Wayne Lineker’s model daughter, three sons and their fears over his partying
Wayne Lineker is known for being an Ibiza playboy – but he’s also a doting father to his four kids.
It’s the Celebs Go Dating star’s offspring who convinced him that he needs to find himself a new girlfriend as they want him to stop parting so much.
“I have four children, three different mothers. Been married twice, divorced twice. Been engaged twice and broke up twice,” explained Wayne.
“Well my family decided for my own sanity and health that I need a girlfriend. By that they meant, ‘Dad you’ve got to stop partying that hard’.”
Wayne confessed he has never dated someone over 30 – and his last partner was not much older than his daughter.
As well as the stunning Tia, Wayne is dad to three sons, Duane, Sean and Freddie.
Wayne’s eldest is 35-year-old Duane, who has followed his dad into the Ibiza patry industry.
Having first worked running the Tenerife branch of the famous Linekers Bar chain, Duane now runs the popular Ocean Beach venue in Ibiza with his partner Megan.
The stunning influencer is Wayne’s only daughter, but he also has three sons from previous relationships.
His eldest son, Duane, co-founded the Ocean Beach club with his businessman dad, and two of Wayne’s younger sons also work in his venues.
Wayne also has two grandchildren, as Duane is dad to young daughters Myla and Aria.
His second eldest son Sean worked with his dad in the Puerto Banus branch of Linekers before heading to Greece.
Sean is also often seen helping his dad and brother out at Ocean Beach Ibiza.
While Wayne’s daughter is almost as famous as he is and nearly has the same amount of Instagram followers.
Tia has launched a successful career as a model, with nearly 500,000 followers on Insta, making her dad extremely proud.
The 22-year-old has modelled a swimwear range for PrettyLittleThing, launched a luxury athleisure line known as Sport Luxe and a brand of unisex classic fedora hats named Palms Halt.
Tia regularly uploads sizzling snaps on social media and left fans stunned with her wash-board abs and killer curves.
The influencer has wowed fans with her incredible physique and drop-dead gorgeous looks.
This week she took to Instagram to share a racy snap of herself in black lingerie which sent fans wild.
Last but not least is Wayne’s youngest, Freddie, who seems like a chip off the old block.
The teenager looks set for a big future in Ibiza, as his dad uploaded a snap of the pair at Ocean Beach with the caption: ” @freddie_lineker you will be smiling when I die and this is all yours.”
While only 15, Freddie has been seen meeting some of his dad’s famous friends.
He was photographed with Love Island’s Molly Mae Hague and Tommy Fury last summer.
Freddie doesn’t live in Ibiza but regularly flies out to see his old man in the party capital of the world.
Wayne was cheered on by Freddie as he made his debut on Celebs Go Dating on Monday night.
As the first episode went live, Wayne gathered his nearest and dearest on the sofa so they could watch the start of his journey.
As voiceover Rob Beckett introduced the 58-year-old to viewers, footage was shown of Wayne’s controversial dating video that made headlines last year when he pushed several swimsuit-clad ladies into a swimming pool
The moment led to huge cheers from Wayne’s family, with the man himself shouting ‘Come on Wayno!’
Wayne’s previous relationship was with Danielle Sandhu, who is only six years older than his daughter.
After four years together they split in 2018 – with Wayne saying he ended things when Danielle got a job.
“My ex Danielle, for the first years of our relationship she never had a job, she was with me 24/7,” he said last week.
“But she really got into her career which meant she wasn’t at the beach club and it must have been difficult for her.
“I ended our relationship because we couldn’t spend the time we used to spend together.”
While Danielle said their relationship ended due to “circumstances out of their control”.
Announcing their split on Instagram, Danielle wrote: “There’s no easy way to say this but unfortunately me and Wayne have decided to end our relationship and wanted it to come from us first.
“We have had the most amazing, loving and meaningful relationship and has been the best 4 years, but It has come to a point in both of lives where this is the best option for us and have come to this mutual decision due to circumstances out of our control.”
Now Wayne has turned to Celebs Go Dating to get some professional help with the ladies.
And it looks like he is in need of some new chat up lines if the first mixer is anything to go by.
Wayne described how he took a vegan girl out last year on “the worst date ever”, as he discovered she was a vegan after taking her to a massive carvery.
While Wayne got his main course of chicken, beef and lamb, his date decided to have a salad for a starter and another as a main.
He then cheekily asked: “What are you going to have for dessert, a salad?”
Safe to say that relationship didn’t go anywhere, hence why Wayne is still single and looking for love.
During his time in the Celebs Go Dating mansion, Wayne grew close to Geordie Shore star Chloe Ferry.
There has been some speculation something may have gone on between them while holed up in a luxury mansion and admitted it’s a shame they can’t be a couple.
“Shame I’m not allowed to date the celebs,” he captioned a picture of them together.
Chloe called him “My boy” in the comments section, while dating agent Anna Williamson has addressed the clear on-screen chemistry between the pair.
“I think Wayne and Chloe are very friendly,” Anna said.
“I mean, Wayne, Wayne was extremely popular and is extremely popular amongst all of our celebs and Chloe is as well. We’ve got a lot of time for Wayne.
“Wayne and Chloe have a great chemistry as friends. Yeah, they’re very funny. They bounce off each other. They’re both very cheeky and naughty.”
Wayne is hoping he will come out of the show with a new girlfriend and he’s going on the charm offensive to woo the ladies.
“I’m a very romantic guy. I’d like to do things the right way and treat my girl like a queen,” said the Ibiza legend.
“My ideal date is to go to a beautiful restaurant. Have some nice food, nice wine, then go home and see what happens.
“I’m ready for a relationship. I’m two years single now and if I don’t get a girlfriend soon then it could be the end for me.”
Wayne has already had one set back as ring girl Carla suggesting he was too old for her, but could he turn things around?
