The singer praises his ex

Brian McFadden might not always see eye-to-eye with Kerry Katona but he thinks she’s a good mum.

The former Westlife star has daughters Molly, 12, and Lilly-Sue, 11, with ex-wife Kerry, 33.

‘I’m so proud of my kids,’ says Brian, 34.

‘They’re incredibly well-mannered and well-behaved and for that I have to say all credit to their mother Kerry.

‘She’s done a great job with them and is a great mum.’

Brian lived in Australia for several years and found it tough being away from his daughters but gets to see them more since moving to London with new wife Vogue Williams last year.

‘Being in Australia away from Molly and Lilly-Sue – with the time difference – was heartbreaking,’ the singer tells Notebook.

‘But now we live so close I get to see them every weekend, which is amazing. Vogue loves the girls too and they get on really well.

‘She’s like an auntie to them and they put on make-up together and do stuff that dads don’t want to do.’
