The boys' parents David and Victoria also took to Instagram to wish Brooklyn many happy returns. The dad-of-four proudly shared a photo of himself holding Brooklyn as a baby, and wrote: "So on this day 18 years ago this little man came into our lives. To say we felt blessed is an understatement. From day one he never slept through the night the only way he would fall asleep is when I took him out in the car and it had to be BoyZone on the radio and he would drop right off. Thank fully he now sleeps the whole night without needing a song.
