Emily Andre risks Katie Price's wrath as she talks about being a stepmum after row

By Susan Knox

Emily Andre has opened up about her life with stepchildren Junior, 16, and Princess, 14 - risking Katie Price's wrath after her scathing online attack.

The 32-year-old is a proud stepmum to popstar Pete's eldest two children, and the pair also share daughter Amelia, eight, and son Theo, five.

Lifting the lid on her parenting duties, Emily revealed that juggling her time on the frontline during the pandemic and being a mum, as well as a stepmum has been quite 'challenging', but she finds that it's all worth it in the end because she's making a difference in so many different people's lives.

Speaking to New Magazine, the NHS doctor revealed: "If I can make a difference, then that makes it worthwhile for me.

"I'd be lying if I said it's not hard work. I try to juggle my mum role and any my work for the NHS. But I love both."

Emily also opened up about the 'mum guilt' she suffers from whenever she puts herself first.

"I have got a lot better at taking time for myself. I never used to do that. I would feel guilty a lot. If I had an hour off, I'd think I should be doing something with all the kids. But I can't look after everyone unless I look after myself."

It comes after Peter's ex-wife Katie called out the NHS doctor in a now-deleted social media rant.

Sharing a cover of a magazine featuring Dr Emily Andre on her Instagram Stories, Katie, 43, called the mum-of-two a "disgusting person" and claimed the NHS doctor prevented Princess from visiting her in rehab last year.

In the now deleted post, the former glamour model made a number of accusations against Emily.

"My mouth has been shut for so long but I've had enough of people selling stories on me and particularly this so called woman @dr_emily_official," Katie began in the now-deleted Instagram Story.

"Always said I don't want to be famous yet doesn't do too bad to stay away from media and TV and now trying to make a career out of it.

"So cringe she has used my children to make money in photo shoots yet covers her own children's faces up!"

Katie - who shares children Junior and Princess Andre with Emily's husband Peter - then went on accuse the doctor of 'being jealous' of the relationship she has with her eldest daughter.

"She claims to be a doctor who clearly doesn't have a clue about mental health," the mum-of-five continued in the post.

"Oh and stopped my daughter from visiting me at The Priory when she wanted to see her mum. She is so jealous of my relationship I have with Princess and puts me down.

Katie concluded: "Emily you are not and never will be my kids' parent so mind your own business, you're so two faced and definitely not the person you portray to the public.

"I think you're a disgusting person so stop trying to interfere in my life."

Following her outburst, furious fans dubbed Katie as 'disgraceful' for her hurtful words towards Emily.
