Peter Andre has revealed he had to convince his teenage children that they’re “naturally beautiful”.
The dad-of-four says his comments came after he shared a snap of Princess, 15, and Junior, 17, on his Instagram and the siblings thought he had edited and filtered the image.
Writing exclusively in his column, the singer said: “I recently shared a picture of Princess and Junior at the Tulleys Shocktober Fest launch night.
“They both said they loved the photo and asked me what I’d done to it to make it look like that!
“I had to explain to them I hadn’t edited it in any way. I almost had to convince them they just look amazing and are naturally beautiful children. It was quite sweet actually.”
Pete continued: “It got me thinking that sadly a lot of people don’t realise how beautiful they are.
“Now I could never say photos shouldn’t be touched up, because even in the 90s when we started out, record covers, calendars and posters of celebrities were given touch-ups, as well as fashion magazines and posters.
“But it’s good for people to believe they look great the way they are.”
The star recently defended his eldest daughter after trolls said that the 15 year old had edited one of her pictures on Instagram.
Princess shared a snap of herself and a friend on a family holiday as they posed in a shoe store.
In the photo Princess can be seen in a black maxi dress and wearing her hair in its natural curls.
But some of Princess’ followers suggested that the image had been edited after a tile line behind Princess appeared to be distorted.
Princess commented on her own post, correcting any assumptions that the image had been tampered with, as she confirmed the apparently squiggly tile line was in fact one of her own curly hairs hanging down.
She wrote: "For the people commenting about the photo apparently being edited you can quite clearly see that it’s my hair and not the tiles," as she added a number of crying-laughing emojis.
It appears that some comments that Princess was referring to have since been deleted.
And Pete had some sound advice for his daughter – and a thinly veiled swipe at her haters – as he commented: "Sweetheart don’t get into the habit of worrying about what people say. Be you’re beautiful self and enjoy life."
The actor also told us the advice he has given his daughter and admitted that he doesn’t want her to get into a “downward spiral” with trolls.
He said: “I’ve always told Princess that when she puts things on social media it’s best to always either turn the comments off or block or ignore anybody who is negative.
“But when I saw someone accusing her of editing one of her pictures, and she replied, my comment was basically not to get into the habit of worrying about what people say.
"And this applies to everyone. Just be your beautiful self and enjoy life.
“I just don’t want her to get into the habit of worrying about trolls, because if you do it can be a downward spiral.”
