Kieran Hayler has opened up about the realities of co-parenting with ex wife Katie Price , with whom he shares six-year-old Jett and five-year-old Bunny.
The couple married in 2013 after a whirlwind romance but called it quits in 2017 after a series of rows and allegations of cheating.
Since then they have agreed a two days on, two days off approach to childcare – although Kieran has admitted this can often be disrupted.
Speaking in his new column for New magazine, he said: “With Katie’s lifestyle I end up having them so much more. Sometimes she has to work so it’ll mean I have to have them on a day that’s not scheduled. That’s fine – I’d drop anything for my kids – but she has to make sure she gives me some notice!”
The 32-year-old dad also claimed things are also one-sided when it comes to financing his kids with Katie.
He said that he and Katie pay their own separate way when it comes to the upkeep of Jett and Bunny, “when it comes to school uniforms or a school trip, which I think we should go halves on,” Kieran says, “I tend to pay the whole lot.”
“I was bullied as a child and I want to make sure my kids are never in a situation where they don’t have the right uniform or miss out on trips. I don’t want them to be a target like I was.”
Kieran also says that he stays in regular contact with Katie to discuss the children.
The former stripper said he doesn’t need to know the ‘ins and outs’ of their mum’s personal life so he had created a ‘well oiled business arrangement’ to allow them to discuss their kids ‘on a level’.
Kieran had Jett and Bunny over Christmas this year while Katie had a year off from hosting.
Since then she’s been spotted out in Thailand with her eldest son Harvey.
It was reported today that Katie’s trip to South East Asia means she wont see her kids with Kieran until after they’ve already returned to school.
