Katie can’t live with­out Kieran – and he’s not go­ing any­where for now…

Now (UK) - - Cover Story -

De­spite Kieran seem­ingly scor­ing a cheat­ing hat­trick, Katie needs him more than she’d like to ad­mit. He’s still got his feet firmly un­der the ta­ble – which he proved with In­sta­gram videos of him and the kids on their farm, just days after Katie’s an­nounce­ment – and it seems his bond with her son Har­vey could be Kieran’s sav­ing grace.

In­stead of turf­ing her cheat­ing hus­band out on the streets faster than her next spray tan, Katie has al­lowed Kieran to re­main in the fam­ily home. But why is Katie in no rush to see the back of Kieran, de­spite ad­mit­ting that she was fil­ing for di­vorce? Well, Now un­der­stands that Har­vey would strug­gle with­out him.

After for­giv­ing her hus­band for cheat­ing with for­mer best friends Jane Pount­ney and Chrissy Thomas, Katie turned Kieran into a fam­ily man, and last week he put on a full ‘dot­ing dad’ dis­play when he was spot­ted out and about with Har­vey, 15.

It’s clear that Katie’s el­dest – who suf­fers from Prader-willi syn­drome, autism and ADHD – has de­vel­oped a close bond with Kieran, which en­abled grand­mother Amy to take a step back from his care.

Speak­ing about their re­la­tion­ship, Katie pre­vi­ously said: ‘Kieran is so good with [Har­vey], I said to my mum: “Look you've done this for 11 years, you have got a life as well.” It's just me and Kieran that does it now.’

But it’s not just Har­vey, stay-at-home dad Kieran looks after all five of the children – in­clud­ing Ju­nior, 12, and Princess, 10, who she shares with ex-hus­band Peter An­dre, and his bi­o­log­i­cal kids Jett, four, and Bunny, three.

And with Kate’s UK tour set to keep her busy un­til 16 De­cem­ber at the ear­li­est, it’s un­likely that Kieran will be leav­ing any time soon…
