Being a Dad is the Bestlife for Nicky
Westlife's Nicky Byrne is dreading the band’s new tour as it means leaving his two sons at home.
The singer (30) is enjoying father's day after enjoying a year out from music with twins Rocco and Jay.
But with just days until the group get back into the studio in LA and Nashville, Nicky is facing the prospect of having to spend long periods away from his two year olds.
And the Dubliner admitted "It will be heartbreaking to leave them and go back on tour, to be honest I haven't crossed that bridge mentally yet because it is too difficult to comprehend.
“Obviously when we tour the boys and Georgina will come with me as much as possible, but America and the Southern Hemisphere, well I will just have to go away and come back every two weeks.
“They have been on a lot of planes already but never more than a two and a half hour flight. So seven hours or more would be tough, and not to mention for the people around us so it will be something we will deal with. But it will be really tough and I am not looking forward to leaving them behind.
“Saying that, I am not the first person to have to deal with it and there are people a lot worse off at the moment."
Jay and Rocco were born six weeks premature on April 20th 2007 weighing 3lbs 11oz and 2lb 13oz, Nicky and Georgina daughter of ex-Taoiseach Bertie Ahern were assured the tots were healthy. But they had to stay in the intensive care unit at Dublin's Holles Street Hospital because they were so small, now the boys can enjoy their birthday at their North Co, Dublin home.
Nicky added "Even though it is Father's Day it is the twins who will steal the show."
He said "The lads are great they are flying around the place, they are real lad' lads, and they are starting to talk and getting their words mixed up so it is a wonderful time to be able to spend with them.
“So far for the past few months all I have been watching is Mickey Mouse and Peppa Pig and they are showing a real interest in singing and football."
Nicky is expecting a very special card from his songs and is hoping to take it easy all day.
He said "I am very lucky to have two lads like them."
