“Our relationship isn’t perfect, but please be gentle because we’ve been through a lot,” Katie said The sun in Friday.

Speaking about her daughter’s tumour, Katie said it had grown to the size of a ‘fist’ but she is receiving medical treatment and will most likely be gone by her first birthday.

“It grew enormously from when she was three weeks old to the size of a fist on the side of her face. It was affecting her vision because she couldn’t see out of one eye,” Katie said.

She added: “The truth is I suffered from severe baby blues and I can only say that being a mother has been one of the most difficult challenges I have ever faced in my life.”

Katie said her mental health had been so poor in recent months that she felt “anxiety” when she left the house.

She then went on to praise her fiance Harry and said that as a family they will “make it”, with the couple determined to put their daughter first.

Earlier this week, reports emerged that Katy had split from her fiance Harry just six months after the birth of their first child.

The Love Island star – who rose to fame during the show’s second season in 2016 and made history as one half of the show’s first same-sex couple with the late Sophie Gradon – shocked her Instagram followers by deleting all photos of Harry.

The new mum then took to her social media to claim she had ‘settled for far less’ than she deserved.

Katy, who got engaged to Harry last December, deleted pictures from the couple’s gender reveal party before the birth of their daughter Tyga, as well as a gushing tribute to her ex on his birthday.

Taking to her Instagram stories, she cryptically wrote: “Everything has changed for me since I had my little girl. It was one of the most difficult and beautiful journeys.

“I didn’t know I had the strength to go through everything I have this year. Women are super heroes idgaf [I don’t give a f***] The prize is her priceless smile and health.”

She continued in the lengthy post, “I’ve settled for much less than I deserve from so many people because I never respected who I was or what I was worth.

“My loyalty, love and energy are unmatched. The change was intense, but so eye-opening. I had to mourn someone I once was and allow the new me to emerge.

“If you can’t respect my growth, then you don’t deserve to be at our table. The upcoming changes are exciting to me, so if you’re struggling know that as painful as they are, they really are here to help you grow. [sic].

She later posted, “I love seeing people bounce back from messy situations to find the success, love, and bliss they deserve.”
