Peter Andre has praised son Junior’s resilience after he was forced to self-isolate.
The 15-year-old, who Peter shares with ex-wife Katie Price, is having to isolate at home after some pupils in his year at school tested positive for Covid-19.
But Pete says his son has taken it all in his stride, and is working hard at home to keep up with his classmates.
“When I told him he had to self-isolate he was excited because it meant staying at home – but when he realised he had to do all his lessons on Zoom from 8.15am, he wasn’t too happy!
“It’s quite full-on for kids when they have to do the same amount of work at home, as it’s not easy to stay motivated, so I give him credit for that. The main thing is he doesn’t have any symptoms and feels fine at the moment.”
Doting dad Peter celebrated his other son Theo’s 4th birthday at the weekend.
The Mysterious Girl singer, 47, shares Junior and Princess, 13, with Katie and Theo and Amelia, six, with wife Emily.
Pete took to Instagram to show off the way he and Emily had made over their home for their little boy.
His presents were all wrapped up ready for him in yellow paper with rainbow bows, sitting underneath a huge arch of multi-coloured balloons.
Giving his fans a glimpse inside the bash, the proud dad-of-four thanked Emily for organising everything.
He penned: “Theo is hopefully going to be one happy boy tomorrow. He’s turning 4 already. Thanks Ems for organising all this. @dr_emily_official”
Pete also shared a video of Theo’s amazing birthday cake, which depicted a grassy fenced-off area with plenty of trees and cute animals on top as well as a big windmill.
He wrote: “Theo is obsessed with windmills ( no idea why) so Emily created this beauty. Happy birthday Theo. Love you so so much. Thanks @dr_emily_official”
Emily marked Theo’s birthday by sharing a beautiful intimate picture of Peter and herself at the birth.
She captioned it: “I can’t believe that on this day 4 years ago we met our amazing little boy! It feels like yesterday! Happy birthday Theo”
In the image, Emily is lying down on the hospital bed cradling her baby as Peter leans over her to give his new son a kiss.
He commented on her post: ” I cried like a baby and I wasn’t the baby”.
