Taking to Instagram at the time she shared a a black and white image of herself in a hospital gown.

She wrote: "The last time I was in this hospital I was having Cree, but this time it was because our baby had no heartbeat in our 12 week scan and I had to have surgery," followed by a heartbroken emoji.

We were so excited & planning a space for our new baby in our family, we just couldn’t wait to share our news with you all, but unfortunately sometimes life just doesn’t go as we plan.

"So much to say, but somehow I can’t find the words. Absolutely devastated & heartbroken …but couldn’t be more grateful for the hugs I got from my big(er) babies coming through the door when we arrived home," with a broken heart emoji and a praying hands emoji.

Rio and Kate married back in 2019 in a beautiful beach ceremony in Marmaris, Turkey, after three years of dating.

Kate became the stepmum of Rio's three children Lorenz, 16, Tate, 13, and Tia, 11, who he shared with his late wife Rebecca Ellison, who passed away in 2015 after a short battle with breast cancer.

In December 2020, Kate and Rio welcomed their first child together, Cree.
