Katie Price recently said that her son Harvey needs to shed some of his 29 stone weight or else he’ll ‘end up dead’
Katie Price has opened up about her struggle to find clothes to fit her eldest son Harvey.
The former glamour model, 42, revealed she’s finally found her 18-year-old son pyjamas in a size 7XL after his weight reached 29 stone.
She recently shared her fears that Harvey, who has Prader-Willi Syndrome and is partially blind and autistic, could “end up dead” if he doesn’t lose weight.
Harvey’s genetic condition can cause excessive hunger and Katie has admitted that he can spiral into rages if she tries to curb his over-eating.
The mum-of-five had been on a mission to find PJs to fit the teen and has finally bagged a pair in his size.
Katie posted a snap of her son in his new nightwear to her Instagram, gushing over how “cute” he looks.
She wrote: “How cute does Harvey look in his pjs he is so tall and taller than the tree he loves coming away especially @henllehall_holidays log cabins wish we could pick it up and take it come.
“And even better finally found size 7xl pjs to fit him from @bigclothing4u_.”
Katie recently revealed that she’s struggled to keep Harvey’s weight under control as he can spiral into rages if she denies him food.
“I’ve had to replaster my walls because he’ll bash holes in them with his head,” she revealed.
“People say to me, ‘Why don’t you just not let him eat?’ But they don’t understand. He’ll smash things or headbutt the walls if I say ‘no’ to him.”
Earlier this year, Harvey was rushed to hospital, where doctors admitted him to intensive care for more than a week, after struggling with breathing issues and thought to be at risk of organ failure.
And Katie’s getting innovative in order to help him lose some weight, appealing to followers to help her find a rowing machine or a treadmill.
She’s even considering painting her gym equipment green to get frog-obsessed Harvey interested.
“There’s no time to wait,” she remarked, “he has to lose weight now.”
Katie, who shares Harvey with Dwight Yorke, also has Junior, 16, and Princess, 13, with Peter Andre, and Jett, six, and Bunny, five, with Kieran Hayler.
She’s currently on the mend after a nasty accident over the summer saw her broke both feet.
And through it all, she’s been cared for by boyfriend Carl Woods, who she went official with over the summer.
Carl, who previously did a stint on Love Island, has the stamp of approval from Harvey as well – who melted hearts when he asked if he could call Carl “daddy”.
Meanwhile, rumours are flying that Katie could soon welcome baby number six to her brood after she and Carl jetted off on a “baby-making” getaway to the Maldives.
