‘They think it’s hilarious’: Kate Ferdinand reveals her stepkids are trying to ‘raise’ her by playing old TOWIE episodes where she cries

The 31-year-old reality star first appeared on the ITVBe show in 2015 but quit two years later after finding love with Rio Ferdinand.

Now Kate has revealed Rio’s cheeky children Lorenz, 15, Tate, 13 and 11-year-old Tia are teasing them by re-enacting the emotional scenes.
Speaking on the Vicky Pattison: The Secret To podcast, she revealed, “The kids are real teasers!
“They’ll say, ‘I’m watching the best stuff on YouTube,’ and I come in and they’ve got an old episode of me and I’m crying or something!”
She added: “When they do that to me – it’s not the way I speak, the way I hold myself – everything about me is different. It’s like a different person and they think it’s hilarious!’

The former TOWIE star is mother to 16-month-old Cree with Rio and step-mother to the retired footballer’s three children from his first marriage to Rebecca Ellison, who died of breast cancer in 2015 aged 34.
Speaking about the stepmother role, she explained, “I didn’t think about it too much, but as I went on the journey, I realized there were a lot of difficult moments.
“The kids have been through a lot, Rio has been through a lot, there’s a lot to deal with and I really felt like I needed to talk to people and I didn’t know who to turn to.
“I felt like no one I knew had gone through anything similar. I am so thankful to be able to share my experience and help people.”

She added: “I fell in, you have to. I’m quite an organizational freak.
“It can be a good thing to get everyone aligned, but it can also be a bad thing because sometimes you have to let go and go with the flow.
“It’s the best job ever. When you have children, you appreciate everything, but they are very tiring and exhausting. A complete rollercoaster ride!’
Kate also addressed her journey to self-acceptance, revealing, “I’ve always tried to look at other people and think, ‘Oh they’re doing this, I should be doing this’, whatever everyone’s doing, compare.
“Now I’m just OK with being me. I won’t be the smartest, I won’t be the prettiest, but I am me and that’s good enough.
“It’s a journey, it takes time and sometimes I still don’t love myself and I beat myself up.”
