Yesterday was an exciting day for Peter Andre and his girlfriend Emily McDonagh as they announced the birth of their first child together – a little baby girl, naw! However, if the couple held any hopes that Pete’s ex-wife Katie Price would take the high ground and offer her congratulations, they were to be sorely disappointed, as the former glamour model tweeted about her day and made no mention of her ex-husband’s happy news.

Katie Price has snubbed Peter Andre and his girlfriend Emily MacDonagh’s news – that Emily gave birth to the couple’s first daughter.

Despite sharing two children – Princess and Junior – the former glamour model clearly did not fancy taking the high ground and offer her congratulations, not on social media anyway.

Instead, the 25-year-old tweeted of her mundane daily routine, updating her fans frequently after Peter announced his happy news.

She tweeted: “Where has the time gone today! Rode dressage horse, then jumping lesson, Jett soo good watching me while I feed him in between lessons bless”, followed by: “Now my sister blow drying my hair then start cooking dinner today has gone quick”.

An hour later she tweeted: “I’m cooking 2 course meal for us all tonight from my Mary Berrys cookbook, @kieran0322 did amazing the other night, treacle sponge was gorge”, she finally mentioned her four children, writing: “Yaay I have the kids till next week x”

If her tweets were slightly more interesting, we definitely would have been more accommodating, but why not stop talking about blow drying your hair and offer congratulations to your children’s father?!

Third-time dad Peter Andre was probably too delighted to notice anyway, as he wrote in a statement on his website: “Now that I have had the opportunity to tell Junior & Pringles, we are very happy to announce the safe arrival of our beautiful baby girl

“We are extremely thrilled and mum and bubba are doing fine. We are looking forward to a nice quiet couple of weeks getting to know our baby. Thanks to everyone at Musgrove Park Hospital ))”

However, Katie’s refusal to acknowledge Pete’s new on her Twitter account might be a counter-attack to her ex-husband’s snub when she gave birth to her fourth child Jett Riviera. At the time, a pal told Now magazine: “Katie’s had no contact from him – not even a ‘congratulations.’ She’s hurt that the father of two of her kids can’t drop her a line to see if she’s ok.

“She’s wondering: ‘How can he do this to me and our family?’

It certainly looks like they’re not making friends any time soon!
