Welcome to the world Prince George!

Hi everyone,

Ben and I are so thrilled for William and Kate’s new arrival. A little baby boy – welcome to the world Prince George! I hope they’re enjoying some downtime and peace to get to know their baby. Those first few days are so precious.

I’ve been dying to tell you about our amazing holiday in Portugal. We went a hotel called Martinhal Beach Hotel and Resort which is in Sagres, at the furthest south western point of the Algarve. As you can probably imagine it was absolutely gorgeous.




It’s really child-friendly – literally everyone there has children – but they’d done it really well and that didn’t ruin the magic of the place at all. You still felt like you were having a romantic, luxurious experience. I’d recommend it to anyone wanting for a family-friendly holiday while still feeling indulged and pampered. Of course you want to spend as much time as possible with your children while you’re on holiday but there’s a brilliant crèche if you need it.




We were there for about ten days and spent most of it chilling by the pool and on the beach. Ben and I did a spot of paddle boarding in the sea. The first time we did it I did really well but on the second occasion the currents had really picked up and the tide was going out quickly.




I’m a really strong swimmer but I just couldn’t get myself back into the shore – it was like taking one step forward and two steps back. It was a bit scary for a couple of minutes but I had a life jacket on so I was safe. Ben was great and started to tow me in and then the hotel speedboat came to our rescue!




Ben, Aoife and I saw Rochelle, Marvin and Alaia while we were out there too. They were on holiday in the Algarve too. They were in Quinta do Lago which was about an hour and a half from our hotel. The Algarve is a golfer’s paradise so Ben and Marvin were kept entertained!

Our husbands teamed up together and played against some of Marvin’s friends and they were very proud to win. While they were out on the golf course Rochelle and I had a girly catch up by the pool with Aoife and Alaia. Once the boys were back we went out for a really delicious dinner together.




We flew back to the UK and headed straight up to Cheshire to a wedding. It was one of Ben’s best friends who was tying the knot and Ben was best man. He made a great speech and it was a fantastic weekend.

It was good to be back to work on Monday. It’s always tough after a relaxing break but it’s always great to see the girls again and catch up. We’d all been away so there was lots of chatting to do and of course some work to crack on with as well.

I’ve got some more photos to share with you from our album ‘Aoife’s first summer holiday’ next time.

Speak soon.

Love from Una xxxxx

  5. Hi Una :)

    So happy you enjoyed being here, in Portugal. Hopefully, one day you’ll come to give a concert: Portuguese Team Sats would be so happy!

    I love to read your blog because it shows that, above all the pop star image and work, you can have a normal live, and have a family, be a mom. It’s awesome to notice that. It takes the “girls band thing” to another level, because you show us that everything is possible :)

    Just so you know, I’m so excited to see and listen to “Disco Love”. And the Volkswagen in the video? Really? It’s just one of my favorite cars! Perfect! Can’t wait! xx
