Smitten Rio puckered up for a kiss in the sweet snap, as Kate called him “baby”.
The happy couple – who recently welcomed son Cree – made sure they made time to spend some quality time together without their kids.
New mum Kate, who gave birth in December, bravely admitted that she “doesn’t love her post-baby body”.
The 29-year-old – who is also step-mum to Rio’s three kids with his late wife – also admitted crying every day for five weeks after a traumatic post-birth battle with her body.

After a pretty smooth pregnancy, Kate, 29, suffered a gruelling birth that culminated in an emergency caesarean.
The experience left her devastated because the recovery was painful and slow – for weeks she was effectively bed-ridden and unable to perform the simplest of tasks.
Although husband Rio, 42, was a pillar of support, Kate felt frustrated and desperately sad that she couldn’t pick up Cree from his crib herself, finding it difficult even to change his nappies.
After a successful recovery, Kate has gone on to post candid selfies of life as a mother – telling The Sun’s Fabulous magazine: “I was really nervous about posting that picture, but something in me just felt like I had to.

“I was scrolling on social media and seeing lots of women having babies and looking amazing and seeming really happy, and I was just thinking: ‘I don’t feel like that, I feel overwhelmed’. I loved him so much, but I was struggling.
“My body was bruised, I couldn’t walk up and down the stairs and I just thought: ‘Surely other people must be going through this too?’ I felt very strongly that I wanted to be a voice of normality.
“I’m so glad I did it, because the response actually made me feel so much better.
“There were so many people who could relate to it and it normalised what I was going through. I didn’t feel so alone.”
