The Towie babe has finally made their romance public

Kate Wright and Rio Ferdinand have now confirmed their romance after months of keeping quiet.

Both of the lovebirds share near identical snaps of themselves with Rio’s three children.

The gorgeous Kate shared a snap first, thanking a company for their matching white Yeezy trainers, which are £200 a pop.

“Thank you @mr.trendz for sourcing us our white yeezys in under a week …. best service 👟🙌🏼”, the 26-year-old wrote.

At pretty much the exact same time, Rio shared a photo of them all in a line.

Again, he thanked Mr Trendz for their new footwear: “Yes @mr.trendz with the super quick delivery of the white Yeezy’s! 👌🏽#anotherlevel”.

The couple were recently spotted out and about in London at a restaurant, so it was time that they acknowledged their relationship.

It looks like Kate is settling in fine with Rio’s three children with his late wife Rebecca Ellison – Lorenz, 10, Tate, 8 and six-year-old Tia.

Rio, 36, lost his wife to breast cancer back in 2015. She was just 34 years old. This is his first romance since she passed.

His supportive fans inundated him with comments after sharing the post.

“Wishing you and Katie all the very best x”, said one.

Another follower wrote: “Great pic ❤️ wishing you all the happiness in the world x”

Rumours first started swirling between Rio and Kate back in January, with the Manchester United star being recently pictured outside her home.

They also met up in March in Dubai to get to know each other away from the paps in the UK.

A source told MailOnline at the time: “Rio happened to be there at the same time with his footballing commitments. They met up secretly a couple of times while they were there.”
