Kate Ferdinand has announced the loss of her unborn second child with husband and former England footballer Rio Ferdinand.

The former reality TV star shared the news with her 1.4 million Instagram followers, saying she was "devastated and heartbroken".

Alongside a black and white photo of her legs resting on the edge of a hospital bed, Mrs Ferdinand 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.

"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."

She added that she was "grateful" for the hugs she received from her "bigger babies" when she returned home.

The 31-year-old, who found fame on reality show The Only Way is Essex, married Rio, 43, in September 2019.

They already share a son, Cree, who was born in December 2020.

The former Manchester United star also has three children from his former relationship with his first wife Rebecca Ellison, who died of breast cancer in 2015.

When announcing the birth of her first son, Mrs Ferdinand detailed her "traumatic" experience of undergoing an emergency C-section.

"After having an emergency C-section, and a bit of a traumatic birth I've been completely wiped out," she said.

"It's a whirlwind I just wasn't expecting... but at the same time the most perfect whirlwind."
