Peter Andre’s devoted wife Emily has brushed off their 16-year age difference and said she has no qualms about the difference between them.
The NHS doctor is 32 while famous husband Peter is 49 and they share children Amelia, eight, and Theo, five.
And their age difference doesn’t seem to be a problem for them at all, as they married in 2015, five years after they met through their father – the doctor who was treating him for kidney stones.
Emily made it clear that she doesn’t even notice their age difference, Emily wrote in her OK! Column: “He’s turning 50 next year and it feels like he’s had this big prep as he’s been talking about turning 50 for the past five years!
“It doesn’t mean anything to me how old someone is. Age is just a number and Pete doesn’t look like 50. He’s also very young at heart.”
Emily joked that Peter is lucky he still looks young considering how much he sunbathes and admits she teases him that he’d still look like a teenager if he wasn’t so much lying in the sun with oil instead of sunscreen.
She added, “Jokes aside, none of us are worried about turning 50 and we’re trying to plan something really memorable to do as a family.”
Peter, who also shares children Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, with ex-wife Katie Price, met Emily in rather unusual circumstances.
It was 2010 when he needed emergency surgery in Cornwall to treat some very painful kidney stones.
And through his doctor – and her father – Dr. Ruaraidh MacDonagh, the then 36-year-old met the then 20-year-old medical student Emily.
Peter told it once living in Cornwall: “This is the strangest thing. I had emergency kidney surgery in Taunton. I wasn’t even in the area, but I was transferred there and the on-call counselor was Emily’s father.
“I was so grateful I said, ‘If there’s ever anything I can do…’ I later got him some tickets to the Plymouth show, but he couldn’t make it, so his wife, Rebecca, came with their daughter, Emily.
“We laughed a bit and I was like, ‘Oh, these are really nice people.’ Over time, Emily and I realized we had feelings for each other and two years after we met at the Plymouth Pavilions we were married.”
