Cat and Patrick have welcomed a baby boy

Cat later revealed that her she was afraid of how her little boy will react to being a big brother – so much so that she hadn’t told him. Talking to chat show host Steve Harvey, she said: "He gave me a black eye, he hit me with the ukulele – and it went all black and yellow and purple, he then threw sand in the eye so I went blind for ten minutes! So I'm really hoping this child survives! I haven’t told Milo yet about the pregnancy yet." It seems all is well however, judging by their loving statement about Milo and little James.
