Peter Andre shares struggles with newborn as he gives candid update

Peter Andre has shared an update as he adjusts to life as a dad-of-five. The singer welcomed his third child with wife Emily on 2 April and the couple have been enjoying the newborn stage all over again.

Peter, 50, is also dad to Amelia, 10, and Theo, seven, with Emily, as well as Junior, 18, and Princess, 17, with ex-wife Katie Price. He has been sharing updates on social media after he and Emily, 33, welcomed their baby girl - who is yet to be given a name.

In his latest post, Peter jokingly celebrated having a night of "decent sleep" while caring for his newborn. He posted a clip of him in his dressing gown cheering outside his home.

"love your sense of humour," another follower penned. Somebody else commented: "@peterandre Absolutely brilliant," with an applause emoji.

Peter opened up about his baby daughter to OK!, and shared his struggles over deciding on a name with Emily. He told us: "We’d like to thank everyone for their kind messages following the birth of our beautiful baby daughter! We’re all in a baby bubble just now and Emily and the baby are doing great. Everything feels perfect.

"We’ve been trying out names that our friends and family have suggested, but then Emily and I don’t seem to agree on them. So I think it’s only fair that Emily decides – I hope she picks a good one. It’s been great that the kids have been off school for the holidays so we can spend time together as a family.

"While we work a name out, we’re just trying to differentiate between day and night. The lack of sleep is real already!"

Peter has not shut down the idea of expanding his brood further in the future either, saying "you never know" when asked about a sixth child. He added to Woman magazine: "But I said I wouldn't have a fifth. Then again, you never know. But it is up to Emily, isn't it, not me. But no, I don't think so."
