Peter Andre has admitted he had previously banned his daughter Princess from having a boyfriend until wife Emily made him change his "old-school mentality".
Writing in his weekly new! magazine column, singer Pete, 49, who is dad to Princess, 15, Junior, 17, Amelia, eight and Theo, five, says he used to have different rules for his eldest children until the NHS doctor, 32, made him see things differently. Here, he also discusses celebrating his and Emily's seventh wedding anniversary and the abortin ban in the US. Sign up – for free! – to see what he has to say.

Seven Years Of Bliss
Emily and I celebrate our seventh wedding anniversary next week. We’re also marking 10 years together, which is wonderful. It seems like yesterday when we first got together. I guess when you love someone, you don’t think of the time!
I was very organised with this anniversary and bought her present two months ago. Wool is the traditional gift for seven years, but I’m not going traditional for this one.
Emily is a gentle soul and an unbelievable mum. As we were friends first, we had that good foundation for our relationship. She really is my best friend.
I also think it’s important to have date nights and make time for us as
a couple, away from being parents. I believe happy parents equals happy kids, and vice versa.
We don’t ever really argue but we don’t agree on everything – but one thing I love is that we always talk it through then hug it out. I have to admit I’m always learning from Emily, but I don’t know if she ever learns from me!
One of the things she taught me was very early on, when Princess and Junior were younger. I’d say Junior could do this and that, and Princess had to be a nun and could never have a boyfriend.
Emily taught me that whatever rule I gave to Junior, I had to treat all the other children the same. She has made me look at things differently and change my old-school mentality.
Princess Makes Me Proud
It was Princess’ 15th birthday last week and she had a great day. She’s such a good girl – she makes me so proud.
She helps around the house and, as she’s a teenager, I really can’t complain. Yes, she is obsessed with TikTok and ignoring every conversation, but what 15-year-old isn’t?
As a birthday treat, I’ve organised for her and her friend to have a day out shopping in London at Westfield, and she’s allowed to bring a friend on our next holiday.
She said she wants her 16th birthday to be really special so her 15th was pretty low-key, but she loved it. We had a lovely meal as a family and she got the trainers she asked for.

A Woman's Body, A Woman's Choice
It was shocking to see that abortions are now banned or under serious threat in more than half of US states following a Supreme Court ruling.
I just can’t believe there aren’t laws against guns, yet there are laws for a woman deciding what to do with her own body.
There are too many “what ifs” in this situation, and people don’t know what a woman has been through to get to that point in her life.

Many people have said, “What if the partner doesn’t agree?” I say many partners may and do disagree, but whether anyone agrees or not, it’s the woman’s body so it’s 100% the woman’s choice.
It’s an ancient law, which in my opinion was wrong then and is wrong now.
