In a revealing chat with OK!,Kate Ferdinand has opened up about her worries ahead of giving birth to her first child.
“I’m worried about how I’m going to cope with four kids and two dogs,” the former TOWIE star disclosed.
Currently married to former footballer Rio Ferdinand, a heavily pregnant Kate, 29, is already step mum to Rio’s three children.
She’s set to give birth to their son, her first child, sometime soon. However, she avoided revealing the due date – insisting that “it’s quite nice to keep some things to yourself.”

She did, however, tell us that she’s “ready for him to make an appearance and hoping it won’t be too long.”
Kate is currently step mum to Lorenz, 14, Tate, 12, and Tia, nine – Rio’s three children from his first marriage to Rebecca Ellison (who passed away in 2015 after a battle with breast cancer).
But it’s the logistics, not love, that have got Kate feeling “nervous”.

“I’m not worried about giving them the love or them feeling left out. We’re all so close,” she affirms.
Admitting that she doesn’t have a plan for how she’s going to make it all work, Kate confessed that she’s “a bit of a worrier".
“It’s quite a busy household as it is – we’ve got a lot going on,” she reveals.

“There’s a lot of horse riding, football, everything. So it makes me a little bit nervous – having a baby and how he’s going to fit in.”
Kate believes that when their baby boy arrives, it’ll “take a bit of time” for everything to settle down.
“It’s really important for me that all the children are treated the same and they all have the same amount of love, care and attention,” she adds.
She’s also not had the easiest of pregnancies.
“I have struggled quite a lot,” she admitted when asked if she’d had many issues. Kate suffered with backache, pelvic pain and SPD [symphysis pubis dysfunction, which causes discomfort in the pelvic region].
“Some days I can’t walk very well, or I can’t cook or stand up,” she adds.
But the family is ready and waiting for their new arrival with his calming nursery set up and ready to go and it’s something the five of them are all looking forward to.
“I think all the kids are really excited and I’ve got three little helpers, which is quite lucky,” Kate gushes.
