"The best reaction. Baby Ferdy, we are all so excited to meet you."

Rio shared the same video and accompanied it with this message: "We got our wish, another Ferdinand en route!!

A source close to the pair told The Sun: "Everyone is deliriously happy. Kate’s pregnancy has made everyone beam with joy.

"She’s had a rough few weeks, but couldn’t be happier. She always wanted her own children with Rio, and to grow his existing family. Everyone is so excited."

Kate is already a loving stepmum to Rio's kids Tate, Tia and Lorenz.

She and the former football ace tied the knot in Turkey in September 2019.

It seems that the kids had been hoping for news of a new sibling for some time.

Kate recently revealed that they had predicted when a baby brother or sister would join them.

Awkward questions

In an interview with The Sun, she said: "Conversations have got a bit graphic with the kids. They're saying: 'When are you going to do it, then?' It's so funny."

She added: "One of them said: 'You're not going to have [sex] in lockdown while we're in the house, so I think you're going to have it in October.'

"I'm like, 'I can't believe I'm having this conversation!'"

The 29-year-old added: "That's just part of being a parent, isn't it? Where is the love life?!

"We're getting a little bit of time here and there, but I wouldn't call it couple time."

She joked: "We're busy, our time together might be talking about cleaning the toilet, rather than: 'Oh, I love you so much!'"

Kate said at the time: "We're really lucky, considering I've come in and haven't known the kids all their lives. We are a tight family unit and if you looked in, you'd just see happiness."

Kate has shared touching snaps on her Instagram, showing the close bond she has with her stepkids. From cuddles with Tia, to getting a hug from stepson Tate, it's clear the Ferdinand family has a strong bond.
