Peter Andre and his wife Emily have been flooded with message from fans after the latter paid a sweet tribute to her husband and the father of her children on social media.

She posted a snap of a topless Peter in bed with their young children - Amelia, Theo and baby Arabella, who was born earlier this year - but covered their faces with red love hearts as they continue to keep their young children out of the spotlight.

Alongside it, mum-of-three and doctor Emily wrote: "Happy Fathers Day to all Dads out there. To my lovely husband, we couldn’t ask for better love you so much @peterandre. And of course to my dad thank you for being wonderful xxx”.

Also responding to Emily's post, Peter said: "What a great photo ems. What more could I ask for. Thank you." Elsewhere, Peter’s daughter, Princess, also praised her dad on social media and in her stories posted an old selfie of them on holiday together.

Alongside the photo, Princess wrote: "Happy father’s day to the best dad ever I love you xx”. Peter, who reshared the post, then hilariously added: "I love you too. Why does my hair look like a bird?"

Meanwhile, Peter posted a sweet reel of his Father’s Day antics - which included having lunch with his family. Peter spent some of the day at the Galu restaurant in Banstead and panning the camera around, Peter snapped a clip of his young children, Amelia and Theo.

Emily cradled their new baby, Arabella, before the camera panned to teenagers Junior and Princess - Junior then turned the camera to himself and said: "So buzzed to have everyone here for Father’s Day lunch." Peter captioned the reel: "What a wonderful day Thank you family. @dr_emily_official @officialjunior_andre @officialprincess_andre We had a nice lunch at the lovely @galubanstead Did you have a nice day?"
