Meet Hugh Hanley, Michelle Heaton Husband
Michelle Heaton is currently married to her husband Hugh Hanley. They reportedly met after Michelle’s marriage with her ex-husband Andy Scott-Lee ended in June 2008 after tieing the knot in October 2006. The couple dated and eventually tied the knot on 19 July 2010.
In July 2022, Michelle made a tribute to her husband on the 12th anniversary of their marriage. She wrote, “12 years ago we said I do on that beach.. on my birthday.”
She added, “12 years ago we promised to be there for each other good and bad, sickness and health, through thick or thin! What we didn’t know was what lay ahead. What I have put you through in addiction, the life-changing surgeries I’ve had, the ups and downs of being married to someone as crazy as me 🤪 you have been through more thick than 100 men!”
Michelle concluded, “I thank god every day for you. I don’t only think your fit as .. 😍 but you are my best friend. My soul mate … I love you baby beyond … Happy anniversary xx.”
Hugh has also opened up about his wife’s struggles with alcoholism. Speaking with Lorraine during an interview, he explained, “The last three or four years have been extremely tough knowing Michelle was in there but the addictions were ripping her apart.”
Hugh added, “There were many times where I could have walked away, it would have been easier. There’s no getting away from it, life with an addict is extraordinarily hard. We’ve got a second chance.”
The pair of them spoke to OK! where they talked about how they coped when Michelle was having a hard time. Hugh said their marriage has now improved ‘massively’ adding that it’s a lot more fun now, “easy and stress-free”. Michelle claimed that things have improved since she believed having fun was the key to a successful marriage, but the past few years had been anything but that.
Michelle said: “I suppose, in my mind, having fun was the answer to marriage, and my idea of having fun was not fun in the past few years. So Hugh is absolutely buzzing as he gets to go to bed early with me, as now I want to go to bed early! Part of me used to be scared to go to sleep as I was afraid of not waking up, but I’m not anymore.”
She said that in the beginning, he was ‘”full of resentment” so it was difficult due to him having a tough time. But Hugh said he managed to stay strong due to knowing Michelle wasn’t being herself.
Hugh said: “We’ve been together for 14 years now, so I was well aware of who Michelle is and that this wasn’t her. I just think it was the desire and hope to get my wife back.”
Hugh Hanley And Michelle Heaton Children
The married couple shares two children. Michelle and Hugh welcomed their daughter Faith Hanley on 12 January 2012. Faith then had a brother named Aaron Jay Hanley on 28 February 2014. In September 2022, Michelle posted on her IG, “And they are off. Year 6 and year 4. So proud of my kids, so happy they are turning into little adults head strong and assure of themselves. And now mummy can start the clean-up of the wreckage at home from the last 6 weeks.”
Hugh clarified that she was always there in the lives of their two children, even during the challenging times, despite Michelle’s previous claim that while she was struggling it felt like he was a single parent. But now Hugh says that it’s the other way round as he added: “I think it’s probably flipped – Michelle is doing more than me. She is a super mum. AJ’s personality has improved massively as he’s now enjoying having banter with his mum, too.”
Michelle said that her daughter, Faith, is supportive of how far she’s come and now even pulls her away from the wine aisle in the supermarket. She depicts her daughter as her “biggest cheerleader” and “biggest bodyguard”.
