Harry Kane wife Kate Goodland

1 - Harry Kane wife Kate Goodland

Kate Goodland is the former long-term girlfriend and now wife of England soccer captain and super striker Harry Kane. Kane, a former player for Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League, moved to Germany in 2023 to join Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich. 

With Kane providing an outstanding performance in the first season for his new club and leading his country at the summer’s Euro 2024 Championship, his wife Kate has also been caught in the public eye a lot, as she is regularly seen watching her talented husband. 

Harry Kane club career

Soccer star Harry Kane is not only one of England’s all-time great goalscorers, he is highly regarded as one of the best finishers in the world too. Kane’s excellence means that whenever he steps onto the pitch, plenty of people back him in goalscorer betting markets. With sportsbooks and casinos sitting side by side online at AskGamblers, many fans will dabble in both. It isn’t surprising he generates excitement on and off the pitch, usually having short odds to be a top goalscorer in any game or event. Coming off the back of a season in the Bundesliga scoring 36 in 32 games, that’s hardly surprising.

Born in 1993 in London, England, Harry Kane became part of Tottenham’s youth line-up in 2004. He stayed on the club’s books and turned professional in 2009 but was initially sent out on loan to various clubs around England to gain experience. 

It was in 2011 that Kane made his first appearance for his parent club Tottenham during a UEFA Europa League match. His Premier League debut was finally made at the start of the 2012/13 season, with a late appearance as a promising 19-year-old substitute. The forward then got his first start in the English Premier League in 2014, scoring in a resounding victory over Sunderland. 

Harry Kane accolades

After breaking into the senior squad, the rest, as the saying goes, is history. Kane won the 2014/15 PFA Young Player of the Year and was also awarded a new long-term contract by Spurs. In the 2015/16 season, Kane finished as the top scorer in the league, one of three Premier League Golden Boot awards he would win during his time at Tottenham.

Harry Kane international career

As one of England’s all-time elite strikers, Kane was handed his first international cap for his country in 2015, scoring just 80 seconds after coming on as a substitute. His first major international tournament was the 2016 European Championships, but Kane went goalless as England suffered a disastrous Round of 16 loss to Iceland. 

Kane first wore the captain’s armband for his country in the summer of 2017 during a World Cup qualification match, a game in which he scored. A year later, he led his country and the line for England at the 2018 World Cup, scoring six goals in six games to win the prestigious Golden Boot as the competition’s top goalscorer.

Kane became England’s all-time top goalscorer after scoring against Italy in 2024, surpassing the previous record of 59 goals held by former Manchester United player Wayne Rooney, who is married to Coleen.

How Harry and Kate met

In 2017, the former Tottenham Hotspur forward announced that he was dating Kate Goodland. However, their history goes back much further, as they were childhood sweethearts in a fantastic story of relationship longevity. 

The two were friends at Chingford Foundation School in London, which was the same school that another England legend, Sir David Beckham, attended when he was a kid. There is a famous picture of Harry and Kate as young kids, posing with David Beckham when Becks launched his Football Academy in London in 2005.

Nearly 15 years after that photograph was taken, the 23-year-old Kane tied the knot with Kate at a wedding ceremony held in Barbados. In a social media post that melted the hearts of romantics, Kane posted “Finally got to marry my Best Friend! I love you @KateGoodlandx” after the nuptials. 

So, from those early beginnings through his career with Tottenham, England and Bayern Munich, Kate has been with Harry every step of the way.

Kate Goodland trained and worked as a professional fitness trainer, and with a big following on the social media platform Instagram, she has shared fitness tips there. She is a mother of four and regularly attends matches involving her famous husband.

She also supports his charity, the Harry Kane Foundation, which promotes mental health. Kate even partnered with Loquet London, a jewelry brand, to launch a collection with the proceeds going towards the charity.

Kate was born in January 1993 and is about six months older than her husband, who celebrates his birthday in July. Kate reached more than 295k followers on Instagram with fewer than 500 posts.

Harry Kane children

Harry and Kate’s first child was a daughter named Ivy who was born in 2017, with a second daughter, Vivienne, joining the family the following year. The couple’s third child and first son Louis was born in 2020 and a second son followed for the couple in 2023, named Henry Edward. 

Henry was born just two days after dad Harry had scored his first goal for Bayern Munich, following his high-profile move to the German Bundesliga club on a free transfer. 

Following the family’s move to Germany, where they live in an area dubbed the “Bavarian Beverly Hills”, Kate has been documenting their move abroad on Instagram (@katekanex), posting momentous photographs such as the husband and wife posing on the pitch at Bayern, with Kate heavily pregnant at the time.

At the 2024 European Championships, the three oldest Kane children were pictured at the side of the pitch, being greeted by their dad during his warm-up ahead of a match. Ivy, Vivienne and Louis Kane all wore an England shirt with “Daddy 9” on the back. The Kane family obscured the faces of their children to maintain their privacy on social media.

Kane was born to Patrick and Kim Kane, and he has one older brother, Charlie. Due to Irish ancestry on his father’s side, Kane was eligible to play for the Republic of Ireland. However, being born in London, Harry chose to pursue a career for the Three Lions, which worked out well for him, given his superb international goal-scoring record.
