The former glamour model - who has two kids, Junior, five, and three-year-old Princess Tiaamii, with her ex-husband and a son, Harvey, eight, with retired soccer player Dwight Yorke - thinks the children benefit from having divorced parents because of all the extra presents they will get at Christmas and birthdays.
She said: "I think it`s probably good I split with Pete when they were so young. I was about their age when my parents got divorced and I can`t even remember it, so hopefully they won-t either.
"They`re lucky really, all kids withdivorced parents are lucky because they get extra Christmas presents and trips out and two sets of birthday presents."
Katie - who is now married to cage-fighter Alex Reid - also hit back at claims she isn`t as popular since she split from Pete, 37, in May 2009.
In a TV interview, the 32-year-old star explained: "I think it`s absolute nonsense that I-m not as popular as I used to be. People are intrigued by me. My life is like a film and I get portrayed as the baddie all the time."
