Kate Ferdinand has announced she's suffered a "devastating" miscarriage.

The 31 year old took to her Instagram to share the heartbreaking news as she posted a black and white image of herself in a hospital gown.

She 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," followed by a heartbroken emoji.

Kate, who shares son Cree with her husband Rio Ferdinand, continued: "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. 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," with a broken heart emoji and a praying hands emoji.

Celebrity friends were quick to share their condolences following Kate and her husband Rio's loss as Sam Faiers wrote: "This is heartbreaking sending you lots of love and strength x x," with a crying emoji.

Georgia Kousoulou shared: "So sorry Kate," with a red heart emoji, as pregnant Lottie Tomlinson said: "So sorry," with a crying emoji and three red heart emojis.

Many of Kate's 1.4million fans were also quick to share their heartbreak over her loss as one person wrote: "You poor thing. Sending you so much love and support x".

While another shared: "Sorry to hear this kate thinking of you and your family xxx," with two red heart emojis.

Rio and Kate married back in 2019 in a beautiful beach ceremony in Marmaris, Turkey, after three years of dating.

Kate became the stepmum of Rio's three children Lorenz, 16, Tate, 13, and Tia, 11, who he had with his late wife Rebecca Ellison.

In December 2020, Kate and Rio welcomed their first child together, Cree.

The birth of their son was not without complications though as she was rushed in for an emergency C-section.

Sharing a snap of her bruised body at the time, she explained: “I wanted to share this with you. This is me … and let me add this is a much better version of me than the last 10 days.

“After having an emergency c section, and a bit of a traumatic birth I’ve been completely wiped out.

"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.

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