When asked about how Stephanie is coping with his revelation, Phillip explained: “Yeah, it’s tough, but this is not something that’s happened quickly, I’ve had to deal with this in my head for quite some time.
“We’ve been honest and open. Steph… I can’t write in any statement what I feel about that woman. She’s amazing, she’s incredible.
“There is no one in my life who would have supported me the way… as a wife, as the way she’s supported me.
“She’s astonishing, literally astonishing,” he added while welling up with tears.
Stephanie is yet to speak out on her husband’s announcement.
