The couple announced in January they were divorcing after six years of marriage with Gary's reluctance to have a baby with Danielle cited as one of the main reasons for the split.

Since their divorce was finalised, Danielle, 37, began dating entertainment lawyer Nate who she met after moving to the same Los Angeles neighbourhood as him.

'Match of the Day' presenter Gary, 55, has reportedly met with his former spouse and her new beau on a few occasions and is very happy for them.

A source told MailOnline: "Danielle and Nate are very happy and planning a future together. Gary and Nate got on very well when they met and Gary couldn't be more pleased for them both."

Danielle and Nate have apparently been discussing taking their relationship to the next level and are planning to move in with each other.

The Welsh beauty made the decision to relocate to LA to pursue an acting career and found love along the way.

Former England and Tottenham Hotspur striker Gary - who has four sons with his first wife Michelle Cockayne - has admitted he found it tough having to go through the break-up from Danielle in such a public way.

He said: "Obviously when you know you are going through something personal that you know is going to be public, it makes it quite difficult, and it becomes a weight on your shoulders."
