Kate’s road to motherhood wasn’t easy. In June 2013, a month after giving birth to her and Jamie’s daughter, the actress said on prenatal-focused chiropractor Dr. Elliot Berlin‘s Informed Pregnancy podcast that shortly before conceiving her little girl, she had had a first pregnancy that ended with a blighted ovum, a type of early miscarriage.
Kate also experienced complications while pregnant with her daughter. In her third trimester, she developed cholestasis, a liver condition. She was induced and underwent an emergency C-section after three days of labor, emmy magazine reported in 2020.
Then, when her little girl was only 2 months old, the actress began production on the Hulu mini-series A Teacher. “I find it quite easy to switch it on and off,” Kate told the outlet. “Thank God, because as a new mom, when you have a baby on your boob, screaming in the trailer, and then you’ve got to go pretend to be sexy, it’s kind of a complete nightmare. But it was also not, you know what I mean? Because I have this little angel baby.”
