Michael Clarke receives gift from daughter Kelsey Lee for Valentine’s Day after split from wife Kyly

‘Thank you princess’: Michael Clarke receives a gift from daughter Kelsey Lee, four, for Valentine’s Day… amid shock split from wife Kyly after seven years of marriage

He’s the former Australian cricket captain who announced his split from his wife Kyly on Wednesday after quietly separating five months ago.

And on Friday, Michael Clarke celebrated Valentine’s Day without Kyly, 38, choosing to herald the occasion with his daughter Kelsey Lee, four.

The 38-year-old sports star shared a photo to Instagram Stories, showing his daughter hugging a grey bear that she gifted to him.

Michael reportedly moved out of their $12million marital home in Vaucluse, Sydney in September last year and is now believed to be living in his $8million investment property in Bondi Beach.

But he still trains at the same Rose Bay gym as Kyly and picks up his daughter to take her to preschool. 

The high school sweethearts, whose divorce is estimated to be worth $40million, said the ‘amicable’ decision was ‘the best course’ for their daughter.
