Brian McFadden is already a father of two, but he’s still hoping to expand his brood with new wife, Irish model Vogue Williams. The former Westlife singer, who already has two children Molly,12, and Lilly-Sue,10, from his marriage to Kerry Katona, revealed that he’s hoping for a son – but don’t hold your breath for his arrival.

When asked if we’ll be hearing the pitter patter of little McFadden feet, he replied: “I've got four pitter patter feet already, but I would like to have a son one day but not anytime soon.”

Brian and Vogue wed in Florence in September after a whirlwind romance, and are now based in Australia where Vogue has a lucrative DJ career. His 27-year-old wife previously opened up about being a stepmother. “I have a stepdad myself so I learned from him. I’m a stepmother but we’re more like friends.'"

And now that Brian’s role as a judge on cancelled show Australia’s Got Talent is defunc t, he’s putting his energies back into his first love: music. He’s currently touring with Ronan Keating and finished his fourth album, The Irish Connection, featuring duets with Keating and Sinead O’Connor.

As for his relationship with Katona, who just opened up about feeling like a “failure as a mother and as a wife” when they split in 2004, he remained uncharacteristically diplomatic."She's the mother of my children so it's all fine", insists Brian. "We just carry on with our own lives. My relationship with the kids is the most important thing."

Now that he’s putting his energy into music, will he be collaborating with any of his former Westlife bandmates? "I haven't seen them in a couple of years now but we tweet each other the odd time and text I'm sure that now that I'm back in London we'll get to see each other more often but no, not at present. They've only just broken up anyway!"
