Katona Opens Up...
have become one of Ireland's most famous families,
living a luxurious lifestyle with all the trappings
of their fame and fortune while remaining committed
to their daughter.
while Kerry Katona and her Westlife
husband Bryan McFadden are the first to admit
they have a privileged lifestyle, they also tell a
story of sacrifices and hardships they have endured
for their success.
As their careers in ShowBiz continue to soar, Kerry
revealed how they have suffered the heartache of having
to compromise their relationship for fame.
"There's so much of the time that Bryan and I have
to spend apart and that's the hardest thing. He will
be away working with Westlife and I'll be in London
doing my TV work and it becomes heartbreaking. I take
Molly everywhere with me because I want to be
there for every second of her growing up. But the
time it really hits home is when you're sitting on
your own in the evening and the baby is sleeping"
went on: "That's when I miss Bryan most. I love him
as much as the day we got married and it's hard for
both of us."
The millionaire couple, both 21, married in January,
just four months after their daughter Molly was born.
But after the Slane Castle celebrations, Kerry had
no intentions of sitting back and enjoying the fruits
of their pop success.
She signed a deal to present Channel 5 show
Exclusive and has now announced plans to host
a dating show on ITV1. Her frantic schedule,
along with Bryan's commitments to the band, means
they can never be guaranteed time to spend together.
said: "It's tough for Bryan too because he has to
go all over the world with Westlife and misses some
of the little things with Molly. He'll be on the phone
to us for hours when he is away just talking about
things. Some times we go for weeks spending every
minute together but with my TV work it's become more
difficult to coordinate our schedules. But the bottom
line for both Bryan and me is that we put our family
first. He is a family man and that comes before everything.
Whenever we get to even spend an hour together, one
of us will jump on the plane and make that journey.
We don't want to be one of these couples that makes
a bit of money then just sits doing nothing for the
rest of our lives. We are prepared to work."
has been bombarded with offers to sing again since
she quit Atomic Kitten after becoming pregnant.
But she is terrified of performing as a solo artist
and said she would never return to the music business.
added: "I just can't handle having to go out on that
stage all on my own. It was different when I was in
Atomic Kitten and the other girls were with me. Plenty
of people have offered to give me a record deal and
invited me to perform at concerts but I really don't
think I could do it."
giving birth, Kerry has been trying to balance her
career aspirations with the responsibilities of parenthood.
She also worked hard to get back into shape but admitted
it wasn't easy, adding:
"There are times when I thought I'd never get back
to the way I was. I think everyone who has a baby
worries about their weight after it's all over because
there is a fear that you'll never be your old self
again. But I'm happy with the way I look and so is
Bryan which is the most important thing. He always
tells me that he prefers me the way I am now and also
that he likes a bit of meat on a girl. I think people
can get too hung up on weight and in ShowBiz there's
always focus on how people look and that can be hard."
couple live in a penthouse apartment near Dublin city
centre but spend much of their time in hotels.
said: "We like to be near the city where everything
is happening. We tried living out in a big house in
the countryside but it wasn't for us. In the end,
we wanted to get back to what we knew and we bought
a nice place in the city. We are a really normal family
and just do normal things when we are all at home.
We spend most of our time playing with Molly and going
out on family trips. I didn't have an easy childhood
but I knew the value of love and how important that
is. That's the most important thing to me - giving
love to Molly and it doesn't matter how much money
you have - love is what really counts. I don't know
what I want her to be when she grows up but I would
be happy for her no matter what path she chooses as
long as she is happy."
