Danielle Box shares a rare photo of ex-husband Gary Lineker with lookalike daughter Ella, 20, as the former friends reunite for their annual Christmas dinner.
Not everyone fantasizes about having a drink with their ex, but Daniel Box and Gary Lineker were like old friends after they reunited for Christmas on Wednesday night.
The former couple have remained on good terms since ending their seven-year marriage in 2016, and Danielle – who has since remarried – joined the Match Of The Day host during her recent trip to London.
Taking to Instagram, the 43-year-old Los Angeles-based mom-of-two shared a rare photo of her daughter lookalike 20-year-old Ella — her eldest child from a previous relationship — alongside retired soccer player Gary, 62, before Annual Christmas dinner. .

Posting the same image on his own social media platform, former Tottenham Hotspur and England striker Gary wrote: “Always fun.”
The former couple confirmed their separation in 2016 after nine years of marriage, and Danielle later moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.
Danielle also posted photos from a local ice rink, where she was joined by her five-year-old daughter Romy – her baby with second husband Nate Greenwald.
Danielle’s affair with Greenwald, an Ivy League-educated attorney with the CAA, was confirmed shortly after she moved to the United States.

The model and actress, who is already a father to daughter Ella from a previous relationship, announced that she was expecting her first child with Greenwald in February 2017.
A source told The Sun at the time: ‘She’s so happy and excited that she’s pregnant. She had been keeping a secret until she was over 12 weeks old but now she is telling family and friends.
Which is cool because Gary never wanted to have kids with her. This was one of the reasons for their separation. So I thought maybe she had missed her chance to have more children.
The couple welcomed their daughter, Romy and Reign, in August 2017.

Confirming the news in a series of Instagram posts, she wrote: “Our baby girl Romy and Ren Greenwald has arrived. Phenomenal, as expected. 8.5 lbs. 8/8/17″.
Shortly after announcing her pregnancy, her ex-husband Gary was reportedly one of the first to congratulate the couple.
A source claimed, “Daniel and Gary remain good friends and will continue to see each other in that capacity with Nate’s full blessing.”

Speaking to the Express in 2019, Gary admitted that he communicates a lot with Greeenwald during his trips to visit Daniel in Southern California.
He said, “He has no jealous bone in his body.” ‘We are getting along well. We go out to dinner when I’m in LA. It might be unusual and people might say, “This is weird” but, honestly, I don’t care. What is normal?
And is it better to shoot and end up fighting, screaming and screaming? Or is it better to continue if you can?
