Peter Andre & His Berry Patch Kids

Peter Andre and his two kids, Junior and Princess Tiaamii, went berry picking at Roundstone Pick Your Own Farm in London today.

In a recent interview with UK magazine Fabulous, Peter admits that he and estranged wife Katie Price have been hiding their separation from their children: “The kids don’t actually know we’ve split up,” Says Peter. “When I leave them with Katie, I just say that Daddy has to go to work so I can buy them toys. And when Katie hands them over to me, I just tell them Mummy is working.

“I know I have to tell them the truth at some point,” he adds. “But it feels a bit like I want them to believe in Father Christmas that little bit longer. I want to protect them. It all just suddenly hit me in the Ikea car park. I had to go home, and that night I cried myself to sleep. It’s something I haven’t done since I was a kid, but it was the only way I knew to get through that pain.”

    That sounds like something that will screw the kids up later in life. I think Peter and Katie should tell their kids the truth. They’re not the only kids whose parents have divorced.

    The kids are very young though, its a difficult one. I’m sure they must sense that something isn’t quite right between their Mum and Dad. I suppose its up to the two of them to do what they think is best for their own children.

    i cant get over princess’ hair….how can 2 people with almost black hair have a kid with white blonde hair? i know sometimes its lighter when their young, but that’s so drastic.

    I’m not a parent, I’ve never been married, and i’ve never been divorced, but I babysat a 2-year-old yesterday. He asked me where his parents were a few times, and I told him the truth — a movie — but he would disagree with me every time, and tell me they were at work.

    Peter seems to love his kids, and he is still figuring out how to explain the situation to minds that probably can’t grasp it. It’s not like Peter and Katie have been separated THAT long. I’m sure they’ll tell them soon enough.

    I’m kinda fascinated by Princess.

    I agree with some of the comments. Princess (what a name!) certainly doenst look like either parent. But what really bugs me is THAT PACIFIER~ Ugh. Every picture she’s in, it’s in her mouth. I can bet money that it wont go away anytime soon. Because with all that’s going on in her life, neither parent with work with her to wein (sp?) her off of the thing.

    aww bless Pete, he has really grown on me he seems down to earth and a good father. I feel sorry for him and his children I think they are all better off without Katie.
    r.e Princess’s hair, I think Katie was blonde when she was younger and I can see Pete in her too. Genes are a funny thing, and it is very possible for 2 dark haired people to have a blonde child.
