Katie Price: I wanted to call my baby 'Duchess Kate'

Katie Price has revealed that she wanted to call her baby daughter "Duchess Kate", but her husband objected.

The glamour model also considered several Disney-themed monikers, before eventually naming the child Bunny.

When asked which names were on their shortlist, she added to OK! magazine: "Lady, Disney, Precious, Bambi, Ethel, Peggy.

"Because we have Princess we couldn't call this baby something like Helen or Lisa, not that there's anything wrong with those names, but they don't go with Princess [Tiaamii, her seven-year-old daughter].

"I wanted to call her Duchess Kate or just Duchess, but Kieran didn't like that, so we've chosen Bunny, which we both like."

The 36-year-old says that Bunny wakes up a lot in the night to "punish" cheating husband Kieran Hayler for his infidelity.

She previously threatened to divorce the personal trainer after discovering he cheated on her with her good friends Jane Pountney and Chrissy Thomas, and now she believes their second child together - who was born six weeks premature - is wreaking revenge on her behalf.

She joked: "I had the most stressful pregnancy, and they say babies sense everything, I think she's making me pay for it because she's more difficult than Jett!

"She's awake all the time and Kieran is like: 'Oh my God, what is she like?' And I'm like: 'Yeah, you caused me to be stressed and now she's punishing you!' I wind him up about it."

But Price also admitted having baby Bunny - who was born on August 4 - has left Kieran "really upset" about his past mistakes and insists he is determined to get things right with their daughter after being unfaithful while the former glamour model was pregnant with their 13-month-old son Jett.

She said: "Kieran and I are back to normal. He hates that he did it to me and beats himself up about it so much.

"I think having a baby has made him realise what he missed out on with Jett. He's been really upset about that.

"Now he's stuck by my side, and I know some people will say: 'He should have done, after what he did,' but what's important to me is that he's made a change and he hasn't slipped up at all.

"I feel like I've got Kieran back now, and he regrets what he's done.

"He feels bad because he should have been there for me and Jett. He's gutted and you can see it in his face.

"Kieran has changed. If he hadn't, then he would have been gone. It's onwards and upwards now."

Price also has 12-year-old son Harvey from her previous relationship with Dwight Yorke and nine-year-old son Junior and seven-year-old daughter Princess Tiaamii from her failed marriage to Peter Andre.
