Former glamour model Polly Parsons, 34, married Barcelona defender Thomas Vermaelen, 32, in a romantic ceremony in June last year.
The couple, who began dating in 2012, have two sons together, Raff and Ace.
TV presenter Polly also bagged roles in children’s shows including Genie in the House, Toonattik, and Disastrous before meeting her footballer beau.

Rafaella, who has proudly sported Belgian flag face paint at her husband’s games, boasts more than 47,000 Instagram followers.
She is not shy about showing off her figure and often shares snaps of herself in bikinis.
Beauty queen: Former Miss Belgium Noemie Happart at a Belgium World Cup match
Stylish: Noemie and Yannick made time for a day out together in Russia
Noemie shot to fame in 2014 when Athletico Madrid ace Yannick Carrasco, 24, found her in an 80,000 strong crowd and kissed her after scoring.
The couple, who married in June last year, first met in a bar and Noemie had no idea Yannick was a footballer, while he was unaware of her modelling career.
They exchanged details and started messaging on Facebook, but she admitted that finding out Yannick was a footballer made her ‘pretty suspicious’.
Sealed with a kiss: Noemie shared this sweet snap of her kissing husband Yannick
‘Seducing a footballer was never one of my goals,’ she told
‘I had a fairly stereotyped image of footballers and I was afraid he had a reputation.
‘But Yannick is a great boy, so I gave him a chance, he’s a handsome guy but I was mostly charmed by his character and personality.’
Beauty Queen Noemie was crowned Miss Belgium in 2013 and gave up her plans to become a speech therapist to pursue modelling full time.

MILLIE SAVAGE – THE VERY FORGIVING TEENAGE SWEETHEART
Partner: John Stones, defender
Young love: Millie Savage has been with John Stones since they were 15 after they met at Penistone Grammar School
Mille Savage, 24, has been with Manchester City defender John Stones since she was 15 — and has hung on to him despite an embarrassing scandal.
Here, she looks a little ill-at-ease in the spotlight and truth be told she is a lesser-spotted WAG. In fact, until now her only known extravagance was a passion for the chicken restaurant Nando’s.
She and Stones met in South Yorkshire and they now live in a £3.5 million mansion in Cheshire with their toddler daughter and pet dog Buster. Stones earns £100,000 a week playing for City.
The couple bought the house after Millie forgave her boyfriend for cheating with events organiser Jessica Peaty. She claimed in 2016 that she and Stones had met for sex at a hotel in Manchester, and enjoyed a ten-week fling after he told her he and Millie were no longer in a relationship.
After the story was published, Stones had a picture of Millie’s face tattooed onto his arm in a bid to prove his love.
WHAT IS SHE WEARING? A £1,500 Balmain jacket, complete with £575 Gianvito Rossi high heels and a £1,090 Yves St Laurent bag.
GEMMA ACTON – THE HOUSEWIFE WHO HATES THE SPOTLIGHT
Partner: Gary Cahill, defender
Private: Gemma Action stays off social media to concentrate on raising her two children with Gary Cahill Freya, five, and Frank, three
Brunette Gemma Cahill, 32, has never courted publicity since marrying Chelsea defender Gary Cahill and lives quietly in a £5 million mega-mansion in Surrey with staff quarters, a swimming pool, library and gym. She met Gary at school in Dronfield, Derbyshire, and they were married in 2013.
They have two children Freya, seven, and Frank, five. Cahill has been at Chelsea since 2012 and is on £130,000 a week. Gemma is noted for staying away from the England circus if she can possibly help it.
WHAT IS SHE WEARING? Pictured here with spectacular WAG hair, but a rather ordinary pair of jeans (they look similar to a £150 pair by True Religion) and nude platform wedges.
MEGAN DAVISON – COCKTAIL-LOVING INSTAGRAM FAN
Partner: Jordan Pickford, goalkeeper
Long term love: Megan Davison has been dating Everton’s Jordan Pickford since they were 14
Bubbly Megan Davison, 22 — wearing the highest heels in the line-up — met goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, left, when they were both pupils at the St Robert of Newminster Catholic School in Washington, Tyne and Wear.
Jordan was 16 and she was 14 and they have been together ever since. Megan, who is 22, recently graduated from university but doesn’t seem to have a job. The couple live together in Cheshire’s ‘Golden Triangle’ — that’s between Wilmslow, Alderley Edge and Prestbury — in a rented WAG-tastic super-mansion.
Pickford, who built his reputation playing for Sunderland, now earns £90,000 a week at Everton, and is the most expensive British keeper in history.
Meghan, 22, is an ‘Instagram addict’ with platinum hair, high-definition eyebrows and a collection of designer dresses to die for. She regularly posts pictures of herself on beaches around the world, generally holding a glass of champagne or pink cocktail.
WHAT IS SHE WEARING? A blue lace top — and a Wag-tastic £2,239 rose-gold Chanel bag.

Becky has two children, Finlay and Sofia with Vardy, and two children from previous relationships. She’s been married before and had a fling with pop star Peter Andre — formerly married to model Katie Price — who spotted her in a restaurant and arranged to meet with her in a hotel.

Model Annie Kilner has three sons with 28-year-old defender Kyle Walker but just this week she told OK! magazine she hoped the couple could have a daughter soon to balance out the household.
Their five-bedroom house in Cheshire is already home to six-year-old Roman, two-year-old Riaan and nine-month-old Reign.
But Miss Kilner, 25, said she wanted a little girl because she felt ‘outnumbered’ in the house.
The couple met in their hometown of Sheffield when Miss Kilner was 16 and Walker 19. The fashion model described their first meeting as ‘love at first sight’.
But Walker, now a £130,000-a-week star of Manchester City, ran into trouble in 2016, when it was revealed he had been texting Playboy model Carla Howe while he was in France for the Euros. The pair had allegedly met while at a Penthouse party and had been exchanging flirtatious texts for several months.
