The publication claimed that Alex’s wife is aware of his infidelity, and added that they’re working on getting their marriage ‘back on track’.

He married Lynsey in 2014, and the couple share daughter Daphne, who was born in March 2017.
Alex, who was born in Ashford Kent, was born with hand and arm deformities, and wears a prosthetic leg.
