Taking to her Instagram on Father’s Day, Sophie announced that they were to “go on different journeys individually”.

But she added: “We will forever be best mates and a family first … You are truly the best Dad to our babies I could ever imagine having, and forever my soulmate. We all love you so much.”

On Monday, they took to social media once more to clear up any claims that there might be animosity between the pair.

“Separation more often than not comes with the assumption of animosity or hatred, and whilst it hasn’t always been easy navigating through co-parenting under the same roof this year [which has included family holidays, continual support of personal careers and no changes to our social setting], we truly appreciate how lucky we are to have each other,” she wrote.

“We are merely a case of two kids who fell in love hard early, and are now two adults who love and respect each other enough to part ways amicably.

“We have always had – a still do daily – operate as one mind, and that’s why there’s been so much understanding with such a sensitive topic. 

“Our family and close friends have seen what a powerful connection and strong bond we’ve been able to maintain not only for the sake of our beautiful children – but for each other too – which we think has been very evident. 

“We are aware we have a really unique relationship, but one we’ve been navigating privately for a long time hand-in-hand, side-by-side. 

“We’re so proud of us and what we’ve been able to achieve together, and we look forward to continuing life together & forever as a family. That’s enough out of us, we have no more to say on the matter.”

The pair first started dating in 2011 when Sophie was 20, and Jaryd was 19. 

She was diagnosed with poly cystic ovarian syndrome, and was told she would have trouble conceiving, but after being with Jaryd for two years, the pair became became pregnant and their son was born in April 2013.

She began her blog The Young Mummy about becoming a mum at 22.
