Kate Wright details home life while Rio Ferdinand attends World Cup




Last year, Kate Wright moved in with her beau Rio Ferdinand and has since taken on the role of stepmother to his three children – Lorenz, 11, Tate, nine, and Tia, six.

And while her handsome boyfriend gets to work on the World Cup in Russia, the 27-year-old former TOWIE star spoke exclusively to MailOnline about life at home with her stepkids as she launched Panasonic’s new Rose Gold Duo hair styling range.

Clearly proud of her latest venture, the blonde beauty revealed how spectacularly the new hairdryer and straighteners fit into her life as a busy parent, as she can keep her stunning good looks in tact thanks to the fast work of the products.

Kate and Rio, who began dating two years after he tragically lost his wife Rebecca, 34, following a short battle with cancer, make no secret of their family life on social media yet they are currently geographically separated while Rio heads to work.

Proving herself to be every inch the multi-tasker, on Tuesday, Kate took some time out of childcare duty to launch the chic new products, which she admits slot perfectly into her busy life – with the help of the fast-drying nozzle added in. 

She said: ‘I’m always in a mad rush in the morning trying to get out of the house especially with the kids so I just love the hairdryer as well as the straightener…

‘It’s the main one and it’s got a quick drying nozzle so if you want to just get out of the house quickly and dry your hair so much quicker this is so much better than any other product out there.’

Having turned her back on her showbiz life, Kate revealed what her day entails, as she told MailOnline: ‘I like to go to bed early, it sounds ridiculous but I’m like a granny! I’m asleep by 9pm but I am up at 6am. 

‘We have dinner, do homework, a bit of fun time, then the kids go to bed, I go to bed. I like to wash my hair in the morning so the Panasonic is great as I just blow-dry, give it a quick straighten and then get up and give the kids breakfast…

‘The rose gold hairdryer is so easy for me in the morning and I save five minutes.’

Kate confessed she is pretty secure in her looks, yet revealed she does always like to have flawless hair and skin so takes care of those assets.

We enjoy working out and we do it not just Rio and I k,but we do walks and bike rides and things like that but I think in general it’s important.’

On life as a stepmum, she said: ‘It is challenging but it’s just as amazing. It was always going to be a hard job, it was never going to be easy but I love it and I couldn’t imagine life without the three children.’

‘You feel you always need to look amazing but it’s not reality. I do like to keep fit but like everyone else I do have my off days but I’m not fussed about it at the weekend.’  

Further on her beauty regime, she said: ‘I think – take care of your skin. I think it’s funny the products are rose gold because I’ve always loved that look!

‘I love highlighter and I always take care of my skin and my hair and they are what people see before they know you personally.’

With so many stars fond of using digital wizardry on social media, Kate admitted she has only ever dabbled in the world of Photoshop. 

She said: ‘I’ve smoothed out a few spots in the past but I don’t Photoshop my body no. I’m not really against or for it. It doesn’t bother me what others do or don’t do but I wouldn’t.’

Kate has grown close to his brood – claiming to have gained ‘the four most precious people’ in her life – and previously said she feels ready to have children of her own, yet previously explained her priority was to keep his wife Rebecca’s memory alive.

She said: ‘You only have one mum, their mum is irreplaceable. There’s a special room in the house, for their [late] mum and their nan – they might do homework there for example.

‘We always celebrate Rebecca’s birthday, we all go to cemetery together. We do talk about their mum, I know a lot more about her than they think.’

Kate explained: ‘Everyone thinks I’m crazy, even my mum was like, “You’re mad!” But I had two choices. I was in this world of drama and in the public eye. 

‘Then I met Rio, he had children who lost their mum, they didn’t have a woman in their lives. Someone needs to be at home and give them love.’

The former reality star confessed the hardest thing has been learning how to discipline three young children and gain their respect and trust.

She said: ‘At the beginning one person said to me, “You don’t know how to look after children, you don’t have any!’ It hurts your feelings when you’re trying your best.

‘When they break rules, “I’m like, right, you’re not having your phone!” If their dad’s not at home, I get my phone out and pretend to record them and send it to dad.’ 

All her efforts appear to be paying off since Lorenz, Tate and Tia have finally embraced Kate as a part of their family.
