Liv Tyler and her fiancé Dave Gardner have split after seven years and two children, according to a new report. 

Insiders claim the actress, 44, and David Beckham’s football agent pal, 45, went their separate ways back in March after ‘growing apart’ and living separate lives.

The couple share two children, Sailor Gene, six, and Lula Rose, five. Liv is also mother to son Milo, 16, from her marriage to ex-husband Royston Langdon, while Dave shares a son Grey, 14, with his ex-wife Davinia Taylor.

It was first rumoured that Liv and Dave’s relationship had hit a rocky patch after the Lord Of The Rings star flew to Los Angeles for eight weeks with their two children in tow, leaving her football agent fiance behind at their Cotswolds home last October.

A source told The Sun: ‘Dave and Liv spent all of the first lockdown together and are a great team as parents but unfortunately, they’ve grown apart and increasingly they’ve been living separate lives.

‘Both wanted to focus on their careers — her acting and producing, and Dave running his business and working on David’s Inter Miami football project.’

‘They officially parted ways back in March but they’ve kept it quiet so as to minimise the fuss, and ensure their kids were OK.’

The source added that they have now come out the other side of their troubles and are good friends, even holidaying together this summer. 

On Wednesday, Liv ignored mounting speculation surrounding her marriage as she shared a picture of her eldest son Milo feeding a horse.

She cryptically captioned the image: ‘Connection’.

Alongside the clip, the sports agent also shared some sweet family pictures with their kids Sailor and Lula as he sweetly wrote: ‘Happy Happy Happy Birthday to our beautiful Momma xxx.’  

In the fun video shared on Dave’s Instagram, the Armageddon star beamed to the camera as she sported a bright blue and pink floral long-sleeved swimsuit and wet, dishevelled hair.  

She then proceeded to zip down the huge water slide with her hands in the air and fell into the sea below.

The star was then followed by one of her children on the slide, with Liv meeting them at the bottom.

Liv candidly spoke about their relationship with Red magazine back in 2017, insisting it was the desire to extend their families that helped strengthen their bond.

‘We both wanted to have a family and children and a partnership and love,’ she explained.

‘Our jobs are high stress and high energy and constantly moving, so it’s really just the family part we’re on the same page about, which is amazing because I know that’s often quite tricky for couples.’

The actress also credited Dave for his hands-on approach to parenthood and willingness to step in as Liv’s hugely successful career continued uninterrupted following her relocation to the United Kingdom.

She recalled: ‘After I moved to England, I reconnected with an agent and within about a week, she said, ‘I’ve got this job for you,’ And it was starting the following week.

‘It meant commuting to Leeds for a few days at a time, but it was so good for me and David was just like, ‘I’ve got this’. He was home every night for dinner and bedtime, and holding down the fort.

‘He drops the boys at school every single morning, while I’m standing there at the door in my pyjamas, covered in food, with both babies in my arms.’ 

The inevitable demands that come with parenting a family of four growing children were brought to the fore during family holidays she explained – but she wouldn’t have it any other way.

‘It’s so tricky going away on vacation with so many,’ she said. ‘We’re not the kind of parents that are gonna be like, ‘You stay here and go to bed, we’re going out.’ We always want to do everything together.

‘But then going out to dinner with, like, 10 people… The babies need to eat immediately and then they’re completely restless throwing food all over the place. And the minute the boys finish, they’re like, ‘We’re off now’. You’re left trying to enjoy a glass of wine and your meal with food flying everywhere.’ 

The pair had been engaged since September 2015, when Dave got down on one knee and popped the question.

She later admitted it hadn’t been the most glamorous of moments, telling FABLife she was pregnant at the time and had just stepped out of the shower. 

‘It was very sweet I was very surprised. I had no idea and I didn’t look very attractive,’ she said.

‘I was pregnant and I was like crying and had just come out of the shower and I was like unpacking. It wasn’t a very glamorous moment.’
