Kate Ferdinand thanks Instagram followers following miscarriage
Kate told her 1.4 million followers last week that her second pregnancy had come to a devastating end.
She shared the news alongside a black and white photo taken in a hospital ward.
The heartbreaking caption read: “The last time I was in this hospital I was having Cree, but this time it was because our baby had no heartbeat in our 12 week scan and I had to have surgery.
“We were so excited & planning a space for our new baby in our family, we just couldn’t wait to share our news with you all, but unfortunately sometimes life just doesn’t go as we plan.”
She continued: “So much to say, but somehow I can’t find the words.
“Absolutely devastated & heartbroken …but couldn’t be more grateful for the hugs I got from my big(er) babies coming through the door when we arrived home.”
Kate is married to football pundit Rio Ferdinand
Kate, who shot to fame in The Only Way Is Essex, married ex-England footballer Rio Ferdinand in 2019.
Their son, Cree, was born in December 2020.
Kate’s friends and followers rallied around to offer their support after with former co-stars sending their condolences.
Her former TOWIE co-star, Sam Faiers, wrote: “This is heartbreaking. Sending you lots of love and strength.”
Fellow WAG Danielle Lloyd also commented, saying: “So sorry for your loss @xkateferdinand.”
