Meet Rebekah Vardy's children after she welcomes baby Olivia with husband Jamie
Rebekah Vardy's children are her top priority – and the doting mother has made no secret that family always comes first.
The Dancing on Ice star and husband family have six children between them. But who are Rebekah Vardy's children and is Jamie the biological father to all of them? Here's everything you need to know...
Who are Rebekah Vardy's children?
Rebekah Vardy's children Megan, Taylor, Sofia, Finley and Olivia are no stranger to the public eye. She and husband Jamie are doting to parents all five kids and they often share cute family snaps on Instagram.
However, Jamie is not the biological father of all five. Megan and Taylor are from Rebekah's previous relationship – but Jamie has since adopted them.
Rebekah and Jamie welcome they first child together Sofia before they wed in 2016.
They then welcomed their second child, a son, Finley, in January of 2017. And on the 28th December, 2019, the 38-year-old announced that she had given birth to daughter, Olivia.
Jamie also has daughter, Ella, from his relationship with Emma Daggett. However, his ex has claimed that the father and daughter are not close. She told The Sun: "It’s difficult. He’s never really around so he can’t really commit to her. He doesn’t see her very often. It’s maybe once a month."
Rebekah and Jamie announced the birth of Olivia with a photoshoot in Hello! Magazine. She told the publication that the newborn's siblings helped choose Olivia's name, and that she'd been "ill with anxiety and stress" in the weeks leading up to the birth.
"[I was] panicking that she might be born on Christmas Day, while Jamie was training and I was on my own with the kids. The last thing I wanted was to miss Christmas Day with our children."
"So happy to introduce you to our little princess, Olivia Grace," she added on Instagram.
How long have Rebekah and Jamie Vardy been married?
The pair met back in 2014, when Rebekah was working at a party planner, and they have been married for four years.
At the time, she was hired to organise the English footballer's 27th birthday party. After two years together, in 2016, they tied the knot at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire.
Speaking about her relationship with her husband in an interview with Fabulous magazine, Rebekah stated: "But then I met Jamie. It took a while for me to trust him and I think the relationship we have now is the only relationship I’ve ever felt stable in."
"I love and trust him. My husband ain’t like the rest of them. He’s so not. He’s so supportive of everything I do, everything I say and everything I stand for. He knows the battles I’ve endured and where I’ve come from to where I am now," she continued.
Why didn't Jamie Vardy's parents attend his wedding?
The footballer once had a bitter feud with his parents over his relationship with Rebekah.
Ahead of their nuptials in 2016, Jamie fell out with his parents and maternal grandparents.
Speaking at the time, his father Phil told The Sun: "We don’t talk to Jamie. I have given 22 years of life to get him where he is today and I’ve had it all thrown back in my face. We won’t be going to the wedding. It’s been going on for a year now since she came on the scene."
Jamie's mother Lisa worked at a solicitors firm, and his father, Phil, as a crane worker. They are based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.
Rebekah Vardy's relationship with her parents explained
Rebekah shares a close relationship with her 67-year-old father, Carlos Miranda. He works as a chauffeur in Bournemouth, and is no longer married to her mother, Alison Nicholson.
During the height of the "Wagatha Christie" scandal, he talked to the MailOnline, claiming his daughter was "devastated".
"I can't believe a pro's wife would say something like that to another pro's wife without any proof whatsoever," he said. "Jamie and Wayne played together and it's just awful that people can make accusations like that, especially when Rebekah is pregnant. Her account must have been hacked."
He added: "I felt I had to say something because my daughter is so upset by the whole thing. Rebekah has only ever had praise for Coleen — I'm just stunned."
Rebekah's mother also failed to attend the media personality's nuptials, according to the Daily Star. But the reason why has not been disclosed.
At the time, she said: "We'd rather not say why even though it's obvious people are now going to be wondering why the bride's mother isn't at her 34-year-old daughter's wedding."
Who is Rebekah's former husband, Luke Foster?
Luke Foster is an English semi-professional footballer. He plays as a defender for Northern Premier League Division One East club Loughborough Dynamo.
Speaking about his split from Rebekah to The Mirror, the 35-year-old said about Jamie: "I feel sorry for him because it’s all about control with Becky. It’s my way or the highway with her. I fell out with my mum for six months while with Becky. It was over something trivial but I took Becky’s side. My mum was mortified."
"Becky stopped me from going out with my friends. I even missed out on going to Las Vegas with my Stevenage team-mates. We got promoted and the club were paying for us to go to celebrate and I was told I couldn’t go. She said ‘If you go, we are over.’ I wanted to celebrate one of the pinnacles of my career but I couldn’t."
"I was kind of relieved. I thought 'thank God', she’s off my hands," he added.
Rebekah fired back at the claims, however. In a statement released to the Sunday Mirror back in 2017, her lawyers stated:
"It’s upsetting Luke felt the need to sell yet another untrue story on the mother of his seven-year-old son."
What is Rebekah Vardy's net worth?
While Rebekah's exact net worth is unknown, it's estimated that Jamie's amounts to around £10 million.
The WAG is, however, seeking substantial damages from Coleen Rooney as "Operation Wagatha Christie" goes to court.
The Sun reports that the pair have been warned about the financial implications of the case. "This case is particularly straightforward and I shall not expect costs above £25,000 (excluding VAT) for each party," Justice Nicklin explained. "I encourage the parties to reach an agreement about costs budgeting."
