Kate and Rio Ferdinand have reportedly splashed out £40,000 on a pair of highly-trained dogs to protect their home.

The celebrity couple, who are expecting their first baby together this year, are said to want extra security at their mansion for their growing family.

The footballer, 41, and the former TOWIE star, 29, reportedly enlisted the help of a special protection dog company, Chaperone K9, to buy the pair of black German shepherds.

A source told The Sun: ‘One is already at their home, and the second will be joining shortly.

‘The couple already have a dog – Kate’s chihuahua – but Rio will enjoy walking these pair a lot more!

‘They are incredible family dogs and will protect them like nothing else – everyone has one these days and who can blame them after everything that’s happened with the other footballers. Rio is taking no chances!’

It comes after a number of high-profile burglaries at footballers’ homes, with Dele Alli and Fabinho among those targeted recently.

Chaperone K9 shared a snap of the new protection dogs on their Instagram, tagging Kate and Rio in the post before they edited it.

They also previously posted a photo of Rio posing with one of the dogs’s alongside Kate’s chihuahua.

Their website states: ‘We are renowned for supplying trained dogs to the very highest quality that offer both security and love to their new families in an often unpredictable society.

We have truly bridged the gap between security dogs and family pets.

‘We run a specialist in house training programme for a minimum of six months with a dedicated team of eight staff who expose the dogs to as many different experiences and environments so that they are fully prepared for all eventualities.’ 

Among their other celebrity clients are footballers Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford, as well as rapper Stormzy.

It comes after Kate revealed exercising has helped her feel like her normal self during her pregnancy in a candid post shared earlier this week.

The Essex beauty posted a snap of herself lifting weights onto her Instagram stories as she detailed her journey.

She wrote: ‘Hey guys, had so many messages about me working out so thought I would give you a little update…

‘I know I’ve been a bit slack on here recently, I’ve been enjoying phone free time. I know I say this all the time, but it is quite mental for me.

‘I’ve found especially whilst being pregnant the gym helps me to feel like ‘me’ as much as I can.

‘Being pregnant for the first time there is a lot of unknowns so it’s nice to have some form of consistency where possible.’
