Kate Ferdinand breaks silence on pregnancy and reveals how she and Rio told their children on Christmas Eve | The Sun

KATE Ferdinand has revealed how she and husband Rio told their children that they are expecting another child.

The 31-year-old announced the happy news with fans yesterday.

But her children have known about their younger sibling for quite some time.

Kate is already mum to their son Cree, two, who she welcomed into the world in December 2020.

The former Only Way Is Essex star is also step mum to Lorenz, 16, Tate, 14, and Tia, 11 – children from Rio's previous marriage to Rebecca Ellison.

Kate shared their exciting news during the festive season.

During the most recent episode of her podcast Blended, Kate said: "We told the kids on Christmas Eve [that we were pregnant]. We put it in their Christmas Eve boxes.

"One of them, Lorenz, opened it first and he's old enough to keep quiet, Tia then opened it and screamed, and Tate was like, 'You've opened it before me,' and Cree did not know what was going on.

"Tate sat us down about four weeks before at the dinner table, I think Rio was at the World Cup, and he said, 'I've got an announcement to make. I know you're pregnant.' I was flustered and at this stage I still didn't want to tell the kids just in case.

"So I went, 'You don't know I'm pregnant, because I'm not pregnant.' I feel like from that moment on he's been on me.

"The kids know the symptoms from the last pregnancy. I go off my fish and certain foods.

"Every time I eat a jacket potato, because I'm obsessed with jacket potatoes in pregnancy, I get glances across the room. Anyway, the kids know and we're all really excited.

"I think a lot of you knew because I've been getting a lot of messages saying, 'Definitely pregnant, she's not going to the gym as much,' and you're right. But I didn't want to announce it too early.

"It's a bit of a worry with what happened last time with the miscarriage."

Yesterday Kate showed off her baby bump in a sweet video posted to Instagram.

She could be seen walking away from the camera before turning, and pulling her coat away to reveal her bump.

Looking chic, Kate wore a long black dress, which she paired with knee-high boots and a designer bag over her shoulder.

"We've been praying for you," Kate captioned the post.

Kate used a number of ways to hide her pregnancy, including savvy social media poses and oversized clothes.
