Peter Andre has admitted he finds it hard to see his elderly mother “suffer and decay” as age takes its toll.
The singer, 49, said he was “sad” his mother Thea, 86, is “struggling” as she gets older now that her health is deteriorating.
The TV personality explained he hopes to spend “as much time as possible” with his mum and dad Savvas, 89, and enjoy every moment with his relatives.
‘Mom’s struggling at the moment’: Peter Andre has admitted it’s hard for him to see his elderly mum ‘suffer and decay’ as age takes its toll
The Mysterious Girl hitmaker recently holidayed in Cyprus with his parents, having previously traveled to Australia to spend time with them.
He explained in his new! Magazine column: “My parents celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary last week. 67 years! It’s pretty amazing. Dad will be 90 next year and mom 86.
“Mum is struggling at the moment. She is not feeling well. She suffers a little and loses weight. It’s sad when they’ve been together for so long that age overwhelms them.
“I was with her a few months ago. We just need to be with her as much as possible. It’s just age. She’s got all sorts of things going on now.’

Last week on his Instagram account, Peter said he was “sad that age is taking its toll” as he shared a sweet snap of himself with them.
He wrote: “Happy 67th wedding anniversary mom and dad. I love you both with all my heart. I feel happy and sad to post this.
Happy of course they have reached 67 years of marriage together but sad that age is taking its toll and especially the mother is really struggling.
“I always pray for your health, both of you. I also pray that I can be even half the parent to my children that you two are to me.’

Peter lives with his children Junior, 17, and Princess, 15, from his first marriage to Katie Price and wife Emily, and their children, Amelia, 8, and Theo, 5.
Last month the pop star celebrated 30 years in the show business industry and was presented with a cake this morning to mark the milestone.
The cake featured a shirtless model of Peter channeling his ‘Mysterious Girl’ music video, while the ripped model looked like he was dancing in the water.
After receiving the cake as a gift, Peter couldn’t help but comment on the fondant version of himself, saying: “This is amazing! Look at those abs!’
When asked by hosts Josie Gibson and Craig Doyle if he still had his famous abs, Peter joked that they’re “hibernating.”
‘They’re hibernating, they’re here. They’re still kind of there,” Peter said of his six-pack.
Josie and Craig then asked if they could feel his stomach to see if his abs were still there.
After hilariously feeling Peter’s stomach, Josie declared: “I can confirm they’re still there, they’re still there!”
