Peter Andre thinks he has met the person he is ''supposed'' to marry.
The hunk has largely been single since the end of his marriage to Katie Price - with who he raises stepson Harvey, 10, son Junior, six, and daughter Princess Tiaamii, four - in 2009, but is now overcoming his fear of commitment, and wonders if the person he could be happy with forever is closer to home than he realises.
He said: ''I admit that I had a commitment phobia after Katie but I think I've started to overcome it. I mean, maybe I've met the person I'm supposed to marry. Maybe I've met the girl I'm going to be with. Sometimes the person you're meant to marry is right under your nose but you don't realise it.
''I've had friends who've said they were searching and searching for years and it ended up being one of their best friends, so who knows?''
However, Peter, 39, is starting to worry about whether he will end up alone forever, although he has been on a few dates, and had a brief relationship with model Elen Rivas.
He told Now magazine: ''The idea of spending the rest of my life alone is a horrible thing, especially in old age, that's one of my fears. I don't have a fear of dating. I've been doing it quite a bit over the last two years and have been on lots of different dates.''
