In 2018, Natalie revealed on Twitter that her husband had been converting his children away from the country of their birth, with the help of his family.
She tweeted: “This is what happens when you leave your kids for three weeks. While his English wife has been away, my Colombian husband and his family have ensured my children are solely supporting Colombia, despite being born in and living in England. Tuesday will be interesting.”
While her husband said: “I asked my daughter ‘Do you support Colombia even with mummy being at the World Cup?’ and she said ‘Yeah, I’ve got the shirt, the badge on my shirt. Why not? There’s no question?’ So my work is done.”
However, Natalie insisted she could win her children’s allegiance back to England by returning from Russia with signed shirts.
She said: “Maybe I’ll see if some of the England team can sign them for the kids and try and get them that way. See, I can do that, you can’t do that!”
