said: 'How can I tell them their daddy is never coming home How do you tell a
young child their father doesn’t want to be with them any more'
'I’ve never been so hurt — how could he do this It’s heartbreaking for me but it will even more devastating for Ava and Hero.'
'I never thought this day would come. I married for life, but now it’s over.'
Heartbroken: Myleene is said to have told a friend she cannot believe her marriage is over
The TV presenter has tried to put on a brave face in the wake of Graham's departure but is said to be planning to sell the 3.2million home they shared in Hertfordhire.
Myleene is said to be staying at a friend's home in London with her children.
Last weekend Myleene, who has lost a considerable amount of weight in the wake of the split, pulled herself together to host a Jubilee concert in Hyde Park.
She was seen with her daughters who appeared to be blissfully unaware of their mother's pain.
It is claimed he has seen their two daughters, Ava, four, and Hero, one, just once since leaving the family home in Hertfordshire – and has barely spoken to Miss Klass.
‘Myleene still can’t take it all in,’ the friend told the Daily Mail. ‘Graham came home that night, packed his things and said he was off and that the marriage was over. Myleene begged him to stay – she thought there must be a way they could make it work.
In happier times: Myleene and Graham married in October last year but he walked out just six months later
‘But he’s barely spoken to her since. No one can understand it – of course they had their problems, just like any couple, but there was no warning sign, no big row beforehand.
‘They have two young daughters and he has responsibilities. Myleene’s been left with two little girls to look after on her own.
'Myleene has been in floods of tears for the past few weeks. Of course the heartbreak has affected how she looks – she’s not been eating much. It’s only really starting to sink in now that Graham won’t be coming back home and it’s over, but she’s still stunned.’
It appears that Graham's departure wasn't a spur of the moment decision and he already had a new flat lined up.
A source said: ‘When Graham left, Myleene thought he would be staying with friends. Then she found out he had bought a flat. You can’t just buy property in a few days – so he must have been planning his departure for months, which makes Myleene feel sick.’
The pair met 2001 when Quinn was a bodyguard for pop group Hear'Say which Myleene was part of.
However they split when it emerged that Mr Quinn had jumped bail after being arrested for heroin possession in Ireland.
Although the couple became engaged in 2005 they didn't marry until last October in a ceremony with just 16 guests.
