Katie Price is set to follow in the footsteps of Queen of Pop Madonna by adopting an orphan to get over her breakup with husband Peter Andre, it has emerged.

Madonna had adopted a little girl from Malawi soon after her divorce from Guy Ritchie.

However, Price had revealed in recent past that she had lost Andre’s baby earlier this year.

She ostensibly told a friend that she hated being pregnant and instead preferred to adopt, the News of the World reports.

She reportedly said: “I want more children but there’’s no way I”m rushing into the physical upheaval of getting pregnant again after losing Pete’’s baby.

“The pain of that was too much to bear.

“I”ve been blessed with success and financial security and I feel it’’s time to share that.”

Her friend added: “Katie’’s lost interest in appearing like the perfect mother, and doesn”t care if people want to keep on judging her.

“She really wants to cut loose like the old days.”
