Heartmelting Moment Rio Ferdinand Proposes To Kate Wright In Front Of His Three children
The former TOWIE star, 27, accepted a romantic rooftop proposal from the sports legend, 39, during a family holiday to Abu Dhabi after he popped the question in front of his three children.
Taking to her Instagram account to share the happy news with her followers on Thursday morning, the TV personality wrote: 'The perfect end to our holiday ... How could the answer not be yes.'
Kate uploaded three pictures of the magical moment Rio popped the question as his kids Lorenz, 12, Tate, 10, and Tia, seven, looked on.
The stunning cityscape images appeared to have been taken on a rooftop helicopter pad following a night-time ride.
Rio's three children could be seen looking on as their dad proposed, before rushing over to hug them both when Kate accepted.
The former England star proudly revealed he had included his kids in his proposal plans, and praised them for keeping the secret for so long.
Posting a sweet snap of the trio watching the special moment, he wrote: 'She said yes. How these 3 kids kept it a secret I’ll never know.'
The reality star started dating Rio in early 2017, two years after he tragically lost his wife Rebecca Ellison, 34, following a short battle with cancer.
