Peter Andre is getting anxious about his children flying the nest – with the star addressing speculation that his eldest son, Junior, will soon leave home.
With his teenage children growing up fast, Peter said he is in no disbelief that his children will one day fly the coop – with Junior being the first that he expects to leave home.
However, the dad-of-four says he wants to make to make home life so appealing that his children will never want to leave the house.
Peter addressed his children growing up in his latest YouTube update, with the star explaining: “I got a question asking ‘Is Junior planning on moving out?’
“I’ve gotta be honest guys, I hope not.”
He continued: “That kid, man. I know he’s my son and he’s 16… but he is the coolest, kindest kid and he’s got a heart of gold.”
Pete – who has two other children with his current wife, Emily MacDonagh, shared some touching details of his family life.
He said: “He will say ‘Come on dad, let’s watch a movie tonight.’ He won’t want me to say this, but he still comes and he gives his old man a hug, which is great. A lot. He’s really cool like that. And we love hanging out and it’s great.
“But he’s at an age that once he goes to college and stuff I know he’s gonna want to do more and more of his own thing and I’m prepared for that.”
Peter continued: “But I wouldn’t want him to move out.”
And he added: “I’m going to make the house like the Bermuda Triangle – you can get in, but you can’t get out.”
Pete’s latest updated attracted a flurry of comments from fans who seemed eager to assure him that his son would never be too far from home, even once he moves out.
One commented: “Junior will never be far away, you guys have an amazing relationship.”
Another added: “I’ve always been a fan of you and your family Peter, you have raised your kids well. They are grounded, polite and just amazing.”
As well as Junior and Princess, Peter also has younger children Amelia, seven, and Theo, four, with his wife Emily.
He has even speculated he will welcome more children with Emily as he hopes to be a father again before he turns 50.
He told OK! magazine back in 2019: “After Theo we said we were absolutely done but recently we’ve been talking about another baby.
“It’ll have to be soon though. I don’t want to be changing nappies when I’m 50!”
