Katie Price – who launched her new novel, Paradise, in London today (July 28) – is convinced that her children are better off now that she and ex-husband Peter Andre are no longer together.
“I think it’s probably good I split with Pete when they were so young,” explains the former glamour model. “I was about their age when my parents got divorced and I can’t even remember it, so hopefully they won’t either.”
They’re lucky really, all kids with divorced parents are lucky because they get extra Christmas presents and trips out and two sets of birthday presents.
Katie is mom to 5-year-old Junior and 3-year-old Princess Tiaamii with her ex-husband, and to son Harvey, 8, with former soccer star Dwight Yorke.
Now married to cage fighter Alex Reid, the 32-year-old star claims she isn’t as popular since her split from Andre is May 2009: “I think it’s absolute nonsense that I’m not as popular as I used to be,” says Katie. “People are intrigued by me. My life is like a film and I get portrayed as the baddie all the time.”
