Husband Rio Ferdinand caught an intruder in their back garden and held him until cops arrived.
The ex-England ace, 44, saw the man at his South East London home and managed to hand him over to the police.
Rio, who has three children with late first wife Rebecca, and one boy with ex-Towie star Kate, owns the stunning mansion in an exclusive estate in the Home Counties.
His heavily pregnant wife Kate appeared on ITV's Lorraine today to talk about her new book, How To Build A Family, when she told presenter Lorraine Kelly that they were "all safe and well".
Kate, 31, added: "Thank you for asking."
