Katie Price discusses her new daughter and the reaction of her sons
British star Katie Price has spoken to OK! magazine about her yet-to-be-named daughter, 5 days, and her sons Junior, 2, and Harvey, 5. Although she echoes husband Pete Andre‘s remarks about their daughter’s eyes, she’s not too sure about the ‘stunning’ part.
She has massive eyes and looks a real mixture of me and Pete. I think all newborn babies are ugly! They look like little old men! I think they need a few weeks to grow into themselves. I remember Junior looked like he had a big nose. People go: ‘Ahh, how cute’ and I think ‘No, how ugly!’ It’s very rare you find a cute one so young, but Junior’s gorgeous now.
Even if Junior is looking cute, he’s not acting that way, says Katie. He’s having a hard time adjusting to the baby.
[With the new baby,] there will definitely be more pink in the house and it will be nice to have a girl on my side. Hopefully Junior will be more into me. He’s not into me at the minute. I don’t know if he can sense what it’s all about and he sees the baby as competition. I only have to look at him and he whines.
He’s gone really daddified, even though he’s always been a bit like that. I don’t know if it’s because I’ve been doing all the baby stuff or how much he understands because we’d say: ‘What’s in there?’ and point at my stomach and he’d go ‘Baby.’
Her oldest son, Harvey, presents a set of challenges as well — he has a health condition called septo-optic dysplasia, which causes blindness, weight issues, and cognitive delays. Katie explains,
[We will have to keep Harvey away from her for now]. To Harvey she will be just another noise. I’ll still let Harvey hold her, but we will be there the whole time because even though he’s better with Junior now, Junior is definitely still wary of him because [Harvey] used to clobber him.
