Rio Ferdinand And Kate Wright Are Engaged!
39-year-old Rio Ferdinand has proposed to his girlfriend, 27-year old Kate Wright after almost two years of dating.
The former Manchester United and England defender popped the question in front of his three children, Lorenz, Tate and Tia while they were on a family vacation in Abu Dhabi.
An excited Kate Wright took to her Instagram page this morning to share the news of the engagement. The TV personality wrote:
‘The perfect end to our holiday … How could the answer not be yes?”
Kate uploaded three pictures of the magical moment Rio popped the question. On his part, Ferdinand revealed he had included his kids in his proposal plans, and praised them for keeping the secret for so long. Posting a sweet snap of the trio watching the special moment, he wrote:
“She said yes. How these 3 kids kept it a secret I’ll never know.”
It would be recalled that Ferdinand and Wright started dating in early 2017, two years after he tragically lost his wife 34-year-old Rebecca Ellison, following a short battle with cancer.
