Una Healy on balancing motherhood and career

The singer says she does not remember life before becoming a parent

Una Healy admits she has a hard time remembering life before motherhood due to her busy schedule.

The 34-year-old artist – who has two children with husband Ben Foden – says it’s difficult to manage parental responsibilities along with her career.

She told The Sun on Sunday: “I’ve forgotten what life was like before having kids! I’m multi-tasking all the time, because if I’m going anywhere, doing anything, I have to think of them.”

The star also praised her husband for being helpful with the kids while she’s busy with other household chores.

“It’s a juggling act and there’s no method to it. You just have to try your best. Ben’s life is a bit more structured and scheduled than mine. He’s very hands-on with the kids and is brilliant. He plays with them while I do the washing and cooking.”

Despite being a busy mom, Healy is proud and believes her children will always remember her as a hard worker.

She continued: “I think my kids will always remember me for working and for them being a part of it all. Aofie is always telling me to pick up a guitar and play her a song. She’ll then sing and dance around to it.”

The pop star also recalled the speculation surrounding her decision to revert back to her maiden name.

She shared: “I gave [Ben] a heads-up and said I really wanted to go back to Healy for work. He was fine about it and found the speculation funny. I still use Foden for when I’m at home and for personal things.

I’m definitely not the first person to use my maiden name for career reasons and it feels right.”
