Lottie showcased her sensational style in a white figure-hugging midi dress, teamed with a black cropped blazer and a fresh pair of Nike air force.

Lottie shared the stunning snaps with her 4.4 million Instagram followers and captioned the post: ‘loveliest chat with the loveliest person @xkateferdinand for @blended talking all things grief’
Kate also shared a snippet from the new episode of her podcast and wrote: ‘She has been through so much losing her mum & sister in such a short space of time!
‘We had a lovely chat & it was so nice to see how well she is doing now, she really is a very strong young woman & being pregnant with her baby boy has come at exactly the right time. New life is such a blessing’

Lottie – who is half-sister to singer Louis Tomlinson – is expecting a new arrival this year with her ex-tennis player partner.
In the teaser video the entrepreneur gave advice to people struggling with grief, based off her own personal experience.
She said: ‘What I always say is allow yourself to feel whatever you’re feeling and it works both ways

Lottie continued: ‘Sometimes when I felt happy and good I would feel guilty and question why do I feel like this but then you have you’re down days and I felt I should have just enjoyed when I was happy and ok
‘On the flip side if you’re feeling down or having a bad day just allow that to happen because it’s easy to try and mask those emotions because it’s too painful
‘But when you can face emotions you should as you have such a better chance at healing and getting to a better place with it, give yourself time’

Kate launched her support platform Blended in December, which is as network for families meshed together by ‘a break up, fostering, adopting, loss’ or other circumstances, following her own experiences as a step-parent.
Kate married Rio in 2019, four years after his wife Rebecca Ellison died in 2015, two years after being diagnosed with breast cancer.
She detailed the difficulties she faced when she became step-mother to her husband Rio’s kids, Lorenz, 15, Tate, 13, and Tia, 10, and how their family has been made complete by her biological son Cree, 12 months.
Family: This comes after the star recently launched her own support platform for families meshed together by fostering, adopting, loss or other circumstances, following her own experiences as a step-parent.
