A spokesperson for Katie told The Sun: ‘His condition is very dangerous and Katie is terrified.
‘He has a temperature of 42 degrees and is struggling to breathe. One of his conditions is adrenal failure that could cause his organs to fail and is very dangerous.’
The former glamour model, 42, is said to have called an ambulance for her eldest child when she noticed he was feeling unwell before he was sent to a specialist paediatric hospital.
According to the NHS, a high temperature is usually considered to be 38 degrees or above.
Addison’s disease, also known as primary adrenal insufficiency or hypoadrenalism, is a rare disorder of the adrenal gland in which it does not produce enough cortisol or aldosterone.
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Katie for further comment.
