'Big Brother' star Kate Lawler misses her parents as she prepares to welcome her first child
Kate Lawler has admitted she misses her mum and dad amid the pandemic.
The former 'Big Brother' star – who is expecting her first child with fiance Martin – got emotional whilst struggling to build a Moses basket for her little one and revealed she hasn't seen her parents in three months due to the coronavirus crisis.
Speaking on her Instagram Stories, she cried: "I miss my mum and dad... This pandemic can seriously do one."
She captioned the video: "I'm blaming hormones for crying over a Moses basket stand".
Kate later took to social media again to thank her fans for their support and she confessed she was getting "freaked out" knowing her due date was around the corner.
She said: "I got very emotional last night on Instagram, but thank you for all the messages. I think my hormones are raging.
"I think I'm starting to get freaked out now. I'm starting to worry, I unpacked a lot of baby paraphernalia yesterday and it's suddenly started to get really real.
"I'm starting to question have we made the right decision, am I going to be a good mum, what if I accidentally hurt the baby… I can't even keep a basil plant alive. You know what I mean?"
Meanwhile, the 40-year-old star previously revealed via Instagram that she and Martin – who she calls Boj – have had to self-isolate after coming into contact with someone who tested positive for the virus.
She explained: "The past 7 days have been a rollercoaster of emotions starting with a hospital scan last Wednesday, where we were told Boj could come the day before, but when we arrived he wasn't allowed in due to Covid restrictions.
"I then spoke to a consultant via video link on Monday who informed me there is a possibility that Boj won’t be allowed to attend the birth in February. "This was followed by the lockdown announcement from Boris.
"Now today, we've both been pinged by our NHS test and trace apps saying we've come into contact with somebody who's tested positive for the virus and we both have to self-isolate.
"It's one of those weeks where everything seems to be happening at once I guess and I really am trying to stay positive but it's difficult. (sic)"
