The 36-year-old former glamour model gave birth on Monday, despite booking into a private hospital for a planned C-section on 15 August, according to reports.
PR consultancy firm Lunn Farrow Media said on Twitter: "LFM can confirm that our client (Katie Price) has given birth to a baby girl this afternoon - no more details will be given at present."
The new arrival is Price's fifth child, her second with husband Kieran Hayler.
Their marriage - which is Price's third - was rocked last month after revelations Hayler had been cheating on the model with her best friend.
Price told OK! magazine she is "working" on her relationship with Hayler, adding: "We're...taking it day by day. They are by no means sorted, but better."
She also hinted that they are living together again, saying: "He stayed at his nan's, which is about 45 minutes away, over a period of two weeks... But it was killing him and I needed his help with (son) Jett and to try to resolve things properly.
"I know people say I should leave him, but it's not that simple. I'd like there to be a happy ending - who knows?" she added.
The former Page 3 girl turned businesswoman previously announced plans to divorce her husband on Twitter but later in a radio interview in June, refused to rule out a reconciliation, saying that "time is a healer".
Price was previously married to singer Peter Andre and Celebrity Big Brother contestant and cage-fighter Alex Reid.
She and Kieran had their first child together, Jett, in August last year. She also has two children, Junior and Princess, from her four-year marriage to Andre and a son, Harvey, from her brief relationship with footballer Dwight Yorke.
