Peter Andre screamed in agony as he experienced the pain of child birth through a simulator on the TV show Loose Women.

The singer explained he took on the challenge so he can “help men understand what it feels like to give birth”.

He added: “I understand a lot more of what you guys go through and I never want to go through that again.

“I want to be a better birthing partner for my wife Emily who is expecting our second child.”

Peter and his wife Emily MacDonagh are already parents to daughter Amelia, two, and are currently expecting their second child together.

Peter was hooked up to the machine, at a clinic in Amsterdam called ‘The Birth Hotel’, that replicates labour contractions, using electrical currents through electrodes that are placed on his stomach.

However, he couldn’t hide his shock when the instructor explained the levels of pain he’s about to go through.


He said: “This is a nightmare for me because if I don’t go through with it, I’m never going to hear the end of it from my wife.”

The operator jokingly responded: “That’s a good motivator!”

As the experiment kicked off, Pete writhed in pain as the pain built up in stages.

After stage one, Pete started shouting expletives as he struggled to cope but carried on until the end after his wife Emily sent him an encouraging message telling him to “take it like a man”.

Pete said: “It is nothing you’d ever expect. It’s absolutely horrific! Nothing in the world prepared me for that…. they say that guys can relate to it if you’ve had kidney stones and I’ve had kidney stones and let me tell you, I would have another twenty kidney stones rather than go through that again! That was hell.”

And added that he’ll be more understanding of what Emily goes through this time around.

He said: “I’m going to very different this time, I’ll know what she’s going through.”

  • Lol, that’s hilarious !


  • I don’t think you could ever simulate a real life labour. I had no idea of the pain until I went through labour twice. Twice was enough!


  • I would love to see my husband go through it even better I would pay to see my kid’s father go through it then he might stop impregnating every girl he meets!


  • We would be childless if it was up to my partner to be pregnant and go thru labour. The human population would disappear if childbirth was up to men. And Pete didn’t even do the complete delivery!


  • I know my partner would not be able to handle the pain of childbirth.


  • I always love watching these videos. So good.


  • He is a brave man,at least he has an idea of what Emily will go through!
