Louise Redknapp explains why she kept ex Jamie's surname after their divorce

Louise Redknapp decided not to revert back to her maiden name of Nurding after her divorce from ex-husband Jamie . He has now remarried by tying the knot with his pregnant girlfriend Frida Andersson earlier this week

The 46-year-old former Eternals singer was married to the former footballer for nearly 20 years but didn't revert back to her maiden name of Nurding after their marriage broke down.Jamie has since married pregnant girlfriend Frida Andersson, who changed her name to Redknapp on Instagram shortly after they tied the knot.

Earlier this year, Louise spoke out about her decision to keep the name and insisted she has not changed her mind about ditching Redknapp.She told You magazine: "People ask me about that a lot. First and foremost, my kids are Redknapps. "I don’t want to turn up at a school function and have a different second name to my children. I’m proud. Those little things mean a lot to me."

She continued: "Also, I’ve been a Redknapp longer than I’ve been anything else in my life.I was married to Jamie for longer than my time without him. So it’s really hard to… It’s like my last bit to cling on to."I feel like a Redknapp." headtopics.com

It was previously reported that Louise was given very short notice from former Liverpool FC midfielder Jamie about his plans to marry pregnant Frida on Monday. Louise therefore "didn't have a lot of time to prepare" emotionally, a source told OK!, adding: "Louise was quite shocked, she only found out very recently.

"They kept it very under wraps, nobody even knew they were engaged. It's very mixed emotions for her, it's difficult because she's spoken quite openly about her regret... but, unfortunately, you can't turn the clock back."The source added Louise was only informed of the surprise nuptials because Jamie wanted their sons – Charley, 17, and Beau, 12 – to enter Kensington and Chelsea Register Office with him.

"He wanted his sons to walk in with him but it was a very small affair," they continued. "She only knew because the boys were there." While Louise put on a brave face as she was pictured out and about this week, Frida, who has now changed her Instagram handle from Andersson to Redknapp, stunned in a white gown as she walked down the aisle.

The 37-year-old bride wore an off-shoulder white dress which showed off her baby bump and wore her her hair down in loose waves.Meanwhile, Jamie, 48, looked dapper in a navy suit with white shirt and black tie. Jamie and Frida have been together since 2019 and will welcome their first child together in November. headtopics.com

Back in May, Frida, who has four children from her marriage to US hedge fund manager Jonathan Lourie, confirmed reports they were expecting a baby together on Instagram.As they prepare for the newborn, Jamie's parents Sandra and Harry Redknapp, who attended the wedding alongside Jamie's brother Mark, have expressed their joy.

"We're very excited. Jamie is very happy and Frida is happy," Harry told The Mirror earlier this year. "We're lucky that Jamie has two boys already, Charley and Beau, and our other son Mark has five children, so this will be grandchild number eight. We've got our hands full!"
