On Wednesday morning, Katie Price paid a moving tribute to the eldest child Harvey as he celebrated his 18th birthday.
The former glamor model shared a nostalgic series of return shots with Harvey – his only son with former Manchester United footballer Dwight Yorke – as he started his special day.
Speaking to Instagram, Katie, 42, shared three separate images of her son, who was born with visual impairment Septo-optic dysplasia and later diagnosed with Prader-Willi syndrome, a genetic disorder that can lead to slow development and obesity.

“They said you could never read, but you like to read to your younger brothers and sisters. “

Three times married, Katie is also the mother of her son Junior, 14, and daughter Princess, 12, with first husband Peter Andre, and son Jett, six, and daughter Bunny, five, with third husband Kieran Hayler.
While Harvey, the eldest child, is the biological son of ex-boyfriend Dwight Yorke, the retired international from Trinidad and Tobago has little to do with the education of the boy.
Katie tried to get her life back on track after being declared bankrupt and a series of personal blows, including the separation from her fiancé, personal trainer Kris Boyson, last year.
