Peter Andre has disclosed that he's upholding a firm set of household and bedroom principles for his kids now as his son Junior has introduced a new older girlfriend to the family. The Mysterious Girl hitmaker and dad to five, who recently celebrated the arrival of his daughter Arabella Rose with wife Emily 11 weeks ago, is not relenting on these standards.

Peter, who was raised in a strict home environment himself, confessed that having girlfriends over at his parents' place was never permitted. In keeping with a similar ethos in his own household, albeit slightly less rigid, Peter shared these domestic guidelines just as his firstborn, Junior, aged 19, went public with his relationship on social media.

On his 19th birthday, Junior uploaded several intimate snaps with Jasmin Orr on Instagram, playfully writing: "It's my Birthday! ! Wouldn't want to spend it any other way." Want less ads? Download WalesOnline’s Premium app on Apple or Android.

Jasmin, aged 23 and already a familiar face with her considerable online presence and appearance on Celebs Go Dating, appeared quite comfortable in sharing their romance with the world. Junior's use of hashtags like "19," "birthday" and "loved up" signalled that he's officially off the market.

Meanwhile, Junior's younger sister Princess, 16, is also navigating the world of young love and has been open about her relationship on social media, as noted by the Daily Star. With both of his eldest children now dating, Peter Andre has set clear boundaries within his home, reports the Mirror.

He's fine with his kids having their partners over, but he's adamant that there will be no bedroom sharing while under his roof. In a candid conversation with OK! magazine, Peter reminisced about his own strict upbringing: "My mum and dad were very strict. We grew up very religious. I remember I had a girlfriend at 19 and I wasn't allowed to bring her home, not even for dinner."

He then outlined the rules he's implemented in his own household: "But then, I've got rules in my house now. The kids are allowed to have boyfriends and girlfriends over, but they've got to be 16 and they're not allowed to stay over. And if they do stay over, one is upstairs and one's downstairs."

The pop star shares his teenage offspring with former glamour model Katie Price, whom he famously met on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! in 2004. Their whirlwind romance quickly escalated after leaving the jungle, leading to marriage and a family life constantly in the spotlight, including on various reality shows.

However, after four and a half years, the celebrity couple parted ways but continued to co-parent their two children. While Katie has since entered a new relationship, Peter has found love again with his wife Emily, with whom he has three children. For the latest TV & Showbiz news, sign up to our newsletter.
