Peter Andre played his wedding song to his wife Emily while she was having a Caesarean section.
The ‘Mysterious Girl’ hitmaker was devastated his doctor spouse wasn’t able to give birth to their second child – a baby boy named Theodore – naturally because the little one was breech and losing weight, but he tried to ease her by blasting their special track while she was on the operating table.
He explained: "I played out wedding song ‘Songbird’ by Eva Cassidy but it started us all of blubbing before we’d even started."
Emily added: "I was like: ‘Guys, we have to put something else on, I’m trying to be brave here! The last thing I need is to burst into tears."
Peter concluded: "So I put on ‘Celebration’ by Kool & The Gang’."
The 43-year-old singer – who already has two-year-old daughter Amelia with Emily and Junior, 11, and Princess, nine, with his ex-wife Katie Price – was thrilled when he found his little one was a boy.
He said: "I was praying for a boy because I had a girl last time. Being a doctor, I knew Emily secretly knew but I had no idea. Although I suspected it was a boy because we went for a scan when we were in Cyprus and the doctor said to me: ‘What would make you happy’ and when I said a boy, he said: ‘Ah, it’s good to see everyone happy."
And Peter struggled to hold back the tears when he first locked eyes on his beautiful blue-eyed boy.
He added to OK! Magazine: "I got emotional seeing my baby for the first time, but I also saw Ems going through so much trauma. I had the greatest gift in the world but Ems had just been through hell!"
