The former glamour model, Katie Price, revealed that she is planning to adopt a Nigerian orphan as there are “plenty of rooms” in her house.
Katie Price, 40, disclosed this during an interview with This Morning, she will fly out to Nigeria to find a new addition to her family.
According to her, she “would have gone last weekend” but was too busy with the kids. The mother of five said:
“I’ve said I always wanted to adopt a child. I don’t care if they have disabilities or AIDS, just because I feel I can offer them a place.
“Funnily enough, I was having my nails done and I got talking to a woman sitting next to me who works with orphans in Nigeria. She knows all these people who do visas and stuff.”
Asked why she wouldn’t adopt a child in Britain, she replied:
“It is so hard to adopt over here. It’s easy abroad – but just hard to bring them back to the country. I’ve looked into it for ages.”
Katie Price already has son Harvey, 16, with ex-footballer Dwight Yorke, Junior, 13, and Princess, 11, with ex-husband Peter Andre and Jett, five, and Bunny, four, with Kieran Hayler.
She said her decision to adopt does not mean she has ruled out of having more biological children of her own, she wants to expand her brood.
“I still want my own kids don’t get me wrong,” she said. “I’d love to definitely have more. But if I can offer another child a place, I will. There are enough rooms in the house. Eleven bedrooms – there are too many to fill.”
