Kate Ferdinand has opened up about her relationship with her post pregnancy body after giving birth to son Cree in December and admitted she felt as though she would "never feel herself again."
The star, 30, who shares he tot with husband Rio Ferdinand, 42, shared a snap of herself nine months pregnant and then nine months after giving birth with her 1.4 million Instagram followers.
In the shots, Kate could be seen wearing black underwear. She wrote alongside the photos: "16.12.2020 / 16.9.2021. My baby is 9 months old, I can’t believe it. I felt like 9 months of pregnancy dragggggged but just like that this last 9 months have just flown by."
Kate continued: "I took this photo on the day I had Cree and comparing the two photos – it’s truly unbelievable what our bodies can do. After giving birth I truly never thought I would feel myself again, and honestly everything is a bit more wobbly than before."
However, she carried on, she now feels 'much happier'.
She wrote: "I feel so much happier, I am in awe of the fact I have produced my beautiful baby boy and super proud of the woman I have become.
"I’ve definitely eased up on the pressure I add to myself; I’ve never really had a healthy relationship with my body, but watching what it has done for me and my baby this last 18 months is nothing short of incredible."
The star – who is also stepmum to Rio's kids Tia, Tate and Lorenz from his marriage to the late Rebecca Ellison – added: "I love to work out, but for me these days it is much more about the mind & how it makes me feel rather than how I look. Be proud of yourselves mums, we are amazing."
Kate and Rio are lucky enough to have a home gym and often share videos and photos from their workouts.
Former The Only Way Is Essex star Kate has previously spoken out on her feelings towards her changed body since giving birth, saying she felt "abnormal" and "panicked."
Speaking to The Sun, stunning Kate said: "There are so many things about motherhood that no one tells you. I'd had the baby and I was in this whirlwind of emotion.

"My body was not the body I recognised. I felt really overwhelmed. I was feeling really abnormal and I started panicking. 'Am I meant to be feeling like this?'
"I was so happy but very emotional. And I was looking through social media and thinking, 'Is this normal? Because no one ever says this'.
"I thought, 'If I put up a photo of me with my hair and make up done perfect, that is not real and it is not how I feel'.
"I felt like I had to share it. And then it was crazy the amount of people who told me they felt the same. I think that's why it is right to not share the perfect pictures all the time.
"When you are going through post-pregnancy, you can't see out of the bubble. You think, 'I am never going to go back to normal or feel the same again'.
"But you do come out of the other side and you will feel OK," she continued to reassure fans who may be feeling the same.
However, she did go on to joke: "I am a bit freaked out that those big black knickers have been seen by the world."
