Captioning the snaps, she joked that her football star husband should also don a bunny ensemble – but that she’d be ‘pushing her luck’ if she requested this of him.
She wrote: ‘Happy Easter everyone… We have had such a lovely day ☺️ we celebrated a day early, because of lots of football tomorrow.
‘I wish I could get all the big ones (including Rio) in matching bunny outfits but I just about get away with the matching Christmas pjs! Don’t wanna push my luck … so just Cree for now. Hope you all have a lovely long Easter weekend ☺️.’
However, come Easter Sunday morning, Kate appeared to be in a less-than-celebratory mood, as she shared a picture of a bowl of potatoes being soaked.

Earlier this month Kate revealed she doesn’t love her postpartum body.
She said: ‘Let’s talk post pregnancy body. I’ve really held off on uploading any pictures with my body in because last time I did, for some reason, I felt all types of nerves and ended up deleting it … hormones, or the pressure of Instagram to look a certain way? Who knows, but either way, I’ve finally plucked up the courage. Here I am.
‘I’m finally starting to slowly feel more like “me” again, but it hasn’t been plain sailing. I was seeing lots of ladies, and I salute you, saying they love and embrace their post pregnancy body; I wish I felt like that but in all honesty …
‘I love that my body produced our baby BUT quite frankly, I don’t love my post baby body. I miss feeling fit & strong!’

The former TOWIE star recently admitted she feels ‘nervous’ about what to wear post-lockdown after her body ‘changed’ following the birth of son.
Kate asked her followers: ‘Anyone else been nervous about what to wear when lockdown is over? I’ve been wearing leggings for 4 months straight!
‘My body has changed since having the baby and I’ve really been stuck with what to wear so I decided to have a big try on and get myself together…
‘Anyone else struggle with what to wear post baby, I just feel like a different woman!’
The reality star also recently revealed that she chose not to breastfeed her son but was worried about admitting it.
Kate said she feels there is ‘so much pressure’ on women to breastfeed and that she was hesitant to admit that she decided to bottle feed instead.
She said: ‘Me and my bubba. I just love it when he looks at me when I’m feeding him.
‘I chose not to breastfeed Cree, for so many reasons and I was worried about admitting it at first as their is so much pressure to breastfeed, but thankfully now I just know that a fed baby is a happy baby and Cree is the happiest little soul and we are so grateful.’
