And Kate Ferdinand flaunted her baby bump in a black bikini while cozying up with husband Rio on their recent family vacation.
The former TOWIE star, 32, who is expecting her second child with the former footballer, 44, was soaking up the sun on the beach.
She showed off her blossoming belly in a black bikini top and sheer sarong as she enjoyed a day relaxing in the sun.
Rio always looked like the supportive husband as he started kissing her on the forehead and flaunting his shirtless physique in black and white shorts.

Also on Wednesday, she gave a mini life update on her pregnancy as she shared how she’s hit the 34-week mark.
She said in the chat, “I’m really ready not to be pregnant right now!” I’m very hot and tired and we have such a busy few weeks ahead of us.
“I’m ready to meet her now. But I still have a lot to prepare.”
Kate is currently expecting her second child with Rio. They already share a son Cree, two.
Kate is also a stepmother to Rio’s children Lorenz, 16, Tate, 14, and Tia, 12 – who he shared with Rebecca Ellison before she died of breast cancer in 2015, aged just 34.
Her latest post comes just days after Kate revealed her exact due date in a Q&A on her Instagram account.

Last week Kate was asked, “How long before bubbas is due. Exciting times’, to which she replied: ‘Eight more weeks and the belly is growing fast.’
Alongside the photo, Kate shared a photo of her growing belly in a crop top and sweatpants, proudly showing off her belly.
Elsewhere in the Q&A, Kate revealed that she and Rio have only just mustered up the courage to start kissing in front of their kids, six years after getting together.
Kate shared how she and Rio started a no-kissing rule when they were in front of his three children from his late wife Rebecca.
Kate said her entire relationship with Rio was not romantic at first due to the complications of his children from his first marriage.
She shared how she and Rio made sure the kids didn’t mind their early “dates” together by limiting themselves to half-hour visits to the pub.
Speaking about how she and Rio had to be sensitive about their relationship in the beginning because of the kids, Kate said, “We didn’t have the whole honeymoon.

“It went straight out ‘fine, we have kids and if we’re going to make this work, we’re all in on it.’
“So the romance was pretty dead because there’s three kids, they lost their mother, you think about so much, you just want to get it right.”
“I don’t feel like I was there all the time, and when I was there I was fun. And absolutely no kissing. We said this the other day – I said “we don’t kiss that much in front of the kids”.
“I said, ‘It’s because we were so conscious in the beginning not to do it, not to worry them or make them uncomfortable, that all of a sudden we went through with it.’
“So we’re starting to peck a little bit. We go “Oh, give us a kiss – Urgh, disgusting”. But we are now six years later.’
