Ainsley Earhardt is headed for the divorce court for a second time, DailyMail.com can reveal.
The Fox & Friends host’s husband filed papers on Wednesday to end their six-year marriage just hours after DailyMail.com revealed that the pair had split.
And former college quarterback Will Proctor steadfastly denied that he had cheated on the blonde morning anchor with one of her best friends.
‘There is not one ounce of truth to the allegation that I had an affair,’ Proctor said in a statement to DailyMail.com
‘I am devastated about this situation and did not envision this for the future of our family,’ he added.
‘I remain focused on and committed to being the best dad, and maintaining a friendship with my wife even though she has decided to move on,’ Proctor, 34, said. The couple have one daughter, Hayden, who turns three next month.
‘This morning I filed an action for divorce,’ he said. ‘This is a very personal matter, and for the sake of our young daughter, I ask that the media respect the privacy of our family.’
Friends said that Proctor and Earhardt, 42, had even talked about working towards a reconciliation – but now any hope that the couple could get back together has been blown out the window.
‘Her social life now revolves around her colleagues at Fox News,’ one source told DailyMail.com.
Proctor, who was starting quarterback for Clemson and is now a private credit investment advisor at the New York financial firm Neuberger Berman, is understood to be particularly upset that his wife uses their daughter to promote her image.
She regularly posts pictures of Hayden on her social media accounts and the little girl has even featured on Fox & Friends.
DailyMail.com revealed late Tuesday that Earhardt, who stars alongside Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on President Trump’s favorite cable news show, had split from her eight-years-younger husband.
Friends of hers claimed the couple had failed to work through an affair he had had several years ago with a woman Earhardt had regarded as one of her best friends.
‘After much prayer and careful consideration, Will and I have separated,’ she said in a statement.
‘I am grateful to Fox for their support and allowing me to spend all day, every day after the morning show with my child.
‘I am fully committed to parenting and doing what is always best for my darling little girl and would appreciate privacy and prayers during this difficult time.’
Earhardt co-hosted the show on Wednesday without making any mention of her marriage.
The couple are now living in separate apartments just 12 blocks from each other on New York’s Upper East Side.
Sources close to Earhardt say the couple split after trying for years to piece their marriage back together following her husband’s alleged affair.
‘It was all the more devastating for Ainsley that he cheated with someone who she considered one of her closest friends,’ Earhardt’s friend said.
‘Any marriage break-up is difficult but this made it extra heartwrenching for her.
‘She has evidence that proves the affair,’ the source added, although she would not go into what that evidence is.
The couple met on a blind date and married in Proctor’s home town of Winter Park, Florida, in 2012, three years after Earhardt divorced her high school sweetheart Kevin McKinney, whom she had married in 2005 in San Antonio, Texas.
