Peter Andre and Wife Emily

Peter Andre says he and wife Emily MacDonagh having more kids would be ‘crazy idea’

He called home schooling "the new garlic"

Peter Andre and his wife Emily don’t think they’ll be having any more children after the “madness” of lockdown.

The Mysterious Girl singer and his wife already have two kids, Amelia, seven, and Theo, four. And before the coronavirus lockdown, they were thinking of potentially having more.

Pete also has two teenage children, Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, with his ex Katie Price.

Speaking further, Pete said that although Emily – who is a doctor – was hard at work back then, for him it still felt like a “a summer holiday at home”.

However Peter explained that now, they think it would be a “crazy idea” to have more.

The last thing you’d want to think about is having more children.

He continued: “By the third lockdown we were like, ‘Right, OK, maybe this is a really crazy idea’.”

During an appearance on Lorraine in 2018, Emily said that she hadn’t completely ruled out adding to her family.

Lorraine joked that Peter would like to have a whole football team’s worth of kids.

Emily laughed, agreeing: “He would! But he changes his mind! I remember him saying, ‘No, no, no, no more children’ and I think now Theo is sleeping a little bit more, he’s saying, ‘Oh, maybe we will…'”

However, she added that she was “very much focused” on her career and “getting back to that”.
