Charlie Austin Childhood Story – Early Life:
Charles Austin was born on the 5th day of July 1989 in Hungerford, United Kingdom. He came into this world through his mother, Karen Austin and father, Fred Austin.
Austin needed no introduction to football. In fact, he started kicking a ball when he was 4.
When he was seven, he started playing for Wickham Wanderers under 8’s. He then moved to Hungerford Juniors under 9’s and from there got scouted by Reading.
While playing on the non-league circuit, Austin supplemented his football by working as a bricklayer.
Asides from his parents being poor, he wanted to have an independent life. He occasionally shuttled between bricklaying at building sites and playing football.
From 1999 to 2004, Charlie was a trainee at Reading academy, where he developed his skills and proved to be a capable and promising footballer.
A change of Youth Development manager signalled the end of that; it was a case of his face didn’t fit, and he was released.
However, the management of the club did not offer Austin a senior contract. His childhood friend Jamie Vardy also suffered a similar fate. Vardy’s reason for his release was that he was too small.
About Bianca Parker – Charlie Austin’s Wife:
Charlie Austin met his childhood sweetheart, Bianca Parker when he worked as a bricklayer in Swindon. Ideally, she knew him when he was nothing. This is why Charlie built his love life around her.
Austin and his long-term partner Bianca Parker have a daughter, born in August 2012.
Charlie Austin once returned to his roots to wed his fiancée at the prestigious Highclere Castle.
The England man made sure the mother of his child had a memorable wedding.
It certainly went down well with Bianca, who had a daughter, Ava Bella, with the footy star, as she described her wedding day as “the best day of her life”.
Immediately after their wedding, Charlie and Bianca have now headed off on their honeymoon to the Maldives, a tropical nation in the Indian Ocean, South Asia. Below is a lovely photo of the couple as they enjoyed their honeymoon.

Charlie Austin once had a fling with a hairdresser behind his wife’s back. His wife, Bianca, once accused him of cheating in a tweet snapshot below.
But later said it was a game of Monopoly. The truth later came out.
What really happened?
It was later revealed that Austin had a relationship with a fitness fanatic hairdresser Rissy Gannon. She is also a gymnast. That is probably why Austin fell for her.
Austin began his two-month fling with Rissy after meeting her in a pub in Newbury, Berks, where the English man flashed around £5000 notes on her drinks via vodka, cider and cocktails she drank all night.
People who saw them said they kissed. Despite knowing he is married, Charlie isn’t bothered about being seen.
Thou he didn’t give his name and identity to start with until someone asked to take a photo of him. Then somebody came up to Rissy and said that he was a footballer and he was married.
This is Rissy’s friend’s narrative of the event: “Charlie asked her to go home with him, but Rissy is not that kind of girl.
She went home with me that night. She said to Austin, ‘No I’m not coming back’.
Austin replied by shouting at her, ‘I can get any girl I want to’ and Rissy said, ‘Go on then’ …
But by this point, he already had her number. Austin tried ringing Rissy constantly throughout the night.
He messaged her, saying something like, Come and see me tomorrow — I’d really like to see you. Charlie even told Rissy he was planning to leave his 26-year-old wife just to have her.
Rissy’s friend continued:
“He called the next day again, but she already had plans. She had half a dozen WhatsApp messages, and ten missed calls from him.
She didn’t particularly want to see him again. Later, I got surprised when Rissy said she finds Charlie Austin attractive. The next day Rissy agreed, after persistent messages, to see Austin in a nearby pub.
The ex-QPR ace arranged a cab to take her to the Hungerford Arms, where he was waiting. The pair were in the bar for about three hours and were seen doing all sorts of romantic things. This was when their relationship really started.
Charlie’s wife, Bianca, upon hearing the rumours, didn’t just let go. She was pissed off after discovering her man was dating Rissy.
She once tore into her love rival Rissy in a searing “customer review” on Facebook, in which she called her a “dirty slag who can’t leave a married man to his wife”.
Rissy’s pal added: “Recently, she was in Newcastle and got a text from a friend who is best friends with Charlie’s cousin.
Charlie got in contact with his cousin to try and get hold of her to tell her he was obsessed and wanted to see her again and hadn’t been able to get her out of his head.
He was quite smart not to contact her directly.
“Then Rissy got a phone call about a week later asking her to go to Cheltenham. Austin rang from someone else’s phone. She went with her sister.
It was the first time she’d seen him in weeks. Both Charley Austin and Rissy picked up where they left off — he was all over her again and again.”
Charlie Austin Family Facts:

“I wanted to follow my father Alistair, who used to play Centre Back for Great Shefford in his day, so I followed in his footsteps and played for Great Shefford as a kid, and as a centre-half, I then adapted to a strikers role all thanks to his extra soccer lessons.
