KATIE Price has praised her ex Peter Andre 12 years after their split.

In a rare tribute to her first husband, the 43-year-old star nodded to his success in the music industry as their son Junior follows in his footsteps.

Katie and Peter beamed with pride as their 16-year-old signed a record deal last month.

"He'll be a little star," Katie told New Magazine.

"He's always been good at singing.

"His dad [Peter Andre] is the singer even though I still try, but his dad knows more in that area than me.

"And Princess does all her bits with me. Watch this space with Princess because you don't know what's coming up with her!"

 Mysterious Girl singer, 48, helped seal the huge deal Junior joined him on stage in front of thousands of fans at the Fantastia festival in Maldon, Essex.

Enthusiastic vocalist Katie once worked on music with her ex Peter when they released a cover of A Whole New World back in 2006.

The single was released as part of Katie and Peter's duet album.

The album, titled A Whole New World, was released on 27 November 2006 with all proceeds going to their chosen charities affiliated with the many health conditions of Katie's eldest son Harvey.

The album debuted at #20 in the UK album chart and achieved platinum status.

Since then, Katie, who previously attempted to represent the UK at Eurovision in 2005, has desperately tried to relaunch her pop career.

Last month she collaborated with Peter to nail down the details of Junior's first music contract.

In an admirable display of co-parenting, the stars discussed the nitty gritty legalities before the teen put pen to paper for the exciting deal.

Mum of five Katie gushed: "I am so excited and no words can describe how proud I am of my son @officialjunior_andre signing his very well deserved record deal @rebelrecs @columbiauk.

"From a young age I knew he would be a star it wasn’t long ago me Junior his dad and me were going through his contract to make sure everything is in place a right for him.

"Now the future is exciting watch the space. I love you Junior," rounding off with two Emoji love hearts.
