"The first few days, my head was the worst,” he shared. "My head was banging so much. I dunno how I got symptoms, because I'm a child, I'm 15. But my head was banging, my body was aching, my throat was fine.

He added: "Yeah, I've got Covid. And for some reason I have, like, symptoms. Normally minors don't get symptoms. It's not severe… it's just annoying."

Junior revealed he has tested positive for coronavirus in an Instagram post shared last week. He posted a message telling his followers, "I have tested positive for COVID," along with angry and anguished emojis.

Asked recently if he would be expanding his family further, Peter told HELLO!: "That is a question for Emily. No matter what us guys think, it's not up to us! She's the one who has to bear the child for nine months…. We discuss things all the time, it'll be down to her in the end."
