Peter Andre has spoken out about ex-wife Katie Price’s split from her third husband, Kieran Hayler.
The Mysterious Girl singer separated from Katie in 2009 after nearly four years of marriage. They share children Junior, 12, and ten-year-old Princess.
In the new issue of OK! magazine, Peter, 44, spoke about his good relationship with Kieran and how it’s important for the children to see “unity” between their parents.
Peter said: “[Kieran’s] always been great with the kids, which is what you want when you’re not looking after them 24/7.
“I appreciate everything he’s done and obviously it’s good that we get on well. He was always very respectful to me and would always run things past me with regards to the children, which I’m thankful for.”
Peter added his role is to support the children throughout Katie and Kieran’s separation, adding that he and wife Emily are “very conscious of giving them a stable home life at all times.”
Peter married doctor Emily in 2015 and they have children Amelia, four, and Theo, one.
Katie, meanwhile, has son Harvey, 16, from her relationship with Dwight Yorke, and kids Jett, four, and Bunny, three, with Kieran.
She hasn’t actually publicly confirmed a split from Kieran, although it’s been widely speculated after she was seen holding hands with personal trainer and one-time reality star Kris Boyson.
Katie and Kris were seen enjoying a holiday together in Bruges, Belgium for her 40th birthday.
She then hinted Kieran had moved out of the family home after posting a public Instagram thanking him for “dropping off” a birthday cake at her home.
Kieran hasn’t spoken out, either.
The couple married in January 2013 following a whirlwind romance but it wasn’t a smooth-sailing marriage.
Katie accused Kieran of cheating on her in 2014 with her best friend, Jane Pountney, and then last year, she claimed he’d been sleeping with their kids’ nanny.
It had appeared Katie was giving Kieran another chance, though, as he remained in the marital home after the second cheating allegation.
In an interview with OK! magazine in April, Katie ranted she was “sick to death of having to justify myself” amid ongoing speculation about the state of her marriage.
She added: “Me and Kieran know what’s going on and it is what it is. I think people just want me to get a lorry and chuck him out of the house. Yeah, it hasn’t been good, but what do you do? I’ve told him he needs to go and sort himself out and get help.
“I have knee-jerked before in relationships and there are the kids to think about.”
