Inside Kate and Rio Ferdinand’s first Christmas with baby Cree and kids – as she reveals all ahead of ‘magical’ day

KATE Ferdinand is busy getting ready to celebrate Christmas with her new family after last year's was a “blur”.

The former Towie star had just given birth to her first son Cree with husband Rio Ferdinand in December last year.

“Last Christmas was all a bit of a blur to be honest, I think I just got out of hospital a couple of days before,” Kate told us exclusively.

“I love to just be silly and crazy and dance around do fun things with the kids and I couldn't do that last year.”

So for Kate this year will be even more special because she's “looking forward to doing that this year and all being together.”

On whether her almost one-year-old will appreciate the big day or not, Kate's sure he'll have fun either way.

“I'm not sure if he'll understand but I think he'll like the wrapping paper,” she said.

“He loves wrapping paper just chucking that about so I'm a bit worried about the Christmas tree going up because I'm sure he'll be putting everything.”

On the specifics of the family's Christmas day, the Ferdinands are opting for something a little more low-key.

“We're just going to have Christmas day at home this year. Maybe see some family in the afternoon?” Kate explained.

“Haven't really organised much to be honest. But yeah, at home, maybe PJs in the morning and get dressed afterwards.

“I force them all into matching pyjamas. The teenage boys aren't too keen on that but Tia and Cree love it.”

Kate became stepmother to Rio's children Lorenz, 15, Tate, 13, and 10-year-old Tia from his first marriage and said being a mum makes her appreciate Christmas more.

“Since having the children, being with them, Christmas is so special with kids,” Kate admitted.

“I think when you're, grown up and there's no children. It's not as fun. I just love watching the kids run down open the presents, it's just really magical.”

Kate's getting ready for the Christmas season by teaming up with Aptamil Follow On Milk Ready To Drink and their 'Hackvent' campaign to help families with 'hacks' to make the coming weeks easier.

“As parents, we are just always running around, trying to fit everything in. And I just loved the campaign because it's just about trying to make life easier over the festive period and small little hacks to give you more time with your family,” Kate said.

“One of my favourite hacks I use all year round. It's like just prepping the food before, so while the baby has a nap, I'll be peeling the potatoes and getting food prepared the night before for the Christmas dinner.

“So you have more time actually on Christmas day to spend with the family.”
