It seems there's a real baby boom this summer! Peter Andre is set to be a dad again as his girlfriend Emily MacDonagh is pregnant. Meanwhile, Pete's ex Katie Price is just weeks away from giving birth. We can't keep up!

Katie Price could be feeling a little like Peter Andre has stolen her baby thunder today.

Just weeks before Katie is due to give birth, he ex-husband Peter has confirmed his girlfriend Emily MacDonagh is pregnant.

A spokeswoman for Pete and Emily confirmed to MailOnline: "It is true that they are expecting a baby, they are over the moon."

Rumours began circulating that the pair could be pregnant last month, when Pete, 40, was snapped with his hand on 23-year-old Emily's stomach.

Emily, who's been dating Pete for around a year, has just qualified as a doctor and won't be giving up her career to be a mum.

A close source told The Sun: "They absolutely adore each other, so having a baby together feels completely natural.

"Emily has just finished her degree at Bristol University and has passed all her exams. She still wants to have a career as a doctor, so it is very unlikely she will be a stay at home mum."

The couple met through Emily's father, who operated on the reality star in 2010 when he had kidney stones.

Earlier this year Pete denied he and Emily were planning to start a family.

He told new! magazine: "It’s too early for that sort of talk! Emily’s still got a year to go at uni, but you never know what’s going to happen, do you? We sort of reserve those conversations at the moment!"

Peter is already dad to eight-year-old Junior and Princess Tiaamii, six, from his marriage to Katie.

The Mysterious Girl singer and former glamour model Katie married in 2005 but by 2009 they were divorced.

They have since been involved in bitter legal battles and very public spats - but appear to have finally both moved on.

Katie is now married to part-time stripper Kieran Hayler, who she'd been dating a matter of months before they tied the knot earlier this year.

She is due to give birth to their first child together this summer.

Unusually, Katie - who also has a son Harvey, 11, from her romance with footballer Dwight Yorke - has kept rather quiet throughout her pregnancy.

Though she did recently admit this was her toughest yet.

She told ITV's Daybreak: "It’s the worst pregnancy I’ve had...lots of problems with being anemic, low platelets, a lot heavier than I was before, but it’s the fourth one so I know what to expect."
