Katie Price said that she would “love” to have two-year-old Olivia join her family after sharing an appeal to find her a permanent home for the toddler.

Olivia was born with complex health needs, has a cleft lip and palate, and had to have her stomach tied so that she’s not sick.

Devon-based adoption agency Families For Children launched an appeal to find a home for the “beautiful” and “inquisitive” little girl before she is placed in permanent care.

The adoption agency set up Family For Me, a project to help find homes for the “harder to place” children, like Olivia.

The Sun shared their appeal to find Olivia a permanent home to prevent her from being placed into the care system.

Katie, 41, was so moved by the appeal that she shared it with her 2.6 million Instagram followers, writing: “I would love to (have) her in my family" with heart emojis.

Katie has been open about her attempts to expand her family and is hoping to have her first child with fiancé Carl Woods, 32.

She told The Sun: “Yes I absolutely want more kids, and I have always said that I will adopt.”

Katie’s son Harvey has complex needs as he suffers from Prader Willi syndrome, is on the autism spectrum and partially blind.

Her BBC documentary Harvey and Me followed the mother-of-five as she tried to find a specialist college for disabled Harvey.

The personal and critically acclaimed documentary received a National Television Award nomination.

Katie continued to tell The Sun: “I’ve proved to the public with Harvey that I know how to handle children with severe needs, I know I could provide a good home for little Olivia.”

Fiancé Carl Woods spoke on Steph’s Packed Lunch earlier this month about fears that his steroid usage in youth could stand in the way of having children.

He said: “I've got a history of using steroids when I was younger. It's always been in the back of my mind what potential damage I may or may not have done when I was taking them.”

The couple are reportedly planning to have IVF.
