Being parents

Ronan Keating reunited with his ex-wife Yvonne Connolly as they celebrated their daughter Missy’s 21st birthday. I think it’s nice when parents can work together and get on for the sake of their children.

If it was Molly or Lilly’s birthday party, I would feel more than comfortable doing something with them and their dad Brian.

The last time they saw me and Brian together was last March, when my auntie died. And that’s actually the first time Lilly has ever seen me and Brian in the same room since we split. If I’m being honest, me and Brian have never co-parented the kids. I’ve been the one to parent them. It’s just always been that way.

Time with the kids

We had a fabulous time in London for Heidi’s birthday. We still can’t stop talking about Dirty Dancing – the show was electric. I organised for the cast to meet Heidi at the end and she absolutely loved it. I think she fell in love with Johnny!

It’s been a busy week with the kids. DJ had a trip to the dentist. She had to have some fillings – God love her! For being such a brave girl, I took her to The Trafford Centre in Manchester and I bought her a Build-A-Bear.

Pet names

Ma rk Wright revealed on his Heart Radio show that he often calls his wife Michelle Keegan by the pet name “treacle pant”.

I don’t really have any names for Ryan, apart from k**bhead or d**khead! Haha – I’m only messing! I often just call him babe, or I’ll call him my little toy boy. Or should I say, man-child!

Molly's musical talent

My Molly posted a video of herself singing I Say A Little Prayer by Aretha Franklin on her Instagram account and I am so proud of her. She is absolutely unbelievable! Every time she sings she makes me cry.

She even taught herself to play the guitar. She has amazing talent. She currently goes to a drama school in London, so who knows what the future holds. But I know she’ll go far.

Cruz's cover causes controversy

Cruz Beckham has left people divided after he posed topless for i-D magazine’s cover. Some people branded it as double standards and argued that it wouldn’t happen if it was a 17-year-old girl.

I personally don’t see a problem with it whatsoever. I’ve been modelling since I was 16! He’s only in some shorts. It’s no different to him being pictured on the beach. I don’t understand the outrage. I think people need to get over themselves – he hasn’t done anything wrong.
