PETER Andre has taken a brutal swipe at his ex-wife Katie Price as he praised his "naturally beautiful" children Junior and Princess.
The proud father-of-four took to his latest magazine column to gush over his teenagers as they posed for a family photo at an event.
Pete, 49, shares his two eldest children Junior, 17, and Princess, 15, with his ex wife Katie, 44 – who he split from in 2009.
He opened up about a recent experience where his kids couldn't believe that he "hadn't edited" a photograph of them both.
The proud dad joked that the teens were shocked at the photo as he gushed over them as "looking amazing naturally".
"I recently shared a picture of Princess and Junior," he wrote in New! magazine. "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."
He added: "I could never say photos shouldn't be touched up… but it's good for people to believe they look great the way they are."
It's not the first time that Pete has made it clear he prefers his teenager children to have a more natural look, especially daughter Princess – who often wears make-up.
Earlier this year he said about make-up: "When it comes to things like that, every parent will be different.

"Although Princess enjoys make-up, I'm still funny about her posting pictures wearing it as I think she's a natural beauty. But as I've always said, it doesn't mean I'm right."
Recently, Princess was seen looking just like her mum Katie as she shared a snap of herself having her brows and lashes done.
She headed to a salon that is regularly visited by her mum Katie.
Princess has started doing bits of influencing work in recent months but has been subjected to cruel trolls accusing her of editing her snaps.
She recently hit back saying: "For the people commenting about the photo apparently being edited you can quite clearly see that it’s my hair and not the tiles."
And her dad Pete quickly backed her, writing: "Sweetheart don’t get into the habit of worrying about what people say. Be you’re beautiful self and enjoy life."
Dad-of-four Pete wrote about the incident in his new! Magazine column, explaining: "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," the reality TV star added. "Just be your beautiful self and enjoy life."
The concerned dad added: "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."
