New idea understand that the couple realized their relationship had “just run its course” before calling time a few months ago.
“Everything is very friendly. They’re still figuring it out, but there are two kids involved and Julia and Dan are determined to put their daughters first, ”says a friend, who confirms that there is no meanness between the two parties.
“They’ve been through a lot together and I think they realized it was time to move on. I’m pretty sure they’ll remain friends, ”adds the boyfriend.
Julia, 53, is said to have shared the news with friends and colleagues including co-host Dr Chris Brown on the set of NSW I’m a celebrity … Get me out of here!, where she has been for weeks, while Dan stays in Melbourne.
News of the marriage breakdown comes after Julia publicly revealed that she had had an eyelid lift and had her “eyeballs cut off.”
She also recently embarked on a three month weight loss journey. The friend says that Julia is currently focusing on her children, as well as her own physical and mental well-being.
She and Dan met two decades ago in London through mutual friends and got married in Las Vegas on New Years Eve in 2005.
They share two daughters, Ruby, 15, and Sophie, 13, whom they still raise together.
Julia is the first to admit that their relationship hasn’t always been perfect.
Earlier this year she said Stellar magazine that she thinks she will leave Dan “once a year” because of their arguments.
However, she also admitted that she couldn’t imagine being without the man she treated for breast cancer in 2012.
