Ben Foden Shirtless, Underwear, Wife, Try Star Boyband

Ben Foden Shirtless and Rugby Update. So, how’s our hunky rugby player these days? Apparently, he is no longer with Northampton Saints but is currently playing stateside with Rugby United New York (RUNY).

He signed with RUNY in 2018 but his playing days with the team has been hampered by the corona virus pandemic which, as you very well know, put a stop to sports activities all over the world. We say this because, sadly, he mentioned last year that he will be retiring after the 2021 season which means no more professional rugby for our hunky English man.

Outside of rugby, Ben joined forces two years ago with fellow rugby players Levi Davis and Thom Evans to compete as the Try Star boyband in the celebrity version of X-Factor. The singing trio were actually surprisingly good and they made it all the way to the semifinals. Overall, they landed in fifth place which is a pretty good placement considering that they went up against 14 other acts. Anyhoo, here are photos of Ben, Thom, and Davi as Try Star singers:

On the relationship front, Ben and Una Healy (who we last reported back in 2014 as his wife) parted ways and he is now married to wife Jackie Foden (nee Smith). The Daily Mail reports that they got hitched in 2019 but it was a private ceremony.

Here’s a photo of Ben and Jackie which we grabbed from the former’s Instagram page (follow him @ben_foden):

Oh, he posted this heartfelt message too along with the above photo: “This last year has been by far my toughest and most turbulent for a number of reasons that many of you I’m sure are aware of, in some way or another. The world has a funny way of working things out, many people think I’m a bad person – as I’m sure they’ll be many nasty comments left under this post by keyboard warriors a plenty. But I met a girl who seriously swept me off my feet and in a time of hardship showed me love, a deep devoted love. People will say we are mad or crazy or even fools, as @snackyjax and I had only been dating seriously for a little over 2 weeks before deciding to get married. But when someone like her comes in to your life, why would I wait? 🤷🏻‍♂️ The people who needed to know, such as close family and friends were told before anyone else and they are happy for me including my beautiful X wife.”

Ben Foden Shirtless and Speedo Photos. You did not think we will be updating this post without including some shirtless pics of our favorite rugby player, did you. Did you know that he and RUNY teammate Connor Wallace Sims went biking in their Budgy Smugglers which, if you’ve been reading our posts on Men in Speedos, is an Australian swimwear brand name but the same time it is what the Aussies call briefs-style Speedos.

Ben Foden Underwear Photos (28 September 2014). Let’s add Northampton Saints rugby player Ben Foden to our group of celebrities in Versace outfits. Doesn’t he look awesome in his Versace boxer briefs.

Its worth noting though that our rugby jock is not a one-underwear-brand man because he’s also wearing other brands in the next photos. For instance, here’s Ben wearing Diesel underwear.  We are not fans of low waist sagging jeans but we make exceptions to guys like Ben. Hehe.


Do we see a Dolce and Gabbana label in our rugby hunk’s underwear below?
