It’s a far cry from the blissfully happy pictures Mish has been posting on her social media of their recent European holiday. The family enjoyed an adventure in Croatia, which she described as “amazing” and “heaven”.
Yet earlier this year there were reports the couple were leading increasingly separate lives and were arguing over everything from their careers to parenting.
During Michelle’s stint on Dancing with the Stars this year, she and Steve were said to be finding it difficult to handle the time they were forced to spend apart.
But in March, Michelle insisted they were just a normal couple with the same issues everyone else had. “We’re just like any other family who have full-time jobs and children; we’re not special!” she divulged.
“We didn’t plan to be so busy but that’s often the way it is – you have to figure it out as you go!”
But in June, Michelle admitted during WHO’s Raw Talks podcast that she struggles with the constant rumours about her and Steve’s relationship.
“Sometimes I don’t deal with it well. Sometimes it really, really hurts me,” she explained.
Michelle and Steve first got together in 2013 after meeting while working together on The Biggest Loser.
Before officially stepping out as a couple, they were both in other relationships, Steve witha woman known only as ‘Froso’, the mother of two of his children, Ella, 11, and Jack, 8, and Michelle with her former business partner and gym owner, Bill Moore.
