She gave birth to their beautiful daughter that same year, on New Year’s Eve which the lovebirds named Pfeiffer.

Speaking in 2020, Helen said: “Lockdown has been mostly positive. I think the negative is that Pfeiffer thinks there’s only two people in her world.”

Kate added: “There is!

“Lockdown brought its challenges but if we’re honest, it’s been really nice being able to spend time together, which we wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise.

“It’s been really lovely to see Pfeiffer growing every day. She’s on the move, commando crawling across the floor at the moment – she’s pretty speedy.
