Una's joy as Ben jets to LA for birthday love-in

THEY have spent much of their marriage apart so Una Healy and Ben Foden are understandably still in honeymoon mode.

The Saturdays singer has been trying to break America with her bandmates for much of the four months since the pair married in Tipperary.

So the couple were thrilled to be back in each other's arms after the England rugby player decided to join his wife in Los Angeles for her 31st birthday.

Despite being accompanied by a film crew and their seven-month-old daughter Aoife, the couple's passion soon got the better of them as they enjoyed a public kissing session on the beach.

Ben, who is currently recovering from an operation on his ankle ligaments, was on crutches but took off his cast to let the fresh air help to heal his wound.

Ahead of Ben's arrival on Wednesday, Una tweeted: "Going to sleep tonight with THE BIGGEST smile on my face that my hubby @ben_foden is joining his wife and baby daughter in LA tomorrow XXXX."

And once he arrived, she uploaded a cute photo of them gazing into each other's eyes, with the caption: "My birthday present has arrived!!! :)."

Una and Ben wed in the singer's home county of Tipperary, Ireland in June after dating for four years.
