Peter Andre is so excited to be a dad again

Updated: 

Peter Andre has been sharing his excitement at becoming a dad for the fourth time.

The popstar and his wife, Emily MacDonagh, welcomed their new son on November 22, three weeks before his due date, after Emily experienced early contractions.

He is a little brother for their daughter Amelia, who will be three in January, and Peter's son Junior, 11, and Princess, nine, from his previous relationship with Katie Price.

According to OK! magazine, Peter said: "I'm so excited my little boy is here! He's such a joy and is doing really well - as is his mum. He was nearly three weeks early, but he weighed 6lb 10oz, a bit more than Amelia did."

Peter went on: "I was so tired because I'd been sleeping on the floor in the maternity unit. I've got such bad baby brain, though.

"I'm struggling but I haven't had to breastfeed so I'm lucky. My respect for Ems just goes up and up."

He also revealed that Junior and Princess were the first ones to hear the news: "J and P were the first people I told about the baby. They got to meet their new brother at the weekend and they love him already.

"Mills has been awesome too, and is loving being a big sister. She calls him Brother Baby - it's so cute. I was putting her to bed the other night and with the new baby here, Mills looks like a giant now."

Writing in his New magazine column, Peter admitted the new baby was still nameless: "We're nowhere near choosing a name yet, though. We have so many we like, but every time we go to say it, it just doesn't stick. I love names like Oscar and Arthur, but Emily's not so keen."
