Bankrupt Katie Price starts IVF after fiance Carl Wood revealed fears he couldn’t have children after using steroids

Katie Price is set to spend thousands on IVF to have a baby with fiance Carl Woods.

The bankrupt star, 43, has made no secret of her desire to start a family with Carl, 33 – and is about to start gruelling rounds of treatment to make it happen.

A source told The Sun: “Katie is desperate to have a baby with Carl and will spend whatever it takes.

"She knows it won't be easy and that treatment can have a lot of side effects but it will be worth it if she and Carl get what they want."

Mum-of-five Katie was previously snapped visiting a fertility clinic in London with former Love Island star Carl.

Despite Katie's ongoing financial woes our insider confirmed that she will be self-funding her IVF treatment.

In January The Sun revealed that Katie had paid back just over £3k of her staggering debts, leaving her with more than £3m still owing to creditors.

Last year Carl told how years of steroid use have left him terrified he won't be able to have children.

The controversial drugs - banned in most sports - are used to build muscle mass but can reduce sperm count.

Speaking on Steph's Packed Lunch, he explained: "I’ve got a history of using steroids when I was younger.

"It’s always been in the back of my mind what potential damage I may or may not have done when I was taking them.”

The cost of private IVF treatment can vary but one cycle could be as much as £5k, while there can also be additional costs for medicines and consultations.

Carl recently told The Sun he'd "love to have babies" with Katie and insisted he's "completely loyal" to her following their brief split earlier this year.

We also revealed that Katie is planning to install a nursery at her Mucky Mansion when series two of her Channel 4 reality show returns.
