Katie Price hides her stomach on day out with Carl Woods after sparking pregnancy rumours by cradling her tummy

KATIE Price kept her tummy covered as she stepped out with boyfriend Carl Woods today – after sparking rumours she is pregnant.

Carl protectively held Katie's hand on their outing with the former glamour model wearing an oversized baby blue cardigan with a pink puffer vest.

Katie completed the look with a blue top and matching leggings.

The choice of colours for her outfit during her light-hearted outing with Carl will surely fuel speculation she's expecting her sixth child, given they're the traditional colours assigned to babies.

The couple who have been together for almost a year laughed and smiled together as they held hands.

The 42-year-old sparked a frenzy when shared a picture of herself holding a 'bump', telling fans she was 'happy and healthy'.

She captioned the post: "Happy and healthy ❤️❤️❤️❤️ it’s the best feeling ever I thank @carljwoods for being part of me x"

Katie is mum to Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, who she shares with Peter Andre, as well as Jett, 7, and Bunny, 6, with ex husband Kieran Hayler and Harvey, 18, with Dwight Yorke.

Carl, who she has been dating since last year, reacted to the post, writing: "My Dolly"

Her followers were convinced the post meant she was expecting a child and rushed to congratulate her.

Geordie Shore star Chloe Ferry, wrote: “Congrats baby”

Another person added: “Congratulations beautiful ❤️ Xxx”

While someone else wrote: “Congrats.. I think your a great mammy :).”

Katie has made no secret about wanting to start a family with the Essex car dealer, 32.

She previously teased she might already be pregnant after saying she would" know on the 29th" of December if she had conceived.

Katie posted a picture of a bottle of folic acid to her Instagram stories, saying it's "that time".

Folic acid is known to help prevent birth defects and the NHS recommends people who can get pregnant should take a "folic acid tablet every day before you're pregnant and until you're 12 weeks pregnant".

Katie had slated 2021 for the year for that to happen and earlier this month Carl was seen with a pregnancy test.

She told The Sun in an exclusive chat that the couple had been trying to conceive already, and would know if they had been successful as her period was due at the end of December.

“It would be amazing to enter the New Year with a baby on the way and a ring on my finger. We’ve been trying — I’ll find out if I’m pregnant on the 29th because that’s when my period is due.”

Katie told The Sun yesterday how she wants four more kids with Carl – but has to reconsider due to having four Caesarean sections in the past.

Each repeat C-section is generally considered to be more complicated than the last.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Katie explained: "If I could, I’d definitely like another four kids. I might be able to, but my age isn’t helping.

"Realistically, I’m hoping to have another two. The next will be very special."

The star previously admitted that her experiences with her two youngest were much more unsettling, saying of Jett's birth: "This doctor only gave me the epidural [not the anaesthetic]. I could tell the doctor was close to making the first incision but I wasn’t numb yet.

"But the first incision was made and I could feel the pressure of it. Bringing life into the world is supposed to be magical. But what I went through was a nightmare."
