See how the couple's relationship has blossomed

Peter Andre meets Emily MacDonagh after her doctor dad treats him for kidney stones in 2010.

They’re friends for two years before becoming an item.

‘Ems and I were both dating other people,’ reveals Peter. ‘Then one day we were looking at each other and said: “Um, why aren’t we dating each other?”‘

Peter and Emily go public in July 2012 when they arrive at the premiere of Magic Mike in London together.

‘Emily is a lovely girl and Peter thinks the world of her and her family,’ says Peter’s spokesman.

Peter is already dad to son Junior and daughter Princess with ex-wife Katie Price, who’s reportedly keen to meet Emily.

‘She wants to get a clear idea of who’ll be around her children,’ says a source.

Luckily for Katie, Peter and Emily don’t share a bedroom when the children are at his house.

‘When the kids are there, Emily still sleeps in the spare room,’ reveals Peter in September 2012.

‘It’s kind of weird because I’ll say to her: “Sorry, tonight you’re going to that room.”‘

Despite the fact that she’s dating a celebrity, Emily tries to stay away from the limelight and only occasionally joins Peter at red carpet events.

However, she does appear in Pete’s reality TV show Peter Andre: My Life before it ends – with her encouragement – in December 2013.

On the programme, Emily is seen comforting Pete as he struggles with his brother Andrew’s cancer battle. He later thanks her for helping him through a tough year.

‘Emily’s been there and her whole family have been a support,’ gushes Peter.

‘My kidney stones operation, getting my brother into the Royal Marsden Hospital – that was all down to them.’

Peter and Emily announce that they’re expecting a baby in July 2013. Their baby girl Amelia is born on 7 January 2014.

Peter later reveals that he’d romantically proposed days earlier, on New Year’s Eve 2013.

A year later, the pair happily celebrate Amelia’s first birthday.


Emily completes her doctor training and graduates from university in April and Peter bursts with pride. ‘She’s only gone and done it – Emily passed her final exams. Dr Emily Macdonagh, sounds great doesn’t it? So so proud:):),’ he said.

A few months later and the pair make a rare red carpet appearance together at the Silver Clef award and spark rumours that they’re expecting baby number two. The rumours are shot down but talk of a wedding reaches fever pitch.

A few days prior the couple had enjoyed a romantic trip to Cyprus, maybe to get their wedding tan sorted, and then Peter is spotted getting wedding-body ready at the gym.

In July the pair tie the knot in Mamhead House, Exeter. Peter said: ‘I feel like the luckiest man in the world as I have married the most beautiful girl in the world, who is also my best friend. I have my soulmate for life by my side.’

In August it is announced that Peter is joining Strictly but the pair are adamant that they will not fall victim to the ‘Strictly curse.’

The show kicks off at the end of September and even with his first dance Peter quickly becomes the favourite.
