in memory of mum
Rio and Sian’s mum Janice tragically died from cancer a couple of week ago
KATE Wright joined boyfriend Rio Ferdinand’s sister Sian today to take part in Race In Life in memory of her boyfriend and and Sian’s mother Janice St Fort.
The Towie star and Sian both wore images of Janice on their vest as got involved in the Cancer Research fundraising event.
Sharing a video of them online, Sian wrote about her decision to honour her mother alongside Kate.
She wrote: “As I write this message a tear drops down, mummy the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my 24years of living is having to say goodnight to you.. holding your hand kissing your cheek as you took your last breath was a heartache I’ll never forget, but to know your not in any pain or suffering will be the biggest relief.”
She continued: “I love you so much mummy! I wish I could have said more spent more and done more with you but I know you’ll always be with me.
“Mummy me and Katie completed the 5K in honour of you today & we know you was with us every step of the way. We love you so much… Your Royals [email protected]”
Kate, 26, has been dating former England and Man Utd defender Rio, 38, since the start of the year and already appears to be very much part of the family.
This month the family were rocked by the death of Rio’s mum at the age of 58 from cancer.
Rio was left devastated after his mum lost her battle with cancer, just two years after he lost his wife Rebecca Ellison to the disease.
Kate paid tribute to Janice on her Instagram page with a meme featuring the words: “Always loved, never forgotten, forever missed.”

Following the new Kate was seen strolling hand in hand with Rio’s daughter on a family day out – showing just what a support she has been to the family.
An onlooker told The Sun: “They looked very comfortable, like a couple who’ve known each other a while.
“Rio looked quite pensive, and very conscious of looking after his daughter — and Kate was helping.”
A source close to Rio said: “Losing his mum was heartbreaking for him and the kids. Kate is trying to be supportive, while also giving him space to grieve. But it is telling he has welcomed her at such a difficult time.”
