Katie Price's tears for Pete and the baby they lost
Katie Price gave a tell-all interview to Piers Morgan this weekend – and revealed she lost a baby just weeks before Peter left her.
The model revealed her softer side in her emotional chat with Piers, where she explained she was pregnant while the couple were in America, how she lost the baby, the reasons for their split, and how Peter was her ‘everything‘.
A scan revealed that the baby’s heart had stopped around ten weeks into the pregnancy and she was forced to have a termination just days before running the London Marathon.
A doctor had told Katie he could not see a heartbeat, but wanted to carry out checks.
She said: ‘So he done some bloods and three days later he called me up and said, “I think the HGC level is still high which means that it could still be alive.”‘
A few days later Katie returned to her doctors, where a second scan revealed she had lost the baby.
‘I went in thinking, “He’s going to be great, he’s going to see a heartbeat.” And it was on the screen and you know they poke the thing around, he said: “No it’s, it’s died, it’s gone.”
‘I was confused… I said to him, “But the HGC levels have gone up, so surely that means there is a pregnancy?” And inside I’m thinking, “If I wait will it form, will a heartbeat come?”
‘All this goes through your head. And obviously it didn’t.
‘I said: “Well, what am I going to do? You know, I’ve got the marathon… because all this was going on in my head. And he said: “Well, we can terminate it tonight.”
‘So I had to be there, I had to be put to sleep and have it terminated.’
Katie said she struggled to cope.
‘I’d half thought it would be all right, you know, and I thought, you know: “I’ve, I’ve lost another baby,” and it was just so confusing.
‘My head was just like, because obviously I didn’t have a good trip in America, I wasn’t at a good place… I couldn’t wait to get back home to get a scan.
‘I couldn’t do it in America because everywhere we went we were getting followed by paparazzi and I didn’t want them to see me go in to have a scan.’
But Katie was still determined to run the marathon.
‘I keep going to the toilet because I keep checking to see if I’m bleeding and stuff, and then obviously my knee goes and I’m thinking of Harvey.
‘I’m trying to keep myself together, not to cry. I just wanted to say to people, “Just leave me alone, I’ve, I’ve just lost a baby, I’m bleeding, I’m trying to run, I’m trying my best,” but I can’t say it because, you know, it’s private.
‘Emotionally, for any woman, whether you’re in the media or not, to have a baby die, run the marathon, which is also a big thing on your body, and then your husband wants a divorce, split up.
‘That’s a lot for someone to take in.’
Katie also revealed that it was work, not infidelity, that drove the couple apart, and admitted that Pete was her ‘everything’.
‘Well, we were so, I was so into him, so in love with him, I can, honestly it was love at first sight, I was so in love with him, like, it was driving me nuts.
‘The way he was with me, the laughs that we had, we were just so into each other, we had great sex, um, we done everything together, we just had a complete laugh, it was just amazing… he was absolutely gorgeous.
‘I fancied the pants off him, he was just my everything, my total everything.
‘We were, well I was, absolutely obsessed. Not obsessed in a bad way but just, he was just my life, he was my absolutely everything and I loved him ‘til the day that obviously he split up with me, then over that.
‘It didn’t even turn to hate with, it hasn’t even turned to hate. It was like, OK, well I have to move on but I was definitely so in love with Pete.
‘The best, best years that I’ve had with the guy ever. We experienced so much together.
‘I really believed I would be with him forever… I was happy and I was in love and I thought I still would have been with him forever.
‘I never, ever in a million years thought I’d divorce.’
And Katie said she deeply regrets the trip to America.
‘It’s such a shame because we were so in love, and the American trip we should never ever, ever have done.
‘I mean I used to say to Pete… I don’t want to work with you all the time because when you come home what do you talk about?
‘If 24/7 we were stuck together that’s not healthy, that’s not normal.
‘Eventually, obviously I will get into another relationship, I’m going to do things completely, utterly different.
‘You’ve got to have your own time, your freedom and then enjoy things together and talk about things, definitely.’
She denied any allegation of cheating with anyone, but did admit that she can be a ‘nightmare’ when she drinks.
‘I know I’m a nightmare. When I have a drink I want to take my clothes off… it is a nightmare.
‘At the time I’m loving it, this is the thing, people have got to understand… I don’t smoke, I don’t take drugs, but occasionally I’m a binge drinker.
‘The worst, one of the worst cases but the thing is, after one glass… I start changing, I don’t know why, I’m an exhibitionist, I am a nightmare.‘
Asked if she had a final message for Pete, she said: ‘If I could speak to Pete now, I’d say: “Let’s be mature. Let’s speak to each other for the kids’ sake.“‘
