Kate and Rio make romance official
KATE Wright and Rio Ferdinand were all smiles as they enjoyed a night out with pals as their relationship heats up.
The Towie star looked gorgeous in a bright yellow top and white skirt as she posed with Rio, 38,and three of their pals.
Kate, 26, has been dating former England and Man Utd defender Rio, 38, since the start of the year although the couple have remained tight lipped about their romance.
However, she already appears to be very much part of the family as their night out came after Kate was seen out and about with Rio and his daughter Tia.
It seems their relationship is becoming more series as not only as she met his children but now she’s been introduced to his pals.
This month the family were rocked by the death of Rio’s mum at the age of 58 from cancer.
Kate and Rio’s sister Sian took part in the Race In Life in memory of her boyfriend and and Sian’s mother Janice St Fort.
They both wore images of Janice on their vest as got involved in the Cancer Research fundraising event.
Sharing a video of them online, Sian wrote about her decision to honour her mother alongside Kate.
She wrote: “As I write this message a tear drops down, mummy the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my 24years of living is having to say goodnight to you.. holding your hand kissing your cheek as you took your last breath was a heartache I’ll never forget, but to know your not in any pain or suffering will be the biggest relief.”
She continued: “I love you so much mummy! I wish I could have said more spent more and done more with you but I know you’ll always be with me.
