Retired footballer, Rio Ferdinand and his wife Kate have announced they are expecting their first child together.
The 29-year-old former reality television star, Kate and Rio Ferdinand made their announcement on Instagram, both sharing a video where they shared the big news with Rio’s three children.
In the video, the children, who are turned away from the camera, are looking through a photo album at childhood pictures of themselves.
As they turn the page, they read: “Now for the next chapter, guess what?”
Kate then tells the children – 13-year-old Lorenz, 11-year-old Tate and nine-year-old Tia – that she is pregnant, standing up and showing them her baby bump, much to their excitement.
“We got our wish, another Ferdinand en route!!” Rio wrote.
“I can’t wait to go through this whole pregnancy together and then bring our little human into this world.”
Kate stated in her caption: “The crazy house is about to get a little crazier.”
The former cast member of The Only Way Is Essex added that every time she watches the video, it makes her cry.
“The best reaction,” she wrote, in reference to the way the three children jumped up and screamed in excitement.
“Baby Ferdy we are all so excited to meet you.”
