Peter Andre has revealed his eldest son Junior is already planning to attend university in America.

The Mysterious Girl singer said that Junior may only be 12 years old right now, but he’s already looking to the future and studying in the US.

And that’s fine by Pete!

Writing in his New magazine column, the star, 45, said he loves the States but couldn’t live there right now because of family commitments.

But he added: “Junior’s going to be 17 in four years time – can you believe that? – and has told me he really wants to go to university in America. So I said to him, ‘If you do, I’ll come over and spend time with you.’

“Not that I need an excuse, ha ha! I do love my England, though.”

Peter has recently spent time in Los Angeles filming his debut movie role in a short film called The Inheritance and recording songs for his album.

However, he ruled out a permanent move to the US because doctor wife Emily, 28, isn’t keen.

He described Emily as a “homebody”, saying: “Emily isn’t into the whole American thing… whereas I love the outdoors and the sunshine.”

Peter is also dad to daughter Princess, ten, with ex-wife Katie Price, and kids Amelia, four, and Theo, one, with Emily.

It seems like Junior and Princess could be following in their famous parents’ footsteps.

They’ve both appeared in their parents’ reality shows and magazine covers over the years, while Junior also recently signed a contract with Intense Menswear to launch his very own clothing range.

Katie said on Loose Women last year: “Being in the industry, my kids get offered things, but I do think they should get their education first.

“Princess has been offered a book deal but even if she did it, she would only promote it in the summer holidays.

“Junior has been offered a clothing deal and I’ll say to him, ‘Do you want to do it or do you not want to do it?’

“Junior wants to be a vlogger, or whatever they are, and have a YouTube channel. He wants to be a star like that.

“I have to rein him in and say, ‘Junior, you can’t just go on this because of who you are. Your friends may have it but you can’t because you’re different’ and people will try to pinpoint him, different to other kids.”

They’ve already done jobs already, little bits and bobs,” she said.

“I’m not pushing them. We are so normal at home. They don’t go to a dance school where you get pushed into it. We are so relaxed and normal, but naturally they get asked to do stuff.

“But because I’m in the industry, I don’t like the industry, because I know what it can be like.”
