Peter Andre was overwhelmed with emotion when he surprised son Junior with a scooter for his sixteenth birthday.
In a video posted to the family's YouTube channel, Pete's mini-me eldest looked on in bewildered delight when he opened the front door to a shiny red two-wheeler.
Turning to his dad, 48, and stepmum Emily, 31, he beamed: "No way, you actually got me one.
"Look at his face, oh my gosh. Dad, thank you so much, I love you.
"I'm getting emotional guys. What the hell, how did you convince him? Wow."
Peter was visibly teary as Junior came over to give him a thank-you cuddle.

Peter Andre surprised Junior with a moped for his 16th birthday
Junior is the eldest of Pete's kids from his first marriage to Katie Price, and is big brother to Princess, 13.
Pete also has two children with Emily, Amelia, seven, and Theo, four.
The family's YouTube channel follows the adventure and antics of the Aussie singer and his relatives, and he later explained what it was about seeing Junior's reaction that got him right in the feels.
He said: "I got emotional because I'm a big softie."

"I’m scared of the moped as I’ve never ridden a motorbike, but Junior has assured me they can only go 30mph and can’t go on certain roads. So maybe I’m overthinking it.
"He could rebel, but then the difference is he wouldn’t be coming into my house!"
Pete later admitted that he is a "big softie"
But for Junior he is already excited about upgrading to four wheels.
He added: "I’ll be driving in a year. I cannot wait; that’s my dream right now. I can drive wherever I want."
Junior's incredible gift is a real U-turn for Pete.
Ten years ago the Mirror revealed that Katie had bought Junior a £1,200 mini-moto for his sixth birthday – and Pete wasn't impressed.
