Katie Price baby: Jordan gives birth eight weeks early

by Esme Riley Published on 18 August 2013

Katie Price has revealed that she’s given birth to a baby boy - but her labour was far from easy. The glamour girl was on holiday when she was rushed to hospital for an emergency caesarean. Her newborn premature son is still being monitored in hospital.

Katie Price has announced that she's a mum again after giving birth eight weeks early.

The former glamour model was on a family holiday with her husband Kieran Hayler last week when blood tests revealed she had an infection.

She was rushed for an emergency caesarean to prevent any harm to her baby.

Katie told The Sun: "The baby’s heart rate was also really low. The next thing I know, a nurse is in my room saying: ‘Get ready now. You have five minutes to shower. You are having C-section soon.’

"I started panicking. I have a terrible fear of needles and I was dreading the epidural.

"I got in the shower in shock. I kept thinking ‘This will be my last shower before I have my fourth child.’

"The next thing I knew I was being wheeled to the theatre."

Kieran, who was out shopping at the time, rushed to be by his wife's side.

The 35-year-old continued: "I was in a state. He’s never seen me like that before. He must have thought his wife had turned into a lunatic.

"When we got to the theatre door a nurse pointed at Kieran and said, ‘You, no!’ They wouldn’t allow him in.

"We pleaded but everything was happening so fast and before I knew it I was forced to say goodbye.

"I was sobbing, ‘I love you, I love you,’ as the doors swung shut behind me. It was like a scene from a dramatic film. I carried on pleading but no one could speak English well. I was hysterical."

Katie described her op as "pure stress", claiming she could "feel the pressure" of the incision.

She continued: "Bringing life into the world is supposed to be magical. But what I went through was a nightmare.

"I kept thinking I must be dreaming. The doctor just said, ‘You will have your baby in two minutes.’ And the next thing I knew I had."

Katie - also mum to Harvery, Princess and Junior - named her 5lb 2oz baby boy Jett Riviera.

But the businesswoman had just seconds to bond with her son before he was rushed off to an incubator.

Katie continued: "The only thing that had got me through the nightmare was the thought of cradling my little boy. But he was only put near my face for seconds. I was really upset. I felt like punching someone.

"I kept asking for Kieran but they told me he was with our baby. I kept begging them, ‘Please get my husband’.

"It felt so unfair because Kieran and I didn’t get that moment couples should share. But more importantly, I didn’t even know what my baby weighed or if he was OK.

"An hour and a half after the delivery, I still hadn’t seen Jett so I just yelled, ‘Please can someone take me to my baby!’

"A nurse came and said, ‘Tomorrow.’ By now I was panicking because I’ve suffered postnatal depression in the past and was worried about the stress triggering it again."

Jett is now doing well, but his heart rate and temperature are still being monitored.

Katie was released from hospital on Friday, but it could be three weeks before Jett's allowed home.

The mum-of-four added: "I’d prefer him to keep getting stronger here so that we can take him straight home when we’re back in England."
