Michael Clarke’s whose divorce with first wife Kyly was finalized in February this year has confirmed his new relationship with Pip Edwards. Clarke was married to Kyly for seven years.
Just one week after the couple was spotted enjoying a romantic dinner in Bondi, Michael confirmed the romance on his Big Sports Breakfast radio show on Monday. The 39-year-old former Australia cricketer was asked by his co-host, rugby league journalist Phil Rothfield, about his date with Pip, 40, and he didn't seem the least bit embarrassed.
Phil brought up that Michael had been featured in the 'spotted' section of a newspaper, but he didn't mention who with. “You know what? I did the right thing by him, I didn’t mention your female company at the table,” Phil said.
Michael responded with a laugh: “Why not? Listen, buddy, you can always mention my female company. How dare you leave that out.” Pip Edwards is the co-founder of PE Nation activewear.
Clarke and Edwards have been spotted out and about together over the last few months but refused to confirm the relationship. The 40-year-old Edwards has 12-year-old son Justice Maximus with designer Dan Single, while Michael and Kyly Clarke have four-year-old daughter Kelsey Lee.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Michael has been telling friends he wants to keep the relationship 'low-key' for the sake of his and Pip's respective children.
