Kieran Hayler shoots a smile and thumbs up as he heads out with his family after arrest
Katie Price’s ex-husband, Kieran Hayler, has been photographed for the first time since his arrest on suspicion of ‘child neglect and possession of a firearm’.
The former stripper and personal trainer, 36, had a beaming smile and thumbs up as he stepped outside with his family on Easter Sunday.
He was joined by his fiancé Michelle Penticost, 40, their son Apollo, 20 months, and her son Valentino, 12, from a previous relationship.
Kieran, who wore a black top with a banana sketch, was in love with his youngest child when they moved out of their home in West Sussex.
The influencer, who shares son Jett, nine, and daughter Bunny, eight, with the former glamor model, 44, carried a few bags and got into his car.

Earlier in the day, Kieran broke his silence following the arrest and took to Instagram early Sunday morning with an informational poster about parental alienation.
It explained that it involves a form of “physical abuse” where one parent, through “coaching and persuasion,” eliminates a parent from their child’s life.
The message read: “In most cases, a previously healthy love relationship between the child and its parent and/or family is destroyed, resulting in severe emotional and psychological harm to the child.
Then the alleged abuser’s “primary strategies” were listed, including limiting contact and making “false accusations” against the targeted parent.
By morning, however, Kieran seemed to be more jovial as he shared a video of his kitchen table covered in Easter goodies.
Elsewhere, Katie shared a cryptic post that read: ‘A person’s true colors will always show in time.
You may be fooled at this point, but be patient and see what happens.
It comes after MailOnline revealed that Kieran is “assisting police with their investigation” after she was “arrested on suspicion of child neglect and possession of a firearm.”
The TV personality was taken into custody by Sussex Police for questioning. The mirror reported.

Kieran has not been charged with any crime, police told MailOnline.
A source close to him – who did not comment on the nature of the allegations – also confirmed that he is “assisting police in their investigation.”
The arrest is said to have taken place at his home in West Sussex. Neighbors told The sun that police swarmed the premises over allegations that he had used the weapon with “intent to instill fear of violence.”
Local residents claimed that Kieran was arrested around 4pm yesterday in a “very dramatic” scene.
“A police van and car suddenly pulled into their home’s driveway,” a neighbor recalled, adding that they later learned the “pretty terrifying” incident involved a gun.
In a statement to The Sun, Sussex Police said: ‘A man has been arrested on suspicion of possessing a firearm with intent to incite fear of violence.
He’s been taken in for questioning.
“We will not comment further.”
Hayler and Katie, 44, were married for eight years after getting married in 2013. The couple, who divorced in 2021, had tied the knot after just six weeks of dating.
They allegedly had a messy divorce that took about three years to finalize.
Representatives for Katie and Kieran were approached for comment at the time.
