Michael Clarke takes to Instagram hours after estranged wife Kyly’s new romance with James Courtney revealed

The Australian cricket legend took to Instagram just hours after his estranged wife’s new romance was made public.

Michael Clarke has issued a classy response just hours after it was revealed his estranged wife Kyly was dating again.

The Australian cricket legend took to Instagram to share an adorable picture of himself with his four-year-old daughter Kelsey, who he shares with Kyly.

His post appeared just hours after Kyly’s romance with supercar driver James Courtney was made public in several news reports — her first known relationship since the Clarke’s split in February.

“Date night,” Michael wrote alongside the picture of him embracing his daughter.

Kyly has been recently seen kissing her new boyfriend, rekindling a romance from 20 years ago.

“Kyly loves motorsports, it is something she has been passionate about since childhood,” a source told the Daily Telegraph.

“They just clicked when they reconnected and everything is going well.

“It is like a fairytale because they were together all those years ago so it has come full circle.”

Kyly added fuel to rumours of a romance after posting a video track-side to her Instagram Story.

“And just like that, the weekend begins” she said, referring to the Bathurst 1000, which her new flame is racing in as part of the Tickford Boost Mobile team.

The professional driver separated from his wife, Carys, three years ago. They share two children.

The former Australian cricket captain is dating high-profile fashion designer Pip Edwards — the co-founder of P.E Nation — who has a 13-year-old son with former partner Dan Single.

The pair have been romantically linked since the Clarkes confirmed their divorce after seven years of marriage.

In April, Kyly told how the couple still saw each other regularly.

“I mean it’s weird because we basically see each other every day anyway so I don’t even know it feels any different,” she told KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O.

“Kelsey Lee is our priority and anything that is in her best interests is paramount.
