Family guy: Peter Andre takes Princess Tiaamiii, left, Junior, centre, and Harvey, right, out to lunch
He's never made any secret of his love of being a father - so following his split from Elen Rivas, spending some quality time with his children appears to be just the tonic Peter Andre needed.
Peter, 38, is on holiday Larnaca, Cyprus, where he has a house, with his two children and stepson - and couldn't hide his delight as he took them to lunch at local cafe Viale.
The Mysterious Girl star showed what a family man he was as he pulled faces and laughed along with his children Junior, five, and Princess Tiaamii, three, and Katie Price's son Harvey, eight, from her relationship with Dwight Yorke.

Peter Tweeted on his official account: 'In beautiful Cyprus with the three musketeers. J and T playing tennis and H in pool. Barbie tonight.
'Oh and I'm playing backgammon in between the three haha.'
Absent however at the lazy lunch were his film crew, who are also out there filming Peter for his new season of Peter Andre: The Next Chapter.
