‘While this Holiday season will look different for us all, this little ornament my sister Christina got us, and the experience of our daughters first Christmas is a big silver lining of joy and light for me,’ she captioned.

Katherine shared a photo of the ornament, which had ‘first Christmas’ written on the front of it and was shaped like a baby resting inside a stocking.

She continued: ‘2020 has been a crazy year, it’s not what any of us expected; it’s been filled with a lot of challenging times and unpredictable twists and turns.’

Despite the challenges, Katherine admitted that 2020 has ‘been a year of immense joy for those of us who have welcomed life into the world.’
