Former South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford says her ex-husband is still seeing the Argentine woman who caused the breakup of their marriage.

Jenny Sanford appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday, saying Gov. Mark Sanford has not introduced their four children to the woman he's called his soul mate.

Gov. Sanford disappeared for five days in June 2009 and told no one where he was going. The governor came back to South Carolina and admitted to a yearlong affair with Maria Belen Chapur.

Mark Sanford said in May he spent several days in Florida with Chapur to see if they could restart their relationship. He has refused to talk about her since.

A call to Sanford's spokesman was not immediately returned Tuesday.
