The ex-partner of Manchester City star Kyle Walker has spoken of her heartbreak after he fathered a child with another woman.
Annie Kilner says Walker’s cheating became ‘acceptable’ during their relationship but was shocked to discover he’d fallen pregnant with influencer Lauryn Goodman.

Kilner claims she suffered a miscarriage just days before Walker fell pregnant with Goodman.
“What he has done to me and our children is obscene. I can’t begin to put it into words,” Kilner told The Sun.
“He begged me to take him back but by July he was at it again. Not even three months later and someone was pregnant. My youngest was one. Who does that?”
Despite the scandal Kilner says she’s considering taking Waker back for the sake of their three children.
“I don’t know what my thoughts or feelings are any more. I feel dead inside. Each day is filled with pain,” she said.
“I don’t think I’ll ever be the same again because of what he’s done. It makes me really sad that I’ve been damaged so badly when I’ve done nothing to deserve it.”
In March 2019 Kilner was contacted by ‘Ex On The Beach’ reality TV star Laura Brown, who claimed to have slept with Walker on a number of occasions.
In a cruel twist, Kilner had also met Goodman months before discovering her husband’s infidelity with her.
“You get these messages all the time so I didn’t think too much about it. But after Laura Brown I sent it to Kyle anyway,” Kilner revealed.
“He rang me and I told him I felt terrible and he just said ‘I’ve got to tell you something. I had a one-night stand with someone’.
“I was screaming, ‘This is over, once this phone call is finished we’re done’. He interrupted and said ‘I’ve got to tell you something else’. I was screaming ‘Kyle, no, I’m begging you, there can’t be anything else’. I didn’t think ‘baby’.
“It was like a nightmare. Before I had time to think he said: ‘She says she’s pregnant and it’s mine’.”
Kyle Walker’s tumultuous time
Earlier this year Walker caused scandal after breaking coronavirus lockdown conditions by hosting a ‘sex party’ even though he has advised people to stay at home.
The 29-year-old apologised after it was widely reported he held a party involving two sex workers at his home, breaking the government’s rules on social distancing.
“I want to take this opportunity to issue a public apology for the choices I made last week which have resulted in a story today (Sunday) about my private life in a tabloid newspaper,” Walker’s statement read.
“I understand that my position as a professional footballer brings the responsibility of being a role model. As such, I want to apologise to my family, friends, football club, supporters and the public for letting them down.”
He added: “My actions in this matter are in direct contrast to what I should have been doing regarding the lockdown. And I want to re-iterate the message: Stay home, stay safe.”
