Katie Price has revealed that her ill-fated marriage to Kieran Hayler has finally come to an official end, as they signed divorce papers three years after their split.
The 42-year-old glamour model has revealed to The Sun that she and Kieran, 33, became officially divorced just days ago, paving the way for her to make Carl Woods, 31, husband number four.
She told the publication: ‘Finally, we’ve signed the divorce papers. I’m so happy that I’m free from that marriage. The only good thing that came out of it was my children.

‘I can now continue my life with all the badness behind me. All I can do is wish him luck. I can’t wait to continue my life with Carl.’
Katie and her ex-husband separated in March 2018 after five years of marriage and had been waiting two years for a divorce.
While Katie is hoping to tie the knot with car dealer Carl when he pops the question, Kieran is now engaged to his fiancée Michelle Penticost.
It was reported last year that Carl spent £10,000 on an engagement ring for Katie in October and asked her eldest son Junior, 15, for his permission to marry her.

Over the course of their very tumultuous marriage, Katie accused Kieran of cheating with her best friend of 20 years, Jane Pountney, as well as sleeping with her friend Chrissy Thomas.
In August 2017, she famously claimed Kieran had cheated on her for a third time with their nanny Nikki Brown, resulting in the breakdown of their union.
Katie spilled the beans in an Instagram post in which she wished her ex a ‘happy future’ and admitted that she’ll never give up on her ‘fairtytale ending’.
In a heartfelt post shared with her followers, the star praised her ex for ‘not wanting anything’ from their divorce as she explained their split has been ‘amicable’.

She penned last year: ‘Finally me and Kieran will be divorced in next few days and how amicable it has been and respect he is the first man not wanting anything from our divorce and wish him a happy future with Michelle.
‘And now I’m free and will never give up that happy fairytale ending of one day getting married and having my family unit I desire (sic).’
The divorce is Katie’s third: She was wed to Peter Andre, 47, from 2005 to 2009 and cage fighter Alex Reid from 2010 to 2012.
Katie shares two children – her son Jett, seven, and daughter Bunny, six – with former stripper Kieran.
She is also a mother to son Junior, 15, and daughter Princess, 13, with her ex-husband, singer and TV personality Peter. She is also the mother to 18-year-old Harvey with ex Dwight Yorke, 49.
Over the Christmas holiday, Katie revealed that she hoped to enter the New Year ‘with a baby on the way and a ring on my finger’ as she is not getting ‘any younger’.

The former Loose Women star admitted that she knows Carl is ‘the one’ and cannot wait for him to pop the big question.
Katie has been utterly inseparable from her new beau Carl Woods since they went public with their romance in July.
At the time, she told The Sun that Carl did not propose at Christmas as it is ‘too cliché’ but that her boyfriend does have big plans to propose in 2021.
Carl also bragged that when they finally do marry it will be like ‘nothing ever done before’ and plans to send her into floods of tears with his proposal.
Speaking about her festive celebrations this year, Katie admitted she has had her first sober Christmas and said it makes her ‘sick’ thinking back on her past decisions.
Katie recently opened up about her decision to seek professional help and become an inpatient at The Priory – which she described as ‘the best thing she’s ever done’.
She bravely admitted that she got to ‘breaking point’ where she felt she ‘couldn’t cope’, but thankfully had a wake-up call and put herself into rehab.
