Throughout her pregnancy, Kate maintained her privacy but as the premieres of ‘The Traitors’ and ‘Below Deck Galley Talk’ approached, it became increasingly challenging to keep her baby bump hidden from the world. With her due date fast approaching, Kate made the decision to reveal her pregnancy in December 2022, sharing her joy and excitement with her fans. And now, with the arrival of Sullivan, she has embarked on a new adventure of single motherhood.

Kate will be embarking on the challenging journey of parenthood all on her own. Although Kate had some high-profile romances in the past, she is fiercely independent and eager to raise her child in her own way. “I’m fiercely independent,” Kate admitted on Page Six’s Virtual Reali-Tea podcast on January 24, 2023. “I don’t really love people’s opinions being different than mine, and trying to make me go their way. So I really am so excited that I’ll be able to do this exactly how I want to.”
Kate exclusively shared with E! News about her pregnancy ahead of ‘The Traitors’ premiere, expressing her excitement and great feelings about being pregnant. “I feel so great,” she shared. “I have my own little baby traitor holding me hostage for four more months.” However, the Bravo star admits that she is most nervous about the part of welcoming a newborn that will interrupt her love for sleeping in and her lazy and selfish tendencies. “Honestly, I like sleeping in and I’m also kind of lazy and selfish, so I feel like that’s gonna be an adjustment,” she joked. “But I just figure if I love this child as much as I love my dog, everything will be fine, and people are assuring me that I will.”
