Annie Kilner hints at reconciliation with Kyle Walker as she watches the Manchester derby with their children – weeks after booting him out of the family home SuperNayr

Kyle Walker was given some additional support on Sunday afternoon as estranged wife Annie Kilner watched Manchester City thrash their bitter rivals Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium. 

The pregnant mother-of-three, 31, was joined by the couple’s young children, Roman, eleven, Riaan, seven, and five-year old Reign ahead of the game, an emphatic 3-1 victory for a home side that included her husband. 

Kilner’s appearance at the Etihad hinted at a potential olive branch for Walker, who has been living away from their sprawling Prestbury mansion after he admitted to fathering a child with influencer Lauryn Goodman out of wedlock. 

Goodman had already welcomed a son, three-year old Kairo, with the beleaguered footballer during an earlier separation from Kilner in 2020. 

Kilner arrived at the stadium shortly before kick-off and was seen being ushered in with her children by a waiting staff-member.

Walker's two-year marriage to Kilner was thought to be in tatters after the Manchester City and England full-back was named as the father of influencer Lauryn Goodman's daughter

While their father is a mainstay in Pep Guardiola’s side, his children opted to wear replicas of the number 11 shirt favoured by his one of his teammates – Belgian winger Jérémy Doku. 

They were on hand to watch City come from behind to win the game 3-1 courtesy of two goals from England ace Phil Foden and a late third from Norwegian striker Erling Haaland. 

Walker’s two-year marriage to Kilner , who he met as a teenager, was thought to be in tatters after he was named as the father of Goodman’s six-month old daughter.

In a rare interview about his personal life, the 85-England cap footballer was close to tears as he reflected on moving away from their family home in Cheshire and spending enforced time away from his three children with Kilner, who is currently pregnant with their fourth. 

Walker admitted he wanted to ‘curl up in a ball’ after his relationship with Lauryn came to light in January.

He 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 man that’s meant to love, care and be there for her, did this.’

Walker, who is expected to play a pivotal role for Gareth Southgate’s England at the European Championships in June, admits he wanted to ‘curl up in a ball’ after his relationship with Goodman came to light in January.

He added: ‘When I met Annie at 17, I never envisaged my private life being like this. I never thought I would be a father of six.

‘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.

‘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.’

In 2020, Goodman confirmed Walker was the father of her oldest child, leaving him to break the news to his devastated wife hours before it went public.

He moved out of the family home to rental accommodation in nearby Hale, Cheshire before Kilner agreed to take him back, with Kyle agreeing to sever all contact with Lauryn beyond his ongoing financial commitments.

In August 2022 Goodman revealed she was planning to relocate closer to Walker with son Kairo.

The footballer explained how he met her at a solicitors’ office to try to stop the move, which was when met his son for the first time and the couple resumed contact.

In early October 2022, he travelled to London for groin surgery and met Kyle. He confirmed the pair ended up sleeping together.

Weeks later she broke the news she was pregnant again, with Goodman messaging Kilner on December 27, 2023 revealing the truth about their relationship and the parentage of her second child.

Walker kept Goodman’s pregnancy a secret from his wife and has said it was Kilner’s own pregnancy which was ‘the straw that broke the camel’s back.’

While her footballer husband was away with his club, Goodman messaged Kilner on December 27 2023, revealing the truth about their relationship and the parentage of her second child.

The footballer has since moved out of their £2.5million home in Prestbury while Kilner remains at the property with their three sons.

‘My little boy goes to sleep with me every night and to not have him… I’m used to being away for long periods of time with England,’ he said, his voice breaking.

‘We say goodnight on FaceTime. But to know that I’m not with him because of my mistake – mistake is probably the wrong word, my choices – that’s what pains me.’

The split was confirmed days before MailOnline revealed he was the father of Goodman’s daughter, known only as ‘KW’.

MailOnline has contacted a representative for further comment.
