Proud parents Kerry Katona and Brian McFadden celebrated their eldest daughter Molly graduating from Trinity College in Dublin on Thursday.
Brian and Kerry posted pics of Molly in her cap and gown as she posed on the iconic cobbled square of the renowned Irish college.
Brian shared some sweet snaps of a beaming Molly on her big day, with the caption: “So proud of my beautiful daughter Molly graduating today at trinity college Dublin! Xx”.
Kerry also shared a picture of Molly with the caption: “My @123_mollymc in her cap and gown at graduation so very proud of you baby girl”.
The 21-year-old was the first child Brian and former Atomic Kitten singer Kerry had together during their relationship. The pair married in 2002 and went on to have another daughter, Lily-Sue, 18, before splitting in 2004.
Kerry is now happily engaged to fiancé Ryan Mahoney, while Brian has a one-year-old daughter Ruby with his fiancée Danielle Parkinson.
Over the last few years, Molly has begun to make a name for herself in her own right – amusing fans on her popular TikTok channel where she has over 155 thousand followers.
Brian was at the height of his fame when the girls were born in his early 20s, and when he left the famous band and his marriage to Kerry broke down, he took to Australia to pursue a solo career.
The former Westlife star said his young age and busy work schedule – as well as the lack of technology when his daughters were growing up – meant he missed out on a lot of their life.
Brian told Closer magazine he regrets “not being there as much for his two eldest children”.
He explained: “I was only a kid myself when I had Molly and Lilly, and I was at the height of my career in Westlife then – we were literally working 365 days a year, and there was no FaceTime so I couldn’t speak to the kids, I could only see them when I came home.”
“So it was a lot harder and I missed out on a lot of the stuff that I would have loved to have seen with the girls.”
Brian said: “It’s very easy to co-parent now our children aren’t kids any more. It was obviously a lot more difficult when they were growing up.
“Kerry and I didn’t have a very good relationship from the day we broke up until now, really, but it’s been a long time.
“We were only kids when we got together and when we broke up, but we have enough life experience now that we get on with it and there are no problems.
“There’s no fighting any more.”
