"It's very early days and Imelda wants to go slowly before stepping out into the spotlight with her new man. But she's very happy," an insider told The Irish Sun.

She said that although it was "weird to have your life as gossip", the "papers are running with it soon".

According to May, "my husband and I have the deepest love and respect for each other and are doing well".

"As you know I hate to air my laundry in public and never do but thought I should put something on here to dispel any bad rumours. I wish you and yours much love," she added.
