Rebekah's mother, Allison, divorced her husband while she was still a kid. Her mom went on to marry a radio presenter named Ian Nicolson. Rebekah subsequently moved to Witney, Oxfordshire with her mom and stepdad.
Speaking on the talk show Loose Women, Vardy opened up about her childhood. The model revealed she was sexually molested as a child from a family friend which began when she was merely 11 years old. Her life was a living nightmare as a troubled child.
To make matters worse, she was considered a 'black sheep' by most of her family. She was, in fact, kicked out of the house at 16 because of her constant fights as well as her drinking problem. Consequently, she began searching for jobs while staying at a friend's house.

When she was 18, Rebekah carried high hopes of becoming a model. To pursue this dream, she began working as a barmaid in Witney. However, destiny had other plans for her and she ended up marrying Mark Godden.
Rebekah and Mark exchanged vows in 2001 in Mexico. Following 2 years of troublesome marriage, the couple decided to part ways in 2003. At the time Rebecca was rumored to have had an affair with singer Peter Andre which turned out to be the final nail in the coffin of their relationship.

Back in 2006, Rebekah gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Megan. There are no whereabouts of the father in the public media, while Rebekah prefers to keep this matter out of the spotlight as much as possible.
Sometime later, the reality star got close to a semi-pro footballer named Luke Foster. The couple dated for six years before getting engaged. They even share a son named Taylor. However, just like her previous relationships, it inevitably ended.
In November 2017, the former model revealed to The Sun she 'survived hell with cheating, car killing ex-husband'. She was talking about her second husband Steve Clarke who she met sometime in 2005. Clarke was her boss at a timeshare company. Rebekah married Steve while she was pregnant with her first child Megan from another man.

In January 2017, the duo welcomed their second child, a son named Finley Jaiden Vardy. Meanwhile, Jamie shares a daughter named Ella Vardy from his previous marriage with Emma Daggett. The entire family lives together along with the four children.
The former model's life changed for the better after meeting Vardy

The reality star's younger years weren't kind to her as she faced a troubled childhood. Despite this, she remained unfazed and set her mind to pursue a career in modeling. However, she was not fortunate enough to land much success in this field.
Luckily for Rebekah, her failures soon took a turn for the better after she bumped into Jamie. Following her marriage to the English striker, she began a brand new career as an event manager, running promotions across England. Moreover, she now serves as the director of her husband's academy set-up that helps non-league players receive coaching and guidance.
