Alex Reid has defended wife Katie Price over comments she made suggesting that divorce is good for kids.

Last month, the glamour model, 32, aka Jordan, claimed that children who come from a broken home are lucky because they get more presents and holidays.

‘I feel I need to stand up for Katie on the recent stories trying to make out that she said divorce is good,’ says Alex, 35.

‘Of course she wasn’t advocating divorce. All she was saying was you have to make the best of what happens.

‘There is no point staying in a relationship just because you have kids.’

Peter Andre has responded to ex-wife Katie’s remarks, saying he doesn’t see how their children, Princess, 3, and Junior, 5 – have benefited from their divorce in October 2009.
