‘It’s very mixed emotions for her, it’s difficult because she’s spoken quite openly about her regret, she’s blamed Strictly quite a lot but, unfortunately, you can’t turn the clock back.’
‘He wanted his sons to walk in with him but it was a very small affair. She only knew because the boys were there.’
The insider added Louise wasn’t ‘given a lot of time to prepare’ because ‘Jamie wanted to be married before the baby was born’.

The former footballer admitted they still ensure they’re ‘pulling the right way’ when it comes to looking after their sons Charley and Beau.
Speaking to HELLO!, Jamie said: ‘I’m very fortunate I’ve got two great boys. When you co-parent, it’s something you have to do together and make sure you’re both pulling the right way.’
He added: ‘Louise does a great job with the boys. We do the best we can and try to be tough but fair.’
The footballer and Frida, 37, have maintained a low-profile since they started dating after having gone public with their romance in August 2020.
A source told The Sun of their baby news: ‘Jamie and Frida were thrilled to learn they are expecting a boy. They’ve told their children and families.
‘Everyone just wants the little lad to arrive now. And just in time for Christmas… it couldn’t be more perfect.’
Following their wedding ceremony at Chelsea Registry Office, the newlyweds held a reception at Scott’s restaurant in Mayfair where they were joined by the likes of Frida’s new in-laws Harry and Sandra Redknapp, as well as Jamie’s cousin Frank Lampard and his wife Christine.
The wedding ceremony marks the second wedding for both of the pair, as Frida was previously married to hedge fund manager Jonathan Lourie.
