"Such a great day!"

The former Proteas captain Graeme Smith’s (36) estranged wife, Morgan Deane, can finally go home. The case against the mother of two for remaining in the country illegally has been thrown out of court. That means that Morgan (33), who hasn’t visited her homeland or seen her two siblings in two years, can go back to Ireland.

Morgan and Graeme’s divorce will only be finalised next month. The pair married in 2011 but announced they were splitting up in December 2015.

She has a four-year-old son and three-year-old daughter with the retired cricketer -- and Graeme has since become a father again with his partner, Cape Town lawyer Romy Lafranchi.

Morgan recently revealed on her blog, The Green Girl’s Guide to Divorce, how the divorce affected her and the children.

“My daughter used to wake up screaming. As she awoke, I could see her struggling to recognise which house she was in. She was confused and out of her routine,” writes Morgan.

“There was so much change happening, and yet my children were still so young. Eventually it stopped, but even now, to this day, strange new behaviours crop up from time to time. The family that my children knew no longer exists, and they needed some time to adjust.”
