Katie Price: don’t believe the lies, I love being a mum
Katie Price has denied the claims that she’s a bad mother and insists she can’t wait to expand her family further.
Earlier this month, Katie and husband Peter Andre’s former nanny Becky Gauld claimed the couple couldn’t be bothered caring for their three children and Katie particularly used to avoid spending time with her children.
However, Katie told OK magazine recently the claims are false: “I love everything about being a mother.”
“I can’t wait to have more kids. I want to wait until [youngest child] Princess is at nursery though so we can enjoy the three we have now.”
“I’d definitely think about adopting. We’ve even found a place over here where you can foster disabled kids. I want to go there on my day off and get one now.”
But that’s not to say it’s always easy managing life with eight months old Princess Tiaamii, two year old Junior and particularly five year old Harvey, who is almost entirely blind and suffers from developmental problems.
She explained: “[Harvey]’s a nightmare at the moment. His behaviour is terrible. Me and my friend went into town the other day and Harvey was fine until he got to the car park.”
“I tried to get him out of his wheelchair and he threw himself on the ground. There were me and my friend trying to lift an eight-stone child who was flipping like a fish, into the car.”
“His tantrums are getting worse I think because he’s bigger and stronger now. It always happens in public. I don’t really look at anyone else - I don’t really care. If they’re standing there staring, I’ll say: ‘What are you staring at? He’s not an animal in a cage.’”
“Pete always used to say I gave Harvey more attention, but that’s because he has special needs and I knew his routine quicker and better.”
“But now the attention is equal between all of them.”
