Katie Price has made no secret of her desire for a baby with boyfriend of six months Carl Woods – publicly ditching her contraception and even doing a pregnancy test on her YouTube channel.

“But it also brought up mixed emotions. Katie has been trying to fall pregnant and this has only made her desire for a baby even stronger."
The source added: "She’s now telling everyone she will be pregnant by the end of the year and is doing all she can to make it happen. She’s bragged that she and Carl are having constant sex. She’s joked that they’re exhausted but said they need to do it as often as they can.”
Insiders recently claimed that Katie – who is already mum to Harvey, 18, with Dwight Yorke, Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, with Peter Andre, and Jett, seven, and Bunny, six, with Kieran Hayler – had felt panicked after failing to fall pregnant on a three-week trip to the Maldives with Carl.

And last year, Katie made no secret of her struggles to conceive while she was dating personal trainer Kris Boyson.
Visiting a fertility clinic on her show Katie Price: My Crazy Life, she was warned by experts time could be running out for another baby.
“Katie used to joke about how easy it was to fall pregnant but now she’s in her forties, she has to face the reality that she would be having a geriatric pregnancy,” the source continued.
“But she’s desperate for a baby. She loves having a newborn to dote on and she loves the closeness and connection she feels with a man when she’s expecting. She feels like she’s showered with so much attention and affection.”
But the insider added that while Carl – who gifted Katie a puppy for their six-month anniversary – is eager to become a father for the first time, pals fear the pressure to fall pregnant could be taking a toll on their romance.
The source said, “Katie and Carl are in love, but friends worry that the pressure to have a baby is taking the romance out of their relationship. They should still be at the stage where they’re having sex because they can’t get enough of each other, not because of a baby. Friends know Katie wants a baby but have said it shouldn’t be at the risk of her relationship.”
