She uploaded a candid black and white pregnancy throwback to Instagram showing her baby bump just before her son’s birth.

Her grandmother was seen holding both hands to Cath’s stomach urging the little man to hurry up as he was more than two weeks late.

Catherine shared the pregnancy image with the caption: “Throwback. Gran-Gran Jean waiting for Alfie to kick.”

Fans were quick to gush about the beautiful photo and lovely family moment, with one simply saying: “So sweet.”

Catherine and husband Tom Pitfield became parents in March 2015 with the arrival of their first child Alfie after a 38-hour labour.

She later said that becoming a mother had changed her for the better.

“Having a baby has changed me for the better,” she told Hello. “I was used to doing what I wanted, when I wanted, with no one else to think about except myself.

“Then suddenly this baby arrives and he comes first.”
