The birth of their baby has brought the couple closer

Kieran Hayler reckons his and wife Katie Price‘s relationship is even stronger now that they’ve welcomed their baby son Jett Riviera.

Jett was born in a dramatic emergency C-section last week because Katie‘s amniotic sac split and, after being hospitalised, she reportedly developed a life-threatening infection.

‘Its been a tough 3 weeks but we are closer and more in love than ever before. I love my wife @MissKatiePrice xxx,’ Tweeted Kieran, 26, along with a photo of the couple kissing.

‘In sickness and in health!!! We can get through anything…. #strongerthanever #vows.’

A touched Katie, 35, replied: ‘@kieran0322 I love you more xxxx.’

But Kieran insisted: ‘@MissKatiePrice not a chance I love you more. Xxxxxx.’

Katie and Kieran – who wed in January – were abroad on holiday when Jett arrived two months early.

They’re currently staying in a nearby villa so they can visit Jett at his special care unit and Katie told fans yesterday that she’s starting to recover from her terrifying op.

‘Soo nice to actually lie out in the sun im going to enjoy every min left till sun goes! Hubby gone to feed Jett at Hospital xx #handsondad,’ Tweeted Katie.
