Speaking to OK! magazine, about Pete's proposal Emily confessed it was a complete shock and left her in tears.

"He always said he'd like to do it before the baby was born and I just thought he'd do it after - I was happy, I didn't need a ring, but it was amazing," she explained.

Pete added: "She said: 'Are you serious?' and burst into tears - it was so emotional. We lay down in the nursery for ages because it was such a special room to us."

Peter, who already has two children with ex-wife Katie Price, announced Emily's surprise pregnancy last July, after they had been dating for a year.
