    Katie Price wants her son Harvey to get to know his father Dwight Yorke

    Former footballer Dwight, 49, has not been involved in 18-year-old Harvey's life so far but Katie is optimistic that Dwight will watch the upcoming documentary about their son – who suffers with a number of health conditions including blindness, ADHA and Prader-Willi syndrome, a genetic disorder which affects his development – and reach out


    She told The Sun newspaper: "His dad has never stuck up for him. It's a weird one - I don't know why and I don't understand why he doesn't want to be in touch.

    "I would love Dwight to watch the documentary and reach out to Harvey. I've always said the door is open for Dwight when he wants to get in touch."

    Katie would also love for Harvey to get to know Dwight's son - who was born in 2007.

    She said: "At the end of the day Harvey has done nothing wrong, he's innocent and deserves to know his dad and meet his half-brother."

    Meanwhile, Katie recently revealed she has made the “heartbreaking” decision to send Harvey to a residential college, which she hopes will be able to teach him how to have a more independent life and learn new skills.

    She said: “It’s so upsetting to think I won’t see him every day but this is the best thing for Harvey and we have to think positively because I don’t want him to think I’m just getting rid of him.

    “This is his chance to live an independent life, learn skills and socialise with people other than me.

    Katie has spent six months visiting colleges for children with autism and learning disabilities in order to find the best place for Harvey, and is hoping he’ll be able to start at their top choice later this year.

    And the ‘My Crazy Life’ star – who is also mother to Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, whom she has with her ex-husband Peter Andre, and Jett, seven, and Bunny, six, whose father is her former spouse Kieran Hayler – says she’s now trying to make sure her son is “used” to her not being around all the time so that he’s ready for his big move.

    She added: “I’m trying to get him used to me not being there all the time. But he’ll call on his iPad and say, ‘Mum, I need you’, and I run to him.

    “When he’s three hours away it will break my heart because I won’t be able to get there as I’ve got to juggle him with my other kids.

    “When he goes to college he will learn to be an adult. He says now, ‘Mummy, I’m not a boy, I’m a man.’

    “The other kids are excited for him - they want to see what he can do. But I think they’ll find it hard when he’s not around on weekends.”
