Una Healy reveals her family was the reason she came back to Ireland

Una Healy has revealed that the main reason she made the decision to come back to Ireland was because of her family.

Una has had a crazy year following rumours of a throuple with David Haye, as well as getting her solo career in action.

When it comes to her personal life, Una says it is filled with caring for her two children as she watches them grow up.

Speaking to Hello Magazine, the former The Saturdays star spoke candidly about her family life and co-parenting with ex-husband Ben Foden.

Una shares two children with the former rugby player, 11 year old daughter Aoife and eight year old son Tadhg.

As she raises her two children in Ireland while their dad lives in the US, Una said the two are “like my little friends now…I’m still their mother and I’ll always put them first, but we do things that friends would do, like going out for dinner or watching a film. That’s the relationship I have with them.”

But in harder times of her career and marriage breakdown, it was her family that inspired her to move home.

The three moved to Tipperary three years ago and Una has now said she believes this was the best decision she could have made.

She said: “I’d been on my own with the kids for months. I was struggling, not having my support system around me, so my family were like: ‘You need to come home’.”

Una has been recently linked to comedian Stephen Mullan following her split from David Haye earlier this year.

Stephen is best known for being the voiceover man for Love Island Australia in 2021.
