Kate explained she opted for a natural birth and admitted it was the 'hardest, most unbelievably painful thing I've ever done'.

'After a very hectic birth, I was whisked away for theatre surgery - I genuinely think James and I are a tad traumatised,' she wrote of her partner. 

She said James could only visit for two hours a day due to covid-19 restrictions and said she has a 'slow and long recovery ahead.'

She added she now has a 'whole new level of respect for mums.'

'He's gorgeous and healthy but far out Brussels sprout... this s**t is not for the faint hearted. But we survived,' she added in the post. 

Kate stepped away from the spotlight during her pregnancy.

She hasn't publicly revealed the identity of her child's father, but it's understood she is in a relationship. 

She celebrated Mother's Day earlier this year and said 'my love bought me flowers' as a gift.

'House is a mess, eating cookies off bump, my love bought me flowers and I smashed in my Pilates,' she wrote on Instagram.

'If this is mum life, count me in!'
