Leicester City have done the unthinkable and claimed an astonishing Premier League title, with many dubbing it the greatest sports fairytale story ever. No fairytale is complete without a hero at the heart of the story, and at the heart of the Foxes’ season is striker Jamie Vardy. Vardy set Leicester on their way by scoring in a record breaking eleven consecutive matches, and he now has 22 goals with two games remaining. For his breathtaking season, Vardy has been named the FWA Footballer of the Year. However, things were not always quite so glamorous for the 29-year-old.
10. He’s Getting Married in May
As if the last twelve months (and beyond) have not been incredible enough for Jamie Vardy, he is about to top it off by marrying his long term girlfriend, Rebekah Nicholson, who is also the mother of his daughter, Sofia, who was born in December 2014. The pair are set to tie the knot at the end of May, which will be just after Leicester City’s astonishing season comes to a close and he and his teammates will have lifted the Premier League trophy. It was reported that the wedding was rescheduled in case Vardy received an England call up to the Euros, so he will now be a married man once England play their first game of the highly anticipated tournament. Nicholson is frequently sighted with Vardy and appears regularly in the press, and she also regularly takes to Twitter to defend her future husband from any critics.
