She is known for her incredible figure.
And Kirsty Gallacher looked stunning in black lingerie on Saturday, despite recently opening up about the ‘stress’ of becoming a single mother.
The TV star and mother-of-two, 44, who split from Paul Sampson after five years of marriage and a 15-year relationship in 2015, displayed her toned physique in a seamless black bra and matching briefs from Sloggi.
She tucked her brunette tresses back in a neat ponytail and wore a soft make-up look as she candidly smiled in the social media snap.
The sports presenter shares sons Oscar, 13, and Jude, 10, with her rugby ace ex-husband Paul, 43.
Speaking to Closer magazine recently, Kirsty asserted: ‘For me, the hardest thing about the pandemic has been the loneliness. I’ve been on an emotional journey, but I feel I’ve now come out stronger than ever.’
Admitting that she has been ‘struggling quite a lot’ over recent years, Kirsty found that the ‘knock-backs’ have actually been positive learning curves.
Kirsty also confessed that becoming a single mum had a negative impact on her mental health, but lockdown forced her to find ways to ‘cope with being by herself’.
She said: ‘Becoming a single mum sent my stress levels through the roof. Being by myself for the past few months has certainly taught me to be strong.’
In March, Kirsty was forced to quarantine herself away from her two children while she battled coronavirus, but constantly worried about their wellbeing.
As well as citing Gabby Logan and Dermot O’Leary as some of her best friends, the sports presenter credits brother-in-law Russell Brand – who married Kirsty’s sister Laura in 2017 – for always giving her ‘great advice.’
In October, Kirsty also revealed her hatred of fancy dress was a factor in her divorce from her ex-husband who ‘loved’ dressing up.
The television presenter claimed she can’t stand fancy dress and has never been to a themed party because she refuses to go on any ‘gimmicky nights out’.
