Una Foden's eight-month-old son Tadhg has got chickenpox. The Saturdays star uploaded a photo on Instagram on Sunday, showing her poorly little boy having cuddles on the sofa with his doting daddy Ben Foden. "#dadlove #chickenpox," 33-year-old Una wrote alongside the photo, which shows Ben sweetly kissing the top of his sleeping son's head.

Una and her family have only recently returned from a holiday together. Last month, the singer shared a series of photos showing her and Ben relaxing in the sunshine with Tadhg and his big sister, three-year-old Aoife Belle. Both parents are besotted with their little ones, and regularly shares videos and photos of their children – indeed, alongside one holiday snapshot, proud Una simply wrote, "Nothing is more important in life than family."
Ireland-born Una and ruby star Ben, 30, welcomed their son on 2 February and introduced him to the world in an exclusive interview and photo shoot with HELLO! magazine later that same month. As well as discussing his birth, the couple, who married in June 2012, explained their reasoning behind choosing a traditional Irish name like Tadhg – which is pronounced Tai-g.

"We were going over names for ages and I'd suggested Ty, which I really liked, when Una said, 'There's an Irish name that's very similar," Ben said. "As soon as she said it, I thought, 'That’s cool.' With Una being Irish and Aoife having a traditional Irish name, it seemed fitting."
Una added: "Tadhg is quite common in Ireland so when people go on about how hard it is to match the pronunciation with the spelling, I say 'Just think, every time you say it, you're learning a new language and culture because you’re speaking a bit of Gaelic."
