Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand and his wife, former reality TV star Kate, have announced they are expecting their second child together six months after suffering a heartbreaking miscarriage.

The couple announced the joyful news to her 1.4 million followers on Instagram with a short video clip featuring Kate’s baby bump. The video was accompanied by the caption ‘We’ve been praying for you’, as well as enthusiastic responses from celebrities such as Holly Willoughby who commented “Awww congratulations to you both… that's lovely news.”

The couple are already parents to their son Cree who was born in December 2020, however last year in July Mrs Ferdinand announced that she had suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage just days before she was due for her 12-week scan. This announcement was met with an outpouring of messages from fans offering their support and condolences.

Speaking on her Blended podcast in September, Mrs Ferdinand recalled the moment she discovered she had lost her unborn child, saying ‘I found out I was pregnant the day before my birthday… I just had to look at the lady's face (sonographer). It was awful, I just burst into tears. I wasn't prepared for what happens afterwards. We had planned how to tell everyone. We had filmed the kids and were going to go home and put it on social media… it was a Friday and Lorenz (eldest son) birthday on the Sunday and then surgery on Monday.' Her husband Rio also shares three children from his first marriage with Rebecca Ellison who passed away in 2015 due to breast cancer: Lorenz aged 16, Tate aged 14 and Tia aged 11; making them also step-siblings of Cree aged 2.

Mrs Ferdinand also discussed how going into hospital for surgery after suffering her miscarriage brought back memories of childbirth describing it as 'the same hospital for surgery as where I had Cree and the same medical team' adding 'I felt like I was having my C-section again.' Shortly after giving birth to Cree via an emergency caesarean section; Kate took Instagram saying “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… but so have the tears and emotions I've felt like I can't do what I'm meant to be doing with Cree as I haven't been able to change or feed him consistently which has had me feeling all types of guilt…" She added “It's a whirlwind I just wasn't expecting ... but at the same time it's …the most perfect whirlwind.' Overcoming these emotions she faced earlier this year Mrs Ferdinand is now looking forward to welcoming their next family member safe into their arms soon.

The former TOWIE star has been open about how she has struggled not only with being pregnant while facing mental health battles, but also being a stepmother – evident from discussing how she seeks solace through physical activity when feeling anxious or overwhelmed; emphasizing how important movement is even if it doesn't have to be intense exercise – even if it’s taking walks together or engaging in bike rides around town. Thankfully surrounded by supportive fans, loving family members plus her husband Rio; Kate continues maintaining positivity through this joyous experience whilst tackling any difficulties faced during her pregnancy never forgetting that all good things come with love & prayer too!
