Businesswoman and former glamour model Katie Price opens up about her surprise pregnancy – and fears for her unborn baby’s safety…
Katie Price is six months pregnant with her fifth child.
The former glamour model, 35, discovered she was expecting after a holiday in Cape Verde with husband Kieran Hayler, 27.
Katie had stomach pains while away so decided to take a pregnancy test, and says she was shocked to see it turn positive.
But the biggest surprise came at a scan the next day – which showed she was six months along.
‘We were lying there and Kieran had Jett [the couple’s nine-month-old son], then this picture flashed up on the screen and we saw this enormous baby,’ she tells Now magazine.
‘I was in shock, he was in shock – even the doctor was in shock… none of us could actually believe it.’
The day after the scan, Katie was in the supermarket and had strong pains.
Terrified she might be losing her baby, especially as her son Jett was born two months early, she saw her doctor but thankfully ‘everything’s fine’ now. Although it’s unclear exactly what happened, she explains she’s on medication for the next few weeks.

Despite her fear that her baby will still come early, Katie reveals her three older children – Harvey, Junior and Princess – are ‘completely excited’ about having a brother or sister.
‘We’ve gone through such swings of emotions so it feels now we can all start really getting excited,’ she says.
‘This baby is going to be in the same school year as Jett because there’ll be less than 12 months between them. It’s completely crazy.’
While we're obviously so happy for Katie and Kieran, the thought of having two babies in a year fills most of us with a little bit of dread - prep your toddler for a brother or sister with these tips and tell us your age gap on the comments board below!
