  • Kate Wright has seemingly pulled out all the stops to ensure that her boyfriend Rio Ferdinand has the best birthday ever.

    The couple, who have been dating since the beginning of the year, have recently been on holiday together with Rio’s kids in Dubai, and it appears that Essex-born Kate didn’t want the post-holiday blues to bother her boyfriend on his big day.

    The 26-year-old planned a special birthday surprise for Rio with his three children, complete with numerous cards, an incredible cake and lots of sweet photos and family snaps hung around the room above the dining table for Rio to wake up and discover.

    Taking to Instagram to share his delight at the sweet birthday surprise planned by Kate, Rio shared a photo of the scene with the caption: ‘Morning presents n cake…. this lot setting birthday morning standards!’

    A couple of days before his birthday, Kate had also helped Rio celebrate his big day at a big party surrounded by friends.

    Rio posted a photo of the couple, clearly having a ball at the wild bash, with the caption: ‘Wicked birthday vibes with this one!’

    Wicked birthday vibes with this one! 😘

    Kate also shared a snap from the evening describing it as the, ‘best night’.

    The celebrations for Rio clearly lasted well into the evening, with guests snapped in specially provided flipflops later on in the evening which has been left out in baskets for ladies to put on if their dancing feet got too tired in heels!


    The photos of Kate and Rio looking loved-up and happy together on his birthday come just weeks after Rio referred to Kate Wright as ‘family’ and rumours circulated that the couple are due to move in together imminently.

    Rio, who turned 39 on November 7th, described himself as ‘really happy’ with Kate and said their relationship was ‘going well’ after opening up about his love life while making an appearance on This Morning last month.
