KATE Wright refused to marry new husband Rio Ferdinand until she had done a gruelling workout to keep her “focused and happy” on her wedding day.
The 28-year-old reality star shared a video of her “wedding morning workout”, which showed her pumping weights and running on a treadmill before she walked down the aisle.
In the video she turns and tells the camera before starting the exercise: “Can’t get married before I get this done”.
She then told her one million Instagram followers in the caption: “Lots of people asking did I train the morning of the wedding …. of course I bloody DID.
“It’s not just about the body it’s about the mind … going into the best day of my life feeling focused and happy.”
Kate then gave a shout out to her former rugby union player personal trainer Mel Deane.
She said: “Thank you @meldeane12 for the wedding morning workout #itsalifestyle.” [sic]
Kate and Rio, 40, tied the knot at the five star hotel D Maris Bay in Marmaris, Turkey in front of family and friends on 27th September.
She looked spectacular in a plunging lace bodice dress that displayed her cleavage and was made in just seven days after her original outfit wasn’t made the way she wanted.
More on Kate and Rio
And Rio previously admitted that the water works started when his daughter Tia walked down the aisle first, followed by Kate.
He told OK! Magazine: “I cried as soon as the day started. Seeing Tia walk up the aisle before Kate set me off. It was just so emotional.”
The sports star went on to say he felt like Kate was “sent to them” and it was “fate” they met after first wife Rebecca Ellison died in May 2015 after a short battle with breast cancer.
