Terry made headlines in 2010 after reports of an affair with then teammate Wayne Bridge’s girlfriend.
But yesterday his wife Toni bravely opened up about her three-year struggle to fall pregnant and said John reassured her their marriage was strong.
She told ITV’s Lorraine Kelly how she feared she would never have children with the ex-England captain for medical reasons.
And Toni revealed she asked if he was OK with him not being a dad.
Toni, 36, said: “He was 100% fine and said it will just be us, we will have loads of fun.”
Yet in 2006 Toni gave birth to twins Georgie John and Summer Rose.
And she said about her marriage to the ex-Chelsea star: “We know what’s real and what’s not real and that’s why we’ve stayed together.”
TV viewer Sammy tweeted: “Cringing at the Toni interview. Portraying the perfect family.”
And Miss L said: “How Toni stayed (with) him! I just couldn’t do it.”
Bridge’s ex Vanessa Perroncel insisted she and Terry, now an Aston Villa player, were just “friends”.
