Kate Wright shares photo with Rio's family and daughter

Posing with six of Rio's female family members, Kate looked like she was fully embracing her new role as a stepmother as she clutched Rio's six-year-old daughter Tia.

They have started to tentatively share photos showing that they are spending time with each others' families.

And after Kate Wright, 26, and Rio Ferdinand, 38, shared their first photo together on Saturday, it appears that there's no stopping the couple from proclaiming their love for one another online, as Kate shared a sweet family photo while on holiday in Portugal on Monday.

Posing with six of Rio's female family members - including his sister Sian, and relations Anya, Lucy and Chloe Ferdinand, who are thought to be his nieces - Kate looked like she was fully getting into the swing of Rio's family life as she tenderly cuddled Rio's six-year-old daughter Tia.
