Katie Price's ex Kieran Hayler says he's 'so proud' of former stepson Harvey after BBC documentary

KATIE Price's ex Kieran Hayler praised his former stepson Harvey following his BBC documentary, Harvey and Me.

The 33-year-old took to Instagram yesterday to share a heartwarming throwback snap of the teen holding hands with his half-siblings Jett and Bunny – Kieran's children with ex Katie.

Kieran accompanied the sweet shot with a heartfelt caption, praising Harvey, 19, who has septo-optic dysplasia, autism, and shows characteristics of Prader-Willi Syndrome, and all that he has accomplished.

He penned: "I love your bond with jett and bunny. Always been so strong
so proud of you @officialmrharveyprice" [sic].

Kieran married former glamour model Katie, 42, in the Bahamas on January 16, 2013, after he proposed on Christmas Day 2012.

The former couple met over online chat service Blackberry Messenger in November 2012 – and just two months later they tied the knot.

It was Katie's third marriage, after cage fighter Alex Reid, 45, and singer Peter Andre, 47. During the course of their marriage, Katie and Kieran welcomed son Jett, seven, and daughter Bunny, six.

Kieran also became a stepdad to 19-year-old Harvey, whose father is footballer Dwight Yorke, as well as Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, Katie's children with Peter.

However, the couple split for good in 2018 after heartbroken Katie discovered Kieran had sex with their nanny all over the house — even romping in their children’s bathroom.

Although the couple divorced in 2020, they remain on good terms as they co-parent their children.

Harvey has known a series of step-dads over his life but his biological father Dwight Yorke remains estranged.

Yesterday, The Sun Online exclusively revealed that Katie was left "angry and disappointed" after Harvey’s dad Dwight Yorke failed to get in contact with his disabled son following the airing of their BBC documentary.

Insiders say that Katie hoped their doc, Harvey and Me, would prompt the former footballer to reconnect with his son, who he hasn’t spoken to in over ten years.

But sources say that "Katie hasn’t heard from Dwight, and she’s fuming about it – but as always, has left the door open for him to get in contact in the future".

The friend adds: "She doesn’t expect much from Dwight given that he’s ignored Harvey for a long time, but part of her thought he might see the show and get in contact."

Katie’s rep tells The Sun Online: "Katie is sadly somewhat resolved to this being the usual outcome – Katie has made it quite clear however that the door will always be open to change that at any time."

Harvey has only met his dad 'a handful of times' according to mum Katie – and has never met his half-brother, Dwight’s son.

The former Manchester United and Aston Villa star initially denied that Harvey was his child when Katie – then known as Jordan – revealed she was pregnant.

After a paternity test in 2002, Dwight publicly acknowledged Harvey as his son – but in an interview in 2009, admitted he hadn’t kept in contact for "a combination of different things".

The same year, he wrote in his autobiography that he "wanted to throttle" Katie’s then-husband Peter after he asked to adopt Harvey, calling the move "disrespectful".
