Rio Ferdinand has shared a rare snap of his eldest son Lorenz as he gives fans a glimpse inside his family’s wholesome trip to Portugal.

45 year old Rio, who recently attended the stunning wedding of PrettyLittleThing founder Umar Kamani, took to Instagram on Wednesday, 29 May where he shared a selection of snaps from the holiday so far as he soaks up the sun alongside his wife Kate Ferdinand as well as his children Lorenz, Tate, Tia, Cree and Shae.

In one of the snaps, 32 year old Kate and 17 year old Lorenz could be seen beaming from ear to ear as they appeared to share a joke together while relaxing on a boat trip. In another, Kate and Rio looked loved up as they posed for a selfie as they headed out to sea.

Captioning the wholesome snaps, doting dad Rio wrote: “Lil Family Getaway” alongside a string of emojis - causing his fans to flood the comments section with messages of support for the family.

“Have a great time,” wrote one. “Looks like a lovely break away,” another added.

Meanwhile a third commented: “Family above everything. Nice to see you taking time out with the family before your busy schedule with the Euros. It goes to show how much you care and value your family.”

The photos come after Lorenz’s step mum Kate gushed over the teen’s amazing skills on the pitch. The youngster is currently following in his father’s footsteps and recently closed off his football season with Brighton FC under 18s with a fancy awards night.

Lorenz joined the Seagulls back in 2022 as the U18s goalkeeper, with Kate attending the Brighton and Hove Albion Players' Awards earlier this month where she saw him scoop a gong for his footballing prowess.

Smiling alongside Lorenz, Kate gushed over the sports star as she expressed her congratulations and wrote: “And just like that the season is over. Such a proud moment watching you get your award last night. It's been a joy to watch you grow and I feel so lucky to be on this journey with you.”

She added: “I love you so much and we are all so happy to have you home for the summer before the hard work continues.” Kate also shared other snaps to her Story to document her family’s support for Lorenz, including one of son Cree, three, wearing a Brighton football kit.
