Congratulations are in order as Peter Andre and Emily MacDonagh have welcomed their third child together.

The pair shared the happy news on Wednesday with a photo taken just ‘minutes’ after their baby girl’s birth.

Peter, who is now dad to five children, shared gorgeous photos of Emily cuddling their new arrival in a hospital bed, and wrote: ”We feel so overwhelmed right now. So happy to welcome our beautiful girl to the family.

‘Mum and daughter are doing amazing. Born Tuesday 2nd April 2024, 7lb 3oz and thankfully very healthy.’

He went on, alongside a photo of him meeting his new daughter for the first time: ‘Baby has been spoilt with cuddles from Junior, Princess, Amelia and Theo who are all in love with their new little sister. As parents, we couldn’t be happier.’

There is one problem however, as he added: ‘Only thing is…. She has no name yet. Help !’

He went on to thank ‘all the doctors, midwives and staff at Musgrove Park Hospital Taunton. You were incredible. And Emily’s parents, whom I adore. You have both been incredible.’

‘I’m so happy. Just off to hold her. Thanks everyone for reading.’

The Mysterious Girl singer, 51, and doctor Emily, 34, already share Amelia, who they welcomed in 2014, and Theo. who arrived two years later.

Loving messages have already been flooding in for the family on Instagram, including plenty of name suggestions for their little girl.

Christine McGuinness offered her ‘congratulations’ with a love-heart emoji, while Safiyya Vorajee wrote ‘congratulations such a beautiful addition to a wholesome family!’

In his OK magazine column on March 25, Peter revealed they thought Emily – who had only just gone on maternity leave – was going into labour the week before, but it turned out to be Braxton Hicks.

‘Emily and I are on total tenterhooks now that the baby is due any day,’ he wrote.

‘We thought it was going to happen last week when she seemed to be having contractions. It ended up being Braxton Hicks and I kept making her laugh during it.

‘She, like many other mums, is a tough ol’ cookie and takes it all in her stride.’

He hoped him and Emily could have one final ‘date night’ before the baby arrived.

Peter announced they were expecting their third child together in October, when he took to Instagram with a snap of Emily holding up ultrasounds and wrote: ‘We are delighted to share the news with you all. A new addition to our family in 2024 The kids are so excited. So are we.’

The post was flooded with well wishers, with Jess Wright writing: ‘Congratulations,’ while Lizzie Cundy added, ‘What !! Another ?? Wow !!! Huge congratulations darlings!!!!’

The likes of Ashley Roberts, Catherine Tyldesley and Katie Price’s ex Kieran Hayler also commented with their congratulations.

Earlier that year Peter dropped hints he would love to become a dad for the fifth time eight years after welcoming his youngest, Theo.

Speaking on Vicky Pattison’s The Secret To podcast in July, he said: ‘Children… I was like, when I get to 50 I’m done and then I find myself having conversations with [Emily] going, “Yeah you know, if we did have another child, where would we put Junior?”‘.

He added: ‘I can’t even believe we have those conversations and that makes me think that I just don’t know, it’s just one of those things. It’s just weird that we even have those conversations, so I don’t know.’

‘Listen, us guys can wishful think all we like, right, but it’s going to be up to her.’

Peter and Emily married on 11 July 2015 in Exeter at Mamhead House in a celebration which included Greek plate smashing, African drumming, fireworks, and a performance from Pete himself.

He told OK! magazine of the big day: ‘I wanted so much entertainment as I didn’t want any waiting around or lulls in the day. I wanted people to be surprised the whole time!’
