The 43-year-old singer has revealed his spouse - who is carrying the couple's second child - has been kicking "the absolute s**t" out of him in bed because she can't control her over-active limbs.

Writing in his column for New! magazine about his sleepless nights, the dark-haired hunk - who already has two-year-old daughter Amelia with 27-year-old Emily - said: "I'm getting battered by the wife and her 'restless legs' in bed - she literally just kicks her legs out at me all night!"

"Thankfully, she hasn't caused any bruises but she does kick the absolute s**t out of without even realising she's doing it. I wouldn't have it any other way! Well, I would..."

And Peter - who also has son Junior, 11, and daughter Princess, nine, who he nicknames J and P from his previous marriage to Katie Price - thought Emily was going into labour earlier this month, but feels he is now "a lot more prepared" for when the time comes and Emily gives birth to his fourth child.

He shared: "A couple of weeks ago Emily had to go to hospital because she started having contractions. We were going out having dinner and I literally thought, 'You're going into labour.' Luckily, she wasn't, but she's still getting them and they're constant.

"This time around though I'm a lot more prepared for her going into labour - I even have my own baby bag ready."

And the couple have revealed they are trying to involve their brood in the pregnancy by asking them to think of possible names for their new addition.

He said: "We really want to involve the kids as much as possible so I've been asking, J, P and Mills what names they like. Fortunately, Mills hasn't suggested Peppa Pig! If we keep going we'll be up there with the Brady Bunch."
