Matt Winton, Freya’s ex-boyfriend, told People magazine: “She's a wonderful person and a fantastic mother. She takes life seriously in a free-spirited kind of way. They make a very nice couple.”

The relationship is between the pair is believed to be in its “first stages”, and the 58-year-old actor’s first priority is his sons.
