Ioan Gruffudd's Estranged Wife Says He 'Abandoned' Their Kids, They Cry Every Day

Ioan Gruffudd's Estranged Wife Says He 'Abandoned' Their Kids, They Cry Every Day

Alice Evans is speaking out in response to an article that criticized the way she’s handled her divorce from estranged husband Ioan Gruffudd.

You might remember that Alice broke the news of her split from Ioan in a tweet back in January. At the time, she said that her husband of 20 years “has announced he is to leave his family, starting next week.”

Ioan made the split official in early March by filing for divorce from Alice.

A doctor named Ann Buscho wrote an “open letter” to Alice in which she wondered her the couple’s daughters feel about the publicity from the split.

In her lengthy response, Alice revealed that her daughters don’t read news about their parents and what actually upsets them is that their father abandoned them.

Alice Evans’ Response to Ann Buscho’s Open Letter

This is interesting.

I’ve read it twice and I’m still not sure what she is trying to say.

Two paragraphs worry me. Here is one:

1) ‘I wonder how your daughters feel about this publicity….. ‘

My kids are 11 and 7. Their obsessions are TikTok, Roblox and Mindcraft. Do you really think they are checking the Daily Mail website for info about their parents’ divorce?

My eldest could barely cite a film I have been in and my youngest only knows her Dad is a “ Super-pero”.

They have no idea what is in the press about their parents and probably never will. We are at best, minor celebrities and the ‘all over the news and social media’ you talk about is fish and chip paper within a couple of days. Moreover, given the amount of press that exists about their parents generated over their lifetimes I can seriously tell you they are so used to it – they just don’t give a damn. Imagine being born famous. Most of us can’t ( I certainly can’t!) but it’s a whole other world for those who are, and I’m trying my best to raise them to be happy, empathetic people whilst bearing in mind that from birth, their experience is undeniably different from mine, yours or pretty much anyone we know.

You know what they ARE upset about though?

That their Dad walked out and abandoned them out of the blue. Without explanation. Yes that’s what they cry about every day. Will their Dad ever come back and play in the pool or the yard with them? Will they ever have a family again?

I choose to share the details of my divorce because a) I am lucky enough to posses the gene that enables me to not give a shit about what people think of me and b) I have realized that there are thousands, if not millions of women out there going through the same thing, who, during this endless pandemic, believe that they are completely alone. I want them to know they are not.

Peace and love
