Kian Egan and his wife, Jodi, have opened up about their family life and their future together. Chatting to HELLO! magazine before the birth of their second child, Zeke, the winner of I’m A Celebrity… and his wife revealed that they missed each other so much during his time on the show that they decided to extend their family.
Jodi told HELLO!: “We were in the canteen just after he’d emerged from the jungle when he looked at me and said, ‘We’ve got to have another baby!’ I was stunned – but I’m all for it. I’d like a little girl next.”
The pair now share three children, six-year-old Koa, three-year-old Zeke and Cobi, one, and little Koa joined his dad on Big Star’s Little Star on Saturday in order to win money for charity. Speaking about his beautiful family, Kian said: “Being away from my family made me look at our lives. I was on top of the world and the only other time I’d felt like this was when we had Koa. I’d love to have a mini Jodi.
I’m so lucky to have her and Koa and if we can give him a brother or sister, why wait?” Chatting about his time on I’m a Celeb, he added: “It taught me to take nothing for granted. Just to be able to walk past a shop and buy a bar of chocolate feels fantastic to me now. When you’re stripped of all the resources we have at our fingertips and forced to live on a small portion of rice and beans each day it changes your outlook, makes you think.”
Other stars appearing on the show include Samia Longchambon and her daughter Freya, and Bridget Jones actress Sally Phillips with her son, Tom. The show encourages the youngsters to spill the beans on their parents, revealing secrets about their home lives.
