Katie Price has revealed that she is pregnant with her third child.

Katie, most well-known as her glamour modelling alter-ego Jordan, had a miscarriage in July this year and was worried about annoucing the pregnancy so soon but felt the stress of keeping it a secret would be worse.

Katie told OK magazine that her pregnancy was confirmed last week and the baby is due next summer: “Because I had the miscarriage earlier this year, I’m really scared.”

“I was relieved [that I was able to get pregnant] but shocked because I thought I’ve just got over the miscarriage… When we heard the heartbeat it was like: ‘Ahhh, that’s good, it’s there and everything is fine’.”

Her husband Peter Andre added that on hearing the news he “was just so thrilled because of everything we went through with the miscarriage.”

The couple already have an 18 month old son together, Junior, and Katie also has a four year old son, Harvey from a previous relationship. Last month, Katie expressed a wish for three more children and to adopt a sixth.
