Marriage life wasn't always a better choice for Rebekah, having faced a broken marriage before. But after Jamie entered her life, everything started to fall into place.
The 36-year-old first met Jamie in 2014 while working as a party planner and ironically, she planned his birthday. The English footballer at first glance, decided to ask her out.
Though initially, it was rather a conundrum for him as she hesitated when he asked if she'll go out with him. After a while, she did accept his proposal and the couple started dating.
Soon the dating cycle turned into a long-term relationship and eventually marriage. The couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in 2016. The ceremony itself was held in Peckforton Castle in Chesire.
But the sad part was Jamie's parents weren't present at the wedding. It was later revealed that his parents were against his decision of marrying Rebekah. Even Rebekah's mother didn't attend the wedding because she didn't want any public attention towards her.
Their daughter, Sofiya was the bridesmaid at the wedding. Rebekah, though, wanted Jamie's daughter from his previous affair, Ella to become one of the bridesmaids but his ex-girlfriend, Emma Daggett refused to let her join the wedding.

Rebekah Vardy was previously married to Electrician, Mark Godden. She was in a marital relationship with him, ten years before she met her current match. The marriage didn't last long and they called it quits after a mere 6-months worth of relationship.
She then got involved in multiple relationships and from one of this relationship, she became the mother of the daughter, Megan. The identity of Megan's father is still at large.
Her second child, Taylor came from her relationship with the football player, Luke Foster.
Rebekah had a tough time while growing up. Her parents divorced when she was 11 which led to her mother marrying another man. During her teenage years, she developed a rebellious attitude which led to a lot of trouble in her high school.
In an interview, she recently admitted to being sexually abused by one of the family friends when she was 13. She never mentioned the name of the culprit.
