‘Sometimes I will text Michael and say, “Oh God, Stella [their daughter] has just asked for a double piercing. Firstly, where’s that going to be, and secondly what do we do about this?”

‘So it’s good that we can have that relationship that’s very open and discuss these issues together.’   

While Lindy said that she and Michael aren’t in a ‘Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin situation just yet’, they are well on their way to building a strong friendship. 

Surprisingly, Lindy revealed that her new husband, British property developer Adam, enjoys a close friendship with Michael.
