Days after Christmas, former TOWIE star Kate opened up about her “traumatic” birth.

Alongside a photo of herself showing her postpartum body as she held Cree, Kate said: “We are so obsessed with our little angel Cree. I just seem to stare at him for hours on end.

“Seeing the kids and him is literally what dreams are made of, feeling completely overwhelmed.”

She added: “After having an emergency c section, and a bit of a traumatic birth I’ve been completely wiped out.

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

“It’s a whirlwind I just wasn’t expecting … but at the same time the most perfect whirlwind.”

Meanwhile, days earlier, the star and Rio revealed Cree had arrived by sharing a family photo of the newborn alongside Rio and his children – Lorenz, Tate and Tia.
