How long has Jordan Henderson been dating Rebecca Burnett?

Jordan Henderson and Rebecca Burnett met when they were teenagers, whilst Henderson was playing for Sunderland’s youth team.

They got married in 2014 with just close friends and family at the lavish ceremony, and that same year they welcomed their first child, a daughter named Elexa.

They later welcomed daughter Alba in 2015, and son Myles in February 2020.

In an interview, the Liverpool captain admitted his young children are already following in his footsteps.

Two-year-old Myles is “kicking the ball around” and even aiming at the net, whilst eight-year-old Elexa has started collecting Match Attax football cards and going to training.

Talking about Elexa, Henderson said: “My girl has started playing now and enjoys it. I am going to try and get out and watch the Women’s Euros over this summer, because she is asking questions and getting involved in it now.”

The Henderson family live in a sizeable mansion in Cheshire.
