Emily MacDonagh scared about giving coronavirus to her kids


Emily MacDonagh is scared about giving coronavirus to her and Peter Andre's children.

The NHS doctor is on the front line fighting the virus pandemic - which causes severe breathing difficulties in some patients - and she is worried she will pass it on to her young kids, Amelia, six, and Theodore, three.

She wrote in OK! magazine: "If I wasn't working for the NHS then I would only be leaving my house if it was absolutely necessary. Of course I'm worried that I could potentially bring it home to the kids, but I'm trying to be sensible and washing my hands and changing out of my clothes straight away before having a shower. I'm also not going too near them where possible, but it's a challenging time."

Peter - who also has Junior, 14, and Princess, 12, with his ex-wife Katie Price - also previously admitted he worries about his children but is fully supportive of the great work Emily and her colleagues are doing for people across the country.

He shared recently: "Here's the thing, she obviously doesn't tell me a lot of stuff because of confidentiality. But obviously because she's now exposed to the virus quite a lot, at the moment, in the last few days, it means right now we are having to be in separate rooms. I am the one who has to have the kids as well and I'm terrified they will get it."

Only last week, Peter made a public appreciation post for his wife Emily and her NHS colleagues and all those helping during the crisis on Instagram.

He captioned his post on the photo-sharing platform: "We thank our nhs staff, teachers, carers, anyone in any position that is helping with the current crisis. Thank you @nhswebsite @piersmorgan @lorrainekellysmith @itv @gmb (sic)"
