Una Healy hopes The Saturdays reunite
Una Healy hopes The Saturdays reunite – but she doesn’t see it happening for "a few years".
The 35-year-old singer – who starred in the chart-topping girl-group between 2007 and 2014 – released her debut solo album ‘The Waiting Game’ earlier this month, but has admitted she would like to perform with the band again in the future.
Una said: "I always say when the nostalgia kicks in, that’s when bands reform and I hope one day we will, but it won’t be for a few years.
"I really miss the girls and their company. We’re all doing out own thing, but I’ve got the guys in the band now. But of course I miss the girls."
Despite this, Una insisted she was relishing the experience of being a solo artist, explaining it gives her the opportunity to indulge her own specific tastes in music.
She told ‘Lorraine’: "It’s so me, totally. The whole album is about my life … now it’s unleashed to the world. I feel I’ve done a full circle.
"I was embarking on the path of a singer songwriter. Going around pubs and clubs, then I joined the Saturdays and it was a huge change for me. It’s like being given a second chance to go back to the music I like."
Una balances her music career with raising her two children, a four-year-old daughter called Aoife and a two-year-old son called Tadhg.
And the singer – who has been married to rugby player Ben Foden since 2012 – previously admitted she turns to "Google for tips" on parenting.
Asked whether she shares parenting tips with her former bandmates – Frankie Bridge, Rochelle Humes, Mollie King and Vanessa White – Una said: "I was the first to have a baby of course, but all the girls learn for themselves and every child is different. And there’s always Google. I’m living on Google for tips! It’s all a learning curve.
"My mum is the best mother I know and she raised me, and even she had to relearn it [being a mother] all again."
