Age difference irrelevant in love: Peter Andre

London: Singer Peter Andre, 39 says the age gap between him and his girlfriend, 22, is "irrelevant."

Andre is 17 years older than his lady love, medical student Emily MacDonagh. But he is enjoying dating her so much that he doesn`t even think about the age gap, reports

"I`m really, really, happy and even though it`s very early days with Ems, we`re just seeing how it goes. She`s a really beautiful girl and I`m loving spending time with her," said Andre.

"A lot has been made of the age gap between us but she turns 23 this week and we don`t even think about the age difference, it`s irrelevant," he added.
