England star Harry Maguire married his long-term partner Fern Hawkins in a surprise ceremony on Thursday, May 12.
The Manchester United captain reportedly left training shortly after midday and headed straight to Crewe Registry Office to meet his fiancée and tie the knot.
The pair are said to have wanted a very low-key wedding and kept the details of their private ceremony a secret from everyone apart from a small number of close friends and family members.
Only a few guests attended and they were reportedly only informed of the wedding venue on Thursday morning via text message.
While their official ceremony was low key, it’s believed that the loved-up couple will head to France this summer to take their marriage vows again at a romantic chateau.
In celebration of their marriage, we’ve taken a look back at the pair’s sweet relationship.
Who is Harry Maguire’s wife?
Harry Maguire’s new wife is Fern Hawkins. She has a Bachelor’s degree in science and physiotherapy, graduating in 2017 with a First Class Honours.
Like Harry, 27-year-old Fern is also from Sheffield and has been with Maguire for over a decade.
Hawkins has become a bit of a social media star, with over 80,000 followers on Instagram, where she regularly shares snaps of her and Harry’s two children and adorable pictures of her supporting the England international.
How long has Harry Maguire been with Fern Hawkins?
Childhood sweethearts Harry and Fern met and started dating when they were teenagers.
Fern was just 16 when the pair first got together and Harry was 18 and playing as part of Sheffield United’s youth team.
The teenage lovebird’s romance blossomed and the pair have now been together for over 10 years.
In 2018 they got engaged shortly after Valentine’s day, when Harry popped the question during a romantic getaway to Paris.
Posting to Instagram after the engagement, Fern said: “On Saturday night, Harry made me the happiest girl in the world & asked me to marry him in the most perfect way.”
Does Harry Maguire have children with Fern?
Harry and Fern already have two children together.
A year after their engagement, Maguire revealed on Instagram that Fern had given birth to the couple’s first child, Lillie Saint Maguire, on April 3 2019.
Their daughter was born exactly nine months after England beat Colombia on penalties at the World Cup.
Just 13 months later they welcomed their second daughter Piper Rose in May 2020.
