Brendan Cole’s wife has reportedly put her foot down and demanded their family up sticks and move to Majorca in a ‘bid to stop his partying’.
The axed Strictly star caused a stir earlier this month when he was spotted at showbiz ‘do the TRIC Awards a mere 18 hours Zoe gave birth to their second child.
Lifestyle blogger Zoe, 35, is said to be thinking a move to the sunny Balearic Islands, which are a popular tourist destination for families, would help their marriage as Brendan spends time away on his UK dance tour.
A source told the Sun : “Zoe has told friends she is finding it increasingly difficult to cope without Brendan and it’s starting to take its toll.
“She’s asked him to move to Majorca permanently in the hope that it will help them to reconnect.
“But Brendan knows he won’t be able to find as much work there and it will be hard to make a living,” the insider added.
The source also claimed the couple have hired a nanny to help Zoe with two-week-old son Dante and their five-year-old daughter Aurelia while Brendan is away with his All Night Long UK tour.
During the Bromley leg, Brendan confirmed he’s reined in the boozy dos since becoming a dad for a second time.
“I had to stop going out at night. It’s been very quiet on the home front,” he revealed.
“We’ve just had a baby boy. Two weeks he’s been on the scene. He is gorgeous, of course, but it’s been a hard couple of weeks. Sleepless nights take their toll.”
Hinting that Zoe was the driving force behind his decision, a source previously told The Sun , “Brendan knows he needs to rein in his late nights and Zoe has clearly got through to him.”
However, Zoe took to Instagram to prove her marriage is going strong, captioning a loved-up throwback: “Not long now my love @brendancoleinsta ! Beach days are coming. Cannot wait!”
Known for his outspoken ways on Strictly Come Dancing, Brendan once credited his family life for helping him control his temper in front of the judges.
“I wouldn’t say it’s mellowed me, but it has changed me. Everything I do now is for Aurelia,” he previously told the BBC’s One Show.
“Often I disagree with the judges but stop myself because I don’t want her looking back and saying ‘Daddy, you were a bit of a d.'”
Before marrying Zoe, the professional dancer was linked to a slew of famous women including Natasha Kaplinsky, Lady Victoria Hervey and Martine McCutcheon.
But meeting Zoe and having a family changed all that.
“Parenting does change you. All the focus goes to the child and obviously my wife,” he previously told Day & Night.
