Glamour model Jordan has told a newspaper she is five months pregnant.

The 26-year-old, whose real name is Katie Price, is expecting a child with her singer fiancÚ Peter Andre.

The pair told the Sun that they are "ecstatic" but had delayed announcing the pregnancy until a medical check-up confirmed the child was healthy.

Jordan, who is bidding to represent the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest, has a two-year-old son, who was born blind, with footballer Dwight Yorke.

The boy, called Harvey, was born with a condition called optic nerve hypoplasia.

The couple told the paper: "We apologise for not confirming this information earlier, but we have been awaiting the all-clear from a scan.

"This was of particular importance due to the health complications with baby Harvey."

The couple are due to marry in September.

They met on the ITV's reality show I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!

Jordan is one of five acts vying for the Eurovision honour, alongside previous contestant Gina G and TV talent show hopefuls Javine and Andy Scott Lee.

The winning act will be chosen by the public in the BBC One show Making Your Mind Up on 5 March.

The Eurovision final in Kiev, Ukraine, is due to take place on 21 May - when Jordan will be eight months pregnant.
