Kate Ferdinand is pregnant!

Rio and Kate Ferdinand have announced they’re expecting their second child together.

The couple confirmed their joyous news over the weekend.

Kate announced the news on her Instagram by sharing a video of her baby bump.

Alongside the video, the mum wrote, “We’ve been praying for you.”

The couple’s news comes after they suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage in 2022.

Kate lost her baby at 12 weeks in July.

Accompanying a black and white photo of her lower body in a hospital gown, she wrote: “The last time I was in this hospital I was having Cree, but this time it was because our baby had no heartbeat in our 12-week scan and I had to have surgery.

“We were so excited & planning a space for our new baby in our family.”

“We just couldn’t wait to share our news with you all, but unfortunately sometimes life just doesn’t go as we plan.

She said she was feeling absolutely devastated and heartbroken following the loss.

“But couldn’t be more grateful for the hugs I got from my big(er) babies coming through the door when we arrived home.”

Kate and Rio are parents to their son Cree. Kate is also a step-mum to Rio’s three children- 16-year-old Lorenz, 13-year-old Tate, and 11-year-old Tia.

Sportsman Rio Ferdinand married Kate in 2019.

His first wife Rebecca Ellison sadly passed away from breast cancer in 2015.
