Katie Price 's boyfriend Carl Woods has revealed he used to be a total fanboy who had her posters on his wall.
The 31-year-old former Love Island star is planning to marry Katie, 42, and have children with her, and it seems it's a teenage dream come true.
Carl has admitted that his bedroom walls were covered in pictures of his now-girlfriend when he was a teen.
He told Closer magazine that he'd long admired the mum-of-five from afar before they got together.
He said: "I’ve known her since I was 15 – she just didn’t know it then. I had about six posters of her on my wall! But it’s funny because the reality is even better than the fantasy; Katie is a lot more 'me' than the old Jordan would have been."

Speaking about the change in her personality as she ditched her partying ways, he added: "Now she isn’t drinking and being wild. She has settled down and we enjoy a quiet family life. In truth, if I’d met Katie a few years ago when she was going through that stage, we wouldn’t have worked out.
"If she was still her 'Jordan' alter ego we would have clashed, because I hate partying. I can’t stand the 'Jordan' thing. I think Katie probably struggled to let go of the 'Jordan' alter ego for a while…"
He also said that while people refer to him as Katie's "toyboy" he's actually got an "old head", saying they balance each other out because she's got a "young head".

Katie and Carl regularly gush about their love and once told the Mirror they were "obsessed" with each other.
She said: "We're both so jealous of each other, and jealous into each other that it works because we're both so obsessed with each other."
And Carl added: "I think if you care, and you genuinely like that person, everybody's jealous, if you're not jealous you don't give a s**t, that's my opinion.

Carl says the relationship wouldn't have worked if he'd met Katie a couple of years ago
"I hate the fact that anyone's had Katie before me and she hates that anyone's had me before her but it's life, it's just how it is, life is just not that way is it?"
The couple even have each other's faces tattooed on their arms, and Katie has vowed to take Carl's last name when they get married, something she's never done with her previous husbands.
