A reality TV star and soccer WAG has revealed her jaw-dropping post-baby body eight months after giving birth to her first child.
A British WAG has taken to Instagram to reveal her post-baby body eight months after giving birth.
Kate Ferdinand, 30, and her famous soccer player husband Rio, 42, welcomed their son Cree into the world on December 18.
She’s also a second mum to Rio’s three children from his marriage to his late wife Rebecca Ellison.
Months after welcoming their new bub, Kate said she was learning to love her new body.
The former reality star, who appeared on The Only Way Is Essex, showed off her toned figure while on holiday with her family.
The mum posed in a two-piece and summer hat on a yacht, telling fans: “Happiest at sea.”
Fans bombarded her post telling her how “amazing” and “insane” she looks.
“You’ve had a baby, wow,” one follower commented.
“The body on you, ”said another.
It’s the first time Kate has shared a bikini photo since giving birth, discussing her concerns about “bouncing back” with The Sun in May.
“There is a lot of pressure to bounce back but I don’t feel it is realistic with a newborn baby and three other children,” she told the publication.
“I would love to look how I looked before Cree but I am not putting a load of pressure on myself because things don’t always go to plan when you have a baby.
“You might plan to eat healthily and go to the gym. But then something happens and you still haven’t cooked dinner, so you end up snacking.
“I just thought, ‘I need to enjoy this moment with my family rather than freaking out about whether I do or don’t feel good, or whether I don’t look like how I used to look.’
“Obviously I love the gym and I love exercising. But I might not make my session every day because the baby might not have slept and I am really tired.
“I am not putting that pressure on myself. I try to move when I can. I will try and exercise more and I will try and eat more healthily.
“But if I fancy a vodka because I need one, I won’t beat myself up about it.
“People do comment on what you look like, so I was a bit nervous about uploading stuff at the beginning.
“I felt like everyone expected me to look a certain way.
“I thought, ‘If I keep putting up amazing photos all the time it just isn’t my reality.’ I’m sitting at home in my gym clothes with no make-up on four days a week.”
She also admits it is “crazy” looking back on her days on popular UK reality show The Only Way Is Essex, which she quit after starting to date the former Manchester United star.
Kate says: “There are so many things about motherhood that no one tells you. I’d had the baby and I was in this whirlwind of emotion.
“My body was not the body I recognised. I felt really overwhelmed.
“I was feeling really abnormal and I started panicking. ‘Am I meant to be feeling like this?’
“I was so happy but very emotional. And I was looking through social media and thinking, ‘Is this normal? Because no one ever says this.’
“I thought, ‘If I put up a photo of me with my hair and make-up done perfect, that is not real and it is not how I feel.’
“I felt like I had to share it. And then it was crazy the amount of people who told me they felt the same. I think that’s why it is right to not share the perfect pictures all the time.
“When you are going through post-pregnancy, you can’t see out of the bubble. You think, ‘I am never going to go back to normal or feel the same again.’
“But you do come out of the other side and you will feel OK.”
