Peter Andre’s wife Emily says she’s like a ‘big sister’ to Katie Price’s children

Peter Andre’s wife Emily has said she is a "big sister" to her stepchildren, Katie Price’s kids, Princess and Junior.

The 29-year-old opened up about how she deals with being a stepmother to Princess and Junior, saying she treates them "fairly" with her own kids Theodore and Amelia.

Asked about how she parents with her older husband, Emily said: "It’s a difficult one. I think probably I’m more like a big sister role, I would say.

"It’s also about keeping things fair between the younger children as well, but it works well. It’s been a long time now. We have settled into our routine."

Peter added that the children are "just fantastic," after he took his two children with Katie in to live with him and Emily last year.

The couple said they "work as a team" to look after each other when they’re both busy with work, with each of them giving and taking when needed.

Peter continued: "We’re both really busy. Some months for me are really full on and Emily has to hold the fort with work, it’s a lot. She is great."

Fans were made to feel slightly awkward by their happy demeanour, especially after Katie has had quite the tumultuous year and was not mentioned at all in the interview.
