Rio Ferdinand’s wife Kate on fears that affected her first pregnancy

Rio Ferdinand’s wife, Kate, has been married to the former professional footballer since 2021 and is currently pregnant with their second child.

Now, Kate has lifted the lid on her first time being pregnant and how she overcame her anxieties to be able to enjoy her second pregnancy.

Speaking on the latest episode of her podcast, Blended, Kate admitted she wasn’t in “the best headspace” during the first trimester after suffering a miscarriage last year.

However, after conquering her fears, the reality TV star has been experiencing “gratitude” over her chance at being a mum again.

She said: “I’m trying to turn what I’ve been through into gratitude [though] and actually it’s working quite well for me at the moment.”

The podcast host went on: “When I was pregnant with Cree, I was more, I didn’t want my body to get big, I was like ‘oh my god I’m gonna be fat’ or ‘I’m not doing this …’.”

Explaining how things changed during her second pregnancy, Kate added: “All of a sudden I feel this gratefulness that I’m actually growing a human now and none of that matters.”

Kate continued: “It’s made me actually be able to, I never thought I’d say this, but enjoy my pregnancy more.”

Back in July, Kate took to Instagram and announced her “devastation” after she suffered a miscarriage while uploading a photo from the hospital.

Kate explained she was due to have surgery after a 12 week scan revealed the couple had lost their baby as she posted a black and white image of herself 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,” followed by a heartbroken emoji.

Kate continued: “We were so excited and 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.

“So much to say, but somehow I can’t find the words. Absolutely devastated and heartbroken …but couldn’t be more grateful for the hugs I got from my big(er) babies coming through the door when we arrived home,” with a broken heart emoji and a praying hands emoji.

The reality star was inundated with messages of support from celebrity pals and fans alike.
