Kate Wright has been opening up on This Morning on Tuesday where she talked about becoming step mum to Rio Ferdinand’s children and she also spoke about how she has talked about having children of her own with the footballer.
Kate admitted in the interview that Rio and his three children have become the four most precious people’ in her life as she confessed:
‘You only have one mum, their mum is irreplaceable. There’s a special room in the house, for their [late] mum and their nan – they might do homework there for example.
‘We always celebrate Rebecca’s birthday, we all go to cemetery together. We do talk about their mum, I know a lot more about her than they think.’
Kate who found fame on The Only Way Is Essex quit the show and her job in the media to focus on being stepmum to the three children and she said that all her family7 thought she was crazy wanting to give up her career as she continued to say:
‘Everyone thinks I’m crazy, even my mum was like, “You’re mad!” But I had two choices. I was in this world of drama and in the public eye.
‘Then I met Rio, he had children who lost their mum, they didn’t have a woman in their lives. Someone needs to be at home and give them love.’
She seemed to really love them children during the interview today.
His relationship was leaked in the press when photos where published online of Rio Ferdinand and TOWIEstar Kate wright where spotted together but now Rio has talked and confirmed his relationship on This Morning.
Rio was on the ITV show to talk about his new book and how he is being both mother and father to his three children Lorenz, 11, Tate, nine, and Tia, six after the death of his wife Rebecca who passed away two years ago.
Rio said to Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that he is “really happy now” and that his kids are the “happiest they’ve ever been”.
He said on Thursday morning:
“I’m really happy now, the kids are really happy, it’s the happiest they’ve been. I’m in a relationship and it’s going well,” he revealed.
“My kids deserve to be happy, they’ve had tragedy for the last few years of their lives.
“They have to be part of that conversation. There’s not been at any stage going into this relationship that they’ve not been involved. Even in terms of introducing – how they want it to be done.
“As long they feel involved in that conversation, I think there’s a chance that you can get to that place of happiness.”
Rio seems so brave on the show today and it is so nice to know that the children have excepted Kate into their lives.
Today on This Morning Megan McKenna was appearing on the show to talk about the new series of The Only Way Is Essex with fellow co-stars Kate Wright and Bobby Norris Cole but her boyfriend Pete Wicks was meant to be on the show with her but he failed to turn up to the ITV studios.
During the interview Megan got teared up when she was asked about her relationship as she confirmed that they have ‘split’ again.
Talking to presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford the brunette said:
‘It’s complicated at the moment with me and him. It’s not the best time for us to be together.’
It was Ruth that annouced that Pete pulled out of the interview at the last minute and that’s when she decided to ask Megan about how she would have reacted if Pete would have bene there for the interview.
‘I’d be professional. Out of respect for each other we won’t speak about each other. But right now it’s complicated.’
She needs to stay away from him to tell the truth.
