WESTLIFE’S Kian Egan is “super excited” to become a first-time dad next month.
The popstar’s wife Jodi Albert is expecting their first baby on New Year’s Day and he said it will get 2012 off to the perfect start.
“Jodi is great, she’s blooming. She’s smiling from ear to ear. We’re very excited. Her sister just had a baby girl and she hasn’t been able to put her down and she just keeps going to me, ‘oh my God, can you believe we’re going to have one of these?’” he said.
“We’re just super excited now and we just can’t wait for it to be here. We have our names picked but obviously they’re a big secret. We feel ready to rock with it all.”
His other half was left reeling after her girlband, Wonderland, which he co-managed, were dropped by their record label last August. But Kian said it’s simply the nature of the tough music industry
“They did very well; they sold 70,000 records in the UK but the business is so cut-throat,” he said.
He and his three chart-topping bandmates Mark Feehily, Shane Filan and Nicky Byrne are now looking forward to their Farewell tour next year after making the decision to quit after 14 years together.
He told U magazine that it was a “massive decision” which was not taken lightly.
