Peter André has confirmed that his wife Emily is pregnant with their second child together. The couple are already parents to Amelia who is 2. André posted a picture of the scan on to his Twitter account on Thursday, captioning the image with the words: “OMG Dad to be AGAIN :)) Brilliant. So so happy” . Peter also has two children with his ex-wife Katie Price, Junior, 10 and Princess, 8.
Peter hasn’t kept the fact that he wants to expand his family with his doctor wife a secret, saying he wants at least another two children, although he obviously needed her permission first. He appeared on Good Morning Britain in February to chat about his forthcoming tour when he was asked by Kate Garraway and Charlotte Hawkins if he is keen to have more kids. With a cheeky smile on his face, the Australian heartthrob admitted that it’s a possibility. He had this to say on the matter; “I am so excited because after Junior and Bista – that’s her nickname – I was like “OK, I’m done now”, then Amelia came along. She’s such a joy, I really think I’m going to have another two at least. I just gotta ask the wife!”
Emily’s pregnancy does not come as a surprise, as Peter also said; “I’d love to have another by the end of the year. Ems just has to say when and I’m ready to go! Princess and Junior have bonded so well with Amelia and it’s created this incredible family unit for Emily and I. I really wanted another boy but at the moment, Amelia is melting my heart. I keep saying to Emily, “One more baby”. The other day though, she said, “It won’t be just one more baby – I think we’ll have a few more kids.” The couple announced they were having their first child together after dating for about a year; they met through Emily’s father, who is a surgeon and who operated on Peter in 2010 to remove his kidney stones. In an interview before their daughter Amelia was born, Peter told of his excitement at becoming a father for the third time and the joy of Emily being able to breastfeed their daughter. He said: “I had a meltdown in Mothercare. I wasn’t prepared for the breast pump, I nearly passed out when I saw it. This is the first time I’ll experience breast-feeding, so I needed to ask lots about that too.”
The pair also spoke to OK! magazine about their plans to wed in the future, with Peter insisting that while he is planning to pop the question, he won’t give any details away about just how he will do it.
