Kate Ferdinand confesses she found it ‘difficult’ to watch Rio’s first documentary as a grieving dad
Kate Ferdinand has confessed she found it 'difficult' to watch her husband Rio's first documentary.
Talking on Giovanna Fletcher's podcast, Happy Mum, Happy Baby, the 28 year old explained that she was with the professional footballer when Rio Ferdinand: Becoming Mum and Dad first aired in March 2017.
Kate, who is step-mum to 42 year old Rio’s three children, Tate, Lorenz and Tia, told the author: "He filmed it before I met him, but it come out when I was with him, so that was really difficult for me." [sic]

When asked how she felt about it at the time and how it impacted her relationship with him, Kate responded: "I was a bit confused if I'm honest, because I was in the honeymoon period with Rio and I knew he'd filmed this documentary like the year before.
"But I didn't really know too much about it and I found it really difficult to watch and it was hard."
Kate, who recently broke down in tears as she read out a note she put at Rio's late wife's Rebecca's grave, added: "The man you're in love with is crying and he's grieving.
"And I don't think when it come out I'd met the children or I was with the children properly then so it was like: 'Wow, this is a lot.'"
It comes as Kate recently shared her plans to have a baby with Rio, hoping a new arrival will "bring [them] all together".
The TOWIE star, whose father-in-law Julian recently admitted he initially had reservations about her, opened up on the couple’s hopes to expand their brood some day.
She told 35 year old Giovanna: "I said to Rio say if we have a baby when they get to five I’m going to be great.
“I know what I’m doing but that baby stage I don’t know. The kids talk about having a baby all the time. I said ‘Rio I’ve never changed a nappy, I’ve never had children!’”
She continued: “I think [having a baby] will bring us all together, tighter, closer as a knit. It’s weird because when we’re in the house and it’s us five, I feel like their mum and I know I’m not their mum and we all feel the same. I just feel like they’re my children. It’s a normal family.

“I always thought I wanted a big family but I’d never thought think I’d get it this way. It’s just mad when I think about it.
"I thought I’d have a big family but with three step kids and them losing their mum I never saw it being this way.”
