Rio Ferdinand and wife Kate Ferdinand made a guest appearance on This Morning today, ahead of the release of the new doc Rio and Kate: Becoming a Stepfamily.
The newlyweds, who tied the knot last year, opened up about their relationship while chatting to hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.
Digging for answers, Holly asked about the lovebirds' plans to have a child together.
Hinting at their children's demands for a new little one in the house, she said: "What they do want is a baby brother or sister."
Kate and Rio agreed the kids constantly beg them for a new sibling – but remained tight-lipped on their own views.
