Dawn Ward Opens Up About Her Interior Design Career, Family Life And The Real Housewives Of Cheshire!

In a recent interview, Dawn Ward opened up about her family life, her relationship with her husband, Ashley Ward and how they meet, her career and businesses and her experience on being on the Real Housewives of Cheshire.

“I don’t need to prove myself to anyone. You’ll always get people stereotyping you. But actually all the WAGs are quite hot and cool, so at my age I’m pretty pleased,” Dawn tells the Mirror.

“I’ve always wanted to make my own money. As a little girl, I’d look at ­magazines and think, ‘I want that – I want to be successful and have nice things.’ As an only child I was very independent – I believe you can always get what you want if you have your health and work hard enough.”

“I’ve always worked, I’ve always been entrepreneurial. I don’t want to rely on anyone, ever. Fortunately I met my soul mate – we’ve been together 26 years, and he’s the love of my life. But I don’t want to think 10 years down the line, ‘How much can I get from him?’ From the day we met, we’ve had a 50:50 relationship and split absolutely everything.”

The mother-of-four also talks about being mistaken for Elizabeth Hurley, “she’s a good-looking woman – I take that as a compliment.,” says Dawn.

Even though Ward's interior career is on high demand, the mother-of-four says that she doesn't do it for the money - she just wants to raise her brand’s profile and secure the future for her four daughters.

 “It’s been absolutely fantastic. You hear horror stories about editing and I was worried about my business and my brand, something I’ve been building for years, says Ward about being on Real Housewives of Cheshire. “But apart from a handful of negative comments, I’ve been overwhelmed by the support.”

Despite working 14 hours a day,  Ward says she still insists on cooking dinner at night. But she has her limits.

“I don’t peel potatoes or clean dishes. I also don’t really do walking unless I have to.”

But it wasn’t always like this. When she was 12 years old, Dawn says she worked on a fruit and veg stall every weekend, getting out of bed at 4am and getting home at 10.30pm.

The ITVBe reality star opens up how she meet her husband. Dawn says she met Ashley in a pub car park in Bolton she was a model earning more than him and didn’t even know he was a footballer.

“He was a Man City apprentice on £80 a week,” she recalls. “I thought he was fit, we had a bit of a chat, and then I wanted to make an old boyfriend jealous so I went on a date with Ashley. Five years later he proposed in the same pub car park.”

“If I lost everything tomorrow, I’ve got a great family and ultimately they mean everything. I’d get out of bed and go and make it all again somehow.”

“You’re born with no money, you leave with no money, she continued. “For me, it’s what you do when you’re here that counts. I lead an amazing lifestyle, and I know I’m really lucky, but I don’t ever take it for granted.”
