Former American actor Kate Wright has decided to quit the glamour world and become a full-time mother to her footballer beau Rio Ferdinand's three kids — Lorenz, 11, Tate, nine, and Tia, six.

Reports of their romance started doing the rounds since January, nearly two years after Ferdinand lost his wife Rebecca following a battle with breast cancer in 2015.

"I'm taking a step back from the public eye, I want to keep my life private as I lived my previous relationship on TOWIE (TV series The Only Way Is Essex), my priority right now is Rio and the family," Wright told British tabloid, The Sun.

Despite getting lucrative endorsement offers, she has decided to cut ties with even showbiz agents and several brands.

"Kate left TOWIE because she wanted to be away from the limelight. But interest continued to be sky high and she struggled to visit the gym and go on holiday in peace. She hopes having no links with brands and no longer being on TV will help give her the quiet life she longs for with her new family," her friend told the British tabloid.
