Peter Andre 'nowhere near' choosing baby name

Peter Andre 'nowhere near' choosing baby name

Peter Andre and his wife Emily are "nowhere near" choosing a name for their baby son.

The couple - who also have two-year-old daughter Amelia together - welcomed the tot into the world on November 21 but they are struggling to find a moniker that suits the little boy.

He said: "We're nowhere near choosing a name yet though.

"We have so many we like, but every time we go to say it, it just doesn't stick.

"I love names like Oscar and Arthur, but Emily is not so keen."

The 'Mysterious Girl' hitmaker thinks his son already looks like him.

He said: "He's such a joy and is doing really well - as is his mum.

"He was three weeks early but he weighted 6lb 10oz, a bit more than Amelia did.

"It's hard to tell who he looks like, but he does look different to how Amelia did when she was born. I think he looks more like me."

The 42-year-old singer is thankful Amelia and his other children, Junior, 11, and nine-year-old Princess - who he has with ex-wife Katie Price - are already besotted with their little brother.

He wrote in his column for new! magazine: "J and P were the first people I told about the baby.

"I called them at school and the headmaster was kind enough to ring me back during their lunch break.

"They got to meet their new brother at the weekend and they love him already.

"Mills has been awesome too, and is loving being a big sister. She calls him Brother Baby - it's so cute.

"I was putting her to bed the other night and with the new baby here, she looks like a giant now."

While he adores the new addition to his family, Peter admitted he is struggling with having a newborn in the house, and is in awe of how well his wife copes.

Referring to a picture of himself leaving hospital the day Emily and their baby were discharged, he said: "I was so tired because I'd been sleeping on the floor of the maternity unit.

"I've got such bad baby brain though.

"I'm struggling, but I haven't had to breastfeed so I'm lucky. My respect for Ems just goes up and up."
