Rio Ferdinand and his son Cree wear matching tracksuits as he shares first pic with newborn


RIO Ferdinand and his son Cree cosied up for their first picture together - in matching beige tracksuits.

The 42-year-old football hero and his wife Kate, 29, welcomed their first baby together last month.

He shared the snap on Instagram, writing: "Father & Son matching up day!! 1st of many 🙄. #fatherandson."

The pair looked very cosy with in a big comfy chair, with Rio sporting a pair of slippers bearing his inititals.

Their sprawling garden with football pitch and goals could be seen through the floor-to-ceiling windows behind them.

In common with many of the pictures the couple share of their children, Cree's face was not included in the shot.

Wife Kate has also posed with the child, last month showing followers the bruises she's picked up during the "traumatic" birth.

Posting a picture of her holding Cree, she wrote: "I wanted to share this with you. This is me … and let me add this is a much better version of me than the last 10 days.

"After having an emergency c section, and a bit of a traumatic birth I’ve been completely wiped out."

Kate is also step-mum to Rio's children Lorenz, 14, Tate, 12, and Tia, nine, who the sports star shared with his late wife Rebecca, who died of breast cancer in 2015.
