Who is Stacey Giggs?
Stacey Giggs is the 38-year-old former WAG who married ex-Manchester United play Ryan Giggs in 2007.
The couple have two children together, but split in 2016 amid claims he had cheated on her with a PR executive.
The pair were locked in a year-long £40m divorce battle.
Had Ryan Giggs been accused of cheating on Stacey before?
The couple's 2016 split came five years after it was revealed Ryan had been having a secret affair with his brother Rhodri's wife, Natasha Lever.
The relationship reportedly began in 2003, just a year after he first met Stacey.
The affair was sensationally revealed in 2011 when Natasha spoke out publicly, adding she had become pregnant by the footballer, who then gave her £500 in cash for an abortion.
She said at the time: “I was to blame for what happened but I was at his beck and call.
“It went on for eight years and I learned to live with the lies and the guilt.”
He then had a six-month fling with Welsh Big Brother star Imogen Thomas – and £150,000 on legal fees trying to stop the tryst becoming public.
How much money did Ryan Giggs lose in his divorce?
The pair reached a divorce settlement in 2017.
Although the terms were private, experts predicted Stacey might get half of his vast £48million fortune.
Lawyers said: “Ryan and Stacey Giggs are pleased to say that they have managed to reach a financial settlement in their divorce.
“This concludes the divorce proceedings and they will not be making any further comment.
“The terms of the settlement are confidential, but both wished to express their sincere thanks to their respective legal teams.
“They are pleased to leave this chapter of their lives as firm friends.”
How long have Max and Stacey been dating?
It was announced that the Max George and Stacey Giggs were dating in April 2019.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun about their relationship, Max said: “I’ve always said I’ve wanted kids but never committed to it in my own head but I think Stacey’s the one.
“We would love to add to the family at some point, that would be amazing. Obviously there are no guarantees but I’m sure we both feel the same way.”
And on the prospect of tying the knot, he adds: “She’d have to say yes first, we seem to be getting on all right.”
Max said: “It’s the strongest relationship I’ve ever had and every day gets more exciting.
“We’re really close; we were close from day one. With me moving in with Stacey — because that was her family home — and the kids, you become such a tight unit. We are getting closer every day.
Max has also said his relationship with the kids’ dad Ryan Giggs is amicable.
How did they meet?
Max was introduced to the former Wag at the John Gilbert pub, in Worsley, near Manchester, in 2018 by mutual pals.
They had met once before, backstage at V Festival in 2011, where Max was performing with The Wanted when Stacey was married Ryan and the boyband star was dating Michelle Keegan.
Max now plays stepdad to Stacey’s two kids Libby, 17, and Zach, 13.
