Last week, Kate was asked: ‘How long before bubbas due. Exciting times’, to which she replied: ‘Eight weeks to go and the belly is rapidly growing.’
Alongside the snap, Kate shared a picture of her growing bump in a crop top and sweatpants and she proudly showcased her belly.
Elsewhere in the Q&A, Kate revealed she and Rio have only just plucked up the courage to start having kissing in front of their kids, six years after getting together.
Kate told how she and Rio started off with a no-kissing rule when they were in front of his three children from his late wife Rebecca.
Kate said her whole relationship with Rio wasn’t romantic at the start because of the complications of his children from his first marriage.
She told how she and Rio ensured the kids didn’t mind their early ‘dates’ out together by restricting themselves to half-hour visits to the pub.
Speaking about how she and Rio had to be sensitive about their relationship early on because of the children, Kate said: ‘We didn’t have the whole honeymoon period.

‘It went full-blown “right we’ve got kids and if we’re going to make this work we’re all in”.
‘So the romance was pretty dead because there’s three kids, they’ve lost their mum, you’re thinking about so much, you just want to get it right.
‘I don’t feel like I was there constantly, and when I was I was fun. And absolutely no kissing. We said this the other day – I said “we don’t really kiss in front of the kids that much”.
‘I said “it’s because at the beginning we were so conscious to not do it, to not worry them, or make it uncomfortable, that all of a sudden we’ve then just continued that”.
‘So we’ve started to have a little peck. We go “Oh, give us a kiss – Urgh, disgusting”. But it is six years down the line now.’
