Peter Andre has revealed that he and Emily MacDonagh have different ideas about if they’ll add to their brood or not.
The singer and TV presenter made the confession during a recent interview – and admitted that his ‘broody’ feelings came out of the blue recently.
‘All of a sudden I said I want another baby,’ said Peter, 44.
‘It’s weird as I always said I don’t want to be changing nappies at 50, like Simon Cowell.’
Peter and Emily already have two children together – a son named Theo, one, and a daughter called Amelia, who is four.
Unfortunately for Peter, it doesn’t look as though he’ll be hearing the pitter patter of tiny feet any time soon, as Emily has different ideas about growing their family.
He went on to confess that his wife Emily MacDonagh isn’t keen to fall pregnant again right now.
‘She’s quite content not to have one and is full on back at work,’ he told The Mirror.
‘When we both work it’s tough.’
Emily works as a doctor and previously opened up about her concerns about returning to the hospital.
‘I am excited to go back to work but I’m a little nervous about juggling it with family life,’ she wrote in her OK! column in August.
It’s not uncommon for parents like Peter and Emily to have differing opinions on starting or expanding a family.
Age, horror stories from friends and money are just some of the reasons why someone might be nervous to take the plunge.
And not feeling ‘ready’ can be another major concern.
While there is no easy way of convincing a partner to conceive, it’s important to understand that their opinion is just as valid as yours.

Peter – who tied the knot with Emily in July 2015 – also shares two children with ex-wife Katie Price. The former couple’s son Junior, 12, was born in 2005, while his little sister Princess, 10, followed in 2007.
