According to The Sun, Katie, 32, had been through two gruelling IVF procedures is an attempt to conceive and could not face a third, leading to huge rows with Alex, 35.
A friend of the couple told the paper: “There were so many factors to this circus of a marriage falling apart.
“Alex desperately wanted to become a dad and believed they were still working on this. But few people understand how gruelling IVF is. Katie underwent hell twice to try and have Alex’s baby.
“She couldn’t do it for a third time, but didn’t have the heart to tell him straight away.”
Her decision led to blazing rows over Christmas, leaving the relationship in tatters and the couple headed for the divorce court.
Katie wrote candidly about her failed IVF in her autobiography You Only Live Once, saying: “I convinced myself I was having twins. Then I started experiencing stomach cramps and bleeding.
“Alex and I had been so hopeful, so excited, and now all our dreams were dashed.”

She is thought to be in talks with her representatives regarding the release of a statement about her marriage.
