Well, this is a first for her!
Despite appearing with her children in magazine shoots and several reality shows, Katie now says the children will not be on her new reality show. She wrote:
start filming for my new reality show this week junior and princess won't be in any of my shows or any photo shoots again x
I want to withdraw them from the public eye as I want them to have as normal a childhood as possible and want them to choose what they want
One follower replied to Katie's tweet, saying, "It's a bit late for that, isn't it!" in which she responded, "its not to[o] late nothings to late."
A spokesperson for Katie even released a statement confirming that she will keep her children out of the spotlight:
I believe Junior and Princess are now of an age where they are starting to become aware of the attention they are subject to and it is beginning to impact on them.
If their lives remain in the public eye they could become the subject of unnecessary interest and attention of many other pupils, their families, strangers and so on.
I don't want that. Its not healthy for them. I want them to live normal and ordinary lives as privately as possible, to enjoy their childhood without unnecessary and unwelcome attention, as far away as can be from public fuss and interest. There are too, of course, security implications.
Therefore I cannot justify to myself putting my children into the public domain to make my photo-shoots and TV programmes more attractive and more valuable when it is starting to impact on their ability to grow up normally. I have to put my children first and I hope people will accept this decision on that basis."
Interestingly, Katie only mentioned her two children with Peter Andre, Junior and Princess Tiaamii, and failed to confirm whether or not she would keep her her first son, Harvey, whose father is soccer player Dwight Yorke, out of the public eye as well.
That doesn't seem fair to Harvey!
This just smells like another publicity stunt to us. We wouldn't put it past Katie!
