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.”
