Kate previously revealed she had picked out a name for her and husband Rio’s baby boy but is now already starting to ‘go off it’.

‘There’s one favourite name but the more I say it the more I go off it. So we’ve decided not to talk about it for a while!’
Kate said she and her former footballer beau split their household duties evenly and described Rio as ‘very supportive’.
She said: ‘We’re 50/50 really. We share a lot of it. If he’s at work, I do stuff and if I’m struggling then he helps. He’s very good in that sense. I’m very lucky.’
Kate is stepmother to Rio’s three children whose mother Rebecca Ellison died in 2015 following a battle with breast cancer.
The mother-to-be said she has ‘three little helpers’ and all the kids are very excited about the impending arrival.
In an exclusive interview with MailOnline recently, Rio couldn’t resist sharing his admiration for Kate’s figure, saying he also adores how her body has changed during pregnancy.
Kate said: ‘When you’re in it you worry about everything but from the outside everyone thinks you look really good.
‘It’s growing to love your changing body. At the beginning, in the first trimester I was a bit nervous about everything but as time has gone on, I am growing to love my changing body so much more.’
Rio added: ‘As do I, as do I!’
Mother-to-be: The former TOWIE star is due before the end of the year
Kate also said she and the former England captain have decided they will not show their son’s face on social media once he’s born.
The former reality star, who is due before the end of the year, said: ‘We have thought about that.
‘All of our children will be treated the same – it will be the same as the other three children, his face will be kept private, so he can relax and enjoy life without the pressures of social media.’
Kate found fame on TOWIE in 2015, and then quit in 2017, shortly after meeting Rio during a Dubai holiday.
