Kate Ferdinand has taken to Instagram to announce that she has suffered a ‘devasting’ miscarriage with husband Rio. 

Kate, who shares one-year-old son Cree with Rio (opens in new tab) and is a stepmother to his three children, Lorenz, 16, Tate, 13, and Tia, 11, took to Instagram to share the sad news, describing how ‘devastated and heartbroken’ she is over their loss.

In the post, Kate 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 💔.”
