Dressed up for the celebration, Sharon looked glam in a monochrome tweed blazer as she turned to her beau.

As she planted a lipstick tainted peck on his cheek, the couple’s eldest child Jaxon did the same on his dad’s cheek – as he was suited in a white shirt.

Ashley and Sharon confirmed their engagement last year after being together for eight years.

Ashley’s Surrey mansion was broken into by masked raiders in January 2020, with a jury played a chilling 999 call from Sharon, begging for help from police to stop the burglary. 

He and Sharon often keep their long-term relationship under the radar as they enjoy family life together. 

The former footballer’s first marriage, to pop star Cheryl Tweedy, ended just two years after their lavish 2006 wedding ceremony over claims of multiple infidelities with other women.

But opening up about the romance, he previously told The Daily Telegraph: ‘It’s a different me. I’m more of a family man now. You won’t see me in nightclubs anymore, you’ll see me at a park pushing my kids.’
