It comes after Kate posted a photo of herself holding her adorable newborn son Cree and showing off large bruises on the top of her thigh.

She candidly opened up on her birth experience and revealed she had an emergency c-section in the caption.

Kate wrote: “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.”
