The couple, who tied the knot in 2019, welcomed their first child in December last year.

Following Cree’s birth, Kate opened up on the struggles she faced after becoming a first-time mum.

At the time, Kate’s anxiety reached an “all time high” and she constantly felt overwhelmed.

Opening up on Instagram, she explained: “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.”

Kate added: “I feel so lucky to have just welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world, some people never get to experience this amazing feeling, but my emotions and anxiety are at an all time high… all my coping mechanisms I’ve learnt over the years to keep my anxiety at bay I can’t utilise.

“A workout, a long walk, some alone time. Everything passes, and I know too this soon shall pass, I’m just in it right now.

“This is all new to me as I never normally talk openly with how I’m feeling on here in the present, I always open up when I’m feeling better or it leaves me feeling really vulnerable… but your messages made me feel so much better last time and not alone.”

Rio and Kate went public with their romance in 2017, shortly after her departure from The Only Way Is Essex.
