Aisling O’Loughlin splits from long-term partner
Aisling O’Loughlin is keeping a dignified silence on reports that she has split from her long-term partner Nick MacInnes.
The well-known broadcaster has three children with the photographer, Patrick (4), Louis (2) and baby Jacques (8 months) and has been with her half-French beau for five years.
But when asked this morning about reports that she had parted ways from her other half, the 38-year-old said: “I don’t want to add anything just yet, thanks.”
The TV star is said to have remained on good terms with her former partner but a close source said the relationship “just ran its course” and they went their separate ways a little while ago.
“They have three young children together and are determined to keep things amicable between them. There’s no hard feelings there at all, it was just time to move on,” said a source.
“Things have been difficult between them for some time now, that wasn’t a massive secret so the decision was made to part ways.”
It’s been a tricky few months for the former Xpose presenter, who left the TV3 showbiz show last August amid a massive shake-up on the programme.

Along with Aisling, Lisa Cannon was also replaced along with Peter O’Riordain as Cassie Stokes and Ruth O’Neill were made permanent presenters on the show.
However, the well-respected star said recently that she’s determined to embrace all the changes in her life and move on to a fresh 2017.
Writing on her new website ‘Exquisite.ie’, the Co Clare native said that she has changed a lot over the past year.
“Imperceptible as it is, we alter and transform, grow and mature. If anything, I feel stronger and I feel free,” Aisling said.
Speaking to RSVP Magazine last month, Aisling discussed the pros and cons of launching her own site.
She said: “It’s been quite an intense few weeks setting up Exquisite.ie – my new baby and one that requires endless feeding.
“It is extremely invigorating though, being my own boss and like many mumpreneurs across the country, I’ve had to come up with a new plan to keep the engines running so to speak.
“For me, Exquisite.ie honours all the hard work and accumulated knowledge of the past 20 years in journalism.”
