KATIE Price has finally spoken out about the explosive ‘baby bump’ picture that ignited rumours she is pregnant.
The 42-year-old star told The Sun the speculation left her fuming – because behind closed doors she was struggling to conceive.
Katie sparked a flurry of speculation in April when she posed with a hand on her stomach on Instagram.
She captioned the snap: “Happy and healthy ❤️❤️❤️❤️ it’s the best feeling ever I thank @carljwoods for being part of me x.”
The picture, taken as she headed home from celeb restaurant handout Sheesh in Essex in a car, showed what many thought was a ‘baby bump’.
However, as congratulations from Katie’s celebrity followers piled up in the comments below the picture, she was doing anything but celebrating.
The star explained she was finding herself devastated each month when her pregnancy tests came back negative.
She said: “That was so annoying as everyone was speculating I was pregnant but I wasn’t. I wished I was!
“I have put on loads of weight as I’m trying to eat really healthily – so I just felt like saying: ‘F**k off!’
“We’ve been doing pregnancy tests every month but the last few months we haven’t bothered. It’s been so disheartening.”
Katie has never made any secret about wanting to start a family with Essex car dealer and former Love Island star Carl, 32.
She previously teased she might already be pregnant and he has been seen leaving Tesco carrying a home pregnancy test.
Mum-of-five Katie already has children Harvey, 18, from a relationship with Dwight Yorke, and Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, who she shares with Peter Andre.
She also has youngest children Jett, seven, and Bunny, six, with ex-husband Kieran Hayler.
Last month The Sun revealed that Katie is heading down the aisle again after Carl proposed and she said yes.
The pair are now hoping to marry this year, promising fans the ceremony will be “completely different” to anything they have seen from her before.
