Former British model and businesswoman Katie Price is the doting mother of 5 children, and she has been married and divorced three times.
Being the mother of five is the most important part of Katie Price's life. The 42-year-old reality star shares her children with three men: former Manchester United football player Dwight Yorke, singer Peter Andre, and Kieran Hayler.
Katie welcomed her first child, son Harvey Price at the age of 24. But shortly after his birth, Katie learned that her baby boy was partially blind, with septo-optic dysplasia.

Katie found herself a single mom, since her child's father, Dwight Yorke, admitted that he had been unfaithful to her during her pregnancy. Yorke has not been present in Harvey's life since his birth.
But Katie had several more challenges ahead. Her boy was subsequently diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum. Doctors also discovered he suffered from Prader-Willi syndrome, which can cause slow development and obesity.
In 2005, Katie married her costar in "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! " singer Peter Andre, and the couple welcomed their first child, son Junior Savva Andreas, who is now 15.
Two years later, Katie and Andre welcomed their second baby Princess Tiaamii. Sadly, in 2009, the couple lost their third child in a heartbreaking 10-week miscarriage. A month later, the couple separated.
In 2012 Katie met and started dating Kieran Hayler, an actor and male stripper.
Shortly after her divorce, Katie, now the mother of three, started dating actor and MMA fighter Alex Reid, and the two married in Las Vegas in February 2010 after a whirlwind romance.
But after a brief year of marriage, the successful designer filed for a divorce from Reid claiming unreasonable behavior as a foundation. Their divorce was granted and final in 2012. Katie was alone again.
In 2012 Katie met and started dating Kieran Hayler, an actor and male stripper, and in January 2013 the couple married in the romantic tropical Bahamas and welcomed their first child together, son Jett, seven months later.
A year later, Katie and Hayler grew their family yet again and welcomed their daughter, Bunny. But once again, happiness eluded Katie, and Hayler was unfaithful many times before she filed for a divorce in 2019.
Katie did not give up on love and started dating handsome 29-year-old fitness instructor Kris Boyson. The two became engaged, but the romance was short-lived.
Katie called off the engagement, but it wasn't long before she found someone to help her mend her bruised and battered heart. She started dating reality star and "Love Island" alum, Carl Woods.
LOVE AT LAST
Katie and Woods have revealed that they are planning to have a child together -- which will be the former model's sixth child. Meanwhile, Katie has been facing
She began dating Carl Woods that same year and they are now actively trying to conceive her sixth child. Katie has revealed that Woods has been by her side through the recent challenges of coping with 5 children during the COVID-19 quarantine.
Since Harvey is at high risk if he should contract COVID, Katie has been forced to be away from her other four children, and to homeschool him through the pandemic. She confessed:
"In that respect, I'm struggling — it's been a month since I've seen them. But I can't risk Harvey."
Katie's biggest challenge is keeping Harvey healthy and active, especially since his condition tends to increase his weight. The devoted mom is looking forward to the end of the COVID crisis, and to having her family together again.
Katie is also dealing with her worry over her mother Amy's health. Amy has been suffering from a chronic respiratory illness, which the reality star fears may be terminal.
