Katie Price is no stranger to pregnancy as she is a mum to five children but her first baby, Harvey, was an incredibly traumatic one.

Never far from controversy, the 45-year-old reality star’s love life is constantly in the spotlight from texting a MAFS star to her brutal breakup with Carl Woods.

However, she has been praised for her dedication to her oldest son, who is now 21, as he navigates life with septo-optic dysplasia, autism, and Prader-Willi syndrome.

The former glamour model was just 24 when she gave birth to Harvey, who was two and a half weeks overdue and needed medical intervention.

Katie revealed doctors had to break her waters as she was screaming and being held down to force her labour to start.

‘All I can say is it was like a knitting need hook and they were literally going pull and pop,’ she graphically revealed to her sister Sophie on the Katie Price Podcast.

Never one to spare details, Katie added: ‘When I say I thought my eyeballs were gonna come out of my eyes like gobstoppers, I’m not joking.

‘I remember looking at mum and Sally as if they were holding me down as a hostage because you know I can’t bear anything like that. Oh my God, it hurt. I was looking at mum like, “Help me! Help me!”’

Harvey’s arrival in the world was well documented as his father, Dwight Yorke, ordered a paternity test at the time – which came back positive.

The 51-year-old footballer and Katie had a short relationship, and although he did come to the hospital for the birth he has rarely seen his son since.

Katie has previously said that Dwight refused to come into the room and cut the umbilical cord so her father did instead.

She then revealed she had given birth squatting, adding: ‘All I will describe it is like the ring of fire. The noises I was making, I swear I had a family of wolves in me.’

According to the OnlyFans star, Harvey was an incredibly easy baby to look after – which she later realised was due to his disablities.

‘He literally came everywhere we me, to work, to friend’s houses, if people came round mine we would all just get Harvey up. He was there,’ Katie continued.

‘He was the easiest baby, but he was only easy because he couldn’t see and I didn’t know about all his complications. He used to just sit there and drink a lot.

‘He always used to be in the bed with me because he drank a lot and now I know it’s because of his diabetes. But Harvey Bear, I have had no aggravation from any dad, it’s been me and my Harvey Price, me and my man.’

Katie is also mum to Junior, 18, and Princess, 16, who she shares with 90s pop icon Peter Andre, as well as Jett, 10, and Bunny, nine, with Kieran Hayler.
