PETER Andre has opened up about his fifth child being on the way.
The TV favorite and his wife Emily shared the news just last week.
Peter, 50, announced that his wife Emily, 34, is expecting their third child together.
He has now broken his silence since sharing the sensational baby news.
Peter, who already shares Theo, six, and daughter Amelia, nine, with Emily – and two other children, daughter Princess, 16, and son Junior, 18, with ex-wife Katie Price – gave his fans a family update.
Chat in a column with OK!Peter said of the news: “We are both so excited, as are all the children, and as a family we are extremely happy.”
“Thank you for all the nice messages so far. We’ll keep you up to date!”
He also thanked his eldest daughter Princess for attending the Pride of Britain awards ceremony on his behalf and gushed: “I thought it was a lovely thing for my daughter to go on our behalf.”
The father praised his daughter Amelia for winning a gymnastics medal and spoke of his gratitude for the time he spent with his parents in Australia – despite becoming ill during the trip.
He said it made him “super grateful” for the time they were able to spend together.
Last week, Peter and Emily wrote on social media to share the news of their bundle of joy: “We’re excited to share the news with you all.”
“A new addition to our family in 2024.
“The children are so excited. Us too.”
Princess also shared her excitement about the new addition to the family.
In the comments section, she shouted: “Congratulations” and added a heart emoji.
Peter said in 2022 that he and Emily wanted to try for another baby, but they still had doubts.
Emily, who is 16 years younger than Peter, works as a doctor in the emergency room.
They met through Emily’s father, also a doctor, when he was treating Peter for kidney stones
