She recently fuelled rumours that she’s pregnant with her sixth child after revealing that she has embarked on a course of folic acid.
But Katie Price has insisted that she is not already pregnant, but is taking the pregnancy supplement for ‘a bit of help’ after it was ‘recommended by a friend’.
The former glamour model, 42, said she is ‘desperate’ to have another baby and is tracking her ovulation dates with app Maya to try and make this happen.
Supplements: Katie Price has insisted that she is not already pregnant, but is taking folic acid pregnancy for ‘a bit of help’ as she tries for a baby with her new beau Carl Woods
She told The Sun: ‘I’m not pregnant yet so I’ve started taking these supplements – they were recommended by a friend.
‘I’ve never had to take anything to try and get pregnant before but I’m obviously older now so I need a bit of help – I’m desperate for another baby.’
She started taking supplements after she did not fall pregnant over Christmas, as she previously said she would find out on December 29 when her period was due.
The mother-of-five has been open about her efforts to conceive a child with her beau Carl Woods, 31, previously revealing she hoped to see in 2021 pregnant.
Expecting? It comes after the former glamour model, 42, fuelled rumours that she was already pregnant with her sixth child after sharing a snap of a bottle of folic acid on her Instagram
And on Saturday, she fuelled rumours that she was pregnant with her sixth child after sharing a snap of a bottle of folic acid on her Instagram.
Alongside the picture, she teased: ‘Yep it’s that time, get ready @carljwoods. I love you boo.’
Folic acid is the synthetic form of folate, a naturally occurring B vitamin long known to help prevent birth defects when taken regularly by pregnant women.
According to the NHS: ‘If you’re pregnant or trying for a baby, it’s recommended you take folic acid until you’re 12 weeks pregnant. It helps your baby grow normally.’
Katie is already mother to Harvey, 18, Junior, 15, Princess, 13, Jett, seven, and Bunny, six, from three previous relationships.

The TV personality spent Christmas with her family and has been utterly inseparable from her new beau Carl since they went public with their romance in July.
Speaking of their relationship, she told The Sun last week: ‘It’s all happened really fast but I know Carl is the man for me, he’s the one.’
She continued: ‘It would be amazing to enter the New Year with a baby on the way and a ring on my finger.
‘We’ve been trying — I’ll find out if I’m pregnant on the 29th because that’s when my period is due.’
She explained that Carl did not propose at Christmas as it is ‘too cliché’ but that her boyfriend does have big plans to propose in 2021.
Carl also bragged that when they finally do marry it will be like ‘nothing ever done before’ and plans to send her into floods of tears with his proposal.

Speaking about her festive celebrations this year, Katie admitted she has experienced her first sober Christmas and said it makes her ‘sick’ thinking back on her past decisions.
Katie recently opened up about her decision to seek professional help and become an inpatient at The Priory – which she described as ‘the best thing she’s ever done’.
She bravely admitted that she got to ‘breaking point’ where she felt she ‘couldn’t cope’, but thankfully had a wake-up call and put herself into rehab.
And now, Katie said that there is no alcohol in her house at all and proudly admitted that she didn’t think about having a drink on Christmas day this year.
The TV personality was also declared bankrupt in November 2019, after the High Court found she had failed to stick to a plan to repay her debts, estimated to be around £800,000.

Speaking about her bankruptcy, Katie quipped that the presents were from Santa due to her finances, joking her home was like Father Christmas’ grotto.
Katie and her loved ones enjoyed a Christmas meal of pizza this year as she wanted to focus on spending time with her five children and Carl instead.
It was previously reported that Carl spent £10,000 on an engagement ring for Katie in October and plans to ask her son Junior for his permission to marry her.
And Katie’s divorce from ex Kieran Hayler will be finalised in time for the New Year which will leave her free to marry Carl.
The reality TV star and her third ex-husband, 33, separated in March 2018 after five years of marriage and have been waiting almost two years for a divorce.

She shares her two youngest children Jett and Bunny with the former stripper.
While Katie is hoping to wed Carl as she awaits his much-anticipated proposal, Kieran is now engaged to his fiancée Michelle Penticost.
A source previously revealed that the final papers will be filed imminently, meaning that Katie will again be single and free to marry her new beau Carl.
Katie has also been married twice previously – she was wed to Peter Andre from 2005 to 2009 and cage fighter Alex Reid from 2010 to 2012.
She shares her kids Junior and Princess with Peter, 47, while her eldest son Harvey, who has disabilities including blindness, Prader-Willi syndrome and ADHA, does not have a relationship with his biological father, Dwight Yorke.
