Who is Rebecca Adlington’s ex-husband Harry Needs? – The Sun | The Sun

REBECCA Adlington's former husband Harry Needs came out as bisexual in an Instagram post four years after the two decided to split in 2016.

Despite the pair no longer being together, they have managed to keep a civil relationship.

Who is Harry Needs?

Harry Needs was born in London, England, where he lived and trained as a competitive swimmer during his educational years.

He studied physical education, art, design technology and interactive computer science while swimming at an international level.

Upon finishing his competitive swimming career, Harry married four-time Olympic medallist, Rebecca Adlington and relocated to Manchester.

On June 21, 2020, Needs revealed he's bisexual. Speaking on a Q&A on his Instagram, he told his fans: "This is a question I've avoided every day of my life so far, mainly because I strongly dislike labels despite not knowing a solution to avoid them.

"But if I had to answer I would people that I've always been bisexual #ahh."

After his marriage to Adlington, Needs embarked on a new career as a Personal Trainer, while also participating in a part-time BA (Hons) Graphic Design Degree.

When did Harry and Rebecca Adlington get married and do they have any children?

The pair got married on August 31, 2014.

They split up in 2016 after 18 months of marriage but have remained on amicable terms since.

At the time Rebecca blamed their age difference (he is three years younger than her), and that he ‘idolised’ her for her high status in the professional swimming world.

The pair had a daughter, Summer, who was born in June 2015.

Speaking on Summer's birth, Adlington said: "It was the most weird and incredible experience, when the midwife put Summer on my chest for the first time, it was surreal.

"The relief that came over me was incredible."

Although they have split, Adlington and Needs continue to co-parent their daughter Summer together.
