The Coronation Street star confirmed this week she has temporarily split from Dan, whom she became engaged to last year.
Kym, 38, said: "We are both going through a really difficult time and it's tough obviously because there is that media spotlight but we've had a lot of support from our family and friends and that's been invaluable to us both.
"I think our priorities are our children, we're both kind of focusing on our kids and work at the moment."
She added: "It is difficult, particularly when people feel that they know exactly what's going on, when actually they know nothing.
As for whether they will get back together, she would only say: "That's something for me and Dan to discuss together."
Kym is mum to three children – Emily, David and Polly – while Dan has a child with his former girlfriend, Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Waring.
Neither Kym nor Dan has explained what fuelled their split, but both have kept references to each other in their Twitter bios and not replaced the images of them as a couple set as profile pictures.
Dan tweeted: "Nothing's broken off. We are having space and a break. False headlines. Please leave us alone with the horrible comments."
