PETER Andre has shared his secret family connection to fellow celeb Victoria Beckham – before both of them hit the big time.
The Mysterious Girl hitmaker revealed that his mum used to be pen pals with the Spice Girls singer’s mum during their early fame days.
Pete, 49, opened up in a magazine column about how his mum Thea, 86, used to write to Posh Spice’s mum Jackie Adams in the 1990s.
The two proud mums would send each other news and magazine clippings of each other’s child whenever they spotted them.
With Pete’s mum living in Australia, and Victoria, 48, and Jackie in the UK – the two friends would mail over magazines they each couldn’t get hold of in their native countries.
He told OK! magazine: “Back in the 90s, Victoria Beckham’s mum used to send my mum stories from magazines when I was in the UK.
“My mum would send Jackie stories about the Spice Girls in Australian magazines. How crazy is that?”
It comes after Pete revealed that he plans to move his family to Australia amid his mum Thea’s ongoing health struggle.
The father-of-four said he will relocate “for as long as possible” after he finishes his work commitments with Grease the Musical.
Peter – who is currently starring in as Teen Angel in the musical – said he’s finding the move tricky due to his kids’ school arrangements.

The popstar shares Junior, 17, and Princess, 15, with ex-wife Katie Price and Amelia, eight, and Theo, five, with wife Emily MacDonagh.
“If it all goes to plan, it’ll be December and we’ll all be going to Oz as a family,” Peter said in his New magazine column.
“We want to get out there as soon as we can and stay for as long as possible, but it’s tricky with the kids’ school.”
He added: “They have different timings, which makes it complicated.”
This month, Peter opened up about his beloved mum Thea’s health struggles after celebrating his parents’ 67th wedding anniversary.
Peter is very close to his mum and dad, Savvas, and recently joined them in Cyprus as the family holidayed together.
Pete, who also travelled to Australia to see his parents earlier in the year, is savouring every moment he has with them, but said it’s sad to watch age take its toll.
He said: “My parents celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary last week. 67 years! It’s pretty amazing.
“Mum’s struggling at the moment, though. She’s not doing great. She’s suffering a bit and declining.
“I was with her a few months ago. We’ve just got to be with her as much as possible. It’s just age. She’s got all sorts of things going on now.”
Pete added: “I always pray for your health, both of you. I also pray that I can be even half the parent to my children that you both are to me.”
