After hours of speculation and a LOT of online rumours, Peter Andre has finally spoken out and confirmed that he became a father for the third time last night.
The reality TV star is already dad to Princess and Junior, who he co-parents with ex wife Katie Price, however last year he revealed that his new girlfriend Emily MacDonagh was expecting their first child.
The pair spoke recently in a magazine interview about their excitement and happiness over the news and Peter certainly sounded pretty chuffed this morning when he tweeted his fans about the family’s new addition.
Emily was admitted to Musgrove Park Hospital last night and late in the evening she gave birth to a healthy baby girl.
“Now that I have had the opportunity to tell Junior & Pringles , we are very happy to announce the safe arrival of our beautiful baby girl:)”
The Mysterious Girl singer added:
“We are extremely thrilled and mum and bubba are doing fine. We are looking forward to a nice quiet couple of weeks getting to know our baby. Thanks to everyone at Musgrove Park Hospital :)))”
Fans have been rushing to congratulate the star and messages of support on Twitter included:
“@MrPeterAndre Congratulations to you and Emily! x”
“@MrPeterAndre awww congrats to u both,sending love to u all,and enjoy ur bundle off joy,pls tell emily get some rest xxx”

“@MrPeterAndre Congrats to you all 🙂 and well done Emily :)”
The pair have not yet confirmed the baby’s name.
It was reported last year that Peter was hoping for another son, while Emily was wishing for a girl.
Andre told OK magazine:
“I did want a boy because I always dreamed of taking him fishing and things. I’m so close to Princess and Junior and they offer different things. Junior loves fishing and Princess likes making cakes and drawing. Princess has said, though, that if it’s not a girl, she’s not interested because she only has brothers and is desperate for a sister! But I’d be happy with either. We are so blessed.”
MacDonagh also confirmed that she plans to breastfeed the infant. The thought caused Peter to have a bit of a meltdown.
