Former The Only Way Is Essex beauty Kate Wright has unveiled a gorgeous present from boyfriend Rio Ferdinand’s three children.

Now blonde beauty Kate has revealed the beautiful gift that she’s been given by the young children – who refer to her as their “bonus mum”.

The former reality star, who previously dated Dan Edgar, wrote: “Always take a tea on the school break – best present”.

The gift in question was an adorable mug, which read: “Not a stepmom, a bonus mom.”

Kate recently opened up about becoming part of the family with former England legend Rio, stating how she felt about becoming a step-mum to the footballer’s offspring.

And opening up on her new role, the blonde starlet said she “couldn’t imagine” life without the kids.

“I think it was the right decision to leave the spotlight when I came into the family, I don’t think it would have been right on the children as I had to get to know the kids,” Kate explained on her decision to quit her showbiz lifestyle to settle down.

“It is challenging but it’s just as amazing. It was always going to be a hard job, it was never going to be easy but I love it and I couldn’t imagine life without the three children,” she told MailOnline.

She also opened up on looking after the children on her own, after Rio jet off to Russia to continue his World Cup commentary.

“I’m with the kids on my own and obviously we miss him but we’re having a nice time just us four as well.”

Kate even revealed how much her lifestyle has changed since becoming a step-mum, and admitted she feels like a “granny”.

“I like to go to bed early, it sounds ridiculous but I’m like a granny! I’m asleep by 9pm but I am up at 6am,” she explained. “We have dinner, do homework, a bit of fun time, then the kids go to bed, I go to bed.”
