Emily Andre speaks in defence of Emma Willis' son amid pink T-shirt furore

Emily Andre has spoken in defence of Emma Willis' son for 'breaking gender stereotypes'.

Earlier this month, the presenter, 44, was praised by fans for uploading a picture of Ace, eight, wearing a pink T-shirt and showcasing his long hair. 

Doctor Emily, 31, has commended the former Big Brother star and her child for 'normalising differences' and stressed the importance of 'letting kids do whatever they enjoy'.

The wife of singer Peter Andre said in her OK! column: 'I really loved the picture and I think it's great that she's normalising differences and the way that kids feel about their genders.

'Try to let your kids do what makes them happy, and if that is wearing pink and having longer hair then let them do it.'

The healthcare professional went on to recall a time when she told her daughter Millie, six, about how 'lucky we are to live in a much more accepting society compared to the past' as they watched The Greatest Showman.
