Katie PriceModel / Socialite
Born: 22 May 1978 (?)
Birthplace: Brighton, Sussex, England
Best known as: The U.K. tabloid model known as "Jordan"
Name at birth: Katrina Infield
Katie Price, also known as Jordan, parlayed frequent nude and semi-nude appearances in the British tabloid The Sun into a full-time career as a celebrity whose fame rested on, as the Daily Mail once put it, "a décolletage that defied both the laws of biology and physics." The one-time Baywatch aspirant got her start under the name Jordan as a model for "Page 3," a girl-next-door photo feature of The Sun. Over the years she became a reader favorite, known for several breast-enhancing surgeries, her outrageous public behavior and her failed love affairs with pop singers and soccer stars. In 2002 she appeared in Hugh Hefner's Playboy magazine. Price's reputation as an over-exposed celebrity led to a trio of documentaries by filmmaker Richard Macer: Jordan: The Truth About Me (2002), Jordan: The Model Mum (2004) and Jordan: You Don't Even Know Me (2004). She met the Australian-English pop singer Peter Andre when both appeared on the "reality" show I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! in 2004. They were married in 2005, and their relationship was further documented in the U.K. TV program Katie and Peter. The pair moved to Los Angeles in 2007 when their television series was picked up by E! and renamed Katie and Peter: Stateside. They separated in 2009.
Extra credit: Price and Andre have two children together: Junior (b. 2006) and Princess Tiamii (b. 2007). Price also has a son, Harvey, born in 2002 from her relationship with soccer player Dwight Yorke.
