Katie Price Expecting Baby Girl: Pregnant Star Confirms The Happy News

Katie Price has confirmed reports that she's expecting a baby girl, adding that she thinks the new baby will help her face her current problems.

The former glamour model has had a tough time since announcing her plans to divorce Kieran Hayler but now Katie seems to be concentrating on getting ready for the new addition to her family.

Writing in her Now magazine column, Katie shared her joy, adding that her children are very excited to meet their new sister.

"I can confirm I'm having a baby girl! I'm really excited and Princess is over the moon that she's having a little sister," she wrote. "Harvey is obsessed with the 'third boob' (what he calls my bump) and Junior is very happy, too.

"My baby girl will be part of the perfectly balanced family that will help me get through this storm."

Over the weekend, Kieran shocked Katie by revealing the sordid details of his affair with Jane in a tell-all interview, before penning a letter to Jane - which appeared in The Sun - stating he had a 'compulsive addiction'.

Shortly after sharing the details of her shock split on the social networking site, Katie released a statement explaining her desire for Kieran to remain a part of their children’s lives.

“I will do all I can to ensure he maintains a relationship with his children should he want that,” she said.

Her best friend Jane Poutney has admitted to the affair, despite claims by her husband that the whole situation is a “storm in a teacup”.

Jane and husband Derrick released a joint statement, saying: “This is something that Jane deeply regrets and we will not provide any more details about it. It is true that Kate found out about this affair yesterday.”

It was recently revealed that Katie has apparently cancelled her upcoming birthday bash, stating that she has nothing to celebrate.

The former glamour model has received messages of support from a number of celebs including Luisa Zissman, Chantelle Houghton and her ex-husband Alex Reid.

Alex has also claimed that Jane was flirtatious towards him during his relationship with Katie.
