In a recent interview with HELLO! Said the Olympian that her daughter loved spending rare times with her and Harry, gushing, "She's getting the best of both worlds!"

The award-winning swimmer attributed a solid routine to the coronavirus lockdown, with the little girl spending three days in each house.

Rebecca said: & # 39; She goes to Harry for three days, she comes to me for three days. We pulled ourselves together very well and found our routine. You get the best of both worlds! & # 39;

The media personality said she felt "bad" at the beginning of the lockdown because Summer struggled to leave school as an only child but has since grown used to "hanging out with mom and dad".

The athlete explained: “Usually we are in such a rush, we pick her up from school, take her to tennis or swimming, for the first time she had a really good time with us.

“We don't go anywhere, we just sit and chat and laugh or dance and cuddle. We used to do some of this on the weekend, but this is a good time. & # 39;

It was recently claimed that she invited Harry to temporarily move into the house she shares with Andrew so he can be closer to her daughter.

A source told The Sun: “Your arrangement is very amicable and they are doing what is best for the summer.

“They still get on very well despite their separation. So why not And Harry's friend Michael is also close to the others.

"They all really enjoy each other's company and which was a breeze with their shared interest in swimming."

Harry came out bisexual in June of that year, told BBC News that he had a relationship with another man in 2019 and said he didn't feel like he could really say he was bisexual until it happened.

He said, “I didn't feel like I could honestly say I was bisexual until I was in a relationship with a man.

“I presented myself as bisexual there and went out on a few dates with women and men. I was then in a relationship with another man and that was last year. & # 39;

Harry did not reveal the man's identity or say whether they were still in a relationship.

Harry praised his former partner for her support when he revealed his bisexuality.

He said, “I only told Becky last year. I only told all of my friends and family last year, but everyone, Beckys in particular, has responded really well.

& # 39; It was like 'okay', nobody really cared, I felt like. I really don't care what other people think of me. To me, love is love, you should be with someone who makes you happy. & # 39;

Talking about their marriage, he said, “I absolutely loved my marriage to Becky. It was wonderful. I can't honestly say we had a lot of arguments. And I think that proves why we're good friends and why we have such a good relationship now and raise our daughter Summer together. & # 39;

The star also spoke about the lack of role models for bisexual people growing up, saying, “I always knew I was attracted to both sexes. During my teenage years, I felt like I was in a society that could only be identified as gay or gay.

“I didn't feel that there are many role models for bisexual people.

“Girls used to be interested and that's why I got involved in these relationships, but maybe it was a little more open in society, maybe it would have been different. I think it's a lack of education. & # 39;

Harry also hit back on prejudice against bisexuality, saying he was accused of "using bisexuality as a gateway or a stepping stone to becoming gay".

He said, “People almost don't believe that there are bisexual men and women. Since I'm bisexual, I'm attracted to both of them. I came across "bisexual people are greedy". As if you have to choose men or women. & # 39;

Harry first discussed his bisexuality during a question-and-answer session on his Instagram Stories in June when a fan asked what his sexuality was – he said he had known it since he was 13.

He replied, “This is a question that I have avoided every day of my life so far, mainly because I don't like labels even though I don't know a solution to avoid them. But if I had to answer I would #ahh people I've always been bisexual. & # 39;

Harry told fans that he had known about his sexuality since he was 13, but had never felt the need to address her publicly before after meeting Rebecca at the age of 17.

Candid: The personal trainer took to Instagram in June to show he felt ready to publicly address his sexuality after previously avoiding the "every day of his life" question.

The father of one child told fans that bisexuality was not a factor in the breakdown of his marriage to the former Olympic swimming champion.

Explaining why he chose Sunday to come out, Harry wrote, “Today is #Fathers Day #Domontay and the final week of Health Awareness. I couldn't miss an opportunity to have gold like this. & # 39;

Harry shared a collage of pictures of himself and the daughter he shares with Rebecca, Summer, five, along with a long caption about Father's Day.

"Happy Father's Day to all of the fathers out there who have a duty to inspire, teach, care, and love their children as all children deserve to be loved."

“I can burst with excitement at times about how proud I am to be Summers' father, and I will cherish every single moment with this child until my last breath.

Helping hand: A man's father also revealed that his friends and family were previously aware of his sexuality, which he wants to share with his Instagram followers in hopes of helping

“For all of the fathers who made mistakes along the way (because we all made mistakes), grow beyond them, fix them and keep trying to be that inspiration, that role model, and that superhero.

Harry ended the post by giving other bisexual fathers a shout, writing:

“Never stop creating ourselves, we all deserve happier times. In honor of #pride Special, I'm calling all the bisexual dads out there, I see you, I hear you, I feel you. & # 39;

After Harry shared the news with his fans, he answered any other questions his followers had about his sexuality.

One person asked if he and Rebecca broke up because of this and said, “This is a question that I anticipated and I am definitely happy to share the truth. @ Beckadlington and I NEVER divorced because of my sexuality.

& # 39; Becky is an absolutely amazing supportive friend and has been with us from the start and always will be.

"Also, I will NEVER share the details of why I and Becky went their separate ways. I hope you can respect that."

Harry admitted that he had been "satisfied" with his sexuality for years, but said that it can feel "confusing" at first before adding that he was there for anyone who was having problems.

He added, “When I was married to Becky, I didn't have to share my sexuality publicly, but I hope my journey can inspire many others to be true to themselves. I am always there for anyone who wants to reach out. & # 39;

The father of one child also revealed that his friends and family were previously aware of his sexuality, which he plans to share with his Instagram followers in hopes of helping.

"I think sometimes you can rethink it because it's so personal and emotional … but my advice is to embrace it, share it and be your real self. Start a conversation. It's that simple. & # 39;

Rebecca recently shed light on Summer's upbringing with ex Harry after isolating herself with boyfriend Andrew Parsons and Harry's boyfriend Michael Gunning.

In an interview with HELLO! Said the Olympian that her daughter and her ex-husband "loved" spending rare time with both of them and enthused: "She's getting the best of both worlds!"

It was recently claimed that she invited Harry to temporarily move into the house she shares with Andrew so he can be closer to her daughter.

They split in 2016 after 18 months of marriage, and Rebecca announced that she was dating the property manager in 2018.

Sources told The Sun that Harry also brought his close friend, competitive swimmer Michael, 26, to move into the house, and although it seems strange from the outside, they got along well.
