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

Thank goodness for her step-kids.

What did Kate Ferdinand say about her step-kids?

She shared an image of a scrap of paper with the words “Pls stop crying, I love u” written on it.

Kate captioned the image: “Just when I thought the screaming baby would drown out the sound of my tears, I get this through the door. As if I wasn’t emotional enough.

“To new mums, mums, stepmums and anyone who is struggling in lockdown, I feel you!

A mix of the new baby, lockdown, kids at home and lack of sleep have well and truly got me.

“Sometimes we just need to sneak in our room and have a little cry… even then, because of lockdown, we may have lots of little ears.

“A mix of the new baby, lockdown, kids at home and lack of sleep have well and truly got me.

“I feel like I’m a robot going through the same routine daily, feed baby, wind baby, wait for him to wake and repeat.”

What else did she say?

She went on to say that she’s thankful for her life and her family.

But she also admitted: “I’m too often left feeling low, like I can’t escape.

“I’m not sure if this is the after-effects of an emergency C-section or the stress of another lockdown – maybe it’s even a mix of both.

She went on to say that her “emotions and anxiety are at an all-time high”.

“Everything passes, and I know too this soon shall pass, I’m just in it right now.”
