Peter Andre: “I love being the strict dad”

The dad-of-3 explains how he's trying to set boundaries as well as have fun with his kids


You might think Peter Andre’s children have it pretty easy. But the Mysterious Girl singer insists that despite their celebrity upbringing, he’s working hard to make sure they don’t grow into brats.


“I enjoy being able to instill in my kids what my parents instilled in me. I love being the strict dad and also the fun dad,” he told the Express.

The 41-year-old lives in Sussex with his fiancée, Emily MacDonagh, 24, and their 5-month-old daughter, Amelia. He also has 2 children from his marriage to Katie Price, Junior, 9 and Princess, 6.

“I think it’s really important that kids can feel that they’re your mates, but still within boundaries,” he said. “My parents had boundaries, there was no hanging out going to the movies eating chocolate and popcorn, it was a very strict upbringing.

“I want to be able do that with my kids but at the same time I’ve always said I don’t mind a child being spoilt but I don’t want them to be a brat.”
