When asked by his daughter how he felt, the doting father replied: "I haven't felt like this for two or three years. I had Covid, but that was a different kind of feel, but that was horrible."

Meanwhile, back in August, Peter confessed he couldn't have been prouder when Junior just signed with Rebel Records and Columbia Records UK.

The star's son teased his music on Thursday

"It's your turn my son. So so proud. 6 months ago when I took you into @rebelrecs and got you in the booth, I knew you would blow them away," he wrote.
