I think it's important to remember that this album isn't entirely about his divorce. In the midst of his heartache, he also started a new relationship and had a child. Not all of these songs are about his ex-wife.
Also, as per the above, I had zero idea he had a kid. Total surprise.
The whole thing was kind of under the radar, though I do think I recall him tweeting a photo of his newborn child (a daughter, I believe). He's married again as well, which will hopefully make travelling the world and singing these damned depressing songs a bit easier on his spirit.
