"I went three times to abort him but in the end I just couldn’t do it."

Price explains her decision was difficult as she was not with Harvey's father, footballer, Dwight York any more.

“I thought I’m young, I wasn’t with the guy anymore. I didn’t know what was going to happen with my career, but then I thought stuff it, I’m earning money. I’m going to take a risk and do it. I’m glad I did," Price said.

“They gave me counselling each time I went there and they talk about why you want it. But I carried on having him. They scan you and you hear a heartbeat. Some women are pressured by the men. There’s so many reasons why they do it.”

Price admitted she has terminated a pregnancy before.

“I’ve had a couple, I’m just so bloody fertile as you can tell. I think six/eight weeks is OK but anymore than that isn’t," Price said.

Harvey is Price's eldest child. She is also mother to Junior, 10, Princess, 8, Jett, 2 and Bunny,1.
