KATE Ferdinand has revealed the cheeky swipe her step-kids made about her and husband Rio.
The former reality star, 30, was showing off her rock-hard abs on holiday when she was given a "reality check".
She shared a screenshot of a message from one of her three step children - Lorenz, 14, Tate, 12, Tia, 10 - after sending them a picture of her and Rio.
The message read: "I said you look really nice Kate.
"Dad looks wrecked, you look a bit tired as well Kate."
Amused Kate captioned the post: "Can always count on the kids for a reality check."
The couple are having a well-earned break abroad nine months after the birth of their first son together, Cree.
Kate's being showing off her incredible post-baby body by the pool in Dubai on the luxury holiday.
Former The Only Way Is Essex star Kate, 30, is thought to be staying in the luxurious Burj Al Arab.
Kate posted a loving picture of the couple sharing a kiss as she lay about in the sunshine soaking up the rays next to dad-of-three Rio, 42.
A second snap saw the star show off her stunning post baby-body in a tiny two-piece - keeping her face shaded with a large sunhat.
