‘I am not her husband anymore’: After three years, Katie Price and Kieran Hayler are finally divorced, and it cost them less than £500
Kieran said: ‘As of July 12 we are now divorced. It took just over three years. We didn’t rush it; it was in the process for a long time and Covid-19 hit, which held up the courts. It wasn’t in our hands.
‘We did it really amicably, it was all done behind the scenes and neither of us had to go to court. I never wanted any money from her or anything like that, I made a conscious decision in my head it was a clean break and the chance to start my life over again. So, for me it was very easy.
‘We did it all online. We used an online divorce company, so I found them, I paid for it, got it all setup and all Kate had to do was sign the paperwork, and send it back. If I was to ever recommend any couple that is amicable, get a divorce online because it saves you thousands!
‘I’m not even joking, it didn’t cost any more than £500, because there was no legal battle. We share custody of the children and we arranged that ourselves, and we do stick to it. I said to her, I will be the only person that doesn’t take any money from you because that’s not who I am, I don’t want her money.’
A representative for Katie told MailOnline: ‘Katie is celebrating by spending a beautiful country break away with Carl, the children and her parents.’

In April, Kieran, who shares children Jett, seven, and Bunny, six, with Katie, confirmed the pair were still married, despite the former Loose Women panellist alleging she was ‘free’ last March after signing divorce papers.
Now, three months later, Kieran can finally celebrate being officially separated from his ex-wife, who he married after just six-weeks of dating.
He said: ‘It is great to get the divorce finalised and to move forward. I am not her husband anymore. We have two beautiful children out of our marriage and that is the best thing for both of us, they’re happy and healthy so what more could you want?
‘It has always been in the back of my mind, when is the next paperwork coming in? It was taking so long because of the courts being shut, but the company I used were so good and would constantly update me. It is a weight lifted and clears my head.
‘All I wanted is my children 50/50 and the rest of it I don’t really care. Kate was on the same page. And now we can move on. Just like that, the marriage has ended. It actually says at the bottom of the paperwork, you can now remarry!’

Katie, who’s also a mum to son Harvey, 19, from her relationship with former footballer Dwight Yorke, 49, got engaged to Carl Woods, 32, in April, following a 10-month romance.

Pete, 48, and Katie, who share children Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, together, split after three years of marriage.
Katie wed cage fighter Alex Reid, 45, in Las Vegas shortly after her divorce from Pete, before moving on with model Leandro Penna.
She was also engaged to personal trainer Kris Boyson, 32, but the pair split in December 2019.
Kieran, who’s engaged to girlfriend Michelle Penticost, with the couple expecting their first baby together in a matter of weeks, predicts it won’t be long until Katie and Carl are walking down the aisle.
He said: ‘For me, she can go and do whatever she wants, as long as it doesn’t impact the children because they’re the most important things for me.
‘I don’t need to talk about her or give a reaction about anything she does anymore. If she’s happy, I’m happy because than the kids are happy. She can get married whenever she likes. Carl seems like a nice guy; we still haven’t met but he seems nice.’
