Frankie’s baby boy’s wardrobe is amazing already!

Hi everyone,

Hope you’re having a good weekend. Did anyone tune into Sunday Brunch and hear the Sats performing an acoustic set? We met up with another acoustic player and a percussionist this weekend to perfect it so I was really excited for you to hear it. I hope you found it lovely and chilled — just how Sunday mornings should be.

Disco Love is out on Sunday so you’re going to be seeing us on TV a lot next week – we’re doing Daybreak, This Morning and the Alan Titchmarsh show. We’re also going to be on the radio and will be doing some online stuff too which is an incredibly important part of our work now. We’ve also going to be on Surprise Surprise on Sunday night with a really special treat so keep your eyes peeled for that too.




We’re all missing Frankie so much. She’s getting pretty bored at home waiting for her little baby boy to arrive but he’s not far away. He’s going to have the best wardrobe going – I’m sure you’ve seen the photos she’s been posting on Twitter – that’s not even the half of it!

Alaia-Mai is really well too. Marvin brought her along when we were performing last weekend so the Sats aunties got to dote on her. She didn’t have her ear defenders on so she couldn’t come to the side of the stage, so he stayed backstage in the dressing room with her. I hadn’t seen her for a couple of weeks and she seemed to have really grown. She still looks teeny tiny compared to Aoife who’s becoming like a proper little girl now.

I’m really looking forward to being treated for my birthday by Ben next week. My birthday’s on the 10th October but we’ll be celebrating the day before because that fits in best with our schedules. We’re going to the theatre in London, having dinner in the West End and spending the night in a hotel. Can’t wait to tell you all about it next week!

Lots of love,

Gorgeous gifts from the Sats aunties for adorable Alaia-Mai

Hello lovely readers,

Hope you’re all enjoying the blog.

The Sats aunties have been doting on Rochelle and Marvin’s adorable baby girl Alaia-Mai. We went to visit her last week and went back yesterday.

She is so unbelievably gorgeous. We’ve been showering their baby with gifts for a while now, we can’t seem to stop! Last week, I took Alaia a really cute Ralph Lauren bib and babygro and a hamper full of sweet little baby gifts and goodies. The other girls took her pretty little dresses and outfits so she’s got a great wardrobe already!marvin-alaia

It’s hard to tell whether she looks like her Mummy or Daddy at the moment because she’s so tiny. I think she’s got Rochelle’s lips and the rest is a good mix of both of them.

Rochelle is doing great and loves being a mum. Of course she’s really tired though. They say sleep while you can before you have the baby (which we all know is almost impossible) — and now she knows why.

After visiting Alaia, I sent a tweet and mentioned that I was getting broody. Spending time with such a gorgeous little girl is enough to make anyone broody but it doesn’t mean Aoife will be getting a little brother or sister right away! I am happy for the moment with just the one.

Rumours always start flying that we’re splitting up when a pregnancy is announced but having children is no reason for the Sats to stop. I proved you can do it and we’ve got a really bright future together.

Speak soon!

Baby Alaia-Mai is absolutely gorgeous

Hi everyone,

It’s been such an exciting week for the Sats aunties – we met little Alaia-Mai on Wednesday and she’s absolutely gorgeous. We’re thrilled for Rochelle and Marvin and I’m delighted to say they’re both doing really well.una-sats-downing-stuna-downing-street-2

As well as spending time with baby Alaia-Mai, Mollie, Vanessa and I were at 11 Downing Street for the charity Rays of Sunshine’s 10th Birthday party.. We went to a tea party with the children and met Samantha Cameron while we were there. The charity grants wishes to children and teenagers living with serious or life-threatening illnesses in the UK.

We met some incredible children with truly amazing stories. We met one particularly special little boy called Oscar. He is a huge Saturdays fan and we surprised him by answering the door to him when he arrived. He was so cute and we all wanted to take him home.

We do a lot of work with that particular charity so we’re really keen to help out where we can.

Speak to you all soon.

The Sats can’t wait to meet Rochelle and Marvin’s baby girl

rochelle-una-blogHello everyone,

The Sats are so excited that Rochelle has had her baby! It’s a little girl named Alaia-Mai. We’re over the moon for her and Marvin and can’t wait to meet her.

We’d been waiting for a call to hear the baby had arrived for a while. Every time my phone rang I thought it was baby news. The last few days we hadn’t heard from her much so we were all thinking it was very soon so we’re delighted that their little girl is here and well.

The Sats were performing at the Doncaster Races on Saturday. It was great fun, we’re doing quite a few racecourse concerts this summer. They’re great because there’s always a big crowd, at Doncaster there were about 9,000 so the atmosphere is electric. The people in the audience are a real mix so it’s really fascinating as a performer. You get the fans who have bought tickets specifically to see you and then there’s the race goers who hang around afterwards to catch the show. Lots of them were wearing fascinators which is quite novel for one of our gigs and they looked really glam! We sang What About Us and it proved a real hit with the crowd who were singing it back to us which gave a really cool echo effect.

I found time to watch Eurovision over the weekend, it’s a really special show to me because I performed on it with Ireland in 2006 as a backing singer for Brian Kennedy. I watched the competition when I was little — Ireland were really successful back then. We came last this year — I was so shocked, Ryan Dolan is such a good singer and the song was great. Bonnie was great too. I’m a big fan of hers and power ballads in general. I supported her at a gig in Ireland once so I’ve got a bit of history with her too. She’s a lovely lady.

I thought the general level was incredible this year. I’m a massive fan of the whole spectacle — not just the singing but the staging, the dancing and their costumes too. I remember being really wowed by performing on the Eurovision. It’s such a huge event with millions of people watching so it’s an awesome thing to be a part of.

Speak to you all soon.
