“We are so happy to announce that our beautiful daughter has arrived. We are beyond words grateful and overjoyed that our family is complete,” Catherine wrote, captioning her daughter.

“I feel like I’ve been pregnant since 1942…hugging PJs, a bump and copious amounts of pineapple while I still can!”
Speaking about her pregnancy last year, Catherine said that while little Alfie wasn’t too keen on the idea of becoming a big brother at first, he had come to terms with it.
“We were a little nervous because I remember asking him a while back “would you like a sibling?” and his response was “mom, I’d rather you didn’t” she laughed.
‘We waited until after the 12 week ultrasound to tell him and he took it very well. He was super enthusiastic and we were overjoyed.’
Catherine and her husband announced they were expecting their second child in October, but admitted during her pregnancy that they hadn’t come up with names yet.
Difficulties: The pregnancy came after the star struggled with two years of phantom pregnancy symptoms due to a hormonal imbalance
Speak with OKAY! after the announcement, Catherine gushed, “We are absolutely delighted. We feel so happy. When we found out, I just burst into tears.”
The pregnancy came after the star struggled with two years of phantom pregnancy symptoms due to a hormonal imbalance.
“I did so many tests because I was convinced I was really pregnant, but in fact my body was just mimicking a pregnancy,” she said. “So this time, even when my stomach was a little swollen, I just thought, Oh hormonal imbalances again!
“Tom was confused when we found out we’re having a little girl. He has suddenly become all mushy. I’m sure she’ll wrap it around her little finger.’
Catherine and Tom had a whirlwind romance, and after just four months of dating, they discovered they were expecting their son Alfie.
