Kate announced the sad news last week, explaining that she had been attending her 12-week scan with she was told by doctors that her baby had no heartbeat.

Posting a black and white photo of her legs wrapped in a hospital gown, Kate told her 1.4 million followers: "The last time I was in this hospital I was having Cree, but this time it was because our baby had no heartbeat in our 12 week scan and I had to have surgery."

She continued: "We were so excited & planning a space for our new baby in our family, we just couldn’t wait to share our news with you all, but unfortunately sometimes life just doesn’t go as we plan.

"So much to say, but somehow I can’t find the words. Absolutely devastated & heartbroken …but couldn’t be more grateful for the hugs I got from my big(er) babies coming through the door when we arrived home."
