Peter, 50, got candid about his "often moody daughter" in the caption of his post. 

"Happy 16th birthday to my sweet, kind, caring and, let’s be honest, often moody daughter," he wrote. "Hope today is everything you wish for. Pancakes are ready when you come downstairs as requested. But you still have to clean your plate. A princess to everyone else but always Bista to me."

The nickname 'Bista' was confirmed by fans in the comments, who recalled when Peter's 18-year-old son Junior was younger, he couldn't properly say "sister," instead using "bista" as a term of endearment for his younger sibling.

"So proud of you. Stay kind, humble and funny. Love you so so much," the father-of-four concluded in his post. Fans were quick to react to Peter's heartfelt tribute to his daughter, rushing to the comments to wish her a happy birthday.

"Lovely memories of beautiful Princess," confirmed a fan, as another wrote: "Happy 16th Birthday @officialprincess_andre hope you have the best day ever, you have grown into a sweet beautiful young lady." 

"It's been great watching her grow up over the years from a tiny baby, Junior too," chimed in a third fan, as a fourth wrote: "She is so lovely a credit to you."

Peter was also left on edge when his son Junior jet set to Ibiza for his birthday celebrations last week. After arriving at Wayne Lineker's O Beach Club, the aspiring singer made sure to post plenty of snaps on Instagram. 

Opening up about the conflicting feelings he was experiencing after dropping his son off at the airport, Peter posted a video on Instagram: "So I've just left the airport… Junior's going off on holiday with his friend. He's 18 man!" Peter began.

"A great day today obviously, we spent the day together and it was wonderful but taking him to the airport, I was getting that sick sort of feeling in my gut, but I really want him to have fun and enjoy himself. 

"He's with people I know so I know he's going to have a good time and he's performing in Ibiza Rocks… Ah man, it's hard you know, because you know now legally he's an adult. Anyway, just having a moment and wanted to share, hope you don't mind."
