Price: Divorce is good for the kids

Katie Price thinks her children are “lucky” she is no longer with Peter Andre.

The former glamour model – who has two kids, Junior, five, and three-year-old Princess Tiaamii, with her ex-husband and a son, Harvey, eight, with former footballer Dwight Yorke – thinks the children benefit from having divorced parents because of all the extra presents they will get at Christmas and birthdays.

She said: “I think it’s probably good I split with Pete when they were so young. I was about their age when my parents got divorced and I can’t even remember it, so hopefully they won’t either.

“They’re lucky really, all kids with divorced parents are lucky because they get extra Christmas presents and trips out and two sets of birthday presents.”

Katie – who is now married to cage-fighter Alex Reid – also hit back at claims she isn’t as popular since she split from Pete, 37, in May 2009.

In a TV interview, the 32-year-old star explained: “I think it’s absolute nonsense that I’m not as popular as I used to be. People are intrigued by me. My life is like a film and I get portrayed as the baddie all the time.”
