Una Healy and Ben Foden are making the most of their anniversary celebrations with a trip to Sardinia.

The Saturdays singer (34) and English rugby player (30) wed in her native Tipperary in 2012 and jetted to the Mediterranean island for a parents only holiday to mark the milestone.

The couple have two children Aoife (four) and Tadhg (two) together, but chose to jet off just the two of them to soak up some sunshine.

And they're not holding back when it comes to their spending as they have checked into the five star hotel Valle dell’Erica Thalasso & SPA Resort where prices start at €520 per room for one night.

Ben is clearly proud of his wife, a judge on The Voice of Ireland, as he affectionately described her as the "next Bond girl" to caption an image of her posing on the beach.

"Good to finally get away with this one @unahealy especially after the crazy couple of weeks we've had! First time to Sardinia beautiful place," he wrote to accompany another loved-up picture with his wife.

The pair are fresh from Ben's younger brother's recent wedding where Una acted as a bridesmaid and Aoife as a flowergirl.

Una recently elaborated on her decision to return to her maiden name earlier this year, prompting speculation an impending split.

"Healy just suits my music better, which might sound a bit weird," she said.

"Foden suits Ben and rugby so well, and it's my real name and on my bank details and anything to do with the kids, but it doesn't suit Una Healy the singer. I just felt I needed my own identity and my own thing, but it was inevitable that the media were going to think the worst when I said I was going back to Healy."

They first met in 2008 after Ben arranged a date with the songstress through their agents after he said he was a fan of "the Irish one" in The Saturdays.

"He said it wasn't great, but then he started talking about The Saturdays and said he loved 'the Irish one,'" she explained. "His management went behind his back and called our label and asked for my number to give to Ben.

"My PR told me he wanted to go on a date with me, but I didn't know much about rugby and had never heard of him. I Googled him and liked the look of him, so I said 'Why not?'"
