Rio said: “I definitely wasn’t looking for someone at that time. I didn’t think it was possible, I wasn’t open to bringing someone in to become a stepmum to the kids.
“Things don’t always go the way you imagine. Meeting Kate changed everything and sometimes it’s just fate.”
“I knew Kate was special from the moment I met her, it was pretty instant, but seeing her with the kids cemented everything, that was a huge part of it for me.

“So many pieces of the jigsaw have to click together for it to work and the wedding was the final piece.”
Kate was equally smitten with Rio when she met him, and she gushed: “The night I met Rio I knew I was going to marry him. I met him and we just clicked straight away."
She continued: "We didn’t kiss or anything but I went back to my room that night and I told all my friends that I’m going to marry him. And here I am, I just knew.
"You know when you just click – we both felt it and have talked about it since."
