Katie Price is now officially divorced from ex-husband Kieran Hayler three years after their split, it was revealed last week.
And a source has told new! that the reality TV star, 43, is finally able to look forward to her future with fiancé Carl Woods as she plans their wedding.
“Katie is delighted her divorce from Kieran is now done and dusted. She feels like a weight has been lifted off her shoulders,” our source revealed.
“She has two children with Kieran, so he’s going to be in her life forever – the divorce is ultimately just a piece of paper. But she’s officially free from that marriage and she can now focus on her plans for her wedding to Carl.”

Katie – who shares Jett, seven, and Bunny, six, with Kieran, 34, and is also mum to Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, with first husband Peter Andre, plus 19-year-old son Harvey with her ex Dwight York – is wasting no time when it comes to walking down the aisle.
The former glamour model wants to get married later this year after Carl, 31, popped the question in April following a whirlwind 10 month romance. Our source went on, “Katie is moving forward.
“Her main focus now is on the wedding, babies and her future with Carl. She’s hoping for a winter wedding as Christmas is her favourite time of the year.”
The source added that after having surgery in Turkey last month – which included full body liposuction, eye and lip lifts, liposuction under her chin and fat injections in her bum – Katie is feeling more confident than ever for her big day.
“Katie wants to have the ultimate wedding body,” they said. “She’s still healing from her surgery. There’s a slight frustration because she can’t wait to see the results but she’s already feeling much better and she’s excited for what’s to come.”
Katie has previously opened up about tying the knot with Carl, teasing, “Put it this way, the wedding that I want, if you Googled it, no one has ever done it before.
“No wall-to-wall celeb faces. It’ll be about us, Carl and our family, coming together as one. I want the focus on Carl as much as me.”
Katie’s wedding to businessman Carl will be her fourth after her previous marriages to Pete, 48, Alex Reid, 46, and Kieran. She was also engaged to Kris Boyson, 32, in 2019. Katie had believed all legal proceedings in her divorce from Kieran were finalised back in March – but the decree absolute only came through on 12 July.
Kieran said last week, “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.”
He added, “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.”
