The new mum penned: ‘Thank you for all of your amazing messages & support. I am grateful for you all ⭐️
‘Lots of you have been feeling similar in lockdown, although not every day is amazing at the moment, it really has helped me the last few days to focus on the things I am grateful for.’
Kate also said that ‘being able to walk & get fresh air- something I’ve taken for granted until I couldn’t the last few weeks’, was another positive thing to cherish.
She continued her grateful list: ‘All of the amazing memories I have been able to make with my family over the last few years.
So cute: Kate posted a snap of her baby son’s hands in her post after welcoming him into the world in December
‘My emotions, although I am so emotional, it helps me to be loving and the person I am.
‘I could add so many more photos, but these are some of my favourites. What are you guys grateful for?’
The post comes after Kate showed off a sweet handwritten note from her stepdaughter Tia, nine, who asked her to stop crying after hearing her sob behind a door.
The former TOWIE star said she hoped Cree’s screams would ‘drown out the sound of my tears’, and that she was was overwhelmed when she found a message which read: ‘Pls stop crying. I love u,’ (sic) had been slipped through the door.

Kate wrote: ‘Just when I thought the screaming baby would drown out the sound of my tears, I get this through the door as if I wasn’t emotional enough.
‘To new mums, mums, step mums … and anyone who is struggling in lockdown, I feel you! Sometimes we just need to sneak in our room and have a little cry … even then, because of lockdown, we may have lots of little ears listening in.
‘A mix of the new baby, lockdown, kids at home and lack of sleep have well and truly got me. I feel like I’m a robot going through the same routine daily, feed baby, wind baby, wait for him to wake and repeat.’
Kate told her followers she is ‘ blessed to live the life I do’, with husband Rio and her three stepchildren; Lorenz, 14, Tate, 12 Tia, son Cree, and her two dogs.
