Katie Price sheds rare insight on co-parenting with ex Peter Andre

Katie Price has given a rare insight into co-parenting her children Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, with ex-husband Peter Andre. 

In an interview with New!, the model, 42, spoke about Junior nabbing a record deal following her own attempts at storming the charts and Pete’s influence on their son, as she stated that her ex ‘knows the business’ so can guide Junior’s career. 

Her words – a rare moment of candour about her and Pete given chequered relations in the past – were published shortly before her fiancé Carl Woods denied hitting her – two weeks after she was allegedly assaulted by a man at a house in Essex.

Katie shares Junior and Princess with Peter, her eldest son Harvey, 19, with ex Dwight Yorke, and Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven with Kieran Hayler. 

Katie and Peter found love on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here back in 2004, before they tied the knot at Highclere Castle, the grand Berkshire estate of Downton Abbey fame, in September 2005.  

The couple welcomed son Junior in 2005, while daughter Princess followed in 2007. Creation between the pair also came artistically, with the release of reality programmes, a failed talk show and a foray into the music world. 

However, after four years of securing their position as the Ken and Barbie of reality TV and glossy magazine deals, the pair announced in 2009 that they were going their separate ways.

Katie noted that it was Peter who would tackle the business side of Junior’s deal.  

On Junior’s record deal, Katie said: ‘He’ll be a little star. He’s always been good at singing. His dad is the singer even though I still try…

‘His dad knows more in that area than me. And Princess does all her bits with me. Watch this space with Princess because you don’t know what’s coming up with her!’

Her interview with the magazine was alongside her sister Sophie, who recently welcomed her first child, and in the chat Katie revealed she wants more kids. 

The interview came in the wake of her recent alleged assault.

On Tuesday morning, Carl denied hitting her in an Instagram post – two weeks after she was allegedly assaulted by a man at the house she was staying at in Essex.

Police were called to the Essex property at around 1.30am on August 23, and a man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive and controlling behaviour. He has since been released on bail.

Following the attack, photos showed Katie with a bruise on her cheek and an injured lip. She said that she was attacked as she watched TV.

Breaking his silence since the alleged assault, Woods took to Instagram to say: ‘I have remained quiet until now due to the investigation being carried out by the police however I have found it so difficult to keep quiet on social media due to speculation and shocking abuse that I have received.

‘Anybody who thinks I hit Katie you’re completely delusional and have no idea of the reality of the situation. I have never and never would do anything to hurt Katie. The truth will be told.’

Katie began dating former Love Island star Carl in June 2020 and announced their engagement in April, just six weeks after her divorce from her third husband Kieran, 34, was finalised.

Despite the support of her loved ones, the glamour model still ‘doesn’t feel safe’, and has been beefing up the security in the wake of her attack.

The Real Husbands of Katie Price

In the decades since she first rose to fame, Katie Price has enjoyed – and quite likely endured – a decidedly busy love life that has seen her walk down the aisle three times before heading to divorce court in equal measure. Here’s a look at the trio with whom she exchanged ‘I dos’… and ‘I don’ts’:

 

PETER ANDRE (2005 – 2009)

The nation got to watch love blossom between the pair when they starred alongside one another on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here back in 2004. The flying sparks soon became nuptials, with blushing bride Katie and her erstwhile pop hunk beau tying the knot at Highclere Castle (the grand Berkshire estate of Downton Abbey fame) in September 2005. Katie, who was already mother to son Harvey (born in 2002 following a romance with former footballer Dwight Yorke), soon started a family with her new husband. The couple welcomed son Junior in 2005, while daughter Princess followed in 2007. Creation between the pair also came artistically, with the release of reality programmes, a failed talk show and a foray into the music world. However, after four years of securing their position as the Ken and Barbie of reality TV and glossy magazine deals, the pair announced in 2009 that they were going their separate ways.

 

 

ALEX REID (2010 – 2012) 

Katie soon switched her romantic allegiance from a onetime ab-bearing pop heartthrob to musclebound MMA fighter Alex Reid. The two met at Michelle Heaton’s 30th birthday party at London’s Cafe de Paris. But shortly after they got together, Katie dumped Alex on live TV, only for him to win her back and the pair go from strength to strength. Weeks after proudly cheering her man on to a win on the 2010 edition of Celebrity Big Brother (also featuring none other than her ex-boyfriend Dane Bowers), Katie jetted off to Las Vegas to tie the knot with her new partner in February 2010 after just seven months of dating – and nine months after divorcing Peter. Following their Sin City sojourn, the pair returned to their native UK, where they had a formal ceremony – which was filmed for a TV series. However, after just 11 months of marriage, the pair announced they were splitting and their divorce was finalised in March 2012. While Katie declared at the time that she married Alex ‘too soon’, she would later go on to reveal that a major factor in their split was his cross-dressing alter-ego Roxanne.

 

 

KIERAN HAYLER (2013 – 2021)

Showing herself to be a true woman of the times, Katie embarked on a romance with former stripper Kieran after the two met on the now-defunct Blackberry Messenger service in 2012. And just two months after altering the paths of their lives via those thumb-tapped fateful opening messages, the twosome would go on to exchange nuptials in the Caribbean. Kieran proposed to a thrilled Katie on Christmas Day 2012, and just three weeks later, the pair would be pronounced husband and wife in the idyllic shores of the Bahamas on January 16, 2013. They had their marriage blessed in Weston-super Mare, and in the months that followed, it appeared that Katie had finally found her happily ever after. They welcomed son Jett in August 2013, and daughter Bunny in August 2014. But Katie’s world came crashing down in 2014, when she discovered that Kieran had cheated on her with her close friend of 20 years, Jane Pountney, and was enjoying a fling with another of her pals, Chrissy Thomas. After publicly lashing out at all parties involved (and naming her pet pigs after her friends-turned-foes), Katie appeared determined to make things work when she renewed her vows with Kieran in 2015. But alas, it would not turn out to be third time lucky for Katie, as the pair split in 2018 amid even more cheating allegations. Their ‘amicable’ divorce was finalised in early 2021.
