One of Rio’s sons was seen holding sister Tia, eight, on his shoulders.

The family were all wearing matching red swimming outfits as they posed on the beach.

Rio captioned the post: “Wishing everyone out there a very merry Xmas! Next years Xmas card done!!”

Kate also shared the snap and revealed one of Rio’s sons – either Lorenz, 13, or Tate, 11, – has broken his arm.

The former TOWIE star also posted a family pic from last year’s Christmas when they spent it in the Maldives again.

She wrote: “2018 / 2019 no handstands this year as we have a broken arm.

“Merry Christmas everyone. Hope you have all had a fabulous day, lots of love.”

The couple recently revealed they’re planning to have a baby after tying the knot back in September.

In an interview with The Sun this month, Kate, 27, said that she was “suffering from her mental health” and Rio, 41, was still trying to get over the tragic death of his first wife, Rebecca Ellison, when they met.

She said they “saved each other”, adding: “We have all been through bad times and yet we are all together. Going through so much brings you even closer.

“The boys would like a boy and Tia would like a girl. One day we will.”

During an interview with Daily Mail’s You Magazine last year, Kate stressed she would never try to replace the children’s late mother, Rebecca, and spoke about how they honour Rebecca’s memory.

“Their mum is irreplaceable; we celebrate her birthday, we go to the cemetery together,” she said.
