Rebekah Vardy says she had the ‘true Vardy resting b***h face’ on her 40th birthday in February as she celebrated the milestone in the midst of the Wagatha Christie trial.
The WAG – who is married to Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, 35 – previously sued Coleen Rooney, 36, for libel after she accused Rebekah of leaking ‘false stories’ to the media, with a judge ruling against Rebekah at the High Court last month.
And mother-of-five Rebekah is now planning a celebration to mark her birthday after the end of the trial, insisting: ‘The Vardys love a party!’
Speaking of her 40th birthday celebrations which took place in February as the proceedings rumbled on, Rebekah told The Sun: ‘It was terrible, I was so miserable. I think I really had the true Vardy resting b***h face on my 40th.
‘Jamie, bless him, was like ‘we’re having a party’. I was like, ‘I hate surprises’. I’m the world’s worst person for surprises, they make me uncomfortable.’
She said her husband had organised a dinner with all of her close friends and their kids and said although she enjoyed it, she hopes to throw another party.
‘We might throw a big party soon though,’ she added.
Former England player Jamie invited Rebekah’s friends and family to her birthday celebration at lavish country house hotel and sporting estate Stapleford Park close to their Lincolnshire mansion.
She said she was unable to enjoy the event at the time as she prepared to go to the High Court as the trial neared its end.
Last week, Rebekah told how she believes she is suffering from PTSD after the Wagatha Christie trial.
The mother-of-five previously sued Coleen Rooney for libel after she accused her of leaking ‘false stories’ to the media in an explosive social media post, but after a judge ruled against Rebekah last month, she admitted the toll it has taken on her mental health.
Explaining that she was hospitalised twice over the ordeal, Rebekah told The Sun: ‘I was having serious panic attacks. I had kidney stones which were brought on by stress, and I just felt like my life was falling apart. Physically, emotionally and mentally it was exhausting.
‘It was draining. I had to go to hospital a couple of times because they were really worried about my mental wellbeing.
‘And since the court case, I think I’m probably suffering with PTSD — I feel physically sick when I talk about the trial and what happened, and I have nightmares.
‘I haven’t gone to get a diagnosis yet but I do know I probably need some more therapy. It’s been a horrible time.’
Rebekah – who is married to soccer star Jamie Vardy – also claimed she had suicidal thoughts after Coleen accused her of leaking stories back in 2019.
She said she felt her lowest point was when she was in Dubai trying to get a flight home early from a holiday.
Rebekah admitted she was dreading what she could return home to, saying she was expecting ‘spiteful hatred everywhere’.
However, a defiant Rebekah insisted she does not regret taking the case against Coleen, despite a judge ruling against her.
Rebekah also told how her husband Jamie received death threats amid her Wagatha Christie trial.
The mother-of-five revealed her professional footballer husband and kids have been subjected to ‘vicious, disgusting hatred’.
Police have made three arrests and are looking into the communications.
Rebekah told The Sun: ‘It doesn’t matter what people’s opinions are about me, they shouldn’t be attacking my husband or children. I draw the line when you subject them to vicious, disgusting hatred, and abuse my husband.
‘This has nothing to do with him. It was these threats that got my attention and it is hurtful.’
She added: ‘This isn’t about my family. It’s not their battle, and it’s not fair they should be subjected to horrific abuse. I just want it to stop.’
Rebekah has praised Leicester City forward Jamie – who she married in 2016 – for being ‘so resilient’ in the wake of the online abuse he has received.
