The unique name is a gender-neutral choice meaning “admirable”.

The couple are also parents to their two year old son Cree and Kate is step-mum to Rio’s three children from his first marriage, Lorenz, 16, Tate, 14 and Tia, 11.

Kate and Rio announced they were expecting their second child together back in January.

The mum of one took to her Instagram with a black and white video where she could be seen with her back to the camera in a long neutral coat.

As she walked away, she turned and revealed her bump as she cradled her growing tummy and smiled at the camera.

She captioned the post: “We’ve been praying for you.”

The couple announced their romance back in 2017 and got engaged the following year. 

In 2019 Kate and Rio married in 2019 and the couple welcomed their first child together in December 2020.
