The 29 year old is expecting her first child with her boyfriend, England rugby star Ben Foden, who recently declared he wanted “lots of children” with his pop star girlfriend.
The Irish singer said, “I’m really happy! It was totally unexpected, but me and Ben are really excited.” In a band statement, The Saturday’s said, “We’re so excited for Una! We can’t wait to have a sixth Saturday. Ben and Una are going to be fab parents.”
The pair have a rather unconventional story of getting together but one that’s probably quite the norm in the realm of celebrity.
They started dating in 2008 when his agent approached her. She said of their getting together, “Ben’s agent got in touch with my agent who then sent me an email asking if I’d like to meet with him. I really thought it was some kind of joke. It certainly wasn’t the way I expected to meet a guy.”
The 26 year old father-to-be is currently in New Zealand with the England rugby team for the World Cup while the band are currently at No.3 in the UK charts with their dance anthem All Fired Up.
