Smitten: Ben Foden's wife, Jackie Belanoff-Smith, has revealed the couple were flirty from day one, sharing the first texts the pair exchanged a year ago 

Sharing the messages on her Instagram Stories, Jackie explained: 'On this day one year ago this rico suave slid into my dms and never slid out.... and has since made me the happiest person I never even imagined could be possible. I love you more than words can express @ben_foden.' 

The messages start with Ben texting Jackie, writing that their mutual friend had given him her number: 'Hey Jackie, I hope you're expecting this message otherwise it will seem very out of the blue,' Ben texted.

'Our good friend Abra whom I haven't seen for nearly 13 years passed your number on - acting as Cilla Black (British humour there) anyway I thought's I'd say hi and see how your week is going? Ben x'

Jackie responded with: 'Hey Ben, yes abs told me about you haha. You added me on insta right? You're hot. What are u doing this week.'

Playing it cool, Ben wrote back a few hours later, admitting: 'I did have a good Insta stalk too before sending the message very shallow of me. You're hot too hun,' before suggesting they meet up. 

The rugby player, 34, married American entrepreneur Jackie in August just two weeks after they started seriously dating.  

In February, MailOnline exclusively revealed that Ben is expecting a child with Jackie, 19 months after his divorce from Una Healy.

Friends of the Celebrity X Factor star said he is 'absolutely delighted' at becoming a father for the third time.

He already shares two children Aoife, seven, and five-year-old Tadhg, with The Saturdays singer, Una, 38. 

'Ben and Jackie are over the moon,' a source told MailOnline. 'They're so excited to become parents together for the first time and are looking forward to starting their new lives as a family.

'The plan is to move from America back to the UK and raise the baby here – there's lots to organise but they can't wait for their new arrival.' 

Ex-England rugby international Ben first married The Saturdays singer Una in her native Ireland in 2012, after the pair dated for four years.

The couple divorced in July 2018 after six years of marriage when Ben confessed to cheating on Una with PR Becky Milne.

Ben married Jackie on board a luxury yacht in Nantucket, Massachusetts in August despite the pair only knowing each other for a few weeks. 

Ben revealed to MailOnline last year that he plans to move back to the UK with Jackie and buy a house together in Cheshire.   

Writing at the time of his wedding, Ben told his Instagram followers: 'I met a girl who seriously swept me off my feet and in a time of hardship showed me love, a deep devoted love. People will say we are mad or crazy or even fools, as Jackie and I had only been dating seriously for a little over 2 weeks before deciding to get married.'

'But when someone like her comes in to your life, why would I wait? The people who needed to know, such as close family and friends were told before anyone else and they are happy for me including my beautiful X wife who I love even more for her blessing.'
