Peter Andre has discussed the moment he discovered that he was expecting his fourth child, and revealed that he’s already planning more babies with Emily MacDonagh in the future.
Back in May, the couple announced that they were expecting their second child together by sharing a sweet photo of Emily’s ultrasound scan to their followers.
Many fans were surprised (and delighted) by the news, but it turns out that Peter was equally surprised as he wasn’t aware that his wife was pregnant the second time around.
The ‘Mysterious Girl’ singer, who also has children Junior and Princess from his marriage to Katie Price, has spoken to OK! magazine about the joy that he felt on first hearing the news of their family expansion.
He explained: “I came home and she said: ‘Me and Amelia have got you a little something.’ She [Emily] handed me a present.
“As I unwrapped it, I saw it was a pregnancy test… I looked at her, then looked at the box, then back at her and it suddenly registered that the test read positive.”
The 43-year-old admitted that the couple had been trying for a baby but they “didn’t think it was going to happen as quickly”, so they waited a few weeks before telling Princess and Junior.
The children were clearly delighted when they were let in on their secret though, as Peter revealed that they were “running around in circles” with excitement – but will they have another little brother or sister?
Unfortunately we will have to wait a little while longer to find out, as the couple has planned to wait until the birth of the baby before finding out the gender.
“For the first time ever we’re not going to find out and I’m really excited because I’ll be the first to know,” he told the publication.
Peter still has plans on expanding his brood too, as he joked that he would like to “try” for 10 more, but then realistically added: “After this baby, I think one more, possibly two.
“With the new baby we’ll already be a family of six, it’s crazy. I don’t want to be 50 and changing nappies.”
