Jett Riviera, thoughts?

According to the paper he was 8 weeks premature and born whilst she was on holiday.

Sounds like he should be in Grease.

Hope mum and Jett are ok.

mynameisslimshady · 18/08/2013 01:41

Sounds like the name of a holiday company Grin

Hope Katie and Jett are doing well, must have been scary going into early labour away from home.

Here is what was said -

Katie Price has given birth to a baby boy, who was born eight weeks premature weighing just 5lb 2oz.

Jett Riviera was delivered by emergency caesarian at a hospital abroad after Katie, 35, developed a potentially life-threatening infection.

The baby’s heart rate fell dangerously low.

She said: “I went through a nightmare. The baby’s heart rate was also really low. The next thing I know the nurse is in my room saying get ready now.”

Katie was forced to give birth last week without husband Kieran Hayler, 26, because he was not allowed in the operating theatre.

She was allowed to give Jett a quick kiss before he was whisked to a special care unit.

Last night it was confirmed that little Jett is “doing well” in hospital.

Katie has three other children, Harvey, 11, Junior, eight, and Princess, six.

She spends her days at hospital with Jett and her evenings at a villa nearby.

When did she have him? I would have thought she would be in hospital for ages after having an infection and a section. Seems so soon to be doing all that running about as well.

It's not that bad, nothing I would choose but it's not ridiculous.

Hope all is going well, he's 8 weeks early.

BinarySolo · 18/08/2013 02:16

He wasn't a bad weight considering how early he was. My Ds was born 2 1/2 weeks early and was only 5 lbs 11. I like the name Jett. Not sure about Riviera tho. Sounds a bit like when you make your pornstar/romance novelist names.

TeaAndSconesTwice · 18/08/2013 08:32

Yes I thought he weight was good for 8 weeks premature.

Not sure about the name, I suppose it's more tame than "princess" Wink

You don't actually think he was a full 8 weeks premature, do you? At that weight? More likely that she got knocked up just after she started dating her latest husband!

Arisbottle · 18/08/2013 09:00

What a pleasant post.

HowlerMonkey · 18/08/2013 09:04

I've heard some people say they tend to have big babies and others have smaller ones. Both my kids were full term and relatively small. It's possible her babies tend towards the larger side and so that birth weight is in line with the eventual full-term weight.

Judge much, Betsy? Hmm

BetsyJPierce · 18/08/2013 09:07

I was just being chatty - not trying to make waves.

It's a bit hard bit to judge have opinions of a woman who makes it her job to sell herself and her life, though. Grin

BetsyJPierce · 18/08/2013 09:07

*hard NOT to judge

BetsyJPierce · 18/08/2013 09:08

As you we're.

BetsyJPierce · 18/08/2013 09:10

Oh ffs. I can't even flounce a thread with dignity this morning! I need coffee.

And, for what it's worth, I like the name Jett.

nocarsgo · 18/08/2013 09:15

There's been a lot if gossip flying around that the baby isn't her husband's, and she recruited him for publicity (and a nice chunk of money and fame for him) and predicted an "early" birth. Over 5lb at 32 weeks is rather unusual. Some are saying she planned to give birth in Spain to avoid questions about the baby's gestation.

Shameless gossip: I love it Grin

Snazzyenjoyingsummer · 18/08/2013 09:20

Where is this gossip to be found?

Jett wouldn't be my choice but there's a lot worse.

It's in the mirror online and twitter, yes she is married to an ex stripper now Shock can't remember when she got married think it was around dec/jan just gone.

There's a 41 page thread in the Showbiz section of the Digital Spy forums if you're interested.

Apparently she announced the pregnancy in February? Well, if she was due mid-October then she would have conceived in January

NandH · 18/08/2013 10:13

Aww hope they're both doing well! He's a very good weight! Dd was born 8 weeks early weighing 3lb 10oz!

Sparklingbrook · 18/08/2013 10:14

There is something extremely chinny reckon about this latest pregnancy. I can't put my finger on it but I feel things may not be what they seem.

AS this thread is in Sleb Twaddle I reserve my right to say that. Smile

TeaAndSconesTwice · 18/08/2013 10:17

Sparkling I agree with you!
If conceived in jan and announced in feb she would have only been 4-6 weeks when announced, now we all know Katie doesn't announce before the 12 week mark because of her past mc history.

Well she was on Loose Women before the schools broke up saying she was due 'any day' . Confused

Bump mainly covered with a huge scarf throughout.....

ilovesmarties · 18/08/2013 10:52

Betsy both my boys were prem. One 6 weeks early weighing 5lbs and one 8 weeks early also weighing 5lbs so weight perfectly reasonable. Not a fan of Katie but wish her best of luck as having a prem baby is an awful and extremely stressful experience.

patienceisvirtuous · 18/08/2013 11:00

Definitely iffy. She has kept the bump hidden the whole pregnancy which is unlike her. Maybe she hasn't been pregnant and used a Spanish surrogate or something
