The 40-year-old, who has had a tough few months after checking into rehab and nearly going bankrupt, has worked out an arrangement with the help of her new man Kris Boyson – and is even extending her good cheer to Kieran’s new girlfriend Michelle.
An insider told us: “Katie’s feeling the Christmas spirit and has been talked into inviting Kieran and Michelle around on Christmas Day.
“This new change of heart has been brought about by Kris, who wants them to get on. He’s desperate to play happy families with Kieran and has hated all the drama so far.
“He thinks people should get on for the kids’ sake.”
The Sun Online previously revealed that Kieran had agreed that Jett, five, and four-year-old Bunny could spend the day with her, and Peter confirmed Junior, 13, and 11-year-old Princess would be with their mum.
But now Kate – who also has son Harvey, 16, with former boyfriend Dwight Yorke – has ironed out the finer details.
The insider continued: “So now on Christmas Day, it’ll be Harvey and Katie in the morning, then Kieran will bring Bunny and Jett at lunch.
“He asked if he could see Harvey and buy him a gift, Katie said yes, but asked him to bring Michelle so that they can have a drink and make up. She sees 2019 as a fresh start.”
Since their split in 2009, Pete and Katie have taken turns in celebrating the big day with Princess and Junior – and last year, it was Pete's turn.
But this year, with Katie just avoiding bankruptcy and following her rehab treatment, it was unclear where the kids would be spending the festive season.
However over the weekend Peter told fans that his eldest would be spending the day with Katie.
He tweeted: “Of Course the children (j and p) will be with their mum for Christmas. This was always the case. And so they should. She is their mum. Have a good day :))).”
The youngsters are currently living with Pete, his wife, Emily MacDonagh, and their two children Amelia, four, and Theo, two, while Katie gets her life back on track.
Kieran has also taken on the main parenting duties of Bunny and Jett during the difficult period.
