The quote read: 'Cry, let that water go. You were drowning.'

Rio and Kate's relationship soon became serious and she moved into the family home and treated the children like her own - so she was devastated to be forgotten for a Mother's Day card.
Speaking on her Blended podcast, the reality star, who now shares a son Cree two with Rio, and is pregnant with their second child, said: 'I wasn't a biological mum. I think it was our first Mother's Day - maybe I'd been living here about six months, something like that.
'And although I wasn't a biological mum I kind of felt like I'd taken on the mum role. For me, going from living at home on my own to taking the kids to school, cooking them dinner, I felt like a mum.'
Speaking to Rio - who had also lost his own mother Janice in 2017 - she continued: 'I really thought I might get a card from you, and I didn't get a card from you.
'I felt bad to express that in front of you because you guys had lost your mum, and the kids have lost their mum. So I just went in my room and I just sobbed my heart out - seriously.
'And then I felt selfish for wanting a card - how dare I want a card? So anyone that's kind of new in this situation might feel like that because it's a weird one - 'I wasn't a biological parent so how could I expect that? But I felt like a mum.'
Kate also told how for the first few years after Rebecca's death, the family would go to the cemetery to remember Rebecca on Mother's Days and other significant anniversaries.
She added: 'I think we've got to the stage now of Mother's Day, where it might have been five or six years, that we kind of are a bit more used to doing occasions together. We all know how everyone feels and what to expect from
