The former England footballer only recently spoke out about his romance with the TOWIE beauty, and rarely shares photographs of the pair despite confirming their relationship.
But now, Rio Ferdinand has taken to Instagram to share a very heartwarming photo of the blonde beauty, holding hands with his children as they holiday together in Dubai.
Rio wasn’t in the picture himself, but showed gorgeous Kate Wright alongside his three children – Tate, Lorenz and Tia, who he had with late wife Rebecca Ellison.
He captioned the adorable shot: “Out for dinner,” completing the message with a deep hashtag which simply read: “#Familytime”.
And fans were quick to comment on the gorgeous snap, with one saying: “So happy for you @rioferdy5and the your kids. Lovely pic.”
“So sad what theyve been through… i really hope he and his children find happiness with this young lady xx,” while a third added: “God bless you and your family Rio #purelove.”

Rio Ferdinand tragically lost his wife Rebecca back in 2015, when she died aged 34 following a breast cancer battle. Rio’s mum Janice died in July this year, aged 58, following her own tragic cancer battle – just two years after Rebecca’s death.
Rio is currently raising the pair’s three children alone, and recently confirmed he was dating TOWIE beauty Kate.
He recently opened up about his new relationship with Kate on This Morning as he revealed that she’s having a ‘positive effect’ on his children.
Rio was on This Morning with Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield to talk about his new biography called Thinking Out Loud: Love, Grief and Being Mum and Dad.
Talking about his new autobiography, the footballing legend admitted that it’s a book to help people going through a similar experience, especially his children. He went on to emotionally admit: “Showing emotion in my house, was never, I never really saw affection or love like that.
“That’s why in my relationship now, and with my children, I don’t want to make that same mistake again because God forbid if something happens, I want to be comfortable and know that person, and the kids, know exactly how I am and how I feel. That’s a work in progress right now.”
While Rio went on to sweetly talk about his new relationship with Kate, adding : “I’m really happy now, the kids are very happy – the happiest they have been, I’m in a relationship and it’s going well. My kids deserve to be happy they’ve had tragedy in their life.They have to be part of that conversation so there’s not been any stage going into the relationship where they’ve not been involved.”
