Peter Andre is looking forward to experiencing a natural labour when his pregnant partner gives birth.

The reality TV star's girlfriend Emily MacDonagh is expecting their first child together - Peter's third, after his son Junior, eight, and daughter Princess Tiaamii, six, with ex-wife Katie Price - and he is already getting excited about the impending arrival

Writing in his new! magazine column, he said: ''It was reported last week that I said I'm looking forward to experiencing my first natural labour when Emily gives birth. I've said this before, but I'm really excited about it.

''I've always been emotional at the birth of my kids, so I can't imagine I'll be any different this time around.''

It has previously been reported Peter may be considering putting his career on hold to be a stay-at-home dad after Emily gives birth early next year, so she can continue to become a doctor.

A source said: ''Pete's made it clear Emily and the baby are his priority. He wants Emily to fulfil her dreams of becoming a doctor and has been saying he's happy about being a stay-at-home dad. He's even joked at how good he is at changing the nappies and burping.''
