Peter Andre hints he's ready to be a father for the fifth time aged 50

Peter Andre has hinted he is ready to welcome a fifth child into the world, but admitted it will not be up to him.

The TV personality, 50, is already a proud dad to Theo, six, and Amelia, nine, who he shares with wife Emily as well as Princess, 16, and Junior, 18, from his marriage to glamour model Katie Price.

Yet he could welcome another child as he has revealed he is open to the idea. It comes after Peter and Emily had previously ruled out the possibility of extending their family.

Vicky Pattison quizzed the Mysterious Girl hitmaker on the possibility while on the The Secret To podcast, to which he replied: "Children… I was like, when I get to 50 I'm done and then I find myself having conversations with Em going, 'Yeah you know, if we did have another child, where would we put Junior?'"

"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."

Former Geordie Shore star Vicky suggested Peter isn't ready to rule out having another child, as he added: "Listen, us guys can wishful think all we like, right, but it's going to be up to her.”

Peter has often been vocal on his parenting decisions and has confessed to adopting a stricter approach with his two youngest children he shares with Emily.

Theo and Amelia are rarely seen in the spotlight and kept off Peter's social media entirely. He also doesn't let them use their iPads more than twice a week.

Writing in his OK! column last year, he admitted: "We’re very strict with Millie and Theo when it comes to their iPads. They’re only allowed to go on them on a weekend morning and some car journeys, and we never let them have them in the week on school days."

While Peter has revealed he sometimes has issues with the clothes his 15-year-old daughter Princess chooses to wear. Speaking on GB News in February, Peter confessed to not being a big fan of some of Princess' outfit choices but did add that she often ignores his thoughts and wears what she wants to anyway.

Peter said: "I am [strict] but I think I've taken the bits from my parents that I loved. But then I've sort of lapsed a bit on things. I mean, for example, when my daughter sometimes dresses in things I don't really want her to dress in.

"But I also think, you know what, every girl of that age is doing that."
