Grief-stricken wife Tina wrote on X: “It’s with total heartbreak I write this my husband Paul chase Malone passed away this morning we are totally devastated.”

The post was flooded with messages of support and well-wishes from devastated fans.

“So sorry to hear this Tina sending my love to you and your family,” posted one.

“I’m so so sorry, Tina. I’m so sorry for your loss. I was in the army with Paul, top man,” wrote another.

“Tina I am so sorry to hear this, sending you all my love and condolences,” shared a devastated supporter.

Tina and Paul married for the first time in 2010 after dating for two years, and welcomed daughter Flame when Tina was 50 years old.

Last year, the actress told Closer: “Paul and I still have so much passion, after 13 years you know each other so well.

“He still gives me butterflies!”

Tina, who played Mimi Maguire in Shameless, also announced in 2020 their relationship was back on track after a brief time apart and revealed the “love never went away”.

Speaking to Closer about her marriage, Tina said: “The love never went away, we’re working on things now, our problems were compounded by depression but I learned that in tough times you have to pull together and not apart.”

The actress previously sparked some controversy when she announced she wanted to become a mum again with Paul when she was 54.

Speaking on Loose Women she told the panel: “I’ve always wanted a boy, and…

“[My daughter] Flame said she wanted a brother…”

Tina planned on using a surrogate to have the baby, and previously told The Sunday People: “Some will say I am selfish and irresponsible for having another child at 54.

“They will moralise and abuse me – even more so for selecting the sex of our baby – and everyone is entitled to their opinion.

“But I don’t give two f***s for what they think.”

Tina also has another daughter named Danielle from a previous relationship.

Opening up about their decision to use a surrogate, Tina admitted Paul would not let her risk her life for another child.

When pregnant with Flame, Tina developed pre-eclampsia.

Paul explained: “I couldn’t let Tina risk another pregnancy. Flame and I love her too much.”

Who is Tina Malone’s husband Paul Chase? Do they have children together?

Tina married her personal trainer husband Paul Chase in 2010 and he was 19 years her junior.

The couple welcomed a daughter together through IVF when Tina was 50.

Flame was born on 15 December in 2013.

In 2017 Tina revealed that she wanted to become a mum again with Paul – and would choose the sex of her baby.

She told The Sunday Mirror: “Some will say I am selfish and irresponsible for having another child at 54.

“They will moralise and abuse me – even more so for selecting the sex of our baby – and everyone is entitled to their opinion.

“But I don’t give two f***s for what they think.”
