Peter Andre has admitted that although he once classed himself as a 'strict' parent, he's now a much more 'relaxed' dad as he's about to welcome his fifth child.
The pop star, who is about to become a father again at 50, shared his thoughts during a chat with his wife Emily on his GB News show, Saturday Morning Live. Peter, who is dad to Junior, 18, Princess, 16, Millie, 10, and Theo, seven, said: "In terms of the relationship with my kids, I always say how being a parent is first and foremost the job.
That's a given. But also being a friend is important as it means they can open up to you and they can talk to you.
He continued: "Now Junior, my eldest, is a bit disappointed in my parenting because I was so strict with him [than] with the other two. But I'm not as strict now. As each child came along, I became less and less strict." Emily also shared some insights into their parenting style and revealed, "I think we just try to be open with them.
We just have open dialogue in the family. Who's the strictest one? I think it's a balance. I learned a lot from Pete as well, but you've got to be strict and have those boundaries.
They have to know that there's love there as well." The 34 year old then went on to discuss how she helps her children navigate social media and body image expectations, adding: "It just wasn't around when I was a teenager.
So that's something we're learning every day, and how to cope with it. With the body image side of things, I just try to be really positive with all the kids about their strengths in all areas. "I try not to focus too much on their appearance.
