Kyle Walker brands himself an Idiot
Kyle told The Sun: “What I’ve done is horrible and I take full responsibility.
“I made idiot choices and idiot decisions. I can’t begin to think or imagine what Annie is going through. I’ve tried to ask her but there’s pain and hurt.
“The man that’s meant to love, care and be there for her, did this.
“There have been days in this ordeal where I’ve just wanted to curl up in a ball and go to sleep.
“The only person to blame is me. I have roles and responsibilities that I’m aware of and I’ve made stupid choices. But I need to own up to my mistakes — I owe it to everyone.
“My actions have caused a lot of pain to a lot of people. I’m sorry because, as a family, this isn’t meant to happen.”
Kyle Walker's history with Annie and Lauryn
With 81 caps won for England under his belt and a treble with Man City last season, Kyle claimed he was speaking out for his family.
Annie was 17 years old when Kyle, who led his nation for the first time in a 1-1 draw with North Macedonia in November, first met her.
Since his early 20s, Kyle claimed to have known Lauryn.
He maintained that there had never been a relationship, whatever her assertions.
However, she gave birth to a son in April 2020, and she subsequently made Kyle's fatherhood public.
He remembers calling Annie from the training ground in City to alert her before word spread.
Kyle left the family house to live in an £8,000-per-month rental in the adjacent town of Hale, Cheshire.
Afterward, Annie consented to have him returned for the benefit of their kids.
Kyle promised that other than their continued financial agreements, he would not communicate with Lauryn.
However, Lauryn disclosed in August 2022 that she intended to move 245 miles from Brighton to live just outside his door.
