It was a very emotional time: ‘Kate Ferdinand’ rushed to hospital after her formerly estranged father suffered health anxiety’ before heading to Dubai for vacation
Kate Ferdinand reportedly had to race to hospital after her formerly estranged father suffered health concerns last week.
The former TOWIE star, 30, – who is married to footballer Rio Ferdinand – was due to attend a family wedding at the time but was forced to leave her family and rush to check in with father Phil, 61, according to The sun.
A source told the publication: ‘It was a very emotional time. Kate was very brave.’

It came just before the blonde beauty flew to Dubai for a holiday with husband Rio, where they enjoyed some ‘our much-needed time’.
MailOnline has reached out to a Kate representative with a comment.
Phil has previously defended his relationship with his daughter and reconnected with her just before her 2018 wedding where he walked her down the aisle.
Kate previously revealed that she was “very upset” when she was not invited to one of her father’s weddings at the age of nine.
The Essex native separated from the media personality’s mother, Jacqueline, when she was three.

Last year, the blonde beauty shared how her “disturbing” experiences with her stepmothers shaped her life with Rio’s “wonderful” children – who lost their mother Rebecca in May 2015 after a battle with cancer.
Growing up as an only child, Kate confessed that her relationships with her stepmothers were far from strong after her parents separated when she was a toddler.
She told You Magazine, “I’ve had a few stepmothers, but they weren’t really in my life.”

“My experience has helped shape how I want to treat Rio’s children and how I want them to see me.”
Phil has since defended his relationship with his daughter, insisting he was “not allowed” to invite Kate to one of his weddings, which took place nearly twenty years ago.
He decided to contact Kate after seeing her This Morning interview in May 2018, where she discussed the challenge of becoming a stepmother, and was later invited to the couple’s London mansion.
Phil told The sun: ‘It wasn’t just Kate who was upset that she didn’t go to my wedding. I wasn’t allowed to invite her.
“But it was never awkward between me and Kate, it was awkward between me and her mother.”

Kate showed off her post-baby body in a burgundy bikini as she enjoyed the holiday with her husband Rio on Sunday.
The pair have been on the outing for a while and certainly looked relaxed in the Instagram post shared by Kate.
She looked incredible in the photos as she slipped into a skimpy two-piece while relaxing by the pool.
Kate and the 42-year-old ex-footballer seemed as much loved as ever as they shared a kiss on the sunbeds in another photo, which she captioned: “Needs some American time.”
Another photo showed the couple in the mirror, where Rio appeared busy on his phone, while Kate wore a beautiful sarong, black scarf and a wicker beach bag.
The holiday comes after Kate recently revealed before and after photos of her first pregnancy as she gave fans another homely update on her life as a working mom, and the impact giving birth has had on her self-image.
