Reality TV star Kate Ferdinand was forced to abandon a wedding and rush to her father’s bedside after he suffered a dramatic health scare.
Rio Ferdinand’s stunning wife is reported to have abandoned her children at a wedding of close friends in order to be with her father after an emergency call.
Phil, her father and electrician, is said to be in full recovery. But, since Kate was a small child, there has been a difficult relationship with him.
Kate has admitted she was “very upset” when she wasn’t invited to one of her dad’s weddings at the tender age of nine.
Essex native Phil split from her mother Jacqueline when she was three.
After their mother Rebecca died from cancer in May 2015, Rio’s three children are now governed by the blonde beauty.
Phil, an Essex native, has maintained his love for his daughter and said that he was not allowed to invite Kate at one of his weddings nearly 20 years ago.
The pair reconnected after Phil watched a 2018 TV interview, where she discussed the challenge of becoming a step-mother, with Kate later inviting them to the couple’s London mansion.
After a brief reunion, Phil walked his daughter down a aisle in her wedding to Rio in Turkey. He was also a Manchester United and England legend.
Former TOWIE star, phil, was due to attend Dean Hughes’ wedding in Cheshire last Wednesday.
But she left the kids – including bridesmaid Tia Ferdinand – in the capable hands of her child minder to be by her dad’s side.
Kate has since jetted off on a luxury getaway to Dubai with hubby Rio, where she flaunted her incredible bikini body
The new mum, who welcomed baby son Cree nine months ago, sat by the pool in the skimpy two-piece as she showed off her post-baby body.
The star recently opened up on Instagram about the birth of her son, telling fans: “After giving birth I truly never thought I would feel myself again, and honestly everything is a bit more wobbly than before.
“But I feel so much happier, I am in awe of the fact I have produced my beautiful baby boy and super proud of the woman I have become.”
