Ben Foden reveals how he picked his wife Una Healy after watching The Saturdays on TV

Ben Foden has revealed how he first met his wife, The Saturdays beauty Una Healy. The handsome rugby player has said he quite literally picked the pop star out after seeing her on TV.

"I'd been having lunch in a pub with my agent when he asked about my love life, and I was, 'Oh, non existent'," Ben, 27, told Attitude magazine.



"He asked if there was anyone I was thinking about, then The Saturdays popped up on the music channel in the corner, and I said, 'Oh, the one with the blue tights'.

"And the next thing I know, I've got a text saying, 'She's expecting your call'."

Ben and Una, 31, tied the knot in June 2012, and are very proud parents to little Aoife Belle, who recently celebrated her first birthday.

What many of their fans won't know is that the celebrity couple share an interest in music — although Una has enjoyed considerably more success than her husband.

Ben also revealed that he once attempted to break into the music industry with an audition on Pop Idol.

"I got through to the next round, which fell on the same day as my first training session with Sale Sharks," he told the magazine. "I think they'd say I wasn't a very good singer. I don't think I will be following in Una's footsteps."
