Kate Ferdinand was «nervous» about sharing the «reality» of motherhood on social media.
The former ‘Only Way Is Essex’ star welcomed a baby into the world with her husband last month and whilst she admitted at first she was worried about sharing details of the ups and downs, she is glad she has and thanked those who shared their own experiences.
Writing on Instagram, she said: «2021 update so far. Showering and fresh PJs are still happening. Haven’t made it into clothes yet hoping at some stage in 2021 I will get dressed … I was overwhelmed by all of your comments on my most recent picture.
«Sometimes social media can be such a negative place but since sharing this post it has been so positive for me. I was nervous about sharing my reality but so glad I did. So many of you have had similar experiences and share the same feelings and emotions. It’s nice to know we are not alone. Thank you for all of your comments. I have read them all.»
Kate previously revealed she had a «traumatic birth» with her newborn son.
In a lengthy Instagram post, she wrote: «What a bubble this is … We are so obsessed with our little angel Cree. I just seem to stare at him for hours on end. Seeing the kids and him is literally what dreams are made of, feeling completely overwhelmed.
«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. (sic)»
