The former Westlife star has two teenage daughters – Molly, 18, and Lilly-Sue, 16, – from his marriage to Kerry Katona.

Speaking at the National Film Awards, Brian told Closer magazine: “I’d love more kids. I love my two girls, but I’d love to have small kids again now.

“My sister has just had a baby, and I’m absolutely obsessed with her daughter. I’m feeling broody.”

At the time, Brian also admitted he was in no rush to tie the knot again anytime soon.

The star married ex Kerry in 2002, but they finalised their divorce in 2006. Brian went on to marry Vogue Williams in 2012, but they divorced in 2017.

He told OK! magazine: “No, no. We have already talked about it. There won’t be a reunion.

“They are two different bands- the Westlife I was in and the Westlife they are in.”
