Retired footballer Rio re-shared the clip with the number five in a red love heart, which was his shirt number at United and number of children he will soon be father to.

Last September, Kate sadly revealed she had suffered a miscarriage in July.

Talking on her podcast Blended, she explained: "We just thought it would be lovely to for him to have a little friend running around. The kids clocked on this time so we told them and some family this time.

"We went to lunch before the 12-week scan and there was blood there and I felt like God was giving me a sign. We were literally leaving to go to the scan.

"We both tried to pretend it wasn't happening and it was fine. It was the longest walk ever to the hospital. I felt like I knew and someone was preparing me. I just had to look at the lady's face. It was awful, I just burst into tears."

She added: "I wasn't prepared for what happens afterwards. We had planned how to tell everyone. We had filmed the kids and were going to go home and put it on social media.

"I just wanted to get out of the room but also thought of leaving the room terrified me because I have to go and tell the children and go home and act normal.

"It was a Friday and Lorenz's birthday on the Sunday and then surgery on the Monday. It was the longest weekend of my life.

"It was really hard when you're grieving a loss that no one can see."
