According to The Mirror, singer Peter Andre and his wife, Emily, have shared some exciting news with the world: they are expecting their third child together.

The Mysterious Girl singer, who is 50, announced this joyous development on Instagram, alongside a heartwarming photo of the couple holding up their ultrasound scans.

This expanding family has garnered an outpouring of well-wishes from friends, fans, and fellow celebrities, with congratulatory messages flooding in from stars like Jess Wright, Ashley Roberts of the Pussycat Dolls, and Catherine Tyldesley, formerly of Coronation Street.

The announcement of this new pregnancy follows Peter's musings from a few months ago when he hinted at the possibility of becoming a father for the fifth time. In a candid discussion on Vicky Pattison's podcast, The Secret To, he shared that despite thinking he was 'done' with having children, he and Emily were having conversations about expanding their family, surprising even himself.

Speaking on Vicky Pattison’s The Secret To podcast in July, he shared:

'Children… I was like, when I get to 50 I’m done and then I find myself having conversations with [Emily] going, ‘Yeah you know, if we did have another child, where would we put Junior? I can’t even believe we have those conversations and that makes me think that I just don’t know, it’s just one of those things. It’s just weird that we even have those conversations, so I don’t know.'

However, Peter humorously acknowledged that the final decision would rest with Emily, saying, 'Listen, us guys can wishful think all we like, right, but it’s going to be up to her.'

Inside Peter Andre's love journey

Peter Andre and Emily's growing family began in a rather unusual way back in 2010 when Peter had to undergo emergency surgery for kidney stones while in Taunton, Somerset. Dr. Ruaraidh MacDonagh, Emily's father, was the on-call consultant who conducted the surgery. Peter, feeling grateful, offered him tickets to one of his Plymouth shows. However, since Dr. MacDonagh couldn't attend, his wife Rebecca and their daughter, Emily, took his place.

This initial meeting led to a blossoming romance, and two years later, they found themselves exchanging wedding vows at a beautiful ceremony held at Mamhead House in Exeter. They welcomed their first child, Amelia, in 2014 and later added Theo to their family in November 2016.

In a recent column for OK!, Peter emphasized the importance of maintaining their relationship and ensuring they have quality time together as a couple. He wrote:

'Emily is a gentle soul and an unbelievable mum. As we were friends first, we had that good foundation for our relationship. She really is my best friend. I also think it’s important to have date nights and make time for us as a couple, away from being parents. I believe happy parents equals happy kids, and vice versa.'
