The personal trainer, who is dad to Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven, also revealed that he is in close contact with his ex wife’s first husband, Mysterious Girl singer Peter who also shares two kids with Katie.
Kieran said the pair have spoken following Katie’s arrest.
In an interview with the Mail Online explained that his friendship with the singer didn’t “stop when Kate and me finished” and the pair are working together to do what’s best for their kids.
“Whenever there’s any issues or problems we’re there and it’s good for when Jett and Bunny want to speak to Princess and Junior. Why shouldn’t they get to speak to their brother and sister?” he mused.
Speaking on how he has got his own children through the drama, Kieran said: “For Jett and Bunny I have kept it very simple. I told them mummy has been in a car accident, mummy is absolutely fine, but mummy is unwell in the head and she’s not very well, she has gone into a hospital and they’re going to make her better. They don’t need to know anything else.”
He added that the youngsters have made Get Well Soon mummy cards at school
In addition to Jett and Bunny, Katie is also mum to Harvey Price, whose estranged father is former footballer Dwight Yorke and Junior and Princess Andre from her marriage to her I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! co-star Peter.
“I looked after the children when Kate was in The Priory before and I’m their dad, to look after them is not a chore,” the dad-of-three told MailOnline on Friday.
“I have taken parental responsibility to look after them while their mum is getting better.”
Elsewhere in the interview, the 34-year-old expressed concern for his ex and shared his fears that the one-time Page 3 icon could end up dead if something doesn’t change.
The star pleaded guilty to drink-driving at Crawley Magistrates’ Court after her rolled BMW was discovered in the road near her home in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Prior to the former model’s appearance in court, Katie’s family expressed concern for her mental health following her arrest.
Speaking via Katie’s Instagram account, ‘The Price Family’ shared that that they had been concerned for the star’s wellbeing for ‘some time’ and will continue to help ‘Kate get the help she needs.’
Both 16-year-old Junior and 14-year-old Princess commented on the update posted on Katie’s behalf and publicly backed their mother.
Junior wrote: “Love you mum,” followed by a red heart emoji.
Princess added: “Love you mum so much.”
Speaking in his interview, Kieran revealed that he is in touch with the teenagers father, Peter and the pair have developed a friendship over the years.
“I have spoken to Pete, we became close and there was no reason for our friendship to stop when Kate and me finished,” he explained.
“Whenever there’s any issues or problems we’re there and it’s good for when Jett and Bunny want to speak to Princess and Junior. Why shouldn’t they get to speak to their brother and sister?”
Katie and Kieran married in 2013, splitting five years later after welcoming two children into the world together.
The former couple’s divorce was finalised earlier this year.
