Price: 'i lost baby just weeks before andre left me'

LONDON: Glamour model Katie Price has revealed she miscarried her fourth child just weeks before she was dumped by estranged Aussie pop star husband Peter Andre.

The celebrity couple, who documented their every move with reality shows in the U.K., split in May (09) after Andre had had enough of the sexy Brit's wild ways.

Price has since insisted the break-up was purely down to Andre and that she never wanted to head to the divorce courts.

Now, in a one-off interview with America's Got Talent judge Pierce Morgan, Price reveals she lost a child just ten-weeks into the pregnancy - a month before Andre walked out.

She tells Morgan in the interview, set to be televised in the U.K. on Saturday (11Jul09), "We had the scan and…(the doctor) was poking the thing around on my belly and it was moving, and he said that he can't see a heartbeat but he said: 'Let me check, so let me do some blood tests.'

"I went in thinking, 'He’s going to be great, he’s going to see a heartbeat.' And it was on the screen and you know they poke the thing around, he said, 'No it’s, it’s died, it’s gone.'

"I was confused... I said to him, 'But the HGC (hormone) levels have gone up, so surely that means there is a pregnancy?' And inside I’m thinking, 'If I wait will it form, will a heartbeat come?'

"All this goes through your head. And obviously it didn’t. I said, 'Well, what am I going to do?... And he said, 'Well, we can terminate it tonight.'

"So I had to be there, I had to be put to sleep and have it terminated."

And Price admits that the last few months have been some of the hardest of her life: "Emotionally for any woman, whether you’re in the media or not, to have a baby died... and then your husband wants a divorce, split up. That’s a lot for someone to take in."

She has reportedly hired Sir Paul MCCartney's divorce lawyer to help her fight Andre in court for custody of their two children, as well as Price's disabled son Harvey with soccer player Dwight Yorke
