In the shot Rio and Kate look very relaxed as they chill out beside the pool with some of Rio’s relatives including his sisters.

It marks the first time that the couple – who are thought to have been dating since the beginning of the year – have shared a snap in which they both appear and it’s got fans pretty excited.

‘Finally a snap with kate and rio 👏🏾,’ one follower commented, whilst another wrote: ‘Yes to this 🙌🏻 kept it classy love you both as a couple! @xkatiewright @rioferdy5 💜’

Meanwhile one simply posted: ‘@rioferdy5 @xkatiewright yasssssssss 😍x’

Kate had previously revealed that she was spending time with Rio’s family during the vacation, having shared a photo as she enjoyed lunch with his sisters, but hasn’t yet shared a snap with the man himself.

It comes just over a month after the pair seemed to confirm rumours of their romance when they were photographed enjoying an al fresco dinner date in London.

Then just a few days later they sparked speculation that Kate has met Rio’s children when they both shared almost identical pictures of five pairs of feet modelling Yeezy trainers.

Rio has sons Lorenz, 10, and Tate, 8, and daughter Tia, 6, from his marriage to late wife Rebecca Ellison who tragically passed away in 2015 following a battle with breast cancer.

Since her death Rio has continued to wear his wedding ring and has been seen sporting it during his holiday with Kate.
