Peter Andre points out the 'sad reality' of men as old as Jon Snow, 73, having babies with younger women

PETER Andre has pointed out the "sad reality" of men as old as Jon Snow, 73, having babies with younger women.

It comes after the Channel 4 news presenter and wife Dr Precious Lunga, 46, welcomed their first child into the world earlier this month.

Jon, who already shares two daughters with his ex-wife Madeleine Colvin, 64, wanted to "seal" his 11 year marriage with Precious by starting a family.

After suffering "numerous medical setbacks and miscarriages," the pair decided that the best option was to have a baby via a surrogate.

The happy news got dad-of-four Peter, 48, thinking about the impact of having an older parent would have on a child.

In his most recent column for New! magazine, the star wrote: "Channel 4 News presenter Jon Snow has welcomed a baby boy with his wife at the age of 73.

"Any news of a baby is lovely, but I guess the sad reality is how many years does the child have with its father?

"If I was 18 and my dad was 91, I'd find that hard."

However the Mysterious Girl singer went on to ponder about what it would be like the other way around.

He went on to say: "On the flip side you could have a baby at 20 and something could happen to you at 25.


"It's not something I've ever thought of before really. I'm even struggling thinking about having children after 50!"

Pete is father to four children who he shares with both ex-wife Katie Price and his current wife Emily MacDonagh, 31.

The singer shares Junior, 15, and 13-year-old Princess with the former glamour model – who he had when he was 33 and 35.

Peter started dating Emily in 2012.

They welcomed their first child Amelia, seven, into the world in 2014.

Two years later the doctor gave birth to their son Theodore, four.

The couple, who tied the knot in 2015, revealed that they want TWO more kids before Peter hits 50.

The hunk told The Sun Online back in June last year: "Here I was trying to get my head around the thought of having one more child, but then Emily throws a bombshell on me of having two more children.

“So now I’m really confused about what she wants.”

Peter added: “Before it was a definite no no, but now there’s a big possibility."

At the start of 2021 Peter revealed he WILL have his third child with wife Emily this year.

He has set himself a strict deadline – and vowed not to be changing nappies when he's 50.

"If Emily and I are ever going to have a third child, this year might have to be the one," he wrote in New magazine.

"I think the fact we're talking about it constantly means it is a possibility.

"Basically if it were to happen, it would need to be this year if it were up to me.

"I don't want to be changing nappies when I'm 50."
