Una: ‘We’re focusing on other things’


In an Interview with the Daily Mail, Una – again – says that the group ‘absolutely 100% I’ll say it now we’re not splitting up we’re just going on a little bit of a hiatus.’ but also confirms that she would love to release a solo album:

Asserting that the group will ‘100%’ return, Foden shut down any speculation of a pending breakup.

When asked if the girls had called it quits, she said: ‘No, no, no like absolutely 100% I’ll say it now we’re not splitting up we’re just going on a little bit of a hiatus.

‘We just feel that we’ve got to that point where we’re kind of taking a little step back and focusing on other things that we might want to personally pursue.’

She continued: ‘We definitely plan to get back together and do more stuff in the future.’

Expressing her desire to release music as The Saturdays take a break from the spotlight, Una revealed that she has been putting her pen to paper.

The Irish songwriter said: ‘Music is my passion. It’s definitely something I’d like to do.

‘I’d love to put an album of my own together because I’ve been writing for a long time.’ 

With plans to make a create a solo LP, Una admitted that she and husband rugby star Ben Foden are in no rush to add to their brood.

Stating that their son Tadhg, born in February, is settling into a routine while their firstborn Aoife has taken to the role of big sister tremendously well, Foden described their home as ‘complete’.

Content with the size of her family, the Disco Love singer told MailOnline: ‘Oh gosh, definitely not right now! I feel quite balanced with it all and the household is balanced with a boy and a girl.

‘It’s not on the cards any time soon but you can never say never because you don’t know what’s going to happen.’

Una added: ‘But for right now I’ll say we’re quite complete with the two.’

Quipping that in the early days Tadhg offered a ‘few surprises’ in the nappy changing department in comparison to Aoife, she gushed that her little girl constantly declares her love for her baby brother.

Speaking about the three-year-old, Una said: ‘She’s so good, she really is.

‘She’s only three but she has this maternal instinct in her and she’s always going up and rubbing his head saying she loves him.

‘She’s always helping me out when I ask her to get me things which is really good.’

With so much going on in her life, Una voiced her desire to visit Marrakesh in a bid to get away from the UK and Ireland’s unpredictable weather.

She said: ‘I’d quite like to got to Marrakesh. It’s really up and coming, I’ve never been there before and you’re guaranteed a nice bit of weather not like here!’

Fronting the new Fly Cadbury Air experience, which will see lucky travellers enjoy five bespoke getaways to destinations including Barcelona and Monaco, Foden spoke about how envious she is of those who will go on to win all the all expenses paid trips.

She said: ‘I would love to be whoever’s plus one to get a chance to go on board because it’s a beautiful plane, you get put up in a gorgeous hotel with food and spending money.’

Una added: ‘It’s a great, great treat for someone to win.’
