She adores being a mum, and regularly delights fans with her posts which give a glimpse into their fun-filled family life. 

But Kate said she thinks it’s important that people know it’s not perfect.

"I always think it also might be the number-one misconception of my personality, you know, is that I'm just always happy," she revealed during the most recent episode of Instyle's Ladies First with Laura Brown

Kate made reference to her difficult relationship with her estranged dad, Bill Hudson, but said she refuses to dwell on that.

"What is life worth living if you can't enjoy it?"
