Peter Andre's fatherhood excitement

Peter Andre's fatherhood excitement

Peter Andre is "buzzing" about becoming a father again.

The 'Mysterious Girl' singer has wanted to have another child with his wife Emily MacDonagh, with whom he already has two-year-old daughter Amelia, for a long time but he has admitted the news that the brunette beauty is pregnant with their second baby still left him gobsmacked.

He wrote in his column for new! magazine: "As you guys know, I've been desperate for another baby for a while and I finally managed to convince Emily the time was right.

"We went for the scan last Thursday morning and I was overwhelmed with happiness to see our second little one on the screen. I'm gonna be a dad again! I'm absolutely buzzing. In fact, we all are."

And Peter isn't the only one thrilled about the impending arrival as his other children Junior, 10, and Princess, eight - whom he has with his first wife Katie Price - can't wait to meet their half-sibling.

He added: "We told the kids this week and they were so excited. They can't wait for the baby to arrive. We are all so very happy with the news - thanks to everyone for their kind words."

However, although Peter's son is desperate to meet the baby in six months' time, he's hoping it's not a little boy as he wants to be the only one in the house.

Peter said recently: "Junior says we have to make sure it's a girl because he wants to be the only boy in the house. So now I've got terms and conditions as well."

But Junior will have to wait to find out if his "terms and conditions" have been met, as Emily has revealed the pair aren't planning on finding out the gender until the baby is born.

The 43-year-old singer sent his fans into a wild frenzy last week when he announced his happy news by uploading a photograph of 26-year-old Emily's scan on his Twitter account.
