Peter Andre has announced he and fiancée Emily MacDonagh have named their baby daughter Amelia.

The 'Behind Closed Doors' hitmaker - who also has two children Junior, eight, and Princess Tiaamii, six, with ex-wife Katie Price - and fiancée Emily MacDonagh welcomed their first child into the world last month but had struggled to pick a moniker for the little girl.

After consulting with his older kids, the couple were able to come to a decision.

He wrote on Twitter today: "Ok FINALLY we have a name for our beaut of a baby girl. Ems, J , P and I have decided on Amelia :):):) So lovely fans, before you read it anywhere else, here it is. Love ya :) (sic)"

Peter revealed at the weekend he and Emily had a shortlist of classic English names they were choosing from, and he admitted at the time Amelia was his preference.

He said: "We have four names. Maybe you can help me out actually.

"We had Rose. I love Rose because it's English and beautiful.

"Amelia, beautiful name. Elizabeth. Alexandra. So these are the four names that we've been throwing around.

"I love them because they are English and they are beautiful.

"Then three days ago Emily throws another spanner in the works and says, 'What about Poppy?' Poppy is a nice name. Then she threw in Isabella and I thought that's a nice name. So we're sort of in a bit of a pickle here."

However, the 40-year-old star also admitted he was planning to let medical student Emily make the final decision.

He said: "I've had two children, biological children, and this is her first, so I want her to be happy. My favourite is Amelia. I love that name but I want her to be happy. I love that name."
