Katie Price has revealed that she suffered a miscarriage just days before discovering that husband Kieran Hayler had cheated on her with the family nanny.
The 39-year-old was on today’s Loose Women to talk about her mum Amy, who has sadly been diagnosed with a life-limiting lung disease, known as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), but had exposed Kieran’s infidelities to the press just days before the sad news of her mum’s ilness was revealed.
Referring to the tough week she has just gone through, to now be faced with her mum’s terminal illness, Katie said: ‘And I had a miscarriage before, four days later I found out.’
There was an audible gasp from the audience, with panellist Andrea McLean explaining: ‘it never rains, it pours,’ before recalling that last week Katie was on the show revealing her marriage to Kieran was over.
Andrea added that the Loose Women panellists ‘knew behind the scenes’ about Katie’s miscarriage but that Katie herself hadn’t made the information public.
After dropping the miscarriage bombshell – Katie went on to say that ‘[mums diagnosis] just hasn’t hit me yet’, before admitting ‘I was so blunt with the Dr, I just wanted to know how long she had left.’
Amy has been told that her lungs will get progressively worse, as IPF is scarring of the lungs and causes difficulty breathing.
‘It goes up the lungs and eventually I won’t be able to breath,’ explained Amy.
‘But we’re a strong family’, Katie exclaimed. Her mum, Amy agreed before adding: ‘I’m not going to peg off just yet, not until she’s settled. It’s about time she sorted herself together.’
When asked how she felt about the diagnosis, Amy said: ‘I’m fuming about it. I’ve been healthy all my life.’
‘I’m planning on writing letters for everyone’, said Amy. ‘I want to make sure that my thoughts of everyone are written down so they have a reminder of me.’
Katie interrupted with: ‘Mum, you’re not going anywhere yet so chill out.’
