Peter Andre was left sad and concerned after his three-year-old tot asked for a coronavirus test after simply coughing.
The father-of-four – who shares two kids with NHS doctor wife Emily – is having to face the fact that his kids are too aware of the current situation and what symptoms to keep a watchful eye on.
Writing in his new! mag column, Peter, 47, reflected on the sad moment he realised his son is too aware of the current risks.
He wrote: “There are so many terrible things going on right now and the other day something happened that made me really sad and brought home the situation that we’re in.”
He went on: “Theo coughed and said, ‘I need to have a corona test’. I thought, ‘He’s three years old and that’s the first thing he thought of!’
“It made me sad that he would think a cough is bad, but of course it’s unavoidable with the current situation.”
Peter and wife Emily share three-year-old son Theo, and six-year-old daughter Amelia.
Peter is also a proud dad to son Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, from his first marriage to former glamour model Katie Price.
But after his romance with Katie crumbled, Peter found love with Emily and the pair tied the knot in 2015.
After welcoming two kids so far, Peter recently opened up about the prospect of having a third child with Emily.
Peter said he and his wife are very hot and cold on the idea of having a third child.
Writing in his column for new! magazine, the father-of-four said: “I’m not sure why I’m often asked if I’ll have another child!
“If I say we should have another, Emily says, ‘I don’t think we should’. Then she’ll change her mind and I’ll say, ‘Not a chance in hell!'”
He added: “The fact that we both occasionally think we should means we probably will have another at some point. Then we’ll be done.
“When we first met, Emily said she wanted three biological kids and I said I wanted five. If we had another one that’s how it would end up.
“We’re not quite there yet, though.”
