Jess Redden has denied rumours that she was Covid-19 positive before her wedding to Rob Kearney.

The pharmacy student and the Irish rugby star tied the knot St. Senan's Church in Kilrush, Co. Clare on December 3rd before hosting their wedding reception at the 5-star Trump International Hotel in Doonbeg.

She later revealed that she had tested positive for Covid just two days into her honeymoon after finding out that the couple were close contacts.

The unfortunate timing meant that the newlyweds had to self-isolate for most of their trip.

Almost two months after her big day, Jess has been forced to squash rumours that she was infected with the virus during her wedding ceremony.

During an Instagram Q&A this week, a follower asked: “Did you get Covid results before wedding as rumour said?”

The 28-year-old shared a black and white photo from her fairytale wedding and replied: “No we both tested negative and left antigen tests in everyone’s room!

“Had to get a negative PCR to fly which was two days after the wedding and then I started to feel sick a few days in on honeymoon and my test confirmed it was Covid.

“Good ol' rumours – imagine a life without them,” she added.

Jess has previously stated that she “wouldn’t take back” her extravagant wedding weekend despite catching Covid and quarantining for most of her honeymoon.

Taking to Instagram during her exotic holiday, the blushing bride wrote: “I wouldn't take anything back the weekend we had, it was everything I've ever dreamt of and so much more.

“We all have to live through this pandemic and we can and will get through it with setbacks along the way.

“As my dad used to say ‘Que sera sera.’”

Jess and Rob’s wedding was originally planned for June 2021, but they moved it forward to November 2020 after Jess’s father, Brian Redden, was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Sadly, the 70-year-old passed away in September 2020 and did not see his daughter make it down the aisle.
