Now's columnist Katie Price on why she chose the 'old fashioned' name Bunny - and isn't bothered what anyone else thinks


Katie Price has been heavily criticised for calling her new baby daughter Bunny with Katie Hopkins even making a cruel joke that her name was chosen because husband Kieran Hayler was so promiscuous when she was pregnant.

But in her Now column this week, Katie comes back fighting saying: ‘I really don’t care.’

She writes: ‘Soft, cute, cuddly, unique but most of all fun. Some might say these
words describe me but my new baby girl is all of these and reminds me of
a Bunny!

‘Some may ridicule our choice and some will love it – I really don’t care to be honest… Bunny is an old-fashioned name and I love it.’

Katie, 36, also addresses her ex husband Peter Andre‘s recent revelation that their daughter Princess Tiaamii, seven, hates her name.

He told a radio DJ last week: ‘Princess is telling me she doesn’t want me to call her Princess and she doesn’t like the colour pink anymore, all of a sudden she wants everything blue.’

Peter, who designed the name Tiaamii himself by combining his mother’s name, Thea, together with Katie’s mother’s name, Amy, told OK! Magazine in 2007: ‘Katie always loved the name Princess, but everyone thought it was a bit over the top.’

In today’s column, Katie says: ‘Kieran and I chose Bunny and Jett‘s names together, just like Pete and I chose Junior and Princess‘s names together, while Harvey is named after my grandad.’

Our columnist also talks about her friendKerry Katona‘s recent wedding.

Katie was due to be a bridesmaid but pulled out the week before because it would have been too much for her to handle with a newborn.

She explains: ‘I had an amazing time at my pal Kerry’s wedding to George Kay. It’s true she asked me to be her bridesmaid – but it was impossible as I’ve only just had Bunny.

‘Kieran and I took Jett and Bunny and we had a great time. I wish Kerry and George a very happy life together.’

It is Katie’s last column for Now magazine.

She says: ‘I’m sad to say that this is my
last week as a Now columnist for a while. I’ve enjoyed the past six
months, providing my own take on all sorts of subjects and sharing
aspects of my life. 

‘But with so much going on at home and lots of work commitments coming up, I’m taking a break.

want to say a special thanks to you, the Now readers, who’ve been so
supportive over what’s been a challenging time in my personal life. The
kind emails and the gifts have been thoughtful. I’ll be back – watch
this space!’
