Peter Andre’s son Junior is growing up, and the proud dad has revealed that the teenager is already making his own money.
The Mysterious Girl singer, 48, said that Junior, who has only just turned 16-years-old, is saving up to buy his first car for when he turns 17 next year.
He explained that Junior, who he shares with his ex-wife Katie Price, has been putting money into his bank account for years.
“I’ve been building his account over the years,” Peter said.
He continued: “He has a card and even doing shoots like this we’ve done together the money goes into his account.”
“It will go into things like him buying his first car,” Peter added to OK! magazine.
Junior recently told the publication that it’s his “dream” to be able to drive.
He said: “I’ll be driving in a year. I cannot wait; that’s my dream right now. I can drive wherever I want.”
Peter said Junior isn’t spoilt and is always grateful to receive presents as he appreciates the value of things.
He said: “There’s a difference between kids being spoiled and kids being brats. Being spoiled just means wanting for nothing.”
Peter continued: “I remember I bought Junior a Christmas present and he said: ‘Dad, thank you so much, you’re such a good dad,’ and I found out later from Princess that he didn’t like it at all, but he was so appreciative I’d bought it for him.
“If we go shopping he’ll say: ‘Dad I don’t want that it’s too expensive,’ even though he has his own money now.”
As well as Junior, Peter also shares his daughter Princess, 13, with his first wife Katie.
He is also dad to Amelia, seven, and four-year-old Theodore with his second wife Emily MacDonagh, who he married in 2015.
Peter recently said that Junior had harshly told him that no one would listen to his music if he doesn’t get it right.
The nineties popstar said he had considered relaunching his music career, and took advice from his son.
Speaking on Lorraine, Peter explained: “For the music business, the songs that your kids are listening too as well, you’re always very open to lots and lots of different music anyway but that helps too.”
“My son, his choice of music is very different to mine,” Peter added.
“But actually he’s educating me. He’s saying, ‘you can go and do a pop-y song but most people won’t listen to it.’ And he’s right. I’m like, ‘okay alright!'”
“Tough love!” said Lorraine Kelly, as Peter went on: “He’s like, ‘you need to get in with these producers and those producers,’ and I love hearing that from him.”
