Katie Price and her Love Island boyfriend Carl Woods are now engaged after a whirlwind romance.
Speaking of the happy news Katie told OK! Magazine: “It’s refreshing to be with a man that if I decided I never wanted to work again, he’d look after me. I just love him.”
The 42-year-old explained that although they have only been together 10 months, his proposal did not come as a shock.
She said: “We’d spoken about it a lot, so I knew he was going to, I just didn’t know when. It was amazing. Carl asked my mum and dad for permission – and Junior!”
The full story of how 31 year old Carl Woods got down on one knee to pop the question to mum-of-five Katie will be available to read in OK! magazine next week with exclusive quotes, pictures and videos and much more.
But as you wait to read it, let’s take a look back at who else the mum-of-five has dated before meeting The One…
Katie Price and Teddy Sheringham (1996)
Katie left her first boyfriend for footballer Teddy. However it wasn’t to last between the model and former England player; they ended things after the papers found out.
Katie Price and Warren Furman (1996-1998)
Warren is an ex-Gladiator who went by the name of Ace. He proposed to the 19-year-old beauty soon after meeting her, but they called it off after two years.
Katie Price and Ralf Schumacher (1998)
Katie had a brief fling with German racing car driver, Ralf, who is the brother of Michael Schumacher.
Katie Price and Dane Bowers (1998-2000)
Katie raced away from Ralf and got into a relationship with Dane Bowers, who she proceeded to date for two years. This was an important relationship for Katie and she was heartbroken when the relationship with the Another Level singer ended.
During her appearance on Celebrity Big Brother in 2011, Katie said: “He was the only guy who completely taught me about having your heartbroken.” In 2016 she also told a crowd of people that Dane was “the love of my life” during a speech when she reunited with her ex at a Christmas party.
Apparently his friendship with Victoria Beckham was the cause of the split, however Dane gives another reason: “At the time I was quite jealous. She stopped doing all the nudie shoots, the really naughty things. Then she did one just to spite me and I said if you do it I’ll leave you and she did it.”
Katie Price and Dwight Yorke (2000-2001)
The Loose Women panellist met Dwight in a London club and they ended up dating for year. The former Aston Villa footballer is the father of Katie’s first child, Harvey, who is autistic, partially-blind and has Prader-Willis syndrome.
Dwight has been a totally absent parent to Harvey and has even disputed that he is his father. According to Katie he only spoke to his son on his tenth birthday after her mum called his manager.
In her autobiography, Love, Lipstick and Lies, Katie wrote: "It’s such a shame. All I can say is that he is missing out on a very special little boy. Personally, I think he is scared of seeing Harvey… Dwight should try. He would get so much love in return."
Katie Price and Gareth Gates (2001)
The same year that singer Gareth Gates came runner up on Pop Idol, he also started dating Katie. In fact, he lost his virginity to the buxom blonde.
While Katie was happy to tell the world about her and Gareth, he denied the whole thing. But recently he said of the affair: “I don’t regret sleeping with Jordan. It was an amazing time. I wish I hadn’t lied about it though.”
He added: “At the end of Pop Idol I did have a brief relationship with Jordan. I was 17 years old… I was pursued by her. I was bemused as to why she went to the press as I see relationships as private."
Gareth continued: "I shouldn’t have denied it, but I did. I was naive. But I have learnt a lot from this experience." He took a break from the spotlight shortly after the news broke of their affair.
Katie Price and Scott Sullivan (2004)
The busty businesswoman dated Scott, the son of a multimillionaire, but they called it a day when she went into the jungle on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, where she met husband Peter Andre.
Katie Price and Peter Andre (2004–2009)
The nation watched their romance blossom on I’m A Celeb, before they wed in a huge ceremony, covered exclusively by OK! magazine. They went on to have two children together; Princess Tiaamii Crystal Esther Andre and Junior Savvy Andreas Andre.
When Peter filed for divorce from Katie in 2009 she was shocked, saying: “When Pete left me, I was devastated and I went out drinking and partying.
"It was my way of melting down – I felt like everyone hated me and none of it was my decision. My life fell apart.
"When I’m single, I’m bad. When I’m in a miserable relationship, I’m bad, but when I’m in a good relationship, I’m ‘happy Kate.’"
She added: "I never wanted a divorce from Peter. That was his decision, not mine. He’s never, to this day, told me the reason why. We don’t speak. Too much has gone on. I’ll never speak to him again."
The couple have since gone on to make up, though, and co-parent their children together.
Katie Price and Alex Reid (2009-2011)
Katie and former cage-fighter Alex, met at Michele Heaton’s 30th birthday and soon after eloped to Las Vegas to get married.
Alex blames Katie for telling the world about his alter-ego Roxanne saying: “The only reason people know about Roxanne is because she exposed me at her book launch”
Katie Price and Danny Cipriani (2011)
Katie was in a short relationship with Danny in 2011, but ended things when she caught the rugby star in bed with another woman. In her book she described the moment she walked into his bedroom and saw her lover having sex.
"’Hiya,’ I said – sounding calm even though I felt anything but. "’Danny,’ I said, sounding more together than I was feeling, ‘I want you to know that I forgive you, but I never forget.’"
Katie Price and Leandro Penna (2011 – 2012)
Argentinian model Leandro dated Katie twice over the space of two years. However it is is thought they split due to language barrier issues as, reportedly, they had to use Google Translate to communicate.
Katie Price and Kieran Hayler (2012-2019)
After a characteristically whirlwind romance, Katie and Kieran got married in the Bahamas and then had two children: Bunny and Jet.
