Model Katie Price gave birth to an eight weeks premature baby boy last week. The child has been named Jett Riviera.


It is Price's fourth child and a first with husband Kieran Hayler.

Price, who was rushed to hospital after her amniotic sac - a bag of fluid inside the womb - tore, was only 32 weeks along in her pregnancy. The baby boy was born last week, weighing 5 Ibs, 2oz, following an emergency caesarian in a foreign hospital.

The 35-year-old had reportedly developed a potentially life-threatening infection.

"I went through a nightmare. The baby's heart rate was also really low. The next thing I know the nurse is in my room saying get ready now," Price told mirror.co.uk.

She also has a son, Harvey, 11, from her relationship with footballer Dwight Yorke, as well as Junior, eight, and Princess, six, with ex-husband Peter Andre.
