Interior designer Ashley Hicks left his pregnant wife, Kata, for a friend of hers, Martina Mondadori Sartogo, publisher of Cabana magazine, according to a Page Six report in the New York Post.

Mondari Sartogo lives in London with her husband and three children.

The affair began in June when, Ashley, a grandson of the late Earl Mountbatten of Burma, and Martina traveled together to Genoa, Italy, for a business trip.

A month later, Kata learned that she was pregnant with a second child.   The couple's first child, Caspian William Donald Sebastian, was born on January 21, 2018 in Oxford.   Martina is one of Caspian's godparents.

Ashley "confessed" to Kata about the affair in mid-August.  On August 28, he sent an email to a friend:   "You’ll think me a perfect monster, I’m sure, but I’ve actually left my poor pregnant wife in order to be with my lovely friend Martina . . . Oh, dear.”

That is absolutely shocking. Absolutely unbelievable. Poor Kata.

Well, this isn't the first nor will it be the last time a man runs off with his wife's "best friend" (see HRH Chantal Houchuli and Princess Caroline). According to the story, the woman in question, Martina Mondadori, is also married and the mother of three children- quite the straying madonna, if you will. This situation is not as shocking as it is another example of irresponsible, amoral, self-centered-people at play. His assessment of the situation is: “You’ll think me a perfect monster, I’m sure, but I’ve actually left my poor pregnant wife in order to be with my lovely friend Martina . . . Oh, dear.”

I want to say Kata is lucky to be rid of him. Hopefully she'll get a good lawyer and get herself comfortably situated for herself, her little boy Caspian, and baby to come.

Really not much of a friend!

She is the winner in this! Keep going and never look back! What a cad he is and she is no friend. Frankly, I am not clear on what anyone sees him anyway.
