Brian McFadden has already guessed what daughters Molly and Lilly-Sue will be getting him for Christmas!
Appearing on today’s Loose Women, the former Westlife star revealed the duo are so desperate for him to ditch the beard, they always gift him a razor under the Christmas tree for encouragement.
Alas, it hasn’t worked just yet!
Brian, who shares Molly, 16, and Lilly-Sue, 14, with ex-wife Kerry Katona, said: “The kids always buy me razors as they want me to shave my beard.
“My daughter Lilly every year gets me three blades as she doesn’t like my beard and wants me to shave it.”
As for what Molly and Lilly-Sue want, he joked: “Our kids have gone past Santa now. The kids just want me to buy the presents instead! Santa can look after the other kids and we can buy the iPhones!”
Brian and Atomic Kitten singer Kerry split in 2006 after four years of marriage.
This year, Molly and Lilly-Sue will be spending the holiday season with Kerry in England. She’s also mum to three other kids.
“This year it’s the kids’ turn to be with their mother, so I’ll probably do something with my girlfriend. I’ll probably go away on holiday,” Brian told Reveal magazine recently.
“Every second year I have my kids. Me and their mother share their Christmases and I had them last year. When I have the kids, we always go to my mum and dad’s house and have an old-school family Christmas.”
Brian recently told The Irish Sun that he and Kerry are on good terms now, and work closely to ensure the kids’ well-being.
“We don’t speak about everyday stuff but we do work closely with anything to do with our kids, the same as most separated parents it’s always about the kids,” he said.”
“Our relationship is the best it has ever been. There are no fights or arguments, its all good now. It’s taken a long time to get there but I’m glad it’s like that.”
