De­spite years of star­ring in fly-on­the-wall re­al­ity TV shows, th­ese days, Peter An­dre tends to keep his mar­riage with wife Emily out of the pub­lic eye.

But, after the cute cou­ple made a rare red car­pet ap­pear­ance to­gether at the Pride Of Bri­tain Awards last week, they were keen to chat to us about their re­cent hol­i­day.

Daz­zling in a black-and­white gown, Emily re­vealed, ‘We’ve just come back from Dubai. It was lovely to spend some qual­ity time to­gether.’

Although the gor­geous ju­nior doc­tor is mum to Amelia, three, and 11-mon­thold Theo – as well as step­mum to Ju­nior, 12, and Princess, 10, from Peter’s mar­riage to Katie Price – she in­sists that tak­ing time away from their kids is im­por­tant to their par­ent­ing.

‘I do think you need time to­gether as a cou­ple to be bet­ter par­ents,’ ad­mit­ted the 28-year-old.

‘HE’S A VERY HANDS-ON DAD’

While they both looked glam­orous on the red car­pet, Peter con­fessed that they have a hec­tic home life.

‘To­day, I was mak­ing pan­cakes with one hand while Theo was hang­ing on to my leg,’ he laughed. ‘Then I had Bista [his nick­name for Princess] on my back, and Ju­nior yelling at me and try­ing to throw a ball for me to catch.’

Gig­gling along with her hus­band, Emily agreed with Pete, and gushed about how he’s a ‘great dad’, adding, ‘He’s very hands-on.’

‘I SLEEP-TRAINED THEO!’

Ap­pear­ing on ITV’s Lor­raine back in April, Peter ad­mit­ted that he was ‘sur­viv­ing on very lit­tle sleep’ be­cause Theo wasn’t sleep­ing through the night.

But when the singer, 44, briefly left the Pride Of Bri­tain red car­pet to sign au­to­graphs for his young fans, Emily smiled that the cou­ple had fi­nally cracked it…

‘Theo’s sleep­ing now – yay!’ she re­joiced. ‘I sleep-trained him. He’s amaz­ing now.’

The mum-of-two – who mar­ried Peter in July 2015 – also re­vealed that her baby is nearly walk­ing.

‘He’s nearly, nearly there

– I feel like he tricked us, as he kind of pro­gressed re­ally quickly at about seven months, and now he’s just tak­ing it easy,’ she laughed.

And, although she loves be­ing a stay-at-home mum, Emily added that she’s look­ing for­ward to go­ing back to work.

‘I’m ex­cited for the work side of it, but ner­vous about leav­ing the kids. But I think that’s nor­mal,’ she said.

The Pride Of Bri­tain Awards airs on Tues­day Novem­ber 7 at 8pm on ITV
