As Katie Price shrugs off her troubles by focusing on twins and marriage with new fiancé Kris, pals worry two newborns and a wedding will push her over the edge

She couldn’t contain her smiles last week as she announced her engagement to on/off toyboy Kris Boyson on Loose Women, revealing how she “wants more kids”, having suffered two miscarriages while in their year-long relationship.

But behind the happy façade, close pals fear Jordan – who admitted she wants twins after filming a recent visit to an IVF clinic for her reality TV show My Crazy Life – is on a path to self-destruction after her most troubled year yet.

A source says, “Katie always needs to shock and to have drama or a new project to focus on. She can’t ever be alone, and always thinks a man and babies are the solution to every issue in her life.

"But her friends are very worried she’s not in the right headspace to make such a huge decision and add even more stress to her life after a very challenging year. They fear it could destroy her by wrecking what little stability she has left.”

Jordan, 41, fell into a chaotic spiral after the end of her third marriage to Kieran Hayler collapsed last year.

She was initially linked to footballer Shane Duffy, before coupling up with personal trainer Kris, 29, before they briefly split while she dated Essex businessman Alex Adderson, 25.

Katie began dating Another Level (remember them?) singer Dane Bowers during her Jordan days in 1998. Katie has since spoken about how devasated she was after the pair split in 2000.

After his smash hit 'Out of Your Mind' with Victoria Beckham (who Katie reportedly had a feud with) Dane went a bit quiet on the music scene. Fast forward to 2013 and he reformed with Another Level for The Big Reunion. More recently, Dane has been linked to Love Island star Laura Anderson, who he apparently ended up cheating on. He must have been out of his mind #sorrynotsorry

Matt married an actress and model called Rachael in 2016. Bizarrely, his photos have also been used in quite a few catfishing incidents. But Katie recently started following Matt on Instagram - what can this mean?

Peter Andre 2004 - 2009

The nation watched Peter Andre fall for Katie's charms on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! in 2004. The pair then starred in a string of reality TV shows documenting their life after a fairytale wedding. They even released an album of duets, which we'd all rather just forget about. Katie and Peter had two children together, Junior and Princess, during their five years of marriage.

Things between Pricey and Peter have soured in the years following their split, after he blasted Katie for her 'wild' behaviour. Peter is now married to Emily MacDonagh, who Junior and Princess see as an older sister figure. Pete also landed himself a role in the Thomas The Tank Engine film.

Before meeting Katie, Alex starred in Sliding Doors with Gwyneth Paltrow (OK, so it was a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment). After they split, Alex went on to star in Celebrity Big Brother and he continues to fight. He's been married to Nikki Manashe since 2013. Most recently, he has been involved in a sex tape allegation - claiming that Katie showed a group of people a video of him performing a sex act. Will the drama ever end? (We hope not.)

Leandro Penna - 2011 - 2012

Katie got engaged to Leandro after a whirlwind romance shortly after splitting from Alex Reid - despite the couple barely being able to communicate thanks to his limited English and Katie's non-existent Spanish (former model Leandro hails from Argentina). Leo said of their split, "Katie's brain is not wired right, or the wires don't connect properly. I don't know what's wrong with her. I was thinking it over recently and one day decided to pack my bags and leave. There was nothing else I could do. She was driving me insane."

Since splitting with KP, Leandro has quit fame to return to his native South America and now runs a successful avocado farm and business. Launching in October 2021 he said, "I present my new avocado venture @paltasroyal. Thanks to all the businesses that gave us confidence, to all the avocado-loving customers and to those merchants who have not yet bought them, do not hesitate."

Kieran Hayler 2012 - 2018

It looked like Katie had a good thing going with Kieran Hayler and their two kids, Jett and Bunny. But Kieran had to go and ruin it by cheating on Katie with her nanny, two best friends (while she was pregnant), then again with a 19-year-old shop assistant. Katie kept taking him backbut she FINALLY called it quits in May 2018.

Katie started dating personal trainer Kris Boyson within weeks of splitting from Kieran. She celebrated her 40th birthday with him and her family are said to have approved of him. Their relationship lasted a year before split rumours started to circulate, and the pair were on and off-ing since September 2019 until their split in December that year.

Kris is still posting insanely buff topless selfies (keep 'em coming, Kris) and his personal training business is thriving. After his split from Katie, he began dating Katie's former pal Bianca Gascoigne, much to Katie's dismay. The couple moved in together within days due to lockdown but split after nearly a year together, citing their hectic work schedules.

Carl Woods - 2020

Could it be fourth time lucky? After months of speculation, Katie and Carl confirmed their engagement in April 2021.

A string of wild behaviour followed, where the former model shockingly confessed to taking cocaine, was put on antidepressants, and entered rehab for post-traumatic stress disorder – sparking fears for her mental health after she quit within four days.

Her roller-coaster life continued to lurch from one disaster to the next as it was revealed she’d blown her £45m fortune, neglected her “decrepit” Sussex mansion, appeared in court multiple times for driving offences charges – the latest of which is still ongoing – and was slapped with a restraining order relating to Kieran’s girlfriend, Michelle Penticost, following a foul-mouthed tirade outside the school.

In May, the mum-of-five appeared intoxicated as she flashed her breasts and snogged a drag queen while judging a Porn Idol competition.

Despite her unstable recent behaviour, Katie claimed in her interview last week, “Things are actually going well. I’ve got the man, the ring, life is fantastic...I’m happy.” But pals aren’t convinced and worry she’s not recovered from the trauma of last year.

The source says, “Katie’s mates wish she’d just take some time out. She’s had a really rough ride of it lately and they don’t feel she’s out of the woods yet. She’s not cleared her debts, the house is still is disarray, another court case looms and she’s looking for a distraction.

"They wish she’d just take it easy and look after herself rather than add a wedding and babies into the mix. She’s happy to get married while she’s pregnant, and doesn’t think she’s in a position to wait now that she’s in her forties. But Kris worries that twins – or even just one baby – could be too much.”

Last week Jordan also revealed she’d suffered two miscarriages during her relationship with Kris, adding her chances of conceiving were low due to her age. She also revealed she “wouldn’t rule out” adopting, having already announced her plans to adopt a child from Nigeria at the start of the year.

And pals say they’re nervous more heartache could follow if she keeps trying to get pregnant.

The source says, “She’s optimistic and looking into all of her options, but friends can’t bear to see her go through any more heartache let alone think about her being in the right place to be a mum.

"They feel her surgery is just like her engagements – she wants a quick fix to being happy. Rather than continuing to work on herself, she just thinks another wedding and a child will make her happy.”

Closer magazine issue 863

Meanwhile, pals are concerned that Jordan’s rock – her mum Amy, 64 – may not be around to support her daughter, as she was diagnosed with a terminal lung condition in 2017.

The source adds, “Amy and Katie are very close, and she’s a very hands-on grandma to all the kids. Kate’s pals are concerned that if anything goes wrong with Kris or when she needs help with the baby and Amy isn’t able to support her, then Katie will fall to pieces.”
