Kate Ferdinand has admitted feeling uncertain about having another baby with husband Rio, saying the thought makes her “anxious”.

“The happiness has been overwhelming but so have the tears and emotions.

“I’ve felt like I can’t do what I’m meant to be doing with Cree as I haven’t been able to change or feed him consistently, which has had me feeling all types of guilt, for Cree, Rio & that I can’t be doing what I normally do for the kids.
