Daily Star - - NEWS - by JERRY LAW­TON

RIO fi­ancée ad­mits Fer­di­nand’s she Kate has Wright crip­pling anx­i­ety and finds “most days a bat­tle”.

De­spite liv­ing a life of lux­ury the for­mer Towie star is haunted by self-doubt.

KATE Wright has ad­mit­ted she is crip­pled with anx­i­ety and finds “most days a bat­tle” de­spite her mil­lion­aire’s life­style with ex-foot­baller fi­ancé Rio Fer­di­nand.

The for­mer re­al­ity TV celeb quit Towie and be­came a full­time mother to the ex-Eng­land and Manch­ester United star’s three chil­dren.

They fell in love two years af­ter his wife Re­becca’s death from breast cancer.

Since then Kate, 27, has posted a stream of pho­tos to her 900,000 In­sta­gram fol­low­ers show­ing her beam­ing with hap­pi­ness in ex­otic lo­ca­tions around the world.

The cou­ple sealed their love when Rio, 40, popped the ques­tion in Abu Dhabi three months ago.

Kate told fans it was the “per­fect end to our hol­i­day”, adding: “How could the an­swer not be yes?”

But now she has con­ceded real life is not as glam­orous as her In­sta­gram ac­count sug­gests.

Bat­tle

She ad­mit­ted to be­ing haunted by self-doubt and told of strug­gles to love her­self.

Kate said she had been so fo­cussed on “mak­ing sure every­one else is OK” she had ne­glected her­self. And she said: “This year I am work­ing on me.”

In a bomb­shell on­line an­nounce­ment, she wrote: “One of my New Year’s res­o­lu­tions is to ac­cept my­self, some­thing I have strug­gled with.

“Any­one that knows me well knows I suf­fer with bad anx­i­ety and re­ally strug­gle to love my­self.

“Most days are a bat­tle with what’s go­ing on in my head.

“I’ve sort of kept this off so­cial me­dia as I’ve been to scared to share it, and the less I shared the more dis­tant In­sta­gram is from my daily life.”

But she vowed: “That’s go­ing to change this year. I’m go­ing to give more of the ups and downs, not just the fun times.”

The lat­est rev­e­la­tions are sure to shock Kate’s army of fol­low­ers – who pre­vi­ously be­lieved she led a dream life­style.
