Rugby star Simon Zebo and Elvira Fernandez’s four children took center stage as the couple officially tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Co Kerry.
His four children, seven-year-old Jacob, five-year-old Sofia, two-year-old Noah and three-month-old baby Isabella, were among the 22 guests who attended the romantic event at the five-star Sheen Falls Lodge in Kenmare recently.
Simon told RSVP Magazine they celebrated with music, dancing and laughter, as well as some rapping.
“The day went extremely well. We didn’t have the right weather but we had a great photographer and videographer to capture the day,” he said.
“It’s a very cozy hotel, so the winter weather added to the day in a way, it was magical out there surrounded by the water. We rapped and laughed, sang and danced all night. It was just a fantastic night with all the people closest to us, we had a great time.”
Simon and Elvira first met in Cork when he was 16 and she was a 15 year old Spanish student studying in Ireland.
Speaking about their big day which took place on Saturday 30th July, Simon added: “We had a jam session there after some Guinness and it was amazing.
In April, Simon and Elvira announced the arrival of baby Isabella with a photo of the couple in hospital with their newborn.

He captioned the photo, “Isabella Kate Fernandez Zebo 21/4/22.”
The couple got engaged in Paris in 2019, just four weeks after the birth of their third child, Noah.
Sharing their engagement photo, Simon said: “My childhood sweetheart said yes.
“From the bushes in Blackrock as a 15/16 year old to the bright lights of Paris as a parent to three beautiful children.
“I love you forever, Eve, my queen.”
“It’s going to be a very small and intimate celebration this summer, it’s going to be just our closest family,” Elvira told RSVP Magazine in March.
“We want to make things official this summer and hopefully the world will be more normal next year because I want to have a church wedding and a big party with everyone in Spain next year.
“My parents, my sisters and my brother will be coming to Killarney, just my close family.
“We wanted to do something different than just go to the registry office and sign a piece of paper.”
