Countryfile favourite Helen Skelton, 37, has two sons, Ernie, five and Louis, three, with her husband and professional rugby league player Richie Myler, 30. While the Friday On The Farm star took the opportunity to celebrate his recent achievements via Instagram, she also spoke of the inevitable “lows” that come with being a sportsman.
Helen shared a snap of herself and Richie from one of his recent rugby wins with the Rhinos alongside a throwback picture of them celebrating in the past.
Richie plays as a scrum-half for the Leeds Rhinos in the Betfred Super League and the England Knights at international level.
In view of her 214,000 Instagram followers, Helen said Richie also celebrates her successes too.
She wrote: “Still riding on coat tails……. so what, he rides on mine too. (You got to celebrate the highs because the lows are plentiful) #winisawin #goodtimes #makingmemories #grateful #proud #throwback #team.”
