Rio takes to social media to post about the TOWIE star...
Rumours that former England footballer Rio Ferdinand and The Only Way Is Essex star Kate Wright are a couple have been circulating for a while, but neither of them have officially confirmed anything.
Until now, it seems.
Rio’s latest Instagram post – captioned: ‘Decent day with the fam ❤️’ – features the blonde Essex girl… and fans are pretty excited about it.
One commented: ‘Good luck with your new relationship Ferdinand. You so deserve happiness. xx [sic],’ while another agreed: ‘Oh you deserve all the happiness that comes your way @rioferdy5 ❤️.’
One follower gushed: ‘Yes to this 🙌🏻 kept it classy love you both as a couple! @xkatiewright @rioferdy5 💜.’
Although Rio is yet to feature on Kate’s Instagram page, the reality star has been posting a lot of stunning snaps with members of the Ferdinand family.
Kate posted this gorgeous pic alongside Rio’s sister Sian, who she recently completely a charity run with after the heartbreaking loss of the siblings’ mother.
Messages included: ‘Good to see you looking so happy @xkatiewright 💘 Truly deserved….🎉⭐️👏🏼🥂❤️ [sic],’ and: ‘@xkatiewright I hope you are both happy, you both deserve it! You seem such a strong women and I’m so body envy 😘 [sic].’
