Kate Ferdinand, wife of popular ex footballer, Rio Ferdinand, portrayed the love between a father and his daughter when she left all she was doing to rush to her estranged father’s bed side at the hospital, despite their differences.
Sometime last week, The Sun reported that Kate had to cancel every of her engagement just to be by her estranged father’s bedside at the hospital. She also missed attending her housekeeper’s son’s wedding in Cheshire to visit her father in the hospital.
Although, not having the best relationship with her dad, she put their issues aside when she heard he was in need of medical attention.
A source close to Kate revealed the reason why the former TOWIE star and her dad, Phil, fell out, and the circumstances surrounding her visiting him at the hospital.
“Kate hasn’t spoken to her dad for a long time,” the source said. “They had a fall out because she wasn’t invited to his wedding. They’ve only just rekindled their relationship.
“She’d just started to feel more herself and she was finding her feet after having the baby, and then her dad was taken to hospital with a health scare.
“She felt like she had to because underneath, she does feel a bit guilty about not speaking to him for so long.
“If anything happened to him she wouldn’t be able to forgive herself. But hopefully, he’ll be OK.”
The source continued, : “It was a very emotional time. Kate was very brave.
In conclusion, the source said that “She was happy to be at his side.”
Kate who’s married to Rio Ferdinand, shares a son Cree with him. She is also a proud step-mum to Rio’s older three children, Lorenz, 14, Tate, 12, and 10-year-old Tia.
Presently, Kate and Ferdinand are on a holiday in Dubai, having a lovely family time.
