Katie Price fears son Harvey will die of diabetes as his weight sky-rockets to 22 stone
Katie Price's reveals that her current boyfriend gives Harvey more attention than any other man in her life ever has
If there’s one thing that means the world to Katie Price, it’s her children. She recently opened up about her deep concern for her eldest son Harvey’s health. Harvey is only 16 years old, and his weight has already sky-rocketed to 22 stone. Katie fears that he might contract type 2 diabetes and end up dying young.
Harvey suffers from a condition called Prader-Willi, which causes morbid obesity in children. Symptoms of the condition include feeling hunger constantly, making Harvey prone to diabetes.
Katie told The Sun about his medical problems. “He’s got medial problems. And if he doesn’t sort it out he will die, we’ve been told, because of his heart. So at the moment we are really trying to sort out his health."
Katie’s current boyfriend Kris Boyson, who happens to be a personal trainer and weigh loss specialist, has taken it upon himself to train Harvey. In fact, the duo actually got together because of Harvey. Katie hired him to improve Harvey’s health and help him lose weight. And after she divorced Kieran Hayler, she instantly connected with Kris who was giving her child more attention than her previous husband ever did.
She admitted, “Kieran was a personal trainer before and not once did he try and train Harvey.” She even had several kind words to share about her current beau, not just in terms of how diligently he is supporting her son, but as a person as well.
"Kris is helping Harvey and of course I like that. He’s just very level headed and I think he’s definitely come into my life at the right time." She even went on to mention that she was attracted to the fact that he "has banter."
Katie also compared the way Kris treats Harvey to the way other men in her life have. “If you think about all the men that have come into Harvey’s life, they are there but then as soon as they go they don’t want to know him.”
She really seems to love that Kris is taking such an interest in Harvey’s life and truly making him happy. She even claims that no one has ever given Harvey the kind of attention Kris has been giving him, and it’s definitely something she finds “attractive.”
Katie really seems to have found a keeper, and she doesn't shy away from telling the world. Several of her Instagram posts showcase adorable pictures of the couple. Recently, she posted a picture with Kris, where she cusped her face with her hand. She captioned the image, “This is the real gentleman @krisboyson that puts a smile on my face every day that treats me like a woman should be treated! He is perfect in every way, and wish I met him Years ago … he is my total rock in every way and I feel so lucky every day.”
While taking to The Sun, Katie also opened up about her depression during the shoot of the second series of her upcoming show ‘My Crazy Life.’ Her depression came after she figured out her ex-husband Kieran was cheating on her yet again with the nanny.
Katie said: "There were days I would wake up and I didn’t want to get out of bed. You know, I just wanted to sleep. I was depressed. Mentally depressed. Mentally abused. It’s so difficult but now towards the end people will see such a difference in me because I’ve got my life back. Kieran’s not there. I’m back to my independent woman. I’m back to me. Just how I am. You know once you hit rock bottom where is there to go? You’re not going to go to the center of the earth. You’ve got to go up."
Back in 2017, Kieran opened up about his infidelity to stop rumors that branded Katie as a liar. He admitted to sleeping with the nanny, blaming his actions on his sex addiction. According to The Sun, he said, "This wasn’t a big love affair, I didn’t fancy Nikki. I’m a sex addict and needed a thrill. If our nanny had been 80 I’d probably have tried to manipulate her into having sex too. It didn’t matter who it was, I just wanted a fix. If it wasn’t her it would have been someone else. It was a means to an end, the thrill of the chase. Can you imagine how embarrassed I am about being a sex addict, mortified at admitting this? Look at Katie . . . and look at her!"
He added: “I refuse to have Katie wrongly branded a liar. Sadly Katie is telling the truth — I cheated with our nanny. I’ve hurt her, betrayed her and now need to stand up for her. However bad I feel, I know I have made Katie feel worse.”
