Alex Reid - the new husband of Katie Price - has no plans to adopt Peter Andre's children, Junior, four, and Princess Tiaamii, two, because he doesn't want to take anything ''away from him''.
Alex Reid doesn't want to adopt Peter Andre's children.
The 34-year-old cage-fighter - who recently married Peter's ex-wife Katie Price in a Las Vegas ceremony - feels as though he has a strong bond with the singer's kids, Junior, four, and Princess Tiaamii, two, but recognises that Peter is their father.
Speaking to British TV talk show host Alan Carr, Alex said: "Peter's a great dad, I don't want to take anything away from him so why not all sit round a table. I love those kids, but I don't want to be their dad."
Peter broke down during a recent television interview when it was suggested Alex may try to formally adopt his children, mirroring Peter's rejected plans to adopt seven-year-old Harvey - Katie's son from her relationship with soccer player Dwight Yorke.
Meanwhile, Peter has suggested glamour model Katie was a bossy wife.
Playing a guess the celebrity game on upcoming UK TV show 'Chris Moyles' Quiz Night', 36-year-old Peter said: "This person is a dominatrix. Imagine living with a woman like that? Someone so bossy. I don't have to imagine that any more."
He also joked Katie would not be as satisfied in bed with Alex as she was with him.
He quipped: "Once you've had Greek, you've hit your peak."
Katie recently insisted she and Alex will be equals in their marriage.
She said: "I want to buy a house with Alex. I want it all to be equal - his money, my money, completely split down the line.
"Whatever work we do together, it's not going to be, 'I take my half, he take his.' We're putting it all in a joint account and that's how a marriage really should be."
