Peter Andre’s wife, Emily, has spoken about her life as a step mom to Peter and Kate Price’s children, Junior and Princess, as well as life as a mother to her own children Theo and Amelia.

Emily has been married to Peter for six years now and they both have Theo and Amelia together.

According to Emily, meeting them (Peter’s children)and having them under her tutelage from back then when she was still a medical student was fun.

“I think with both of them, there’s always things you feel awkward to speak to your parents about. It could be anything. We have a slightly different relationship, maybe that’s why they will ask me questions about certain things.

“Also, with the job I do, I’ve always said to them that nothing is embarrassing to me. I think that’s always meant that they haven’t felt embarrassed to say stuff to me if they have to.

“They’re both really communicative teenagers.”

Princess and Junior seem very pleased having Emily around as their stepmom.

“We never have family arguments. I’ve never had an argument with Junior and Princess. Pete and I rarely argue,” Emily added.

“I don’t think Junior’s ever been in a mood with me and I’ve been his stepmum for nearly 10 years!”

Peter have ruled out another child together at the moment as “there aren’t enough hours in the day” to balance the four they currently have.

Speaking on her husband’s refusal to have more kids, while they manage to bring up the four they’ve got, Emily said ”I love babies, don’t get me wrong. But I was watching Millie talking yesterday with Theo and I thought ‘If I have a baby, it will be so hard to do this.’

“And I think actually the other kids would end up missing out a bit.

“So, for me, it’s just lovely how it is now. I love giving them all my focus and attention. I just don’t think the dynamic is right for a baby at the moment.” she concluded.

Andre began dating glamour model Katie Price after they met on reality series I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! in early 2004. The couple got engaged secretly that May, but it was not announced publicly until months later.

They married on 10 September 2005 in Highclere Castle, Hampshire.

In May 2009, it was announced that Andre and Price had separated after three-and-a-half years of marriage. September that year, they were officially divorced.

In July 2012, Andre began a relationship with Emily, who gave birth to Andre’s third child, a daughter, Amelia on 8 January 2014.

The couple got married on 11 July 2015, and on 22 November 2016, they had their son, Theodore James.
