Kate has posted a string of photos where her tummy isn’t on show, and she’s expertly hidden it behind her kids in snaps.
She’s also used savvy Instagram angles too, facing the other way for photos so as to not reveal her bump.
Most noticeably the star hasn’t posted as much as normal of herself, and instead recently shared videos, including her son having a bath and of her podcast.
When she has posted herself on her social media, she’s wearing clothes that conceal the bump – including oversized blazers.
In her most recent snaps at Christmas, Kate was seen with her son on her lap and in another she posed with Rio but wore a large cream blazer.
Kate – who is also step-mum to Rio's three children Lorenz, 16, Tate, 14, and Tia, 11 – was glowing as she revealed her blossoming belly.
