Proud Peter Andre has publicly congratulated his fiancée Emily MacDonagh for qualifying as a doctor. On Monday evening, the singer confirmed that Emily had finished all her medical studies in a sweet message posted on Twitter.
"She's only gone and done it – Emily passed her final exams. Dr Emily Macdonagh, sounds great doesn't it?," Pete, 41, wrote, alongside a candid snapshot of the happy couple. "So so proud :) :)"
The next morning, Peter and Emily, 25, were spotted arriving hand-in-hand at the ITV studios ahead of the star's interview on Good Morning Britain. During his appearance on the breakfast show, he took the opportunity to once again congratulate his wife-to-be.
"I can't even argue with her on anything now medically," he joked. "I'm so proud of her. Doctor Emily!
"She could have obviously done her finals a year ago but fell pregnant and had our wonderful daughter. A lot of people were like, 'Are you going to finish?' She was like, 'Of course I am!' And now, she's done it! She's passed her exams.
"I'm so proud of her," he said of Emily's achievement. "I just hope for her sake I don't become a hypochondriac!"
Emily had the difficult task of balancing her studies with caring for the couple's baby girl Amelia, who turned one on 7 January. She temporarily moved out of the couple's East Grinstead home and back in with her parents in Somerset while finishing her degree at Bristol University.
With her exams now all out of the way, Peter is encouraging Emily to pursue her dream of becoming a practising doctor - and has said he would consider the possibility of being a stay-at-home dad further down the line, while Emily concentrates on her career.
Under the NHS system of entry, trainee doctors usually follow up medical school by completing a two-year foundation programme, during which they combine work experience with study. A GP would then spend a further three years in training, and for other specialities this can be anywhere from five to eight years.
