Katie Value celebrates son Harvey’s weight reduction with new photograph

Katie Price celebrated her son Harvey’s weight loss on Sunday as she showed off his impressive performance with a new photo.

The 44-year-old TV personality previously shared her concerns over Harvey’s “life-threatening” weight, which was caused by Prader-Willi Syndrome, which causes an excessive appetite.

Katie gave an Instagram update on his fitness journey and revealed she is a “proud mum” while Harvey remains healthy.

Harvey is one of Katie’s five children; She shares eldest Junior, 17, and eldest Princess, 15, with ex-husband Peter Andre. While she’s also mom to Jett, nine, and Bunny, eight, from her relationship with Kieran Hayler.

It comes as the model treated Harvey to a burger and cake after his strict new diet resulted in an impressive two-stone weight loss.

While living in a nursing home, Harvey has managed to lose five pounds on a special diet, with Katie rewarding his efforts with a meal.

In a TikTok video, Katie was heard saying, “You’ve lost so much weight haven’t you… we’re having a treat day.”

Harvey looked in high spirits as he cheered on ‘burger night’ and beamed at his mum as she waited for her food to arrive.

Katie captioned the video: “Harvey lost two stone and can still have a treat day.”

WHAT IS PRADER-WILLI SYNDROME?

Prader-Willi Syndrome is a rare genetic condition that causes problems including constant cravings for food, restricted growth, and reduced muscle tone.

Other potential problems include learning difficulties, lack of sexual development, and behavioral problems such as tantrums or stubbornness.

The rare condition, which affects one in 15,000 children born in England, is caused by a defect on chromosome number 15 – and it occurs randomly.

Since there is no cure, treatment aims to manage the symptoms – with parents of sufferers being urged to encourage their children to stick to a healthy, balanced diet.

Children with the syndrome can eat up to six times more than children of the same age – and still feel hungry.

It was an impressive milestone for Harvey, after Katie previously revealed she was forced to padlock the fridge as she tried to help him keep his weight under control.

In October, the mother-of-five took to Instagram to share a cute video of Harvey wearing bunny ears and eating carrots while she discussed his fitness.

While enjoying a snack in the video, he said, “Eating carrots makes me feel healthy!”

It’s not the first time Katie has documented Harvey’s health journey after her son hit 29 stone last year.

In December, Katie revealed that Harvey had lost eight pounds in a week after beginning a lifestyle overhaul.

Opening up about his health journey, the ex-Page 3 star said OK! Magazine: “We have some gym clothes for him and put everything in Carl’s garage.

“Prep Kitchen will also send meals to his school. We want to try everything to help him lose weight. He’s lost 4kg this week so at least he’s lost some.’
