Katie Price (born May 22, 1978), born Katie Infield, and better known as Jordan, is a British glamour model, most famous for the large size of her breasts and the reports of her personal life in British tabloid newspapers.
She was born in Brighton. When she was four, her father left home. After a while her mother, Amy, remarried to Paul Price, and Jordan changed her name to Katie Price.
In the June 7, 2001 British General Election, Jordan ran as a candidate in Manchester, England (using her real name) under a slogan of "For a Bigger and Betta Future". As a part of her election campaign - which was intended to bring a little fun into a dull election - she promised free breast implants, increases on nudist beaches, and a ban on parking tickets. In the end, Jordan won 713 votes or 1.8% of the vote.
On May 27, 2002, she gave birth to a baby boy she named Harvey after her grandfather. Harvey's father was the Manchester United footballer Dwight Yorke, although again the relationship broke up before the child was born. Harvey was born at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, his birth being induced when he was two weeks overdue. He was found to be blind, having a condition known as septo-optic dysplasia, meaning that his optic nerve hadn't developed correctly. Media coverage alleged that Jordan's alcohol consumption while pregnant might be to blame, but doctors said that it was almost certainly caused by a genetic disorder. His condition is thought to be incurable.
That same year, Jordan was treated for cancer. She had a leiomyosarcoma on her finger, this being a rare form of malignant tumour which attacks smooth muscle tissue and can spread around the body. She had it removed at the nearby Nuffield Hospital.
