Kate Ferdinand says having a baby 'frightens' her six months after miscarriage

Kate Ferdinand revealed she's nervous about having a baby after previously having a miscarriage.

Last summer, she announced that she has suffered a "devastating" miscarriage and had to have surgery following her 12-week scan.

Six months later, Kate took to Instagram to reveal she's expecting another child with her husband Rio Ferdinand.

Kate, 31, and Rio, 44, are already parents to son Cree and Rio's three children Lorenz, 16, Tate, 14, and Tia, 11, - from his marriage to late wife Rebecca.

Speaking about the pregnancy, she said: "It's a bit of a worry with what happened last time with the miscarriage, and now we're going to have five children.

"When I say that out loud, that frightens me. But we're so excited, it's such a blessing."

Opening up about her first trimester on her Blended podcast, she added: "In my last pregnancy, when I had the miscarriage, I moaned constantly.

"And then when the miscarriage happened, I felt terrible for moaning and thinking I was really ungrateful.

"I'm not sure if Rio would agree, but I think I've moaned a little bit less this time."

At the end of January, the former TOWIE star made the pregnancy reveal on Instagram as she told fans they'd been 'praying' for another child.

In a black-and-white video, Kate walked away from the camera as she began unbuttoning her coat to reveal a glimpse of her pregnant stomach under a black midi dress.

Ex-footballer and BT Sport pundit Rio also shared the video on his Instagram with the number five in a red love heart.

After hearing the exciting news, friends and fans rushed to the comment section to congratulate her.

Molly-Mae Hague, who recently welcomed a daughter, said: "Congratulations Kate" while Michelle Keegan added: "Congratulations darling."

Holly Willoughby posted: "Aww congratulations to you both… that’s lovely news," while Billie Shepherd said: "Huge congratulations darling."

In September, Kate shared with fans that she had suffered a miscarriage in July.

Speaking on her podcast, Kate spoke of the moment she realised her pregnancy wasn't progressing and seeing the sonographer's face when they were told there was no heartbeat.

Kate said she immediately 'burst into tears'.

"We went to lunch before the 12-week scan and there was blood there and I felt like god was giving me a sign. We were literally leaving to go to the scan.

'We both tried to pretend it wasn't happening and it was fine. It was the longest walk ever to the hospital. I felt like I knew and someone was preparing me. I just had to look at the lady's face. It was awful, I just burst into tears."
