The socialite and model married her husband Michael Lewis in 2019, but kept news of her pregnancy a complete secret. She only surprised fans with the announcement she had welcomed a baby on Mother’s Day, some months after she had her daughter. At the time, she wrote, ‘It’s the joy of my life to be your mummy, little one. I love you unconditionally. Happy Mother’s Day to those who celebrate today.’

Since then, she has released just a few photographs with her daughter, keeping her face hidden in snaps and her name a total secret.

This weekend, she posted a black-and-white image with the little girl as the pair relaxed at home. She wrote, ‘Athena watching the world go by.’ The photograph, which was taken by London-based photographer Susheel Schroeder, and shows the mother and daughter duo gazing out of the window side-by-side. In the snap, Lady Kitty can be seen kissing her daughter’s head while the little girl looks out while balancing on her tip toes.

Lady Kitty Spencer has spent the last few years away from the public eye. She went public with her relationship with Lewis in 2019, with the South African businessman proposing over Christmas that year. Their wedding was initially delayed due to Covid-19 before they celebrated with a lavish occasion in Italy in 2021.

The bride wore a series of Dolce & Gabbana gowns for the occasion. Other guests included Jade Holland Cooper, the Marchioness of Bath, Pixie Lott and of course, Lady Kitty’s glamorous younger twin sisters, Ladies Amelia and Eliza Spencer.

Following the multi-day celebration (which saw Lady Kitty adorned in a wardrobe of D&G creations), the newlyweds embarked on a honeymoon which was documented by press around the world.

After disappearing from the spotlight, Lady Kitty has made a handful of public appearances over the last few months. In April, she joined a host of other celebrities including Demi Moore and Rosie Huntington-Whitley to attend a celebration for Dolce & Gabbana’s 40th anniversary at Palazzo Reale in Milan.

Arriving at the celebration at the Palazzo Reale, the beautiful mother-of-one opted for a floor length black gown, which featured a plunging neckline and high slit in the hemline. She paired with dark look with a glittering set of ruby and turquoise jewels, which she wore in a decadent necklace and drop earrings.

And last month, she joined her sisters Lady Amelia and Lady Eliza Spencer for a trip to Venice. Wearing an elegant white trouser suit, she paired the look with a trendy matching waistcoat and suede tan heels. The mother-of-one swept her blonde hair behind her ears, opting for minimal gold jewelry and a soft smoky eye for the occasion. Posting the images on her Instagram page, Lady Kitty wrote it had been ‘a beautiful Venetian evening’.
