Peter Andre has largely kept his two youngest children with wife Emily Macdonagh out of the public eye, but the Mysterious Girl singer delighted fans on Wednesday when he shared a rare photo of his daughter Amelia. The six-year-old appeared to be getting ready for school, dressed in a blue and white summer dress with a smart white collar - but it was her new hairstyle that really caught our attention.

Peter Andre showed off his hairdresser skills on Instagram

Amelia's long honey-blonde hair was fastened into a high ponytail using a matching blue and white scrunchie - a hairstyle created by Peter himself. The doting dad was clearly very pleased with his hairdressing skills, as he captioned the picture: "Dads can do hair too." We never doubted you, Peter!

Peter and Emily are always careful about keeping both Amelia and her brother three-year-old Theo's faces hidden from the cameras - until recently! The 47-year-old revealed that his wife was not impressed after he showed Theo's face for the first time on TV on Loose Women in May. Taking to Instagram to share a screengrab of the TV moment, he remarked: "I'm sooo in the dog house. Hey accidents happen we are in lockdown... @loosewomen @itv."

Peter is also father to Princess, 12, and Junior, 14, whom he shares with ex-wife Katie Price. While he seems happy for his two eldest kids to appear on social media, Peter previously told Closer magazine: "Emily's one of those parents that doesn't want it, so I've got to respect that."

He added: "I still get away with little things... There have been times where I've posted stuff and you can't really see the kids' faces... I post photos of them because I'm proud of them and of these beautiful moments but I also understand that not everyone wants that."
