Peter Andre has confirmed that his girlfriend Emily MacDonagh has given birth to a “beautiful baby girl”.
Rumors began spreading on Tuesday evening that Peter had welcomed his third child, but the singer confirmed the reports Wednesday morning.
Peter wrote, “Now that I have had the opportunity to tell Junior and Pringles, we are very happy to announce the safe arrival of our beautiful baby girl. We are extremely thrilled and mum and bubba are doing fine.”
Andre adds, “We are looking forward to a nice quiet couple of weeks getting to know our baby. Thanks to everyone at Musgrove Park Hospital.”
On Tuesday evening, Twitter users who claim to have seen the couple at the hospital took to the social networking site to break the exciting news. One fan tweeted, “Peter Andre is in the hospital I work at with Emily and his baby daughter omg.”
The couple announced the pregnancy back in July after dating for about a year, after meeting through Emily’s father – a surgeon who had operated on Peter in 2010 to remove kidney stones.
Peter, 40, already has a daughter named Princess and son Junior with ex-wife Katie Price.
In an interview last year, the singer told of his excitement at becoming a father for the third time and the joy of Emily, 23, being able to breastfeed their daughter.
Peter Andre said, “I had a meltdown in Mothercare. I wasn’t prepared for the breast pump, I nearly passed out when I saw it. This is the first time I’ll experience breast-feeding, so I needed to ask lots about that too.”
We’re guessing with Katie Price’s huge fake jugs that she was unable or didn’t choose to breast-feed her children.
The singer plans to put a ring on it, but will not give up any details on when or how he will pop the question.
