Peter Andre and wife Emily welcome a new baby boy!

Singer Peter Andre and his wife Emily MacDonagh have welcomed a baby boy.

It is the couple’s second child, following the birth of their daughter, Amelia, in January 2014.

Confirming the news, a spokesman for Andre said that “mum and baby are doing well” following the birth on Monday.

On Tuesday, the Mysterious Girl singer tweeted: “Very very happy for our new baby boy”, later posting: “Thanks so much for all you’re lovely comments. Buzzing.”

Peter, 43, married Emily, 16 years his junior, in Exeter in July 2015.

He already has two other children from his relationship with glamour model Katie Price, son Junior Savva, 11, and daughter Princess Tiaamii Crystal Esther, nine.

Less than a month ago, Peter travelled to a specialist clinic in Amsterdam to find out exactly how it feels to give birth, in support of his expecting wife.

Describing the experience as “hell,” he told ITV’s Loose Women: “I felt like a sledgehammer had hit me.”
