In December 2020, she gave birth to their first child together, a son Cree. The celebrity couple were happily expecting for the second time as well, but they lost their unborn child. Kate opened up about the whole situation on her Instagram.
“The last time I was in the hospital, I gave birth to Cree. This time it was because our baby had no pulse during the routine checkup at 12 weeks. Then I had to have surgery. We were excited and planning how we would welcome our baby into the family. We were eager to shout this news to the world. Unfortunately, sometimes life doesn’t go according to your plans,” Kate wrote.
“I have so many things on my mind, but somehow I can’t find the right words. Even though my heart is broken, I couldn’t be more grateful for the hugs I got. received from my grown children when I got home,” she added.
