Daily Star - - FRONT PAGE -

LOVED-up Rio Fer­di­nand is plan­ning to tie the knot with girl­friend Kate Wright. The for­mer foot­baller said the pair have talked about get­ting mar­ried but have not set a date. Rio said: “We do talk about it. But I’m not go­ing to sit here and give you a date.” Ex-Towie star Kate told this month how Rio’s three chil­dren have begged the cou­ple to give them a brother or sis­ter. She also sparked mar­riage ru­mours af­ter turn­ing up to a show­biz bash in a wed­ding-in­spired white lace dress, left. Rio, who is a BBC pun­dit for the World Cup, gushed about how she has quit show­biz to fo­cus on rais­ing his chil­dren Lorenz, 11, Tate, nine, and Tia, seven. Kate has been dat­ing the for­mer Eng­land star, whose wife Re­becca died aged 34 in 2015, for more than a year. And even though she only turns 27 on Sun­day she has be­come like a step­mum to the chil­dren, which Rio feels is “such an im­por­tant role”. He said: “Her life’s taken a dif­fer­ent change that many peo­ple wouldn’t have ex­pected of some­one her age.”
