Katie Price has revealed that she ‘would love’ to adopt a two-year-old girl who was born with a cleft lip along with a series of other health issues.
The former glamour model is a mother of five, and her eldest son Harvey, 19, was born with autism and Prader-Willi syndrome, which can cause learning difficulties and behavioural problems.
And the 43-year-old admitted that she was more than happy to welcome another special needs child into her family when learning about little Olivia, who could potentially be brought up in permanent care.
‘I would love to (have) her in my family,’ Katie added alongside two red heart emojis.
Olivia was born with a cleft lip and palate that doesn’t allow her to eat and drink orally and has had her stomach tied to avoid being sick.
Further health issues are also likely as she grows because she has a duplication of one chromosome.

Katie became aware of Olivia’s plight after social workers in Devon put out a ‘last chance’ appeal to home Olivia. She will be placed into a permanent care solution if not placed with a family.
This comes after Katie celebrated her eldest child Harvey’s 19th birthday with a slew of snaps.
Katie was seen in some photos cradling Harvey – who she shares with former footballer Dwight Yorke – as a newborn, while in one, she was photographed feeding the baby with a bottle.

Harvey was seen getting older in the photos as they progressed from newborn to toddler – with one shot showing the mother-son duo lapping up a tropical holiday as they played on the beach.
The My Crazy Life star wrote alongside the sweet snaps: ‘Happy Birthday to my absolute world Harvey on his 19th birthday.
‘No matter what situation I’ve been in he has been there for me and kept me going, we are a team. I love you so much Harvey.’
Harvey was recently nominated for a National Television Award for his documentary Katie Price: Harvey and Me.
In the documentary, Katie searched for a residential college for Harvey now that he is an adult.Credit: Original article published here.
