DailyMail: Katie Price has spoken for the first time about her desperate bid to conceive a child with husband Alex Reid.


The 32-year-old model, who is already a mother-of-three, even decided to have IVF treatment after failing to fall pregnant with her cage-fighter beau.

Katie makes the revelation in her new autobiography You Only Live Once, serialised in the Daily Mirror.

She writes: 'After marrying Alex I had only one thing on my mind - having another baby. I'd love to have another four, in fact.

'But by April 2010, after we had been trying for eight months, I became so worried we made an appointment with a fertility doctor.'

It was then that Katie started to accept something may be wrong, and decided to speak to the specialist about undergoing ICSI (Intra-cytoplasmic Sperm Injection).

Despite being needle-phobic, Katie gritted her teeth and underwent a series of painful injections in a bid to fall pregnant.

The process involves stimulating egg production. A sperm sample is selected and injected into the egg before the embryo is put back into the uterus when it starts to grow.

While the process has a 65 per cent success rate, Katie and Alex's first attempt proved disappointing for the pair, and they were told just nine of their eggs had taken - the usual number for a successful attempt is 12 or 13.

However, on the second attempt, Katie felt the process had been more successful, and quickly convinced herself she was expecting.
