Frankie Bridge’s Instagram: Mum, Model And Mental Health

Former member of The Saturdays, yummy mummy and advocate of mental health awareness… we’ve raked through the best bits of Frankie Bridge’s Instagram.

Who could forget that Frankie‘s career kicked off as a member of S Club 8 – the band we all wanted to be part of.

In 2007, she proceeded to audition for The Saturdays, was signed by a principal record label and advanced to achieve nineteen UK Top 20 Singles and six UK Top Ten Albums. However, aside from her stellar singing career, Frankie developed into a huge style icon – her bob was iconic – took part in Strictly Come Dancing and collaborated with several fashion outlets.

Not only that, Frankie has been utilising her social media platforms to open up about the mental health problems she has confronted in her life and shared her story to help others realise that they are not alone.

We are looking inside her Instagram to find her highlights on being a mother, a model and a mental health advocate.

Frankie’s Husband And Children

Happily married, Frankie has been wed to husband Wayne Bridge for the past three years.

Believe it or not, James Corden played cupid with the pair, swapping their numbers. Before long, the two texted and tied the knot in a secret ceremony in 2017.

With a nine-year age gap between the two, the pair work perfectly and in 2013, the happy couple welcomed their first child Parker. Not long after, in 2015, the two welcomed Carter while Wayne also had son Jaydon from a previous relationship.

Her Battle With Mental Health

Earlier this year, Frankie opened up and spoke out about her battle with mental health.

She explained:

“I’d reached a point where I couldn’t cope with everyday life,

“I was constantly crying and telling my partner [footballer Wayne Bridge] that I didn’t really want to be here anymore.”

After years of struggling, the singer decided that the best option for her was to enter a specialist mental health hospital and later revealed how she felt a huge sense of relief at handing her life over to someone else.

Having chatted openly about her struggle with depression and suicidal thoughts, Frankie penned a book about her experience called: “Open: Why Asking for Help Can Save Your Life”.

Frankie also denied the book was a self-help book, instead declaring that its intention is to help other realise that they are not alone.
