Katherine is 14 weeks pregnant – and the news comes after two years of battling phantom pregnancy symptoms due to hormonal imbalances.
“I did so many tests because I was sure I was really pregnant, but really my body was just mimicking pregnancy,” she said. ‘So this time, when my stomach was a little swollen, I just thought: Oh again the hormonal imbalance!
‘Tom was in bits when we found out we were having a little girl. He has suddenly gone completely insane. I’m sure she’ll wrap it around her little finger.’

While it appeared that Catherine was trying to relax, her little boy had other ideas, and could be seen jumping over the edge of the inflatable tub and into the water.
In July, Katherine appeared sizzling in a black swimsuit as she shared an empowering message to her followers to embrace her body.
She lay cross legged on the ground while spending some quality time with her son in the garden during the heatwave.
Captioning the picture, she wrote: ‘Had a beautiful afternoon in the garden with my boys. I sometimes trick my silly little mind into thinking I don’t look good enough to wear a swimsuit.
‘That I’m not as toned as I’d like. That I’m a little squishy. But then I remind myself that I have created a human being. I eat well, and I’m super active.
‘I do everything I can to give my body the best shot at life. I know my body best how I know it, paying extra attention to immunity and energy-boosting foods.
