Susanna Reid slams marriage as unnecessary and defends ‘illegitimate children’

GMB: Ed Balls tells Susanna Reid to ‘sort yourself out’

Susanna Reid has dismissed marriage as unnecessary and defended “illegitimate children”.

The Good Morning Britain presenter, who is a mother-of-three and has never married, is believed to be currently single with no “ambition” to ever walk down the aisle.

She previously said of being wed: “I’ve never wanted [marriage]. I’ve never fantasised about the big day.

“It was never my ambition to be married… No, no, no, I think the focus should be on the relationship,” she added to The Sun.

She also said on GMB IN 2021 of never getting hitched: “It’s a personal personal choice. It’s a bit of an old-fashioned idea that children are ‘illegitimate’ if you’re not married. Children are legitimate, whether you’re married or not.”

Susanna was in a relationship with fellow journalist and father of her sons, Dominic Cotton, between 1998 to 2014.

Their split was amicable and they remained close pals and made the unconventional move of continuing to live together.

Susanna and Dominic were together for 16 years and had three sons together called Jack, Sam, and Finn.

Susanna previously spoke to the Mirror about how the pair remain on good terms. She said: “I’m still talking to Dom. He is one of my best friends in the world.

“It’s been tough, but we are sorting it out. He is a great dad to the kids. “We all go through different challenges in our life, and this has been a challenging time.

“But it’s lovely to have a good time today. I have friends here, I’ve got Strictly, BBC Breakfast. It’s a good day.”

Four years later, she started dating millionaire and Crystal Palace’s chairman Steve Parish, who she was introduced to by her former GMB co-host Piers Morgan.

In April 2019, they parted ways when the TV star confirmed she was single again. The star hasn’t been linked romantically with anyone since the split and believed to be currently single.
