Nicky Byrne made his name in Westlife and now he's making waves on air - but for him, it's all about family.

The singer turned presenter is father to twins Rocco and Jay (seven) and  baby daughter Gia (four months) with his wife of 11 years, Georgina.

But his weekends are just for his wife and children.

"This week has been really hectic for me. I had a lovely Father's Day for Sunday, I got a lie-in and loads of presents and we went for lunch. Gia's doing great and so are the twins - they love listening to the show.

"It was the 2fm summer schedule launch earlier this week and I'll probably play some soccer with the boys this weekend," he wrote in today's Celebrity Diary with The Herald.

Byrne also spoke of the abuse he receives on Twitter, but thankfully, developed a thick skin to criticism during his time with the chart-topping boyband.

"Twitter's an amazing thing but you've got to put with the good and the bad. I've got quite a thick skin so I can laugh off most of it," he added.

"The off time, someone will get up your nose and you'll want to reply and then you'll see they've got maybe 100 followers. If I re-tweet them and answer back, I'm only giving them a platform to this."
