Frankie Bridge takes baby-free holiday with Wayne Bridge – but check out what she brought for comfort!

Julie Delahaye

Frankie Bridge and husband Wayne have kicked off the new year with a romantic getaway to the Maldives – and although the couple haven't brought their children along, that hasn't stopped Frankie from bringing a small memento to comfort her when she misses her two boys – Carter, one, and Parker, three - during the trip! The 28-year-old posted a selfie on Instagram while sitting on the plane before jet-setting off, revealing she had packed baby Carter's blanket to cheer her up while she is away from her sons.

"Off on our holidays!!!" she captioned the close-up snap, in which she pouts at the camera while clutching the white blanket. "…am I the only Mum that takes one of my babies Muslins with me for comfort when I'm away?! #boys #myloves #holiday #mum #cuddles #comforter."

Frankie has been giving fans serious holiday envy, posting a few photos on social media by the beach whether returning home from a fun night out at dinner, or lazing on the beach with a book.

No doubt Wayne has also been enjoying some time off after his stint in the I'm A Celebrity jungle last year. While he was in the camp the former footballer opened up about missing Frankie, and reminisced about how they initially met, admitting they were introduced by James Corden.

"I was just on a night out, and James Corden was there," he explained to his fellow campmates. "He got her phone, put my number in it. And then put her number in my phone. And then we basically text a little bit, and just ended up going for dinner."

The sweet couple started dating in 2011, and tied the knot in July 2014. Remembering his wedding to the Saturdays star, Wayne admitted: "I was an emotional wreck! I couldn't stop crying."
