‘It was a very emotional time:’ Kate Ferdinand ‘rushed to hospital after her ex-father suffered health problems’ before flying to Dubai for vacation
Kate Ferdinand should have rushed to hospital after her ex-father suffered a health crisis last week.
The former TOWIE star, 30, – who is married to footballer Rio Ferdinand – was due to attend a family wedding at the time, but was forced to leave her family and rush to see dad Phil, 61, according to The Sun.
A source told the publication: “It was a very emotional time. Kate was very courageous.
Oh my God: Kate Ferdinand should have rushed to hospital after ex-dad suffered health issues last week
It happened just before the blonde beauty flew to Dubai for a vacation with her husband Rio, where they took in “much needed time”.
A representative for Kate has been contacted by TUSEN for comment.
Phil has already defended his relationship with his daughter and reconnected with her just before her 2018 nuptials where he accompanied her down the aisle.
Kate had previously revealed that she was “very upset” when she was not invited to one of her father’s weddings when she was nine.
The Essex native split from media personality Jacqueline’s mother when she was three.

Last year, the blonde beauty opened up about how her ‘life-changing’ experiences with her stepmothers shaped her life with Rio’s ‘amazing’ children – who lost their mother Rebecca in May 2015 after a battle with cancer.
Growing up as an only child, Kate confessed that her relationship with her stepmothers was far from strong after her parents split up when she was very young.
She told You Magazine: “I have had a few stepmothers, but they weren’t really in my life.”

“My experience has helped me define how I want to treat the children of Rio and how I want them to see me.”
Phil has since defended his relationship with his daughter and insisted he “wasn’t allowed” to invite Kate to one of his weddings, which took place nearly two decades ago.
He decided to contact Kate after watching her This Morning interview in May 2018, where she discussed the challenge of becoming a stepmom, and was later invited to the couple’s London mansion.
Phil told The Sun: “It wasn’t just Kate who was upset that she didn’t go to my wedding. I was not allowed to invite him.
“But it was never awkward between me and Kate, it was awkward between me and her mom.”

Kate showed off her post-baby body in a burgundy bikini as she enjoyed the vacation with her husband Rio on Sunday.
The couple embarked on the getaway for a while and certainly looked relaxed in the Instagram post shared by Kate.
She looked amazing in the photos as she slipped into a skinny two-piece while relaxing by the pool.
Kate and the 42-year-old former footballer seemed more loved than ever while sharing a kiss on lounge chairs in another wink, which she captioned: “Some much needed time in the US.”
Another photo showed the pair in the mirror, where Rio looked busy on her phone, while Kate sported a stunning sarong, black shawl and a straw beach bag.
The vacation comes after Kate recently revealed before and after snaps from her first pregnancy as she gave fans another domestic update on her life as a working mom and the impact of childbirth on her image of self.
