It comes after Kate ‘shared the reality’ of being in a new mum in a ‘make-up filter-free’ Instagram post earlier this week.  

Kate, who is married footballer Rio Ferdinand – took to her stories on Sunday while she lay in bed trying to rest as her son Cree, five months, had a nap.

Lying in a hoodie, Kate said: ‘I know I should be in the shower now because I don’t know the window of sleep.

‘But I’m not, I’m just laying in bed thinking about getting in the shower, but when I do get in the shower, it will probably be too late and he will probably wake up screaming. 

‘But I’m still lying here. Also guys I’ve braved no filter no make-up. My skin isn’t the best, I’ve got melasma on my head, I’ve been up most of the night but do you know what I’ve just realised I have to share the reality.

‘We can do both, we can be glam and we can be exhausted too.’

A melasma is a skin condition common during pregnancy, which Kate is still suffering from six months on.

She ‘missed the shower window’ in the end, with Cree heard stirring at as the video came to a close.

She also posted a quote that read: ‘Some days I want to go back in time and find pre-kid me, who thinks she’s ‘so busy’ and ‘so tired’. And I want to smack her.’

Stripped back: 'We can do both, we can be glam and we can be exhausted too,' she said
