Stuart Broad, 37, has opened up about the make or break trip that determined he and Mollie King, 36, should stay together.
The couple initially met back in 2012 through mutual friends and have since got engaged, before becoming first-time parents last year.
Despite the pair now being settled, their relationship hasn’t always been plain sailing, as the cricketer spills in his new book.
In 2018, the couple split due to their busy schedules causing a distance just five months into their romance.
However, ahead of his tour in New Zealand, Stuart said the pair had reunited and planned a trip to determine whether they could be together.

In his book Broadly Speaking, Stuart wrote: “It felt like we needed to have a couple of nights and some time together to make a call on whether we could make things work, so two days after I got back from New Zealand, despite being worried about the jet lag, we were on the train to Paris.
“We walked around the streets, sat and drank coffee, everything we could do in London. But somewhere else.”
The couple were officially back together in 2019 and two years later, he popped the question to the former member of The Saturdays.
Announcing the news at the time, she shared a picture of the pair kissing during a countryside walk alongside the caption: “A thousand times yes!
“I still can’t believe it, the most magical start to the new year! I can’t wait to spend all my years with you.”

In November 2022, they welcomed their daughter Annabella into the world and have since been giving fans an insight into their family life.
Another change in Stuart’s life happened back in July, when he retired from cricket following the final Ashes Test.
Speaking to The Guardian, he said he wanted to finish playing the sport “at the very top” of his game.
He added: “Part of me wanted to know that I could still do it. I’ve had a love affair with the Ashes my whole life and the thought of being able to bowl my last ball against Australia is something that fills me with joy. So that’s come to fruition.
“And it’s been the most enjoyable series, the most entertaining series, the most edge-of-the-seat series that I can remember.
“I just feel in a fantastic place as a player, as a person, and just feel very happy and content at the moment.”
Mollie rose to fame in The Saturdays alongside Rochelle Humes, Frankie Bridge, Una Healy and Vanessa White.
Since 2018, she has been a presenter on BBC Radio 1.
