Former Westlife singer Kian Egan and his wife Jodi Albert have introduced their adorable son Zekey – as Jodi revealed his arrival helped her through the heartache of losing her mum.
GLittle Zekey was born on May 21 and the gorgeous couple posed for pictures with their newest arrival in a gorgeous shoot for OK! magazine.
Jodi, 32, opened up about Zekey’s arrival which happened just months after she lost her mum to cancer – and revealed they share a very special connection.
She said: “It absolutely breaks my heart that [mum] will never meet him, so the fact he was born on her birthday is extra special as it means she’s a part of him.”
Kian, 35, and Jodi, 31, tied the knot in 2009 before welcoming son Koa in 2011.
Speaking about how Zekey looks like her late mum Eileen, Jodi added: “We both cried our eyes out as we couldn’t believe what a miracle it was. I mean, Koa was blonde and blue-eyed.
“It was such a massive run of emotions. I felt like the broken heart that I had from my mum was closing a little bit because he was here, safe and healthy.”
Jodi gave birth by caesarean and doting dad Kian said he was taking charge of night feeds while she heals from the operation, which he said was “quite scary” to watch.
Jodi said: “There was no pain but I could feel hands in my stomach rummaging about, which was really strange. I’d take labour pains any day.”
The couple announced the happy news they were expecting their second child in November by posting an adorable video of their son Koa excitedly shouting: “Mummy’s got a baby in her belly and I’m going to be a big brother!”
