Former Westlife star Kian Egan wants to have ten children

The former Westlife singer has 15-month-old son Koa with his former 'Hollyoaks' star wife, Jodi Albert, but jokes he'd eventually like a much larger brood.

He said: "Being Irish, I'd have ten if I could."

Jodi isn't so sure, adding: "No way!"

Kian added: "I'd love a big family but we've got to take it day by day."

Jodi is looking forward to getting back into acting now Koa is growing up, adding: "Koa's nearly 16 months and I've dedicated that time to being at home with him. Now I'm excited about going back to work. I'm only 29 and I'm not ready to just stay at home."

Jodi also says she's not been in a hurry to shed her baby weight since giving birth, as her Koa is her number one priority.

She explained to new! magazine: "I was the last woman on earth who wanted to be starving hungry and going to the gym while looking after a newborn.

"It was hard enough trying to get my head around that, so dieting was the last thing on my mind.

"[I gained] two and a half stone. I was uncomfortable because I wasn't used to being that overweight. I was a bit unhappy so I did do a bit of exercise when Koa was a few months old.

"But then I was like, 'Kian, listen, I don't want to go to the gym. I'm looking after the baby. I don't care.'"
