Default Is Barney a pied budgie?

Hi im new to this forum as of today, so please bare with me haha!
I have 2 budgies Barney and Stella.
Barney is of course a typic male bobbing his head and doing his mating dance to Stella and what ever else he gets his claws on! I.e the mineral block :/
Anyway, the reason im posting is because Barneys cere is not blue like a normal male budgie. His cere is pink and has been pink since I got him. Every now and then it does get a purple trim around the outside but that then goes back to pink. He is a young adult not a baby anymore.
I have always thought his beak and cere is a lot more wider than Stellas.
I have been doing alot of research and i am now starting to think he is a pied budgie. However I do not know anything about pied budgies. Could some one please tell me if I am right? X

Would love to see a picture from the side to check out any wing markings.

I have a female too named stella she is all white with markings on her back.
Would you say she is a recessive pied too?
The picture on the left of her back was taken when she was a baby. But she is still exactly the same.
Thanks for taking time to look at my babies
