“They’ll say ‘I’m watching the best of YouTube’ and I go in and they have an old episode of me and it’s me crying or something!”

Speaking about taking on the role of a stepmother, she explained, “I didn’t think about it too deeply, but when I was walking the road, I found that there were a lot of difficult moments.”
‘The kids have been through a lot, Rio has been through a lot, it’s a lot to take on, and I really felt like I needed to talk to people and didn’t know who to turn to.
“I felt like no one I knew had been through something similar. I am very grateful to be able to share my experience and help people.’

She added: ‘I fell for it, you have to. I’m a bit of an organized freak.
‘It can be good to get everyone in line, but it can be a bad thing because sometimes you need to let go and go with the flow.
It is the best job in the world. When you have children you appreciate everything but they are very exhausting and exhausting. A complete roller coaster!
Kate also touched on her journey towards self-acceptance, revealing: “I was always trying to look at other people and think, ‘oh, they’re doing this, I should be doing this,’ whatever everyone’s doing, comparing.” .
‘Now I’m just okay with being me. I’m not going to be the smartest, I’m not going to be the prettiest, but it’s me and that’s enough.
“That’s a journey, it takes time, and sometimes I still don’t love myself and I beat myself up.”
