GRANT Kenny is reportedly no longer dating Fifi Box, despite revelations by a woman's magazine that he is the father of the TV and radio personality's unborn child.

The Daily Telegraph today reported that the two are living separate lives following their brief romance.

"It's understood Kenny - who sold his Queensland-based aviation company in January for an estimated $70 million - has agreed to support Box financially,'' news.com.au reported today.

"They were together for a little while but they're not anymore," our insider said. There was no animosity between the two, the report said.

Lisa Curry, Grant Kenny's estranged wife and mother of their three grown up children, is expected to talk about the relationship on A Current Affair tonight.

Kenny, a former ironman legend and well known and liked lifesaving identity on the Sunshine Coast, has refused to talk about the New Idea story, saying he doesn't discuss his personal life.

The magazine story, which claimed multiple unnamed sources of information, said the the pair were "surprised" by the pregnancy but had "welcomed the news with excitement".

Box went public with news of her pregnancy in November, describing it as "the truest and most indescribable joy I have ever felt.''

"For those who don't know I began seeing someone at the end of last year who would like to remain out of the public eye which I will respect and endeavour to protect.

"The focus for me is to make sure I bring a happy, healthy baby into the world who knows how much it is loved.
