Kate and Rio tied the knot back in September 2019 in a beautiful ceremony in Turkey. The couple began dating in 2017, two years after his wife Rebecca tragically died from cervical cancer. Kate and Rio's new programme comes after the former footballer won a BAFTA for his 2017 documentary Rio Ferdinand: Being Mum And Dad. The film showed Rio as he came to terms with losing his wife while caring for his children. Due to its response, the couple admitted that they felt "compelled" to tell more of their story.
