Jamie Redknapp, 47, revealed his eldest son is recovering from a hernia operation on Thursday.

Jamie and Louise Redknapp’s eldest son Charley, 16, is resting up after the procedure when he was taken to hospital for surgery.

Jamie, who also has a son Beau, 12, with his ex-wife, shared the news on Thursday morning during an interview on Good Morning Britain about the importance of kids playing sport, when he stated that Charley was “out of action” for a while.

Speaking with Ranvir Singh and Charlotte Hawkins, he said: “My youngest has got a game on Sunday. He’s in the academy for Chelsea."

He continued: "My eldest Charley had a hernia operation, so he’s out of action. No rugby for him for a while.”

Jamie and ex-wife Louise announced their split in 2017 after 19 years of marriage.

In recent weeks, Louise has admitted she “regrets” her starring role in Strictly Come Dancing in 2016 after it led to the eventual split with her retired footballer husband.

The 46-year-old said she wishes she didn’t take part in popular ballroom dancing show and has said she wishes she had done things differently.

In her new book, You’ve Got This, the former Eternal singer said: “If I’d done the show four years earlier, this wouldn’t have happened. I wouldn’t have walked away from my marriage.”

She added that she would have been "too scared" to leave Jamie if she hadn't taken part in the show, despite it opening up a new career path for her.

When discussing whether she would go back on Strictly again if she could go back in time, she admitted: "No. it wasn't worth putting anyone I loved or love through the heartache."

And Jamie admitted that it was a difficult split for him too, as he revealed in September last year that he was often teased by his celebrity friends about the 'Strictly curse' following his divorce.

Since the split, Jamie has started dating Swedish model Frida Andersson-Lourie, 37, who is signed with a specialist agency for women over 25 and has starred in campaigns for the likes of Escada.

The pair began dating in August 2020 after meeting through mutual friends and have been showing their affection for one another publicly throughout their relationship.

The couple have caught a few eyes as the loved-up duo were recently spotted in a tender embrace as they walked through the streets of London.
