The proud dad, 49, gifted his son a used Audi A1 for his special day, with both father and son sharing snaps of it online.
Writing in his column for OK! magazine, the Mysterious Girl singer wrote: “I may have spoilt him with an Audi A1, which is the one he really wanted, but it wasn’t brand-new – so it wasn’t exactly what he wanted!
“I don’t think a new car would set the right example. He’s started lessons and I’m sure it won’t be long until he’s on the road.”
Junior turned 17 earlier this month and took to Instagram to share snaps of his new whip as well as the release date of his song, Slide.

“Couldn’t be more grateful right now,” he said at the time. “I’m releasing my debut single “SLIDE” this Friday 17th June and my dad just got me the car of my dreams.”
Peter couldn’t help but gush over his son in the comments and wrote: “My son. So proud in every way. You deserve all of it. So happy you love your present.”
The father-of-four also shared a clip of Junior and Princess – who he shares with Katie Price – sitting in the car.
“Big thanks to @beany_man_ipswich_alloys for getting the wheels how he liked it in record time. I was so scared I wasn’t gonna have everything ready for him.

“Love you son (not you Beany, I mean junior). Love you too though mate.”
Peter has been extra proud in recent weeks after his son hit Number One on the charts with his debut single.
Junior released Slide on June 17 and shifted more singles than Harry Styles and Lady Gaga.
He shared snapshots of the iTunes chart earlier on Friday, as Junior’s track began rising up the charts.
“What a start. Wow son,” Peter wrote.
“Let’s get him to number 1! Thanks everyone that’s downloading this for him,” he later added.
Slide shot to the top of the charts within hours of being released, marking an incredible achievement by the teenage star, who has been teasing his music on TikTok for weeks.
