Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the 'Mysterious Girl' hitmaker shared a reel of snapshots, including an adorable throwback photo of Peter hugging baby Junior, numerous selfies and several pictures of Junior looking dapper on the red carpet.

In his caption, he penned: "Happy 19th birthday my son. I love you son. You're the best."

Peter, 51, shares Junior and daughter Princess with his ex Katie Price. The pair met during their stint on I'm a Celebrity in early 2004 and married just over a year later in September 2005 at Highclere Castle, the home of Downton Abbey, three months after welcoming their son. They officially split in 2009 when Princess was two years old.

The singer is now happily married to second wife Emily, with whom he shares Amelia, ten, Theo, seven, and baby daughter Arabella.

In recent years, Junior has started to follow in his famous father's footsteps. He signed a music deal at the age of 16 and released his debut single, Slide, back in 2023.

During an appearance on Loose Women in 2022, Peter said that he made his son wait until he was 16 to sign a contract as it was the same age he was when he signed his own respective contract back in 1989.

When asked by panellist Coleen Nolan how Junior was getting on in his music career, Peter said: "I'm so proud of him, I wouldn't let him sign his deal until he was 16, which is exactly the same age [I was] when I signed my deal."

"I've actually got a picture of the two contracts, the one Junior signed at 16 and the contract I signed at 16. I should put that up one day," he added.

Bursting with pride, Peter was also quick to heap praise on his son when he performed his first ever gig. Following Junior's huge milestone in 2022, Peter shared on social media: "Beyond proud of your first ever gig son. So much more to come…".

He followed this up by adding: "Show: smashed, eardrums: burst, post-show maccies: munched."
