Phil Foden and his 22-year-old partner Rebecca Cooke are childhood sweethearts, having met at a party in Stockport as teenagers. The footballer was just 18 when they welcomed their eldest son Ronnie in January 2019, followed by a daughter named True in July 2021.

Manchester City midfielder Phil, who is expecting his third child with Rebecca, tends to keep his home life private, but he made a rare confession about the "life-changing" moment he became a father for the first time.

"I was there for the birth. I walked out of the room, gave it a little tear and then went back in like nothing happened. I’m not one for crying in front of people.

"I like to be on my own, but I was there in the room, watched it happen and it was a special moment. Your life changes," he told Manchester City.

England midfielder Jude Bellingham, 20, is thought to be dating Dutch model Laura Celia Valk, 25. However, they have kept their rumoured romance under wraps and have not been pictured together. 

According to The Sun, the Birmingham-born football star had flown Laura – who has modelled for the likes of PrettyLittleThing – from Amsterdam to his home in the exclusive La Finca neighbourhood in Spain for a series of dates.

Kyle Walker and Annie Kilner

Kyle Walker's on-off relationship with his wife Annie Kilner has hit the headlines on several occasions. The pair's love story began in 2010 when they were teenagers, with Annie telling The Sun: "When we started going out it was love at first sight."

They briefly split in 2019, after Ex on the Beach star Laura Brown claimed he had been unfaithful with her. He then fathered a son named Kairo with Lauryn Goodman in 2020 before reconciling with Annie.

The couple – who are parents to Roman, 11, Riaan, seven, Reign, five, and two-month-old baby Rezon – got married in November 2021. Their relationship was rocked once again after Lauryn confirmed in January 2024 that Kyle was the father to her second child, whom she welcomed in 2023. 

He opened up to the Sun on Sunday: "What I've done is horrible and I take full responsibility. I made idiot choices and idiot decisions. I can't begin to think or imagine what Annie is going through.

"I've tried to ask her but there’s pain and hurt. The man that’s meant to love, care and be there for her, did this." He continued: "When I met Annie at 17, I never envisaged my private life being like this. I never thought I would be a father of six." Annie and Kyle are thought to have rekindled their relationship.

The interior design expert often posts family photos on Instagram. One from May included a gushing caption about how "proud" Ellie was of the footballer.

"Wow! What a season!! Haven’t stopped crying happy tears since it started, sooo proud of you. Your hard work is paying off and you deserve every part of it and how lucky are the kids and I to witness it all. Love you OW," she wrote.

Harry Kane and his wife Kate tied the knot in June 2019 in an intimate wedding ceremony and managed to keep their big day a secret. One month later, they shared some gorgeous photos on Instagram showing off Kate's two elegant wedding dresses.

Kate's first was an elegant strapless gown from Ralph and Russo, with intricate beading on the top and a mermaid silhouette fit. Blue detailing was a sentimental addition to her dress, with the names of Harry and their two daughters embroidered into the inside of the train.

For the evening reception, Kate changed into her second dress and although she did not reveal the bottom, the V-neck bodice was full of soft floral embroidery.

Harry got down on one knee in July 2017 and popped the question to Kate during their family holiday in the Bahamas. They now share four kids: Ivy, Vivienne, Louis and Henry.

The couple got engaged back in 2018 and had their civil ceremony in 2020, where Megan wore a white blouse surrounded by celebratory balloons.

She took to Instagram on 18 May 2020 to share what would have been their wedding day in the Maldives but instead posted a throwback of their civil ceremony.

She wrote: "We're getting married in the morning. Well we should have been! It's all gone a bit Pete Tong, so here's a throwback of us on our legal registry office day since there are bigger things going on in the world right now. You are worth the wait my love @jpickford1."

They finally had their beachside wedding in 2022, with Megan wearing a stunning off-the-shoulder corset bridal gown and holding their son Arlo. The pair are also parents to daughter Ostara, who was born in 2023.
