She said very few people will experience a love like theirs.

"Very few people on this earth will experience what we did when we met, it was instant and true, overwhelmingly powerful, love that will last forever.


"I’m so grateful for this gift.

"Out of the darkness and into the sun. Three years of you today," she added.

The dad-of-three married Jackie shortly after divorcing singer and presenter Una Healy.

Fans were shocked when he revealed he had tied the knot so soon after divorcing Healy.

In August 2019, Ben married Jackie after just two weeks of dating. Ben's divorce from Una Healy was also finalised on the day he married Jackie.

Speaking about their whirlwind romance, the sportsman said: "When someone like her comes into 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 ex-wife @unahealy who I love even more for her blessing.”

Ben previously claimed he never meant to hurt Una.

During an episode of Celebrity SAS, he said: “I’ll always love Una. She’s my first love and the mother of my kids. I never meant to hurt her the way I did."
