Peter Andre and his wife Emily are counting down the days till their son Theo attends his first day at school. The couple - who have been married since 2015 - will be preparing for the milestone moment next month, something which Peter claims will be bittersweet for his junior doctor wife.

In his latest column for New magazine, the 48-year-old said: "I recently posted some videos of me messing around with Theo on Instagram. Some people were asking: 'Is he laughing or crying?' Because he was laughing so much. He jumps on me all the time.

He added: "She obviously wants him to go for him, but at the same time she's like, 'He's my little baby!' It will be a big day when it comes around."

Peter and Emily, 32, are proud parents to two children: Amelia, seven, and four-year-old Theo. The Mysterious Girl star shares Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, with his ex-wife, Katie Price.

Last month, the couple - who tied the knot on 11 July 2015 at Mamhead House in Exeter - celebrated their six-year wedding anniversary. Pete took to Instagram with a loving tribute to his bride, although he admitted he was facing a dilemma.

"Just like that, we've been married for 6 years," he wrote. "You're not only the most amazing wife, you are an incredible mother to our children. You also are the kindest person I know. Happy Anniversary Emily. Oh and FOOTBALLS COMING HOME…... On that note please help everyone. It's my wedding anniversary and Emily doesn't watch football. What do I do?"

Emily, meanwhile, remarked: "6 years today! 6 amazing years thanks to the amazing person I married. Here’s to many many more [heart emoji] @peterandre."
