Kieran Hayler has revealed his plans to adopt his stepson Harvey, with Kieran’s wife Katie Price lashing out at the thirteen year old’s biological father Dwight Yorke.
Kieran and Katie tied the knot back in 2013 and in a new interview Kieran has said that he already feels as though Harvey is his.
He told OK! Magazine: “I’ve always thought it would be good because I’d like us all to be connected. He is my child at the end of the day.
"Why not actually make him mine, because he feels like he’s mine anyway? He’s my stepson no matter what happens.”
The couple already have two-year-old Jett and one-year-old Bunny together with Katie also being mum to Princess and Junior, who she had with her ex-husband Peter Andre.
Referring to Harvey’s dad, Dwight, the former glamour model shared: “I’ve sent him pictures of Harvey but I never get anything back. Anyone can fill a pram, but it takes a real man to be a father.
"I think he’s an absolute fool and it’s a shame Harvey hasn’t had the support he deserves from him.”
Harvey suffers with Prader-Willi syndrome, autism, ADHD, and is blind and back when Peter and Katie were married the ‘Mysterious Girl’ singer spoke about adopting his then-wife’s son.
However, in 2009 Peter claimed that Katie prevented this, sharing: “Unfortunately, I’m not allowed to adopt him and it’s not going to be an easy road. I love him.”
More recently he credited Harvey for teaching him how to be a dad to his two biological children with Katie as well as his second daughter, Amelia, who he had with wife Emily.
He said in 2014: “It was Harvey who taught me to be a father before I became a biological dad. He changed me.”
