From boyband to fathers, Blue band members feel they have definitely grown up since experiencing fatherhood.
Antony Costa, who has a seven-year-old daughter, Emilie Olivia, said:
“[Having children] has made us grow up.”
Duncan James, father to Tianie-Finn, six, added:
“It’s such a big influence in your life, having a child. Your outlook changes. Simon [Webbe]’s daughter knows what’s going on, but the rest of them don’t know who Blue is.”
Simon Webbe, who has daughter Alanah (13), from a past relationship with Nicola Jones, recently split from his long-term girlfriend Layla Manoochehri and is finding maintaining a love life difficult because the band has dedicated their lives to their careers.
He explained to Star magazine:
“We’re married to the job. I’ve always been married to it. But having someone to share that with would be nice.”
However, he does agree that fatherhood has changed his focus. He added:
“My focus is my child.”
Blue – whose fourth member is Lee Ryan, who has a two-year-old son Rayn – will be performing ‘I Can’ in the Eurovision Song Contest in Dusseldorf on May 14.
