Katie dated ex Aston Villa footballer Dwight in the early 2000s and they had a child together: 13-year-old Harvey, who suffers from a range of disabilities including blindness.
On Thursday afternoon, the mum-of-five posted a lovely picture of herself and Harvey – and in the caption, she mentions how much her son looks like his father, Dwight:
‘Harvey so looks like Dwight Yorke here shame he doesn’t want to see him.’
Seeing as Dwight, 44, and Katie have not publicly mentioned one another for years, this sudden reference to him, and his reluctance to be in Harvey’s life, comes as quite a surprise – especially since this is a picture she has uploaded before!
Many of her fans took this as an opportunity to praise Katie’s devotion to her children.
One user writes: ‘He doesn’t need him from what i see he has everything he needs in you, you play the role of mum and dad well done you raise your kids well,’ while another comments ‘His loss Katie, he has you and you are amazing with him and your other kids so let him miss out’.
She then followed up with a picture of herself and baby Harvey at a football game, captioned: ‘First and last time he watched Dwight Yorke play football’.
It’s no secret that Katie and Dwight’s relationship has been tense for well over a decade. After initially denying that he was Harvey’s father, Dwight’s involvement in his son’s life has been minimal – but Katie has been nothing but loving to her first-born, as well as her additional children: Junior, Princess, Jett and Bunny.
In her 2013 autobiography, Love, Lipstick and Lies, Katie revealed that Dwight and Harvey only spoke for the first time on Harvey’s 10th birthday in 2012 after she made a call to his manager. After this chat, they all met up in a Manchester restaurant – and according to Katie’s book, it didn’t quite go to plan.
Katie writes: ‘It wasn’t a friendly meeting and I didn’t hear from Dwight afterwards. It’s such a shame. All I can say is that he is missing out on a very special little boy…Personally, I think he is scared of seeing Harvey…Dwight should try. He would get so much love in return.’
