Yesterday, the lovable family man Tweeted Katie’s son Harvey to wish him all the best on his 15th birthday.

In the heartfelt message he wrote: “Happy birthday to a very special boy:))). Hope you like your prezzies.”

While his fans were touched by the gesture, some recalled that Katie had recently said that Peter “no longer sees” her son, whose real dad is football player Dwight Yorke.

Well, while he might not see Harvey as often as he’d like, that doesn’t mean he has stopped thinking about the wee fella.

On the contrary, from what we gather from the tweet, Harvey is still at the forefront of his mind and he even sent him some presents to mark his big day.

As we all know, Peter loves his brood of kids more than anything in the world, even if they are not related by blood, like Harvey.

During his relationship with Katie, he often spoke about how close he and Harvey were and how he looked at him as a son.

He even wrote a sentimental song called Unconditional that was all about his special relationship with Harvey.

Peter, who is biological father to two of Katie’s other children Princess and Junior, even told Hello magazine that “it was Harvey who taught me to be a father before I became a biological dad. He changed me.”

However, last year Katie suggested in a talk in Liverpool that she was the only person Harvey had to look out for him

“When you divorce you have to share the kids,” she said. “But with Harvey there is no one.

“Look, Dwight [doesn’t] want to know… someone else doesn’t see him anymore – he’s just got me.”

Pete, however, hit back and said that he does have contact with Harvey and said he sees him whenever he can.

“I don’t see him all the time, but I see him at events like the kids’ sports day.

“There have been a few times recently where he’s been to my house and I’ve been to his.

“Harvey will always be special to me and I just want him to be happy… he’s a great kid.”
