Peter Andre’s family “can’t believe” he wants a fifth child

He spoke out in his latest New! magazine column

Peter Andre has revealed his family “can’t believe” he’s changed his mind about having more children.

The 45-year-old is already dad to four kids between the ages of 13 and one and had previously suggested he wouldn’t be adding to his family any further.

However, the Mysterious Girl singer recently did a U-Turn, admitting he’s now quite keen on the idea of a fifth child.

It’s come as a shock to his family, though!

Writing in his New! magazine column, Peter explained how his family are in disbelief he wants another kid after he earlier revealed youngest child Theo had been “difficult” as a baby.

He wrote: “My family can’t believe it because they know how difficult Theo’s been, but the way I see it, the worst case scenario is the first two years will be tricky and then it’ll be fine.”

Peter continued: “At the start, it felt like he was never going to settle and sleep through the night, but now he’s such a good baby and sleeps the longest out of all the kids!

“If we do have another one, it will be the last though… maybe!”

Peter may have his work cut out getting wife Emily on board, though!

She revealed in her own OK! Magazine column this week the couple aren’t quite “on the same page” about having more kids, as she wants to focus on her career as a doctor for now.

Emily wrote: “Pete said in his recent interview with OK! that he wants one more child but I can’t say I’m on the same page at the moment.

“I think he’s forgotten about the sleepless nights with Theo at the start! Maybe when I’ve dedicated a few years to my career I will think about having some more, as I really want to get stuck into it next year.”

Peter and Emily share Theo and daughter Amelia, four.

Peter also has son Junior, 13, and daughter Princess, 11, from his marriage to first wife Katie Price.

He’s flip-flopped about having more children over the years, initially suggesting he was happy with four, before changing his mind last week and saying he was warming to the idea of number five.
