Harry Kane has been one of the best players of the World Cup, but his long-time girlfriend, Katie Goodland, has had to watch the big games from England. Goodland is not officially Kane’s wife, but the couple got engaged in July 2017 so it is only a matter of time. Goodland is back in England waiting to give birth to their second child. The couple has a daughter named Ivy who is preparing to be a big sister.
Kane and Goodland have known each other since high school, but has had to adjust to life in the spotlight. July has been a big month for Kane and Goodland. Last July, the couple got engaged in the Bahamas. This July, they are expecting to have their second child. England has also made a deep run in the World Cup, so they are hoping to add a World Cup title to the July list.

Harry & Katie Have a July Due Date For Their Second Child
Goodland is set to give birth to the couple’s second child sometime in July 2018. With England’s deep World Cup run, some fans are worried the birth could cause Kane to miss time in the tournament. One of Kane’s teammates, Fabian Delph, was in a similar position, and has missed time to stay with his wife in England. While not speaking directly about Kane, England manager Gareth Southgate was supportive of Delph’s decision, and it would be safe to assume he would support Kane making the same decision as well.
“[Fabian] has my full support,” Southgate explained to Hello Magazine. “He’s buying his wife curries to try and aid the speed of process! But it’s a bit of perspective in life. There’s only one day in your life when your child is born. I know my father’s generation would view that differently, but you have to be there for your family.”
Katie Has Had to Get Used to Being a Public Figure, Even While Walking Their Dogs
Kane’s rise to become an international star has been a slow process. It is something Goodland, who has known Kane since high school, is still getting used to. Goodland has been pushed into the spotlight, something she is not entirely comfortable with.
“We went to school together, so she’s seen my whole career,” Kane explained to Esquire. “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.”
The Couple Has 2 Dogs Named After Tom Brady & Russell Wilson
Kane became a huge NFL fan after watching The Brady 6 documentary about the six quarterbacks drafted ahead of Tom Brady. Like Brady, Kane took a similar path of an underdog, and has become an admirer of his game from afar. Kane has become such a big American football fan that he named their two dogs (Labradors) Brady and Wilson after the quarterbacks. Goodland is not as big of a fan, once posting “Hate Sundays #redzone” on social media, per Sports Illustrated.
“I fell in love with the story,” Kane noted to Sports Illustrated. “What he [Brady] had to do to prove everyone wrong—it was a similar situation to myself.”
As for the dogs, the couple often posts photos out with their furry friends. Aside from dodging the press, Kane has admitted Brady and Wilson are a way for him to unwind.
“If I need to relax, I take them both out for a walk, or I play a round of golf,” Kane told Esquire. “I can’t remember the last time I went to a club. Obviously, everyone’s different, but I love just settling down and having a barbecue with my friends at the house.”
Katie Is Watching the 2018 World Cup From England
The couple already has one daughter, Ivy, and are preparing for their second child. Goodland has had to watch the World Cup back home in England, rather than attending the games in Russia. She posted a photo on Instagram of one of their outdoor watch parties in what looked to be a fancy teepee.
In addition to baby showers, Goodland has been having watch parties to cheer on her future husband. Kane has not made it easy on his fiance as England needed penalty kicks to advance to the quarterfinals as one of the final eight teams. After Kane did his part by nailing one of the penalty kicks, Goodland took to Instagram.
“Still buzzing, so so so so so proud of you @harrykane 🙌🏼❤️🏴 #neverindoubt #footballscominghome,” Goodland posted.
