  • Peter Andre has waded in on the latest debate in the parenting community – fake tattoo sleeves for babies.

    The father-of-three appeared on Good Morning Britain with hosts Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan to discuss the controversial topic.

    Peter revealed that he supports parents who want their tots to wear the sleeves and thinks that people who criticize the accessories need to ‘take a chill pill.’

    The Mysterious Girl singer said, ‘Apparently some people are not happy about them but I think they should take a chill pill. They’re just a bit of fun and aren’t offending anyone.’

    He also revealed that his son Junior, 10, with ex-wife and glamour model Katie Price, wears fake tattoo stickers all the time.

    Peter, who is now married to medical student Emily MacDonagh, 26, explained; ‘Junior likes to wear those fake tattoo stickers sometimes and I see no harm in it.’

    But Peter, who has lots of tattoos himself, said that he used to wear the fake stickers as a child and doesn’t see the problem.

    Just in case you’re still wondering what all the fuss is about, the latest trend in kid’s clothing is from a company in North Dakota, USA.

    Tera started producing tattoo sleeves for babies and toddlers, drawn with hearts, flames, skulls and barbed wire and parents can custom-design their own with slogans such as ‘I love mum’ and ‘born to be wild’.

    Designed by a mum-of-four girls, the company Tera produced the line of items aptly named TotTude.

    The inspiration for the collection was the lack of fun clothing options available to parents.

    Tera told the Mail Online: ‘Having been a professional children’s photographer for 10 years, I’ve seen hundreds of kids come to my studio.

    ‘While the kids are always fun and adorable, something their clothes are boring and the same old thing over and over again. I simply wanted rockin’ clothes, and I could never find them. So I decided to make my own.’
