Jordan's decision wrecked their marriage
Katie, who’s expected to announce her split from hubby Alex any day, had two unsuccessful bids to get pregnant via the in vitro procedure.
When she decided she’d had enough, it sparked huge arguments between the pair at Christmas.
‘When it eventually came out he was destroyed. There was a row to end all rows,’ says a source.
‘Alex so desperately wanted to become a dad and believed they were still working on this.
‘But few people understand how gruelling IVF is.
‘Katie underwent hell twice to try and have Alex‘s baby.
‘She simply couldn’t do it for a third time, but didn’t have the heart to tell him straight away.’
Alex, 35 and Katie, 32, married in February last year and announced they were trying for a baby in the same month.
‘There were many factors to this circus of a marriage falling apart,’ the source tells The Sun.
‘As it stands they are living in separate parts of their house.’
