Singer Nicky Byrne has revealed mixed emotions at his first Christmas without his late granny, and first with newborn daughter Gia.
It was the third time presenting the Cheerios Childline concert on his own, but this year was extra special for Nicky Byrne as his baby daughter Gia was backstage to cheer him on.
Th Westlife star’s daughter marked her one month birthday yesterday, and Nicky and his wife Georgina brought her along to the show to celebrate.
“She’s the most beautiful little thing I’ve ever met,” he said.
“We’re absolutely delighted with her. She’s so placid and calm. We absolutely adore her and so do the boys.”
Nicky interviewed his former Westlife bandmate Shane Filan on stage after Shane performed for the first time at Childine as a solo act.
The 35-year-old said: “It was great because I haven’t seen Shane since I did Strictly Come Dancing. We’ve kept in touch but this was the first time we were on stage together again.”
