Inside Ioan Gruffudd’s incredible LA home with stunning pool that he shared with wife Alice Evans before shock split

 IOAN Gruffudd fans were left shocked today when his wife of 13 years announced that he had left her.

Alice Evans, 49, even went onto claim she was being "gaslit and mentally tortured" by her Welsh actor husband, after she revealed their shock split on Twitter.

But before things went wrong, the couple shared an incredible LA home.

The impressive Hollywood pad comes complete with an idyllic pool for them to take a dip in.

The posh pile also has lush gardens, where their two daughters Ella, 11, and Elsie, seven can play.

The luxurious home has an huge kitchen and impressive wooden dining area for entertaining.

Meanwhile, today's statement about their split was later deleted and now Alice claims Ioan removed the message using her Twitter account.

She sent another tweet that read: "Hi there. I didn't delete the tweet from a few hours ago about him leaving. He did. From my account…"

"And hell yes when I am being gaslit and mentally tortured then hell yes I will wash my linen in public."

The now-deleted tweet, she was then criticised by a follower, who replied: "Seems like a weird thing to be posting on Twitter."

And Alice replied: "Why? I have lost my mind."

Another follower agreed with Alice and wrote: "I did the same when this happened to me. I think it’s how one acknowledges there’s no returning to what existed before. Accepting it by stating it publicly helps you to recognise the impossibility [of] reconciliation."

Alice replied: "This is exactly why. And thank you. Six months of harassment: yes/no/maybe. I cannot live like this anymore."

In her original Twitter post that has now been deleted, Alice wrote: "Sad news. My beloved husband/soulmate of 20 years, Ioan Gruffudd, has announced he is to leave his family, starting next week.

"Me and our young daughters girls are very confused and sad. We haven’t been given a reason except that he ‘no longer loves me.’ I’m so sorry."

However, Ioan previously revealed the pair's busy work schedules had kept them apart for much of the last four years.

He told the Guardian last February: “I think we’ve struggled the past four years, making time for each other because physically we’re apart.”

The Liar star went on to say the couple were "practical" about it, before admitting most of the parenting at home was left to Alice.

Speaking of his brief spell as a stay-at-home dad, he said: “Alice had come back, she had been away for a week. I was showing off – ‘the kids are in bed’ – and she was ‘Yeah, you’ve done one week Ioan, try six months’.”

Alice continues to refer to herself as Ioan's wife in her social media bios and neither has issued further comment.

The couple met while starring together in the film 102 Dalmatians and wed in 2007.

Their children were both conceived through IVF, with Alice writing candidly about her fertility struggles in the hope it would help others.

At age 38 she was told she had an antral follicle count of eight – two less than her doctor felt was needed for a good shot at IVF success.

However, she fell pregnant with daughter Ella after her first round of IVF, while second daughter Elsie took eight rounds of treatment.

It was an emotional and financially costly process, with each round costing around £7,000 and with only a 20 per cent chance of success.

Alice wrote in the Mail in 2016: "I know how lucky I am. I won the lottery. I get to kiss goodnight to the two most precious human beings I’ve ever met."

As well as starring as Mister Fantastic in the Fantastic Four movies, Ioan has appeared in films such as W. and Ava, as well as in TV shows such as Forever and Ringer.

His career really took off in the late 90s when he was cast in the lead role of ITV drama Hornblower.

In between his high-profile roles there have been times when work was hard to come by.

Reflecting on lean times in his 30s, Ioan previously said: “When you’re not working, in Hollywood, you get presented every week with a new poster going up and you know where you are in the pecking order."
