Brian McFadden's daughter Molly (15) moving to Ireland to live with his parents
Brian McFadden's daughter with ex-wife Kerry Katona will be moving to Ireland to live with his parents.
The 15-year-old is no stranger to Irish shores having regularly visited the McFadden family home in Artane, north Dublin over the years, but she will be settling down here shortly and starting school during the next school term in September.
The former Westlife singer splits his time between Dublin and London, but spends most of his time in the UK these days, where his daughters - Molly and Lilly Sue (14) - both live with Katona.
"My oldest is going to school in Dublin in September so she's probably going to live with my mum and dad," he told OK! Magazine.
He previously lived in Australia for eight years with ex-fiancée Delta Goodrem and later with ex-wife Vogue Williams and moved back to the UK in 2013, saying at the time he was feeling like I was missing all the growing up" of his daughters.
But Molly will be settling with his parents Mairead and Brendan in a matter of months, as he explained: "I think it'll be easier for Molly to concentrate on her exams there. It's going to make things harder for us all to be together but you have to make sacrifices."
McFadden and Katona were married for four years before splitting in 2006. The girls have both appeared with their mother on television recently, most notably an appearance on ITV's Loose Women where they discussed their mother's battle with bipolar disorder last year.
Molly, who is the eldest of Kerry's four children, said she had to "grow up quickly" due to her mother's illness.
"She wants to do everything all at the same time. She goes crazy but in a good way," she said.
"It's a lot easier to talk about it now were older as we're independent. I'll get up in the morning and make the kids breakfast, because either mum is busy or she having a bad day."
Meanwhile, McFadden's candid interview with the glossy magazine, accompanied by a spread with new girlfriend Danielle Parkinson, a PE teacher from Manchester, he said it was "pointless" to remain in contact with ex Vogue.
"It's very difficult to remain friends unless you've got children. I think it's pointless as it's going to get in the way of you having a future with other people," he explained.
