She is expecting her second baby with husband Rio Ferdinand.
And Kate Ferdinand has now revealed her exact due date, as she told her fans on Instagram her little girl is due to be born in just eight weeks time.
Kate, who is already mum to son Cree, two, and step-mother to Lorenz, Tia and Tate, shared the exciting news during a new Q&A on her social media page.
Kate was asked: ‘How long before bubbas due. Exciting times’, and she replied: ‘Eight weeks to go and the belly is rapidly growing.’
Alongside the snap, Kate shared a picture of her growing bump in a crop top and sweatpants and she proudly showcased her belly.
Not long! Kate Ferdinand has now revealed her exact due date, as she told her fans on Instagram her little girl is due to be born in just eight weeks time
The news comes as Kate revealed she and Rio have only just plucked up the courage to start having their first ‘pecks’ in front of their children – six years after getting together.
Kate said she and Rio started off with a no-kissing rule when they were in front of his three children from his first wife Rebecca.
She added that it’s only been recently that they’ve finally begun having the odd quick peck – but they still make light of the brief moments of affection as ‘disgusting’.
Kate said her whole relationship with Rio wasn’t romantic at the start because of the complications of his children from his first marriage.
She told how she and the ex-footballer ensured the kids didn’t mind their early ‘dates’ out together by restricting them to just half-hour visits to the pub before coming home to all play games together.
Former Towie star Kate is step-mum to Rio’s first three children Lorenz, Tate, and Tia, who were aged ten, eight and six respectively when she first started dating Rio.
The children’s biological mother Rebecca died of breast cancer aged 34 in 2015.
Speaking about how she and Rio had to be sensitive about their relationship early on because of the children, Kate said: ‘We didn’t have the whole honeymoon period.

‘It went full-blown “right we’ve got kids and if we’re going to make this work we’re all in”.
‘So the romance was pretty dead because there’s three kids, they’ve lost their mum, you’re thinking about so much, you just want to get it right.
‘I don’t feel like I was there constantly, and when I was I was fun. And absolutely no kissing.
‘We said this the other day – I said “we don’t really kiss in front of the kids that much”.
‘I said “it’s because at the beginning we were so conscious to not do it, to not worry them, or make it uncomfortable, that all of a sudden we’ve then just continued that”.
‘So we’ve started to have a little peck. We go “Oh, give us a kiss – Urgh, disgusting”.
‘But it is six years down the line now.’

Kate also told how she and Rio, 44, carefully planned for their early meet-ups in the presence of his first three children to take place at a mutual friend’s house, where it appeared like she just happened to be there as another one of Rio’s friends.
Speaking on the Scummy Mummies podcast, she added: ‘I just met as dad’s friend – it wasn’t like a girlfriend – and through a mutual friend.
‘And I was just round the house, and then Rio and the kids came round, and I was there. And we did a few things like that where I happened to be there a few times.
‘And then Rio was like ‘that girl that’s at the house with the dog, do you think I should ask her on a date?’ ‘
After they later started meeting at each other’s homes and going out for couple dates, they still kept their time together to just one quick drink nearby.
Kate said: ‘We used to do this thing where we’d say we’re going on a date. We wouldn’t really – we’d just go to the pub and have a drink – and we’d be back within half an hour.
‘And then we’d do something really fun with the kids when we got back.
‘So every time I came they’d associate it with ‘Oh, we’re doing something fun afterwards’.
‘And actually dad isn’t gone for that long, she’s not taken dad away from us. We’re actually then all coming together and doing more fun stuff. And that seemed to work.’
