Proud parents Katie Price and Peter Andre have celebrated their son Junior’s 16th birthday with sweet posts dedicated to the teen.
As their eldest child marks his landmark birthday, both have shared heartfelt messages for him online, sharing never-before-seen snaps of him growing up.
With both posting a collage of throwbacks, Junior is seen growing up through his parents’ eyes, starting from the first picture of him in Katie’s hospital room.
“16 years of pure Joy having you in my life,” Peter wrote. “I love who you have become. Kind, funny, talented but most of all loving and respectful. Happy birthday my son. I’m proud to be your dad. Love you.”

Katie quickly followed suit and wrote: “Junior – My absolute world! From the moment Junior was born he's been by my side, and now he has grown into a gorgeous little man and the world is his oyster.”
Throughout both their photo montages, Junior is seen playing with his brothers and sisters, posing in magazines with his mum, and celebrating Christmas.

Junior is the eldest of Peter’s four children, and the second eldest of Katie’s five children.
Peter went on to marry NHS doctor Emily MacDonagh, with whom he has Amelia, seven, and four-year-old Theodore.
Katie also has Harvey, 19; 13-year-old Princess, seven-year-old Jett, and Bunny, six.

Young Junior has previously expressed an interest in following in his parents’ footsteps into the showbiz world, having been on camera from a young age thanks to their various reality shows.
Last month, he shared an Instagram live getting upset that he had come down with Covid, suffering some brutal symptoms.

"The first few days, my head was the worst,” he said. "My head was banging so much. I dunno how I got symptoms, because I'm a child, I'm 15. But my head was banging, my body was aching, my throat was fine.
"And then all of a sudden my body's sort of stopped aching – it aches sometimes – my head still bangs but not as much but for some reason my throat is so sore."

"Yeah, I've got Covid. And for some reason I have, like, symptoms. Normally minors don't get symptoms. It's not severe… it's just annoying."
Thankfully, after his family quarantined as a result of his test, they are now all fine.
