Kate Ferdinand ‘devastated’ as Rios son moves out of family home
Kate Ferdinand, 31, revealed she became very emotional when her husband Rio Ferdinand’s eldest son Lorenz, 16, left their home recently, before moving in with another family.
Lorenz, who has developed a gift for football, just like his former Manchester United player dad Rio, moved out after being signed for Brighton and Hove Albion’s under-18’s team.
Rio’s son has been signed for the team as their goalkeeper, and had to relocate away from their family home in Kent to focus on his career ambitions in the sport.
Opening up on the family farewell in her latest episode of podcast Blended, Kate told listeners: “I don’t know if anyone knows this.
“He doesn’t live at home at the moment. He’s living with another family.”
Clarifying the situation, Rio chimed in: “Because he’s playing football.”
Despite it being tricky for the couple to say goodbye to Lorenz, they have also been left beaming with pride as the family he is currently staying with have been full of praise over the teenager’s manners.
Kate divulged: “I was devastated when he moved out. It’s a real big thing, I was emotional.
“I miss him so much. We still see him twice a week but it’s taken a lot of getting used to.”
Lorenz will be getting plenty of advice from dad Rio, who played 81 times for the England national team between 1997 and 2011.

The former Manchester United ace was also a member of three FIFA World Cup squads.
Alongside Lorenz, Rio also has son Tate, 14, and daughter Tia, 11, from his marriage with his late wife Rebecca Ellison.
Rebecca tragically died from breast cancer at the age of 35 in 2015.
Kate shares two-year-old son Cree with husband Rio and is currently pregnant with the couple’s second baby together, a girl.
The mum-of-one and step-mum previously shared her heartache over missing out on a Mother’s Day card from Rio.
She said: “I wasn’t a biological mum. I think it was our first Mother’s Day – maybe I’d been living here about six months, something like that.
“And although I wasn’t a biological mum I kind of felt like I’d taken on the mum role.
“For me, going from living at home on my own to taking the kids to school, cooking them dinner, I felt like a mum.”
Addressing Rio, Kate recounted: “I really thought I might get a card from you, and I didn’t get a card from you.
“I felt bad to express that in front of you because you guys had lost your mum, and the kids have lost their mum.
“So I just went in my room and I just sobbed my heart out – seriously.”
