Katie Price made no secret of the fact she desperately wanted to become pregnant on her recent trip to the Maldives, but a source has told new magazine that the star is now panicking that her plan hasn’t worked.
After holidaying on the idyllic Huruelhi Island for almost three weeks with her man, the star wasn’t pregnant by the time she arrived back in the UK on Friday. And an insider claimed the mum-of-five is now “worried” about whether or not it is going to happen.
“She’s apparently been off the pill for a long time and, despite their love-making on holiday, she hasn’t fallen pregnant yet,” the source claimed.
“It’s been seven years since she last conceived, so she’s worried about being able to get pregnant. She’s worried it may not be straightforward. She’s desperate for this baby and to seal the deal with Carl.”

The insider also claimed that Katie, who has been dating the 31-year-old Essex car dealer since June, is convinced that having a child with Carl will mean he will stay with her.
They explained: “Once she’s pregnant with Carl’s baby, she knows he’s not going to go anywhere. I think that’s why she’s thinking about babies. But on the flip side, she is 42 and was told that if she wants a baby, she needs to get going now. Time isn’t her friend.“
Katie, who is already mum to Harvey, 18, with her ex Dwight Yorke, Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, with former husband Peter Andre, and Jett, seven, and Bunny, six, with ex-husband Kieran Hayler, certainly didn’t have any problems conceiving in three of her relationships. In fact, she used to joke about how easily she could get pregnant. “She said in the past she falls pregnant just by looking at a toilet seat,” claimed the source. "But that was when she was younger."
The former glamour model – who will know for sure if she’s pregnant or not when she takes a pregnancy test in a couple of weeks – apparently has a back-up plan if it’s negative.
“She’s looking into going to see a fertility expert and would even fall back on IVF,” the insider revealed. “She’s been told that if she wants a baby, she needs to get going now. Her biological clock is ticking.”
If she’s unsuccessful it sounds like a baby might be off the cards for Katie, with the insider saying the bankrupt star will “definitely not adopt”. They added, “And she probably wouldn’t do surrogacy. I think Katie would get really jealous about another woman carrying Carl’s baby.”
Katie’s rep told new: “Katie and Carl are actively trying for a baby – it has only been four months. Katie is aware, however, as an older mother, nature can take a little longer, but she is quite confident it will happen. As a couple they are devoted to one another.

“Katie has spoken openly in the past regarding other avenues available to her, but at this time it is a bit premature.”
Last year, she revealed on her reality show Katie Price: My Crazy Life her struggles with conceiving while she was in a relationship with Kris Boyson. She visited a fertility clinic during the series to be told that time was running out if she was hoping to have another child.
Back in 2010 she revealed that she and her then-husband Alex Reid were going through IVF to have a baby together.
