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.
