Katie Price has confirmed she's eager to add a sixth child to her family, but this time around she's hoping to adopt from abroad.

The 38-year-old revealed in a Facebook Live chat that she's started proceedings with her lawyers but was reluctant to go into too much detail.

"I will want more kids but I think I'll adopt next, that's my new thing," she said.

"I've started up to adopt a child abroad. I've already started the process of it so fingers crossed. To start it, you have to do everything legally and go down that road. The probably isn't just getting a child, that's the easy bit, it's the legal stuff and the checks."

Katie said she wasn't sure what country she would adopt from, but said it had been a long-term goal to give a child a home.

"I've always said in interviews for many years that I'd love to adopt and this is the right time I feel to do it," she said. "It's been something I've always wanted to do, even when I was back with Pete [Andre]."

"I won't go too much into detail now because I could sit here all night and talk about it," she added. "If I can offer a home to another child, why not? I would have loads. If I have the money, love and support it's better than a child being dead, not having a home or being an orphan. If I can give them a home, why not?"

Katie added that she still wants to give birth to another child in the future but for now she's giving her body a break. "I don't want any myself physically at the moment, I feel like I'm a baby machine, I have to give my body a rest."

She's mum to son Harvey, 14, from her relationship with Dwight Yorke, son Junior, ten, and daughter Princess, eight, from her marriage to Peter Andre, and son Jett, three, and daughter Bunny, two, with third husband Kieran Hayler.

There had been rumours of a sixth pregnancy over the summer after Katie missed an episode of Loose Women and a press call for her new TLC TV show, Katie Price's Pony Club.

However, she denied it saying: "When any of us are ill everyone knows about it. If Joe Bloggs is ill no one cares. It's such a big thing when I'm ill. So, no I'm not pregnant, I haven't had surgery – well, not since a few weeks ago and you knew about that!"
