Emily MacDonagh reveals secret behind happy marriage to husband Peter Andre

It's the simple things!

Emily MacDonagh has opened up about her marriage to husband Peter Andre and how they keep their romance blossoming.

The mum-of-two tied the knot with Pete, 45, in 2015 and the couple have two children together.

Writing in her latest OK! Magazine column, Emily said their relationship works because they “enjoy the same things” like cooking.

Speaking about her relationship with Pete, Emily said: “Me and Pete rarely get to spend time just the two of us, so if we can get some time off we try and be together.”

Emily, 28, said she thinks there are “lots of things” that make a marriage work, not just “one rule”.

She continued: “We enjoy a lot of the same things and have a lot in common.

“We’re always trying new recipes and, after a long day at work, I love coming home and being able to cook together.”

Earlier this month, the couple celebrated their third wedding anniversary and stayed true to traditions by exchanging leather goods on the big day.

Emily wrote in one of her previous OK! Magazine columns: “He bought me an amazing leather jacket from Zara

“I got him a leather picture frame and put a lovely family picture in it that we’ve been wanting to put up for ages – he loved it.”

She had previously admitted Peter, 45, found the picture frame early after she ordered it online and put his name on the address by mistake!

Emily and Peter married at Mamhead House outside Exeter on Saturday, July 11, 2015.

They had become engaged two years previously, after Peter popped the question in their daughter Amelia’s nursery just one week before the little girl was born.

As well as being parents to daughter Amelia, four, they also share son Theo, one. Peter is also dad to Junior, 13, and Princess, 11, from his marriage to first wife, Katie Price.

Earlier this year, Emily opened up about being a step-mum to Junior and Princess, saying she feels like their “big sister”.

She said in her column in May: “I think getting the balance right as a step-parent is crucial. For me, I tend to leave the disciplining up to Pete and often feel like a big sister, which works really well for us.”
