Peter Andre pokes fun at 16-year age gap with wife Emily after Yogi Bear confusion

Singer was shocked at his young wife's admission

We all know it’s never been a big deal for Peter Andre and his wife Emily, but today the 44-year-old had a laugh about the age gap with his 28-year-old other half.

The couple appeared on Lorraine this morning in a cooking segment where they were showing how to make healthy pancakes.

As they were adding in all the ingredients to the blender for the tasty looking snacks, Emily poured in the honey.

But it was what happened next that surprised the singer.

Peter said: “It kind of looks Yogi Bear doesn’t it?”

Emily replied: “Yogi Bear? I don’t even know what Yogi Bear is!”

Gasping with shock that his wife didn’t know the cartoon character, he laughed saying: “Oh my gosh, that is the only time I notice the age difference.

“That and the fact I look older than you! That’s about it.”

The couple, who have two children together, laughed at the comment, but it’s not the first time that Emily has shocked Peter.

In 2015, he opened up to Woman’s Own magazine and revealed that Emily didn’t have a clue who Al Pacino was.

He said: “The other day I was talking about a film and Emily said, ‘Who’s that actor?’ It was Al Pacino… that killed me.”

But whilst the couple don’t care what people think, Emily has admitted that hearing cruel comments about their love for each other, can be upsetting.

Speaking to OK she said: “The downside [to life in the public eye] is people being nasty. In the past I’ve read people criticising me and Pete, whether it’s the age difference or our appearance.

“And I find it hard when people say I’m too young to be with him – my skin is not thick enough and I find it very upsetting.”

But we think Peter is more upset that he’s going to get old before his younger wife will!

He told New magazine: “We tell each other that we see ourselves growing old together, which is really nice. Now, before you all tell me to pass the sick bucket, what I’m gutted about is I’ll be old before her, so I guess she’ll just grow with me!”

Age ain’t nothing but a number Peter, so enjoy all the love you have for each other instead!
