Pregnant Kate Ferdinand has shared a photo of her growing baby bump, telling fans she can’t stop touching it.

After revealing she is expecting her first child with Rio Ferdinand last month, Kate Wright has shared a sweet photo of her blossoming bump.

Taking to Instagram, the 29-year-old star posted a mirror selfie, writing alongside it: “Unsure why I keep having photos touching my bump… but here I am doing it again.”

This comes after Kate and Rio, 41, announced their exciting news by sharing a video of the moment they first told his three kids - Lorenz, 13, Tate, 11, and Tia, nine - they have a sibling on the way.

Following the announcement, ex TOWIE star Kate recently opened up about how pregnancy has affected her emotions.

"I’ve been pretty quiet on here recently," she told her 1.3million Instagram followers.

"Honestly, I’ve just been so exhausted I don’t know whether I’m coming or going😫.

"How I’ve been feeling has been changing daily so I’ve found it hard to share anything because I don’t really know how I feel myself 🤣 .... any other pregnant women feeling the same? Or am I losing my mind??”

She continued: "It’s taken me some time to really get used to the fact that I’m growing a little human in me and to slow down.

"I’m always running around a hundred miles an hour, trying to do everything and taking it easy is just not in my makeup, it’s taken some adjustments 🙏🏻."

I’ve been pretty quiet on here recently. Honestly, I’ve just been so exhausted I don’t know wether I’m coming or going😫 how I’ve been feeling has been changing daily so I’ve found it hard to share anything because I don’t really know how I feel myself 🤣 .... any other pregnant women feeling the same? Or am I losing my mind?? Anyway, after posting a workout yesterday I’ve had so many questions about working out so thought I would share with you my journey so far. It’s taken me some time to really get used to the fact that I’m growing a little human in me and to slow down. I’m always running around a hundred miles an hour, trying to do everything and taking it easy is just not in my makeup, it’s taken some adjustments 🙏🏻. In regards to training I trained for the first 8 weeks and then became absolutely exhausted, I really struggled with everything, I just felt sick tired and all over the place constantly... it was hard for my mind but I really had to listen to my body; rest & take it easy. When I say take it easy, I took it very easy there was lots of naps and not a lot of anything else 🤣😴 After the 12 week mark I have started to feel gradually better and felt I could get back into doing more bits that I would normally do and back into training slowly, I’ve been doing Pilates & some weight training - my mind feels so much better for it, for me the gym is like therapy it really does help me stay calm and less anxious. Saying all of this, there are still days I feel absolutely wiped out, have terrible migraines & I do just go back to bed. In all honestly those days I feel so useless and have been having terrible guilt that I’m not around for the kids and Rio is doing everything 😫 It’s such an amazing feeling having a little human inside of you, our family is so excited but it’s also so scary being pregnant for the first time... I worry about everything 🤦🏼‍♀️ having 3 big kiddies to look after and feeling like a ‘mum’ already but actually not being through this experience before has me feeling all types of confused! I just wanted to share the reality of how I’m feeling, also some hope that I’m not alone ❤️ lots of love x
