Ronnie O’Sullivan, 46, is currently heading into the semi-finals at the World Snooker Championship and the good news keeps coming for the star.
Two months ago, reports broke that he and his long-term partner, Holby City star Laila Rouass, 50, had split up after being together for 10 years.
O’Sullivan’s fans were shocked by the news but now the pair seem to have reunited.
Earlier this week it was reported that the two had rekindled their relationship with the snooker star even moving back into their Essex home.
In pictures obtained by the Mirror, Rouass was even seen sporting her engagement ring again.
Ronnie O’Sullivan and Laila Rouass split
Rouass first confirmed the two had split up on Twitter on February 16, writing: “After nearly 10 years of love and memories, Ronnie & I have parted ways. Peace & love to you all Laila X.”
The next day, she added: “The thing about break ups. It doesn’t have to be a sad/hard time. It can be the beginning of new adventures & learnings.
“Self-compassion & manifesting a life without someone you love can still lead you to a place of joy. Thank u for your kind messages X”.
The Footballers’ Wives star also posted the message on her Instagram stories.
It now seems they are back together after the Mirror obtained photos of Rouass sporting her engagement ring again.
A friend of the family told the outlet: “The love is still there. It seems like they are giving things another go.
“Nothing is ever straightforward when it comes to Ronnie but there’s a lot of love there.”
What did Ronnie O’Sullivan’s sister say about the relationship?
The two have often had a rocky relationship in the past, with O’Sullivan’s sister Danielle not holding back her thoughts in 2020.
Speaking to The Sun, she said: “Ronnie has given Mum so much help in the past. But when he asked her for £15,000 last year, he told me she said, ‘I’m not giving you money for that f*****g s**g’.
“She has shown me Laila's number saved on her phone under ‘The revolving f***y’ and has apparently told Ronnie, ‘She’s just a prostitute, she’ll sleep with anyone’.
“She told me he goes for the same birds and Laila is the one who will catch him out. But Ronnie is so in love with Laila. He’s bought her a diamond ring, though he says they’re not engaged.
“They split up last year then got back together.”
How long have Ronnie O’Sullivan fiancée Laila Rouass been engaged?
The couple first started dating in 2012 and got engaged just one year later. They first met through O’Sullivan’s father during a house viewing.
Rouass explained: “It happened by accident. I was shown around Ronnie’s house by his father, who told his son about meeting me.
“Ronnie called the estate agent, a friend of mine, and asked me out via her.
“When she said he was a snooker player, I said, ‘Yeah, but what does he do for a living?’ I’d never heard of him because sport doesn’t interest me at all, although Ronnie’s won me over to snooker.”
