This news comes after Kate took a break from social media.

But she reassured her fans on her Instagram stories that she simply needed some time off.

She shared: “Hey guys, had so many messages about me working out so thought I would give you a little update…

“I know I’ve been a bit slack on here recently, I’ve been enjoying phone free time. I know I say this all the time, but it is quite mental for me.

“I’ve found especially whilst being pregnant the gym helps me to feel like ‘me’ as much as I can.

“Being pregnant for the first time there is a lot of unknowns so it’s nice to have some form of consistency where possible.”
