The Saturdays star, 38, has made it her mission to no longer be “sad about her past”, but has revealed that her bitter break-up with Ben, 35, left her feeling “lonely”, reports Daily Mail.
And it seems as though lockdown has only heightened that sense of loneliness as Una spent her days at home with the pair’s kids Aoife, eight, and five-year-old son Tadhg.
The couple split in 2018 after six years of marriage after Ben was unfaithful to her.
The reports of his cheating were too much for their relationship, however, and just one week after the story broke, Una announced she’d split from Ben – days before the family were due to move to the US for his career.
Speaking on the Sippin’ The Tea podcast – which premiers on Tuesday at 5pm – Una revealed what life after Ben is like during a candid chat with hosts Ariane Andrew and Matthew Dillon.
Opening up about lockdown life, Una confessed: “I was quite lonely over there [in England] with my two kids. Just not having adult company. It was just the three of us.
“I’m delighted to be back here in my home. I couldn’t think of anywhere better to be right now.”
As the conversation shifted onto her past, Una admitted that she’s had enough experiences to write about when it comes to new music.
Speaking of her ill-fated marriage to Ben, the single mum said: “The great thing about life experience, I’ve got so much to write about.
“But I wanna be a bit more positive and excited about my future, rather than being sad about my past.
“You have to go right down to come right back up. And there’s only one way you can go when you’re at right rock bottom and that’s up.”
She added: “And I was at rock bottom for a while, and I’ve come up. I’m on the way up now.
“It’s time. It’s hard and it’s horrible, but it just takes a bit of time really – that’s what I’d say to anyone.
“I have two children from the relationship, which is the positive which came out of that relationship.”
Since the pair’s divorce, Una went on to find love with Irish hurler David Breen, going Instagram official with him in Christmas 2018, but the pair split in March this year after realising they want different things.
Meanwhile Ben left the world stunned after he married New Yorker Jackie Belanoff after meeting on Tinder.
He moved on quickly after their divorce as he wed Jackie just two weeks after they started dating.
Jackie recently gave birth to their first child together, making Ben a father of three.
