Katie Price is reportedly determined to get healthy as she and boyfriend Carl Woods try to conceive.
The 42-year-old ex-glamour model, who already has five children ranging from 18 to six years old, has been doing everything possible to make sure baby No.6 is incoming.
A source told New! magazine the former glamour model is on mission to boost her fertility through a strict health regime after gaining a bit of lockdown weight – joining millions of others across the country.
“[Katie’s] saying she hates the say she looks at the moment,” said the insider, adding that Katie being unable to walk since breaking her feet last summer hasn’t helped her feel good about herself.
The 42-year-old broke both her feet during a holiday to Turkey after she jumped over a wall without realising there was a 25ft drop on the other side.
She was in ‘agonising pain’ with her injuries and has been told by doctors to wear her hospital boots again.
Katie appeared to have been making great progress in her recovery by walking again months before doctors predicted, before she took a turn for the worse.
“She’s determined to get fit, especially because she’s trying to get pregnant,” the source alleged.
“Weight loss is known to jump start fertility, so she’s taking some drastic action to get back into shape.”
The source claimed Katie’s not out of the woods in terms of recovering from her feet injuries, but is ditching takeaways in an effort to lose weight “naturally”.
The reality star, who turns 43 this year, is also said to be panicking that her fertility window is closing.
The insider said that Katie “knows time is ticking”.
“She because pregnant with Jett and then Bunny back to back, so she’s not used to it taking so long.”
They claim she’s getting frustrated and stressed because the process of getting pregnant is taking much longer than before, which means she’s “comfort eating”.
The stomach-hiding came just days after Katie publicly told her boyfriend of seven months Carl Woods “it’s that time” as she shared a snap of her folic acid supplements.
Folic acid is taken before conception and in the first three months of pregnancy to avoid birth defects in babies.
“She’s started taking folic acid to try to help her conceive quicker,” the source added.
“She won’t let anything stand in the way of her dreams becoming a reality – she’s doing everything she can.”
The pair recently embarked on a “baby-making holiday” to the Maldives in October and she even told the Sun: “It would be amazing to enter the New Year with a baby on the way and a ring on my finger.
“We’ve been trying – I’ll find out if I’m pregnant on the 29th because that’s when my period is due.”
While the ring has yet to appear, Katie has also shared her plans to change her name if she weds for a fourth time.
“We’re excited about everything; babies and marriage. I’ve even discussed it with my mum and what it will be like,” she told OK! magazine.
“And I’ll change my name from Katie Price to Katie Woods – I’ve never done that before.”
