Peter Andre shared a gallery of wholesome family photos during his holiday to Australia to visit his mother and father who are both in declining health.
The 39-year-old father brought his wife Emily and children Junior, 17, and Princess, 15 – who he shares with ex Katie Price – down under and uploaded pictures of the group with his mother to Instagram.
While preparing for the long journey to his home country, he shared with fans his fears over his mother Thea, 86, and father Savvas, 79, and their current health.
One of the photos captured Thea smiling beside her son and his wife as they grabbed a spot of dinner while another slide showed Princess posing alongside her musician dad.
He captioned the gallery ‘Making memories’ and continued to update his 1.8million followers on his daily activities during his Australian adventure.
The family affair came after the star opened up about his concerns for his elderly parents and revealed he wanted to try and make the trip more often as they grow in age.

Peter moved to Australia at the age of six and made the journey back over in the hopes of being able to spend more quality time with his wife and Thea and Savvas.
The Mysterious Girl hitmaker explained that Christmas was an ‘anxious’ time where his parents were concerned.
‘For me, it’s about seeing my mum and dad and the kids and Emily seeing them. That’s what it’s about, they’re getting very old now and it’s always an anxious time of year,’ the celebrity told MailOnline.
‘I went to Australia earlier this year, I’m glad to be spending more time there because of my mum now. So, I try and go 3 or 4 times of year if I can now.’

This wasn’t the first time the father-of-four expressed his worries over the distance between himself and his ageing parents.
Last Septemebr he wrote candidly about his feelings in his new! magazine column: ‘My parents celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary last week. 67 years! It’s pretty amazing.
‘Dad’s going to be 90 next year and mum’s 86.
‘Mum’s struggling at the moment, though. She’s not doing great. She’s suffering a bit and declining. It’s sad when they’ve been together so long that age is getting on top of them.
‘I was with her a few months ago. We’ve just got to be with her as much as possible. It’s just age. She’s got all sorts of things going on now.’
