Who is Tom Watson's partner?
The former MP's love life is a private affair.
Not much is known about who his partner is or if there is a partner at all.
One of the things he noted in his resignation letter was his children and that he wants to becoming healthier and wanting to enjoy those things.
He wrote: "Now is the right time for me to stand down from the House of Commons and start a different kind of life. The decision is personal, not political."
"The last few years have been among the most transformation of my personal life, second only to becoming a proud father of two beautiful children.
"I've become healthy for the first time, and I intend to continue with this work in the years to come."
