“Got myself a gel kit in the first lockdown, I’m actually quite proud of myself slowly getting better.”
Kate gave birth to her first child via an emergency C-section and recently opened up about how she’s grateful for her “family, friends and health” despite struggling in lockdown.
Kate is step-mum to Rio’s children, 14-year-old Lorenz, 12-year-old Tate, and nine-year-old Tia, who he shares with late wife Rebecca.
Last month, Kate admitted she had broken down in tears after struggling to deal with little Cree‘s crying.

The former Towie star shared a snap of a note left by one of her three step children, telling her: “[Please] stop crying. I love [you].”
Kate wrote to fans that while she’d hoped the screaming baby would “drown out the sound of her tears”, lockdown meant that “little ears were listening in”.
“To new mums, mums, step mums … and anyone who is struggling in lockdown, I feel you,” she began the emotional post.
“Sometimes we just need to sneak in our room and have a little cry … even then, because of lockdown, we may have lots of little ears listening in.

“A mix of the new baby, lockdown, kids at home and lack of sleep have well and truly got me.
“I feel like I’m a robot going through the same routine daily, feed baby, wind baby, wait for him to wake and repeat.”
The new mum continued that while she knew she was “blessed” to have her “husband, four beautiful kids, and two dogs”, she felt “trapped”.
“Some moments I’m feeling amazing and full of love, but I’m too often left feeling low, like I can’t escape,” she wrote.

“All my coping mechanisms I’ve learnt over the years to keep my anxiety at bay I can’t utilise. A workout, a long walk, some alone time.
“I never normally talk openly with how I’m feeling on here in the present, I always open up when I’m feeling better or it leaves me feeling really vulnerable.
“Your messages made me feel so much better last time and not alone.”
The proud parents shared the first glimpse of their little one in a sweet snap of Rio and the kids gathered around their Christmas tree in matching green pyjamas.

The star fell pregnant last year after beginning to try for a baby in 2018, as Rio’s three children admitted they were keen to welcome another sibling to the brood.
It came a year after Kate and Rio began their relationship in 2017, tying the knot in Turkey in 2019.
