Who Was He Married to? 

Steven was married to a professional singer Delsi-May. Her stage name is Ruby Washington. Ruby has been singing since 1982

She revealed in an interview that she got an opportunity to record at a young age. 

While signing a recording contract, they took a photograph of her and when they returned they had “Ruby Washington” on them. 

She wanted to change her name back to her original name but people had already started knowing her as Ruby Washington.

Then they explained to her that that was the one they wanted her to become. 

They have four children together Oliver, Richie, Dale, and Jordan Watkins. Dale was the eldest son of Steven and Ruby.

Separated while Ollie was young

Sadly, Steven and Ruby couldn't save their marriage and divorced when Ollie was young.

From then Ruby took care of all of their children alone. 

Being a single mother, she used to take her four children to her concerts. 

During her interview with The Times, she said that she used to drive her son, Ollie, to his training and rush back to be on the stage as a singer. 

His elder son’s important role in Ollie's career

Dale was a huge football lover and used to play football at an early age. Unfortunately, he broke his leg when he was around 17 years old. 

He again broke his same leg about 1 and a half years later on the same pitch. 

His mother explained that his leg could be amputated. Dale's career came to an end after that. 

Although Dale's dream of playing football professionally came to a tragic end, he provided guidance to his baby brother which played a major role in his success.

Ollie has been a big fan of Arsenal since Childhood

Ollie was born on December 30, 1995, at Torbay Hospital in Torquay, Devon. He grew up in Newton Abbot with his siblings. 

He went to South Dartmoor Community College in Ashburton. Since childhood, Ollie has been a big fan of the Arsenal club.

At his young Ollie looked up to Thierry Henry as his idol. He wanted to play like him by taking on the role of a defender and creating opportunities. 

Ollie used to see himself as a "number 10" player. At the start of his career, he used to be a skilled winger. 

Later, while playing at Brentford during the 2019-2020 season, he transitioned himself into a more traditional center-forward role.
