Wow, talk about a shocking statement. Katie Price has opened up about a very touchy subject in her life — her son Harvey’s disabilities. The former model revealed that she would have chosen to abort her pregnancy, had she known about his health conditions.
Katie Price‘s son, Harvey, 13, is blind and has Prader–Willi syndrome and it was extremely tough on the former model when she was younger. On Feb. 29 the mother-of-five admitted to the hosts of Loose Women that had she known about his disabilities while pregnant, she would have aborted him.
“I was young when I had Harvey and I admit it: If I’d have known he was blind when I had him, as harsh as it sounds, I probably would have aborted him,” she told the hosts on Loose Women. But before you jump down her throat, know that she only felt this way out of fear. The model stated she had not been prepared for what her life would entail when she was only 23 and began caring for her disabled son. Katie went on to add that she is glad she did not make that drastic decision and would now think about adopting another disabled child. “Now, no way,” she said. “If I got pregnant again and they said they had disabilities I’d definitely keep it. I’d even adopt a child with disabilities. Until you’re in that situation you don’t know.”
The brunette beauty also made sure to tell the audience that she “would never change anything about Harvey”. She added, “It’s challenging but rewarding. I don’t think anyone should be ashamed of a child with disabilities.” Good for you, Katie. We bet other mothers whom are in this same situation will find her words to be honest and up-lifting.
