Peter Andre is reportedly planning to propose to his girlfriend
The 39-year-old reality TV star has only been dating Emily MacDonagh - who is 16 years his junior - for five months, but he believes he is destined to be with the 23-year-old medical student for life and is being encouraged by his kids Junior, seven, and five-year-old Princess Tiaamii to pop the question.
A source told the new issue of heat magazine: "Pete knows it`s quick, but he doesn`t want to wait around any longer. It`s true love and he worships Emily; he honestly believes that fate brought them together ... He`s already spoken to Emily`s dad about it. He wanted to reassure him he would never stop her pursuing her medical career ... He knows she`s the real deal and he hopes she wants to spend her life with him, too."
Pete`s first wedding to ex-wife Katie Price in 2005 was an extravagant affair - which featured a horse-drawn carriage - and he thinks Emily would appreciate a more modest and traditional wedding without a celebrity guest list.
The source added: "Pete really wants to get a ring on Emily`s finger and is happy to have a long engagement if that`s what she wants. But the key is he doesn`t want a wedding like his last one. Looking back, he realises how tacky his wedding to Katie was ... He`s determined this will be Emily`s day - he treats her like she`s a queen."
