Peter Andre has labelled his doting wife Emily as his hero.

The Mysterious Girl singer, 47, has been enjoying some time at home with Emily, 30, during the hours she is not fighting the coronavirus on the frontline.

Opening up about the pride he holds for his other half, Peter took to Instagram.

Alongside a candid shot of the pair posing on the front cover of OK! Magazine, the TV star insisted that he couldn't be any prouder of his 'hero' wife.

Peter penned: "A few weeks ago when we did this shoot little did we know how things would change.

"Since then, doing the interview over the phone things were certainly different.

The proud father continued as he praised and thanked 'every single' NHS staff member, as well as key workers who are being kept busy keeping the UK running as usual.

He added: "Every NHS worker, not just Emily, every Carer, teacher, in fact every single key worker deserves so much praise".

Pete's sweet admission comes after he shared his worries that Emily would contract the coronavirus.

The singer revealed that he's not been sleeping as he fears his wife of five years, who is a working doctor, will catch the deadly bug while on the frontline.

He has been busy looking after the children at home while Emily and four of her family members are working to fight the pandemic.

Speaking to The Sun, Peter admitted: "Five out of seven of her family work in the NHS right now. I am so worried about the whole family - I worry about Emily's mum and dad because they work right in the midst of this.

"I worry about my mum and dad because they're in their late 80s and in Australia, in the high risk group. It's really scary. It's like a world war but without the violence of the war - it's a war without the guns."

Pete added: "Of course I've had sleepless nights, of course I worry about Emily, I worry about the kids."

Emily previously admitted her own fears that she'd pass the bug on to her children

Emily has been having minimal contact with their children Amelia, six, and Theo, three, as well as Peter's kids with Katie Price, Junior, 14, and Princess, 12.

Emily previously admitted her own fears that she'd pass the bug on to her children.

She wrote in OK magazine : "If I wasn't working for the NHS then I would only be leaving my house if it was absolutely necessary.

"Of course I'm worried that I could potentially bring it home to the kids, but I'm trying to be sensible and washing my hands and changing out of my clothes straight away before having a shower.

"I'm also not going too near them where possible, but it's a challenging time."
