She and Her Husband Were Childhood Sweethearts
Katie Goodland met her future husband Harry Kane as a child back when the two were studying at Chingford Foundation School in the London Borough of Waltham Forest, which English football legend David Beckham also attended. In fact, a picture of the two tweens from 2005, flanking Beckham, went viral on the internet after the two married over a decade later. However, while they knew each other, they did not actually start dating until 2011. Kane’s first Instagram post from August 2013 featured Katie and he continued to share pictures together with her from vacations and various events. He first told the media about Katie in an interview in 2015 in which he stated, “We went to school together, so she’s seen my whole career. Of course, she’s finding it a little crazy. I think she’s even been in the papers a couple of times taking the dogs out.” By the time, they were living together and he mentioned that they were looking forward to start a family.

On Instagram, he shared a picture of him, on his knees, proposing to her, and captioned it, “She said YES!” Katie also shared a couple pictures the same day on her own Instagram to announce the same. Nearly two years later, on June 21, 2019, Kane shared a picture of him planting a kiss on Katie’s forehead, both in their wedding dresses, and exclaimed, “Finally got to marry my Best Friend! I love you”. Katie shared the news on her Instagram the next day with a black-and-white picture of them from their wedding event with the caption “Mr & Mrs Kane”. Later on July 19, 2019, both of them celebrated one month anniversary of their wedding by sharing wedding pictures on Instagram. Katie also penned an emotional note on her post declaring that she married her “soul mate” a month ago and thanked her family and friends for the “magical” weekend.

She Defended Opting for Hypnobirthing
Katie Goodland, who opted for hypnobirthing for all her three children, often mentioned her experience while announcing the arrival of her children to encourage others to do the same. Following the birth of Ivy, she revealed that as a “first time mum”, she was “very scared about labour and was recommended to try hypnobirthing”. She further revealed that she and her husband completed the course throughout her pregnancy, which helped her be “calm, relaxed, confident and in control of my body” during delivery. She ended the post saying, “I would highly recommend hypnobirthing to any mummy’s to be!” However, after the birth of Vivienne, when Harry Kane congratulated Katie “for having the most amazing water birth with no pain relief at all”, it spawned some negative articles on the internet, prompting her to pen a two-part explanation on her Instagram to “clear a few things up about hypnobirthing”. She blamed the media and other women for portraying “labour as a scary and painful experience”, which made her look for alternatives in the first place. Revealing that she “didn’t get hypnotised” for the process, she mentioned that hypnobirthing “includes breathing techniques and visualisations” to teach women to be in control of their bodies. She mentioned that she was “embarrassed to say I had a positive experience with no pain relief” after the birth of Ivy, but after Vivienne was born, she was determined to “spread the word about hypnobirthing and how amazing it is!”
