KATIE Price has revealed she wants to have a fifth caesarean despite the health risks – and has considered turning to a surrogate for baby six.
Katie is already mum to Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, who she shares with ex Peter Andre, as well as Jett, 7, and Bunny, 6, with ex husband Kieran Hayler and Harvey, 18, with Dwight Yorke.
But the reality TV star dreads the thought of her children growing up and leaving home.
She shared her plans to have kids with fiance Carl Woods during an interview with Australian news channel Studio 10.
Katie, 43, said: "I've decided (to have more kids) as they get older, and they leave the house, you know I'm so nurturing.
"But because I've had four caesareans, they only recommend three. I have seen a gynecologist and they said that I would be able to have another one. If not, I would do surrogacy.
"I'm not finished yet, I definitely want more babies. When you get old, I might look young and act young, but our bodies inside are getting old whether we like it or not.
I will have to do IVF…
"So the next baby I have I will have to do IVF, I already know that. So that is another journey that I will talk about."
The celeb has made no secret about wanting to start a family with Essex car dealer Carl.
The star told The Sun she was finding herself devastated each month when her pregnancy tests came back negative.
She said: "That was so annoying as everyone was speculating I was pregnant but I wasn’t. I wished I was!
“I have put on loads of weight as I’m trying to eat really healthily – so I just felt like saying: 'F**k off!'
“We’ve been doing pregnancy tests every month but the last few months we haven’t bothered. It’s been so disheartening.”
What are the risks of a Caesarean?
Even though C-sections are typically safe procedures, all surgery carries a certain risk.
The NHS outlines possible complications…
- Infection of the wound or womb lining
- Blood clots
- Excessive bleeding
- Damage to nearby areas, such as the bladder or the tubes that connect the kidneys and bladder (ureter)
- Temporary breathing difficulties in your baby
- Accidentally cutting your baby when your womb is opened
Around one in five babies born in Britain are delivered by a C-section.
To carry out the operation, a cut is made across the tummy, allowing surgeons access to the womb.
Caesareans can be life-threatening, so doctors will only recommend it if it’s the safest option for pregnant women and their babies.
