Katie Price and Peter Andre have come together for the first time since their high-profile divorce, to take care of the former glamour model's poorly son Harvey.
The eight-year-old has been admitted to East Surrey hospital after coming down with suspected swine flu.
Katie is said to be "frantic" with worry that her son, with footballer Dwight Yorke, may develop complications from the illness because of his autism.
Ex-husband Pete cancelled plans to turn on Christmas lights in a London store to be at his step-son's bedside.
Harvey is expected to remain in hospital for at least 48 hours, with mum and Pete by his side while Katie's mother takes care of their other two children, Junior and Princess Tiaamii.
"Katie is preparing to take time off work until Harvey is well," her spokesperson says.
