Katie Price: biography
The energy of Katie Price is to be envied. She is a writer, businesswoman, mother with many children, and political activist who has been involved in many scandals. Most English gentlemen know the celebrity for her revealing photo shoots and impressive bra size.
Childhood and youth
The girl was born in the late spring of 1978, in the southeast of England, to Amy and Ray Infield, who named her Katrina Amy Alexandra Alexis. When she was four years old, her parents divorced, and after six years, the mother of the future star married builder Paul.
She acquired the stepfather's surname Price and took her nickname Katie, so the model created the stage name which became world famous. Katie Price is the namesake of the character in the first season of the romantic medical series Grey's Anatomy, as well as the heroine of the 2018 drama Midnight Sun.
The star is a Halakhic Jew (Katie’s maternal grandmother was the representative of the ancient Middle Eastern people). The English woman has a half-brother and a younger half-sister. As a child, Price succeeded in swimming and horseracing, and in 1996, Katie's topless photo appeared on Page 3, of British newspaper The Sun, which published the pictures of topless girls for 35 years.
During her modeling business, Price performed under the pseudonym Jordan, posed for Playboy magazine six times, appeared on the pages of the British edition of Esquire, men's magazines Maxim and FHM. Although Katie is not tall, she attracted the attention of men with an athletic figure and her breast that were enlarged surgically.
Price has participated in television projects, including a dance competition in Argentina and I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!, which she won in 2015. Katie played herself in many films and released a fitness workout disc.
The star produced nutritional supplements that were named unnecessary by the British Dietetic Association in 2018. She also launched her perfume and equestrian clothing lines. Katie is a writer and singer. Price was a runner up in the search for the UK's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005. The model’s books (autobiographies, novels, and children's books) have a total circulation of more than 3 million copies. The celebrity also worked as a columnist in The Sun and OK!
The celebrity’s personal life has a lot of exciting events. The star has been married three times and has given birth to five children. Katie had the first child with Dwight Yorke, a dark-skinned athlete, a native of Trinidad and Tobago. Paternity testing confirmed that he was a father. Shortly after the birth of her son, Price was diagnosed with an oncological disease, a leiomyosarcoma on her finger. The star managed to kill the disease.
Katie’s first husband was singer and TV presenter Peter Andre. The stars met on the reality show I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!, and for four years of marriage, she gave birth to two children and had two miscarriages. The second child of the model was born by Caesarean section. Katie and Peter’s daughter Princess Tiaamii has already attracted media attention several times. At the age of eight, the girl began to apply make-up and signed a contract to publish a book when she was nine years old.
Two months after breaking up with Peter, she began dating MMA Alex Reid. The couple celebrated the wedding twice (in the US and the UK), but divorced less than a year after the first ceremony. During the marriage, Alex starred in the movie Killer Bitch which contained a real sex scene.
During the third marriage with stripper Kieran Hayler, Katie gave birth to two more children, son Jett Riviera (2013) and daughter Bunny (2014). Kieran’s betrayal marred the marriage. When Katie was pregnant for the second time, the unfaithful husband had a love affair with his wife’s good friend and then started a relationship with their babysitter named Brown. As a result, the couple broke up.
Besides creativity, family and the birth of children, Price’s biography has also included political activities (she ran as a candidate in Stretford and Urmston during the British General Election in 2001), drunk driving, accusations of using cocaine, the Celebrity Mum of the Year award, and bankruptcy case. Katie claims that she was raped in her youth.
The star, who underwent some plastic surgeries in her youth, now says that the age limit for plastic surgery should increase from 18 to 21. Price believes that young girls may later regret the impulsive decision to have surgery to meet imposed aesthetic standards.
Katie likes pink color. The star has a lot of pink cars. In 2011, Price made the appropriate modernization of her elite sports car Bugatti Veyron for $ 200 thousand, in 2012 she purchased a glamorous horsebox, and in 2018 crashed Range Rover from her collection. The star’s daughters also wear pink outfits, which is evident in their photos on Instagram.
Katie Price now
In 2018, Price joined the campaign aimed at protecting people with disabilities from online abuse on social media. The model has personal motives because Katie's older son has an autism spectrum disorder, obesity, and blindness due to a genetic disease. In the spring of 2019, the UK Parliament considered a petition signed by the star.
In March 2019, Kieran Hayler had his tattoo of Katie Price in her underwear covered up with a ship.
“The ship and my wife have already sailed,” Price’s ex-husband joked.
At the same time, the model announced the reunion with a long-time boyfriend, trainer Boyson.
Nowadays, Katie Price has an estimated net worth of $40 million.
