Three weeks after Peter Andre and his fiancée Emily MacDonagh welcomed a baby girl, they are yet to decide on their daughter’s name. The couple have managed to narrow it down to four traditional monikers though, as proud dad Peter revealed to Jonathan Ross.
“We have four names. Maybe you can help me out actually,” Pete said to the chat show host. “We had Rose. I love Rose because it’s English and beautiful.
“Ameila, beautiful name. Elizabeth. Alexandra. So these are the four names that we’ve been throwing around.
“I love them because they are English and they are beautiful.”
Peter, 40, continued, “The baby came three weeks early. Then we looked at each other and I said, ‘We haven’t got a name,’ so we started calling her Rose, but she wasn’t a Rose.
“It didn’t click. So then we went backwards and forwards. Then three days ago she (Emily) throws another spanner in the works and says, ‘What about Poppy’ Poppy is a nice name.
“Then she threw in Isabella and I thought that’s a nice name. So we’re sort of in a bit of a pickle here.”
“I’ve had two children, biological children, and this is her (Emily’s) first, so I want her to be happy,” Peter said. “My favourite is Ameila. I love that name but I want her to be happy. I love that name.”
Jonathan then asked Pete when he would be tying the knot with Emily, 24.
“I said about two years,” the singer replied. “I believe in the institution of marriage but there’s so many people who have been together with their partners twenty, thirty years and never got married and that’s fine, that’s perfect.
“In my case, I want to get married eventually, but I’m in no rush. What I wanted was the engagement. It’s so important for me. She’s got to finish her degree at the end of this year, then she’ll be a fully qualified doctor. Let her do her F1, then we’ll get married and then we’ll have another baby.
“I want to do a traditional English wedding, to the finest detail,” he revealed. “Then I want to go to Cyprus and we want to smash plates.”
