Katie Price has been warned that she’s likely to give birth to her fourth child early via Caesarean section following complications.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she said: “Doctors want to keep the baby inside me for as long as possible but they’ve told me they want to perform a caesarean.”
She added: “I don’t know what to expect from the next few days. I just want my baby out so I can meet it and hold it in my arms. I will feel much safer knowing it is out and in an incubator.”
The star and her husband Kieran Hayler – who are expecting their first child together – saw their holiday turn into a “horror film” after the amniotic sac – a bag filled with fluid inside the womb – had become torn and was at risk of infection.
She explained: “All of a sudden, six people rushed into the room and started putting an oxygen mask and a heart monitor on me.
“The only thing I was aware of was that my waters had broken. I didn’t know if the baby was going to be OK or whether I was having it or not. It was terrifying.”
Katie – who has 11-year-old son Harvey from her relationship with Dwight Yorke, son Junior, eight, and a daughter Princess Tiaamii, six, with her ex-husband Peter Andre – is currently receiving booster injections to help develop the tiny tot’s organs, but she’s convinced her baby will be fine.
She said: “I feel like I’ve been through hell over the past 13 days, but I just thank God I went straight to hospital and got things under control. I would advise any pregnant mum to do the same.
“My baby was in danger, but between the medical staff here and my doctor in London, I am in good hands and have to believe that all will be well.”
