She posted a picture of the couple looking lovingly into each other’s eyes while wearing swimwear and sunglasses on holiday. 

Rebekah has five children, daughter Megan, 16, a son Taylor, 11, with footballer Luke Foster and three children with Jamie: Sofia, six, Finlay, four and 15-month-old Olivia Grace. 

She is also stepmother to Jamie’s daughter from a previous relationship, Ella.

The Dancing on Ice star met Jamie while working as a nightclub promoter at Viper in Sheffield in 2014. 

She helped organise his birthday party and three months later she fell pregnant with their daughter Sofia.

Becky and Jamie went on to wed at a lavish ceremony at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire in 2016.

Their wedding anniversary celebration comes after month Rebekah recently revealed she needed therapy to cope with online abuse as her bitter Wagatha Christie libel battle with Coleen Rooney continues.

Rebekah launched her high-stakes High Court libel action after Coleen, 34, accused her in an October 2019 Instagram post of being the source of leaks to the media on stories about her.

The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star was heavily pregnant with her fifth child Olivia when the Wagatha Christie story broke, prompting a slew of online abuse.

Court documents reveal the abuse made her feel suicidal, prompting three trips to hospital due to her anxiety, and sparking concerns about either going into early labour or losing her baby due to the stress.

In an interview with The Sun on Sunday, Rebekah said that she was forced to seek out therapy as she dealt with death threats following Coleen’s accusation.

She said: ‘I have had therapy in the last couple of years… because it was something like I had never experienced before.’

Rebekah, who is married to Leicester City striker Jamie, 39, called out people on social media who write ‘Be Kind’ in their profile and still write nasty comments online.

‘The whole ‘be kind’ thing is just a trend because they still slag people off as much as they want,’ she said. ‘People are such delusional idiots sometimes.’

She continued: ‘It’s very frustrating, but I’ve learned you don’t argue with idiots.’

Rebekah shared a not-so-subtle post about karma after her legal battle with Coleen returned to High Court.

She took to Instagram last month to post a quote, which read: ‘They say people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones… but when Karma is ready she will throw a bowling ball at your head.’

The reality star placed the 100 emoji alongside the powerful quote, which seemed to be a thinly-veiled dig at Coleen, who is married to football icon Wayne Rooney.
