'Now I love two girls' - Love it magazine
He's more Rat Pack leader than boy band star these days. But SHANE FILAN, 27, still believes he has the best job ever - even if it means he misses his wife and the new love of his life, baby Nicole, whenever he's on tour.
"I still want to be singing in Westlife when Iím 30. I think we all do. It's hard to believe we've been together for almost 10 years now. But Iím enjoying it more than ever, especially the tours.'
My little girl, Nicole, is 18 months old, and she's a bundle of joy. She comes with me everywhere, and I just bought a house in London so we can be together more. We spend five months down in London, and now she has a garden to play in. She's even coming on tour.
Being a dad is better than I expected. I love her so much and I'd like to have another child in a few years. [Shane is married to his childhood sweetheart Gillian Walsh, who is also Kian's cousin].
The main thing for me was getting used to another person in my life - the fact that your life revolves around the baby and you have to plan around her. I used to just miss Gillian, and now it's two of them I miss.
It's my plan to carry on with Westlife for at least another few years. It's hard to know what will happen, though. But we're enjoying it and are seeing the rewards.
Our families have comfortable lives. We look forward to things like the tours, now sharing them with our families, then coming home afterwards."
