Proud mum Katie Price has shared a sweet message to mark her eldest son Harvey's 17th birthday.

Katie wrote: "Happy birthday to my Harvey.

"17 today where has the time gone?! I love being your mummy."

Harvey is the eldest of Katie's five children and she gave birth to him following a brief fling with footballer Dwight Yorke.

But soon after he was born, doctors discovered that Harvey had severely impaired sight and he was later diagnosed with septo-optic dysplasia.

Harvey also suffers from Prader–Willi syndrome, which causes weight gain among other symptoms, and he is on the autistic spectrum.

Recently, Katie has been campaigning the government endlessly to make online abuse a criminal offence.

This comes after Harvey has found himself repeatedly under attack from vile trolls on social media.

Earlier this year, Harvey himself shared an example of the abuse he has endured and personally asked his tormentors: "Why do this to me?"

Meanwhile, Katie's fans have been quick to send Harvey their birthday wishes on his special day.

One wrote: "Happy birthday handsome boy!"

Another added: "Harvey you beautiful boy. Happy happy happy birthday, hope you have a wonderful day."
