Pregnant Kate Ferdinand has revealed she’s picked out a name for her little boy but is already going off it.
The former TOWIE star, 29, who is expecting a baby boy with husband Rio Ferdinand in the next few weeks, has confessed the couple just can’t seem to stick on a name.
When asked if she’s picked out a name for their new arrival, Kate tentatively told OK! : “We have a couple of potentials. But we’re just waiting to see what he looks like when he comes out and if he suits them.”
She revealed there’s “one favourite name” in their shortlist but that she’s worried she’s already going 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!” she laughed.
Kate and Rio, along with his three children from his first marriage – Tate, 12, Lorenz, 14, and Tia, nine – have been preparing to welcome their newest addition to their family.
She reveals that Rio’s children – whose mum Rebecca Ellison died of breast cancer in 2015 – have been very vocal in their opinions on the name of their new sibling.
Kate, who has acted as stepmum since she and Rio wed in September 2019, said: “We discuss everything as a family.“
Her confession over her little one’s name comes just days after she was reportedly left “devastated” after she was forced to cancel her baby shower plans because of the lockdown in England.
She is said to be gutted after the government imposed a month of restrictions in a bid to curb the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.
An insider told Heat magazine the lockdown left the reality star in tears when it came into force last week, as it “ruined all [her] plans”.
The source told the publication: “She knew she couldn’t have a huge bash, but she was hoping they could still do something with a few friends.
“Of course, she knows how lucky she is, but she cant help but feel upset that she won’t get her big celebration.”
Blossoming Kate recently opened up on how she’s struggled with pregnancy as she suffers with with pain in her lower back and groin.
Her pregnancy has also reportedly been a big source of worry for poor Kate.
“Kate’s due in December and is really anxious that lockdown won’t be over,” a source revealed.
“It may mean Rio won’t be able to be with her for the birth. She’s trying not to worry but this is her first baby – who wouldn’t be feeling anxious?”
