The blonde bombshell is already a mum to two and a half year old son Cree which she shares with her footballing hubby.
She is also an amazing step mum to the sportsman's three older children Lorenz, 16, Tate, 14, and Tia, 11, from his marriage to his late wife Rebecca.
It didn't take long before her famous friends and loyal fans flooded to the comments section to congratulate her on the joyous news.
Vicky Pattison penned: "OMG babe! Congratulations [heart eyes emoji]" as Molly-Mae Hague echoed: "Congratulations Kate [white heart emoji]."
Georgia Kousoulou chimed in with: "Awww so, so happy for you [four heart emojis, heart eyes emoji]."
It comes after Kate revealed in September that she had suffered a devastating miscarriage back in July.
The mum explained how she learnt she was pregnant again the day before her birthday and the whole family had been "so excited" to have a sibling close in age to Cree.
"We thought it would be lovely for him to have a little friend running around. The kids clocked on this time so we told them and some family this time."
Speaking on her podcast Blended, the loving mum opened up about the moment she realised her pregnancy wasn't progressing at it's usual rate.
After attending an emergency hospital appointment, the star confessed she "burst into tears" after she saw the sonographer's face when she was told there was no heartbeat.
She told listeners: "We went to lunch before the 12-week scan and there was blood there and I felt like God was giving me a sign. We were literally leaving to go to the scan.
"We both tried to pretend it wasn't happening and it was fine. It was the longest walk ever to the hospital I felt like I knew and someone was preparing me. I just had to look at the lady's face. It was awful, I just burst into tears.
"I wasn't prepared for what happens afterwards. We had planned how to tell everyone. We had filmed the kids and were going to go home and put it on social media.
"I just wanted to get out of the room but also thought of leaving the room terrified me because I have to go and tell the children and go home and act normal.

"It was really hard when you're grieving a loss that no one else can see," she added.
