Michael and estranged wife Kyly Clarke enjoyed a romantic yacht date on Valentine’s Day last year

They announced their split on Wednesday after quietly separating five months ago.

And as Michael and Kyly Clarke prepare for a $40 million divorce, photographs of the pair in happier times have resurfaced. 

On Valentine’s Day last year, the couple packed on the PDA as they enjoyed a romantic day on a yacht together, with Michael even gifting the brunette beauty a red rose.

In the pictures, the pair look smitten as they kiss and hold hands after a day on Sydney Harbour. 

Former model Kyly, 38, couldn’t wipe the smile off her face as she carried her single red rose. 

She looked chic during the outing in a white T-shirt and a denim skirt, and carried a Louis Vuitton handbag.

Sadly, the pair announced their separation on Wednesday after seven years of marriage. 

They split five months ago, but kept it under wraps. 

In a joint statement, Kyly and Michael said it was ‘amicable’ decision and ‘the best course’ for their four-year-old daughter, Kelsey Lee.

The news came as a surprise to many, as Kyly had told Daily Mail Australia in January 2019: ‘We’re not, never were and never will be splitting.’ 

Just eight months later, Michael reportedly moved out of their $12million marital home in Vaucluse, Sydney. He is now living at his apartment in Bondi Beach.

The Clarkes, both 38, have already agreed terms on their divorce, as well as arrangements to co-parent their daughter.

‘After living apart for some time, we have made the difficult decision to ­separate as a couple amicably,’ the statement issued to The Australian’s Media Diary read.

‘With the greatest of respect for each other, we’ve come to the ­mutual conclusion that this is the best course for us to take while committed to the co-parenting of our daughter.’

Defiant: The news came as a surprise to many, as Kyly had told Daily Mail Australia in January 2019: 'We're not, never were and never will be splitting'

Meanwhile on Friday, Kyly broke her silence on the split and told Daily Mail Australia outside a gym in Sydney’s Bondi that she’s doing fine following the separation. 

When asked how she was coping, Kyly said: ‘Of course I am [okay]!’ 

Kyly had just finished her morning workout when she spoke to Daily Mail Australia and was not wearing her wedding ring.

She also said that the pair’s four-year-old daughter, Kelsey Lee, ‘is doing amazing’.

But when asked if she and Michael, also 38, would be attending his personal assistant Sasha Armstrong’s upcoming wedding, Kyly shrugged before saying she ‘wanted privacy’.

‘We said everything we wanted to say in our statement,’ she added firmly. 

Sasha had made headlines in November 2018 when she was photographed in a bikini while sailing on a yacht with her employer.

It was reported by Woman’s Day at the time that Kyly had been ‘upset’ by the photos.

But it turned out to just be a work trip and nothing more, as Sasha is set to marry her fiancé, Tyler Robinson, in six weeks’ time.
