Katie Price's guinea pig gives birth

Katie Price's guinea pig gives birth

Katie Price's guinea pig has given birth.

The 38-year-old television personality has taken to Instagram to share pictures of her newborn skinny pig - a hairless version of the popular household pet - dubbing the tiny creature as "gorgeous."

On one photo of the new arrival with it's mother, the businesswomen wrote: "Ahhh new baby born this morning (sic)"

Another picture featuring the newborn being held by Katie was captioned: "Gorgeous little girl #skinnypig (sic)"

And the skinny pig might not be the only new arrival in Katie's family as the star - who already has five children, Harvey, 14, Junior, 11, Princess, nine, Jett, three, and Bunny, two - previously expressed a wish to have another child of her own, and wants to "buy one abroad".

She said: "I love babies and I was thinking, how can I get one quick? I know it's hard to adopt, so I thought, can't I just buy one abroad?"

The former glamour model isn't giving up on having her own children though, and says her decision to adopt comes as she feels "it's the right time" to do so.

She said: "I've always said I want to adopt a child, I've got five of my own and I'm still going to continue to have my own. I just think it's the right time for me now to adopt a child, I want to adopt from abroad as well ... I would like a newborn, because I've got my kids. If I had an adopted child, that was say five, and that child had problems - behavioural problems not disabilities - then I don't want it to affect my other kids."

Meanwhile, her current husband Kieran Hayler - with whom she shares Jett and Bunny - "doesn't understand" why Katie would want to adopt. "Kieran doesn't understand, he's like, 'Why would you adopt when you can still have your own?' But I've always wanted to adopt, I've got 11 bedrooms and they need to be filled and I don't mean that jokingly, I'm very hands-on with my kids."
