Katie Price is reportedly in a race against time to tie the knot with Carl Woods after her mother Amy gave her seal of approval.
The 42 year old former model, who recently called Carl “controlling” as she defended her romance against trolls, is reportedly set to divorce Kieran this week, two years after their split.
Katie and her Love Island boyfriend Carl, 31, have recently sparked rumours they have secretly tied the knot after they were spotted shopping for rings.
And Carl continued to fuel those rumours as Katie’s beau recently called her mother Amy, 68, her “mother-in-law” as he made a sweet tribute to her on her birthday.

It has now been reported that Katie and Carl are in fact planning to marry sooner rather than later so Amy, who was diagnosed with a terminal lung condition, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, in 2017, can witness her daughter walking down the aisle once more.
The source has said: “I think the reason Katie is in such a rush to marry Carl is the fact her mum is very ill.
“Amy likes Carl – she gave him the seal of approval at the weekend as she can see how happy he makes Katie and how much the kids like him. That's all she wants – to see Katie in a happy stable relationship.
“So part of the reason Katie is rushing forward in the relationship is the fact that her mum is so ill and Katie would love her to be at the wedding if she's well enough.”
Katie’s representative also told The Sun Online: “Amy has given her seal of approval and Carl does have all the hallmarks of good husband material
“With Amy’s condition being terminal, time is a reality factor – there is no way Amy would not to be present to see her daughter marry Carl.
“Amy’s birthday was a happy event, despite her illness she made the most of her day with the family around her.”
It comes after the loved-up couple discussed plans to tie the knot in their first exclusive joint interview with OK! magazine.

When the loved-up pair were asked if they have discussed plans to tie the knot, Katie said: “Of course we have! We’re excited about everything; babies and marriage. I’ve even discussed it with my mum and what it will be like. And I’ll change my name from Katie Price to Katie Woods – I’ve never done that before.”
To which Carl said: “I wouldn’t get married if you weren’t going to change your name.”
And Katie added: “People say I’ve been like this with exes but no, they were just dress rehearsals. What I have now with Carl is the real thing. They’re exes for a reason.”
Carl responded: “I don’t want to be Mr Price. I’m not interested.”
Katie then explained: “Changing names worked for Cheryl Cole and then Cheryl… whatever the other name she had was. I can be Katie Woods.”
