Heart­break for Cassie Stokes as she splits from part­ner

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - COMMENT - By Ni­amh Walsh

XPOSÉ pre­sen­ter Cassie Stokes has split with her longterm girl­friend, the Ir­ish Mail on Sun­day can re­veal.

Cassie had been dat­ing Cana­dian Kath­leen Gau­vin for more than four years, and Kath­leen even moved to Ire­land two years ago.

But sources have told the MoS that the cou­ple de­cided some months ago to go their sep­a­rate ways.

In­deed, Kath­leen, who was al­ways a reg­u­lar on Cassie’s In­sta­gram feed, has not ap­peared in any pic­tures since last Au­gust.

The split is un­der­stood to be a knock to both women as they were plan­ning for a fu­ture to­gether, in­clud­ing the prospect of mar­riage and chil­dren.

‘Cassie is very upset,’ said a source. ‘And it’s tough for Kath­leen also, she has moved to Ire­land to be with Cassie but some­times things don’t al­ways work out.’

Dun­drum na­tive Cassie had pre­vi­ously spo­ken of her in­ten­tions to marry Kath­leen and have a fam­ily to­gether.

In a re­cent in­ter­view she even re­vealed that they had de­cided who would pop the ques­tion.

‘It’s go­ing to be me be­cause I feel like Kath­leen is al­ways wait­ing for me be­cause I take so long to get ready,’ she said. ‘This will be one thing that she won’t have to wait for me to do when we are ready to do it. It’s def­i­nitely on the cards. I’d be lucky if we got mar­ried one day and I hope we will.’

She also added that chil­dren were part of their grand plan.

‘Get mar­ried, have a fam­ily... it’s def­i­nitely on the cards. We’re just lucky that it can’t hap­pen ac­ci­den­tally, we can plan it and wait for the right time. When we’re com­fort­able and we’ve en­joyed go­ing to New York enough times – be­cause I don’t think we’ll be go­ing to New York as of­ten when we have the kids!

‘I would love to have one if I can, if I’m lucky enough. And Kath­leen would love to as well. And I think we would adopt as well. The ideal is three kids and adopt one. But, like I said, we’re lucky we can choose the time for this to hap­pen – you can’t ac­ci­den­tally adopt a kid.’

Cassie de­clined to com­ment on the split when con­tacted by the MoS this week.
