Katie Price reveals the search for a surrogate is on as she plans to have a sixth child

Katie Price has revealed her plans to find a surrogate in America as she plans to have a sixth child, but has admitted that she ‘needs a man first!’.

The outspoken mum-of-five has opened up about expanding her brood, but admits she ‘doesn’t want to carry another baby just yet’.

This isn’t the first time the reality television star has talked about surrogacy or adopting, but this time she admits she is actively trying to find a surrogate so she can add to her family of five children at an event in London.

Katie already has five children

Speaking exclusively at a BUILD Series London event, the TV personality said: ‘I am going to get a surrogate, I’m looking for one at the moment in America.’

The 39-year-old added: ‘I want another baby, but don’t want to carry another one at the minute.

‘I need a man for that anyway!’ she joked, referring to her marriage split from Kieran Hayler.

The 39-year-old mum-of-five suffered a miscarriage in August. Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online, Katie explained: ‘Three of my best friends have all had baby girls in the past six weeks.

‘I’m surrounded by newborn baby girls, so that’s enough to fill my nurturing needs.’

The brunette added: ‘It’s not making me broody though, I had a miscarriage two months ago, then found out about Kieran cheating, then my mum being ill, and now all this business with Harvey, so it’s all too a bit heartbreaking to consider [having another baby] another at the moment.’

Katie opened up about her miscarriage on Loose Women as she was joined on the show by her mum Amy. The pair discussed Amy’s recent diagnosis with terminal lung condition idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

Katie Price already has five children – she has eldest son Harvey, 15, from her relationship with Dwight Yorke, while she shares Princess, ten, and Junior, 12, with ex husband Peter Andre.

She welcomed son Jett in 2013 with husband Kieran and gave birth to their daughter, Bunny, in 2014.
