Pregnant British star Katie Price has axed a planned visit to Australia over fears the long flight could harm her unborn baby.
The glamour model-turned-reality Tv star is expecting her fourth child this summer (13) and was scheduled to fly Down Under to launch a new fashion project next week (begs15Jul13), but the visit has now been cancelled on the advice of her doctor.
In a statement, Price writes, "I have made no secret that this pregnancy has been the hardest. I have been ordered to take it easy as much as I can and I am completely devastated that I am unable to make the trip to Australia.
"On Friday 28th June I was rushed to see my specialist as I was having some serious problems breathing. I am unable to fly long haul until after our baby is born. I have tried absolutely everything to change this decision, however there are no circumstances in which it will be safe for me to fly."
In a series of posts on her Twitter.com page, she adds, "I'm devastated I'm not going to be able to make my Australia trip now due to health reasons. I promise I will come soon and its (sic) been a year of planning but I can't risk my babies (sic) health and my health is something I can't control. Long haul flights have been banned by my dr (doctor). Gutted."
Price is expecting her first child with third husband Kieran Hayler, while she has three other kids from previous relationships, including two from her marriage to pop star Peter Andre.
