England football player Kyle Walker has issued an apology to his wife Annie Kilner after he fathered a second child with model Lauryn Goodman.

The 33-year-old already had three children with Kilner when in 2020 Goodman gave birth to their son.

Talking to The Sun, the England international told the newspaper it was time he "own up" to his mistakes.

Walker and his wife Kilner are currently expecting their fourth child.

Walker, who also plays as a defender for Manchester City, told The Sun: "What I’ve done is horrible and I take full responsibility.

“I made idiot choices and idiot decisions. I can’t begin to think or imagine what Annie is going through. I’ve tried to ask her but there’s pain and hurt.

“The only person to blame is me. I have roles and responsibilities that I’m aware of and I’ve made stupid choices. But I need to own up to my mistakes — I owe it to everyone.”

Kilner found out about Walker's second child with Goodman when the model sent her a message on Instagram, according to the newspaper.

Walker added: "My actions have caused a lot of pain to a lot of people. I'm sorry because, as a family, this isn't meant to happen."

The England player met his wife Kilner as teenagers but are now reported to be spending time apart as she prepares to give birth.

As Walker told The Sun: "To not be there when she needs me the most, but to know that you've caused that hurt, that's something I have to live with now."

In 2020, the Manchester City footballer was forced to apologise after it was widely reported he held a party at his Cheshire home in violation of the nation’s lockdown measures.

The club promised that the 30-year-old would be subject to an “internal disciplinary procedure”.

“I reflect on, you know, my decision making,” he told BBC Radio 5 Live at the time. “It was bad decisions from me at an important time for the country and the world. I take full responsibility for that but I’m moving on now.”

Walker and Kilner are spending some time apart, The Sun reported.
