It's a boy for Katie Price

London, Aug 18 (IANS) Model Katie Price gave birth to an eight weeks premature baby boy last week. The child has been named Jett Riviera.

It is Price's fourth child and a first with husband Kieran Hayler.

Price, who was rushed to hospital after her amniotic sac - a bag of fluid inside the womb - tore, was only 32 weeks along in her pregnancy. The baby boy was born last week, weighing 5 Ibs, 2oz, following an emergency caesarian in a foreign hospital.

The 35-year-old had reportedly developed a potentially life-threatening infection.

"I went through a nightmare. The baby's heart rate was also really low. The next thing I know the nurse is in my room saying get ready now," Price told mirror.co.uk.

She also has a son, Harvey, 11, from her relationship with footballer Dwight Yorke, as well as Junior, eight, and Princess, six, with ex-husband Peter Andre.
