Kate Ferdinand has shared her devastation at losing a baby.

The former TOWIE star posted a picture from her hospital bed on Thursday (July 28), alongside the heartbreaking message.

"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," she wrote on Instagram along with a broken heart 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."

She continued: "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."

Kate already shares 1-year-old son Cree with husband Rio Ferdinand.

The 31-year-old had a traumatic birth with her son, having to undergo an emergency C-section.

"The happiness has been overwhelming but so have the tears and emotions, I've felt like I can't do what I'm meant to be doing with Cree as I haven't been able to change or feed him consistently which has had me feeling all types of guilt, for Cree, Rio & that I can't be doing what I normally do for the kids," she said at the time.

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

Kate is also a stepmum to Rio's three children Lorenz, 15, Tate, 13, and 11-year-old Tia from his marriage to Rebecca Ellison.

Ellison sadly passed away in 2015 at the age of 34 following a battle with breast cancer.

Kate previously discussed her relationship with Rio's children and their family dynamic.

"Their mum is a massive part of our lives and always will be. I would never want the children to think I am taking the role of [Rebecca]," she said on the Parenting Hell podcast.

"I am a maternal figure to them but their mum is their mum. She is part of our lives. We talk about her all the time.

"It is really weird but I feel like I know her."
