Katie Price has said she was ‘terrified’ her son Harvey was having a heart attack when he was rushed to hospital recently.
The former glamour model’s eldest son Harvey, 18, was rushed to hospital for urgent medical attention last week after he fell ill with needle-like chest pains.
Katie and her family had been celebrating her daughter Princess’ 13th birthday at the time, with the star later reassuring fans that Harvey was home and feeling fine after undergoing multiple tests.
Speaking about the hospital dash, Katie told OK! magazine that she was ‘terrified’ Harvey was having a heart attack.
She said: ‘Harvey had chest pains during the day so I panicked that he might have coronavirus. I was also terrified he might be having a heart attack because he’s high risk due to his obesity.’
Harvey is blind and autistic, and has also been diagnosed with Prader-Willi syndrome – which affects his speech and movement.
Katie has previously said she also worries over Harvey’s weight as he is 27-and-a-half stone and often gets ‘out of breath’.
‘With Harvey and all his health conditions, you simply can’t mess about,’ she stressed, adding: ‘I always stay really calm in situations like that because I don’t want to worry the kids.’
The star is also mum to Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, who she shares with ex Peter Andre, and son Jett, six, and Bunny, five, her children with ex-husband Kieran Hayler.
After testing Harvey for coronavirus, signs of a heart attack or blood clots, doctors couldn’t find anything seriously wrong with Harvey and said he may have a chest infection – allowing him to return home that night.
A rep for Katie at the time had told Metro.co.uk: ‘Harvey is home and resting after his medical ordeal yesterday. Harvey will be making a full recovery.’
Katie had shared a video to update fans on Harvey’s condition, with the teen seen telling his mum he felt ‘fine’ and that he loves her.
The pair even joked that Harvey – who Katie has with ex Dwight Yorke – had been flirting with the ambulance staff, calling them ‘beautiful’.
