The couple were surprised by pregnancy tests

Peter Andre and Emily MacDonagh were gobsmacked to discover they had a baby on the way.

The couple, who went public with the happy news in July, conceived their child in spring and found out in May.

‘We’d been away for the weekend and were on the plane flying back from Spain,’ Emily, 24, recalls. ‘I just said to Peter: ‘”I don’t feel quite right.” 

‘Then at home, we stood in the kitchen and I was like: “I’ll do a test quickly, but I’m sure it’s nothing.”‘

The 2am pregnancy test proved positive, as did another three tests later in the morning.

‘We were silent for about ten minutes and kept looking at the tests in shock,’ says Peter, 40.

‘I know that people say we should have been more careful, but these things happen.’
