PETER Andre opened up about his wife Emily MacDonagh's pain at dropping their son Theo, three, off at nursery for the first time.
The singer, 46, revealed how difficult his wife, 30, found it to say "goodbye" to her youngest child.
While speaking about their other child, Amelia's, sixth birthday, he revealed the eldest getting another year older didn't affect her as much as the Theo starting nursery.
"Emily was actually OK about Mills getting another year older, but found it hard saying bye to Theo when we dropped him off for his first morning at nursery last Wednesday," Peter Andre wrote in his new! Magazine column.
"I think it's going to take them both a while to get used to it."
Protective mum Emily revealed that Theo was a "traumatic" birth in 2016.
Theo was born three weeks premature because he was breech – where the baby doesn't turn in preparation for the birth.
She underwent injections to help the baby's lungs develop and she was then given a C-section weeks before her due date.
She told OK! magazine: "I went to hospital and they tried to turn him from the outside, which was quite painful, but I didn’t want a C-section so I had to get through it.
"They tried three times [to turn him] but he kept flipping back around.
"I felt robbed of having a natural birth but at least he’s healthy."
Peter admits he was overcome with emotion when Theo finally arrived, and they were both in floods of tears.
He added: "Ems was besotted instantly, she was crying saying to the baby: ‘I’m so in love with you!’
"I was thinking. ‘God. This has been so traumatic!'
The couple very rarely show pictures of their two children as Emily doesn't want them online – unlike Peter's other children Junior, 14, and Princess, 12, with ex wife Katie Price.
However, that doesn't stop the Mysterious Girl singer from gushing over his kids.
The star revealed in 2018 that he was teaching his then-2-year-old kid to be bilingual by teaching him Greek.
Peter was born to Greek-Cypriot parents and was teaching the toddler both Greek and English after being left amazed by his speech progress.
evealing that Theo can understand questions that he is asked in Greek, Peter revealed that his son is "so much happier" now that he can communicate properly.
Writing in his New! magazine column, the star shared: "Over the last couple of weeks we've noticed a real improvement in his speech – he can converse properly and his understanding of Greek has got better, too.
"If I hold something up and ask him what colour it is in Greek, he replies in English!
"He's so much happier now he's able to talk more because he can tell us what he wants and there's no frustration there. He's a little ledge."
