The star, who was married to Brian McFadden from 2002 to 2006, Mark Croft from 2007 to 2011, and the late George Kay from 2014 to 2017, is now engaged to Ryan, 32, after they met through a dating app.
The star told New! Magazine: ‘When I married Brian, we got a special blessing from the real Pope that day – a lot of damn good it did!
Kerry added that Ryan marked a departure from her usual whirlwind engagements, saying: ‘Brian proposed after three weeks, I think Mark was five weeks and George was eight weeks.
“It’s different with Ryan. It took him two-and-a-half f*****g years to get started, to get started! This feels like a partnership.’

Recently, Kerry saw a beautiful wedding dress try on, in a teaser for Gok Wan’s Say Yes To The Dress Lancashire.
Kerry was featured in the stunning strapless dress, which shows off a bold split and sparkly embroidery.
After walking around the bridal shop, Kerry explains, ‘I’m here today to find my last wedding dress ever’ as she trawls the rails of gorgeous dresses.
The bride-to-be then slipped into a gorgeous thigh-split dress, which she paired with satin stilettos and sparkly chandelier earrings.
Panting, the star looked at herself in the mirror and said to Gok, “Wow, look at this. I think I look dead sexy.’
It is not clear whether this was her final choice.
Kerry and Ryan got engaged last August after he asked her kids for permission to ask the question.

The Tide Is High hitmaker has five children – Molly Marie, 19, Lilly-Sue, 18, who she shares with Brian, Heidi Elizabeth, 14, Maxwell Mark, 13, who she shares with Mark, and Dylan-Jorge Rose Kay, seven, which she shared with the late George.
It comes as Kerry recently spoke candidly about her decision to remarry, in an interview with Loose Women.
The Celebrity Big Brother roommate candidly told the panel, “I went online and thought, ‘I wouldn’t mind a free meal,’ and met Ryan and it made me realize I deserve to be loved.”
“I never thought, ‘When I grow up, I want to get married four times and have five children from three different fathers, and that the children have different surnames.’
She went on to explain that sometimes it can be hard for her to get excited about the big day because she wants the marriage rather than the marriage itself.
Children: Kerry is mother to Molly, 19, Lilly-Sue, 18, with ex-husband Brian McFadden, Heidi, 13, Maxwell, 12, with ex Mark Croft, 49, and Dylan-Jorge, six, whose father is George Kay tragically passed away in 2019 (pictured in 2020)
In a clip shown from her recent stint on TLC’s Say Yes To The Dress, Kerry was heard saying, “I feel like I shouldn’t be here. Almost as if I shouldn’t be allowed to enjoy the day.’
Speaking again to Stacey Solomon, 31, Nadia Sawalha, 56, Kaye Adams, 58, and Jane Moore, 59, Kerry said: ‘At one point Ryan asked me if I really wanted to get married. I don’t want a wedding, I want a wedding.’
“I’ve been with Ryan for three years and by this point I would normally be divorced so I must be doing something right,” she joked.
This time I was single for two years, I had to learn to love myself before I could love anyone else. I’m happy. Ryan corrects it. That is the difference.’
Unlike her previous marriages, the star is in no rush to tie the knot and will “jump on a plane” when the time comes, she said.
In February, Kerry revealed to MailOnline that she plans to flee to Las Vegas to marry her fiancé, and that only her five children are present.
