Peter Andre has spoken out on worries his daughter Princess, 15, is “growing up too quickly”.
While attending the Butterfly Ball for the Cauldwell Children’s Charity, the 49-year-old father of four spoke candidly about his struggles as a parent to teenagers.
Princess, his 17-year-old son Junior, and his wife, Emily MacDonagh, accompanied him to the London charity event.
Red-Carpet Interview Peter, who had declared this would be the “first and only time” Princess would be dolled up for an event, said he had no problem with his daughter attending the Pride of Britain Awards.
This is what he shared with The Sun: “It’s challenging because of how tough a parent you are, but you learn to relax your grip with time.
You must be careful not to give too much too soon.
Pete, a father of three teenagers, conceded, though, that he was getting “less strict” as time passed.

Princess, whose brother allegedly stormed off the set of a music video, retaliated against the fans who had encouraged her to tone down the number of cosmetics she wore.
Princess uploaded a picture of herself to Instagram with the words “Aunt Sophie Price’s wedding” and a red love emoji.
Many people were pleased with the success of Katie and Peter’s daughter, while others were disturbed by the drastic changes that Princess underwent.
To which a commenter responded, “You don’t need the cosmetics Princess you are lovely without it!”
Another member of the group chimed in: “Princess, please remove all that makeup. It’s unnecessary since you look good without it. Causes you to appear older than you actually are.”
Another voice said, “You don’t need all that makeup love, you’re already gorgeous the way you are.”
In a retaliatory note, Princess wrote: “Everyone’s opinions on cosmetics What happened was a wedding. Nonetheless, I value the amiability of the locals “.
While paying respect to Princess on her birthday last month, Peter delivered a stern warning.
Peter shared a video on Instagram in which he compiled images of his daughter taken at various ages.
Along with the collection, he included the following text in the post: “My sweet, sensitive, moody, and caring daughter turns 15 today. Our house is much more vibrant because of you. All of us here adore you.”
When he was done, he said, “You’re lovely on the inside and out; never forget that.” Finally, he wrote this: “It’s your birthday, but you can’t go to Love Island. Sending my love to dad.”
Peter later said that he does not watch Love Island at home. As he emphasized, “I have no idea what Love Island means. Those are two terms that I would never use together!
“Since she’s just 15, you can’t really hold anything against me. When a daughter turns eighteen, I may no longer have any control in her life.”
