Phil Foden has matured into one of England’s most exciting footballers but the 21-year-old has also had to step up off the pitch after becoming a parent in 2019 alongside his girlfriend
Phil Foden has evolved into one of the best young talents in the Premier League since breaking into the Manchester City first team in 2017 under the guidance of Pep Guardiola, and has achieved plenty by the age of 21.
But off the pitch, the midfielder has also shown his maturity since becoming a father at 18-years-old in 2019, alongside his childhood sweetheart and the mother of his children, Rebecca Cooke.
Here is all you need to know about Phil Foden’s girlfriend, including how they met, how long they’ve been together and how many children they have.
Who is Phil Foden’s girlfriend?
Foden is in a relationship with Rebecca Cooke, who is thought to be the same age as the Man City academy graduate after being born in 2000, and like her boyfriend, she is also from Stockport.
Foden’s long-term girlfriend has kept her private life fairly secretive and has opted to not make her social media pages public, while the Man City midfielder himself has also kept photos of her on his accounts to a minimum.
It is unclear as to whether she works or not at this current time.

How long have they been together?
As already mentioned, the couple met during their school days although it isn’t clear as to how long they have officially been together, but the pair do live with each other in a £2million mansion in the affluent Bramhall area of Manchester, as well as Foden’s parents after the 21-year-old wanted to make sure he kept a close-knit family.
Foden bought the house at the age of 18 after making his Premier League breakthrough and becoming the youngest footballer to ever receive the Premier League winner’s medal. The couple have often been seen walking with their first born around the local area, but prefer to keep themselves to themselves over being seen out in public around Manchester and elsewhere.
In 2020, however, Foden and Mason Greenwood were sent home from international duty after letting two Icelandic girls into the England hotel, thus breaching coronavirus protocol.
How many children do they have?
Foden and Cooke have two children together. Their first born, a son named Ronnie, was born in January 2019. Despite their young age, the couple have matured through their parenthood and in April 2021, announced that they were expecting their second child.
It was revealed that this time they would be having a daughter, who was due in late summer or early autumn 2021, before Rebecca was spotted with her for the first time in public in July last year. The girl’s name has not yet been revealed publicly.
