Karen Hauer is Romantically Involved With Simon Davidson
Karen Hauer has gone public with her new boyfriend three months after her marriage ended. Hauer confirmed her relationship with ex-rugby player Simon Davidson on Instagram, shortly after her separation from ex-husband Jordan Jones Williams.
Hauer and Davidson were first seen together leaving the Strictly final in December. Simon shared a sweet photo of them on a walk for his 38th birthday, captioning it with a message about the unpredictable nature of life and the importance of living in the moment.
Karen responded with a heart emoji and shared Simon's post on her Instagram Stories. They also enjoyed a belated birthday breakfast together on Monday.
The couple received warm wishes from Strictly Come Dancing stars and fans on social media. Hauer's fellow Strictly pro-Gorka Márquez expressed his happiness for them.
This new relationship follows Karen's split from her third husband, Jordan, after just over a year of marriage. In an interview with The Mail on Sunday, Jordan acknowledged his admiration for Karen's dancing career but mentioned that it often kept her away from him.

Karen Hauer, a New York native, tried out for the U.S. talent show So You Think You Can Dance in 2009 with her first husband and former dance partner, Matthew Hauer. They performed impressively in the competition, and Karen reached the top 20.

Karen Hauer got married to another dancer, her colleague from Strictly, Kevin Clifton, in 2015. He proposed to her on stage while they were performing in their show Burn the Floor.
While they were together, Hauer was known professionally as Karen Clifton. They publicly announced their separation in March 2018 after many rumors that they weren't getting along, and there were reports about Karen having an affair.
In 2019, Kevin talked openly about their divorce in an interview, admitting that his drinking played a part. He shared with The Mail that his marriage with Karen faced problems when he got stressed and started "going out and drinking all the time."
Kevin explained, "I was constantly stressed out, emotional, constantly sad. It got to a point, and then Karen and I broke up." He is now happily in a relationship with his new partner, Stacey Dooley, and both he and Karen hold no grudges.
Karen Hauer and opera singer David Webb appeared to be in a happy relationship. They moved in together and even adopted a dog named Marley.
In a joint interview with HELLO! magazine, Hauer described Webb as "her rock" and expressed her appreciation for his understanding and acceptance. She mentioned how nice it was to have someone who doesn't judge or try to change her.
Karen also shared that everyone falls in love with him because he has a beautiful soul. David, in turn, praised Karen, saying she inspires him to be the best version of himself and that he considers himself the luckiest man on earth.
Surprising their fans, the pair announced their split after two years together. Despite parting ways, they reportedly maintain a friendly relationship.

Jordan shared with the Daily Mail after the separation, describing it as a love story with a tinge of sadness. He expressed deep sorrow at not being part of Karen's life but acknowledged that they weren't suitable for each other considering her career.
Williams revealed his desire to start a family, highlighting that Karen prioritized her career over building a family, contributing to the strain in their relationship.
