Katie Price has given fans an update on her baby son Jett Riviera, saying the newborn is still in hospital with breathing problems.

The model and author welcomed her fourth child earlier this month, after being taken to hospital with complications while on a holiday to Europe with husband Kieran Hayler.

Katie was told her amniotic sac had torn, leaving her child vulnerable to infection. Little Jett Riviera was born around eight weeks early via Caesarean section. He weighed 5lbs 2oz.

It seems the circumstances surrounding Jett's arrival has only strengthened their already tight bond, with Kieran tweeting on 22 August: "Its been a tough 3 weeks but we are closer and more in love than ever before. I love my wife ‪@MissKatiePrice."

And Jett may only be a few weeks old, but Kieran is a smitten father already, telling fans this week: "Love my little Jett Riviera Hayler. Such a proud daddy. He is getting stronger everyday. Thanks for everyone's support."

Katie is also mum to kids Harvey, 11, Junior, 8, and Princess, 6.
