Who is Mark Allen’s fiancée Aideen Cassidy?

Aideen Cassidy became engaged to Mark Allen in 2022.

The couple met through mutual friends and became close during the Covid-19 pandemic when they would go for long walks and coffees together.

She’s given me nothing but support… I’d imagine not many other partners would have stuck by their other half like she stuck by me.

In January 2023 Belfast Live reported that they were set to tie the knot in June of that year but, as of February 2024, Cassidy and Allen don’t appear to have wed.

In an interview with the publication, Allen praised his partner for sticking by him.

He revealed how Cassidy had stayed by his side through various life events that occurred during their relationship, including his bankruptcy and divorce from his ex-wife.

Allen said of his fiancée: “She’s given me nothing but support on and off the table in the two-and-a-half years that I’ve known her.

“I’d imagine not many other partners would have stuck by their other half like she stuck by me.

“We’ve been through some really, really bad times and a lot of people would have done a runner a long time ago with all the things that have gone on.

“She constantly had to endure all of the solicitor’s letters and court hearings.

“I don’t think many people would have stuck around; more fool her to be honest!”

He added: “In all honesty, everything that’s happened has made us stronger and I’d like to think we’re through the most of it now.”

Cassidy, who is often seen supporting Allen at snooker tournaments, has a daughter.

Do the pair have any children?

Allen and Cassidy don’t have any children together but the snooker player is the father of two daughters.

He has one child, named Lauren, with his ex Reanne Evans.

The former couple had the little girl in 2006 when they were both 20 years old.

Allen revealed in 2022 that he doesn’t keep in touch with his eldest daughter.

He told The Sportsman: “As much as I don’t see Lauren I still think about her all the time.”

The sportsman had his second child, Harleigh, with his ex-wife Kyla McGuigan.

Harleigh was born in 2017 and her parents split three years later.

Allen has spoken about raising Harleigh alongside his fiancée’s own daughter.

He told Belfast Live in 2023: “The two girls are growing up together and they love each other’s company.

“They’re bonding so well and that’s something me and Aideen have done well together because they’re growing up as a family.”

Who is Mark Allen’s ex-partner Reanne Evans?

Reanne Evans MBE is a professional snooker player and television pundit.

She was born on October 25, 1985, in Dudley, West Midlands.

The player made her snooker debut at the 2002 World Championship and went on to score a record 12 world titles.

Evans was recognised for her services to snooker as part of the Queen‘s Birthday Honours in October 2020.

Allen and Evans were in a relationship when they were younger and welcomed a daughter together in 2006.

They split in 2008 and their break up led to an acrimonious child support battle.

In 2022 Allen confirmed that their legal situation was “still ongoing”.

“I would love nothing more than to get that sorted and then we could all move on,” he told The Sportsman.

The former couple had an awkward clash in August 2021 when they played each other at the British Open in Leicester.

The showdown came months after Allen asked Evans, who working as a BBC pundit at the time, to leave a room where he was practising at the World Championships.
