Rachel Stevens emotional as she moves out of family home six months after split from husband

Rachel Stevens has taken to Instagram to share that she's been feeling some "mixed emotions" as she moves out of the home she shared with husband Alex Bourne, six months after the former couple announced their separation.

Sharing a selfie with her 320k followers the retired singer wrote: " Hey all. Hope you’re really well. What a week it’s been… sorry I’ve been MIA.

"I’ve just moved home today and I’m up to my ears in boxes and feeling such a mix of emotions. I’m so incredibly grateful for the love and support I have around me.

"Trusting the process and the magic of new beginnings."

Fans were quick to send positive thoughts to the star, with one writing: "Congratulations on your new home Rachel [heart emoji] fresh beginnings always feel a bit weird at first but in a strange way, it does work itself out to be right, get the tunes on whilst unpacking! It always helps xxxx"

While another wrote they were sending the former S Club 7 star "big hugs", and a third added: "Sending love to you and your girls in your new home."

Last July Rachel shared the news of her split from Alex with fans on social media. In the statement she wrote: "I just wanted to share with you all that after time and consideration the difficult decision has been made for Alex and I to separate.

"While we are no longer partners in marriage, we will remain partners in parenthood to our beautiful girls and continue with love and respect for each other.

"I feel so incredibly grateful for the life we built together and will now continue to be focused on moving forward united as a family."

Rachel and Alex share two daughters together, Amelie, 11, and eight-year-old Minnie, with many fans praising the way the amicable split has been handled as the two put on a “united front” for the sake of their children.

The couple, who were originally childhood sweethearts announced their split just one month before they would have celebrated their 13th anniversary.

Before their split Rachel had appeared on Roxie Nafousi's The Moments That Made Me podcast, where she discussed how she and Alex met: "We went out with each other when we were 12, we met at youth club and I was besotted with him.

“We went out for probably about four weeks and when you're that age that was a really long time!”

She then added: "We then went on dates again when we were like 16 and then again when we were 18 and then we parted ways, you know, obviously I went off and did my thing, he went off and did his thing."
