Singer Delta Goodrem's adjustment with beau Brian McFadden's daughters

08/29/2007 at 08:43 AM ET

Now Australian singer Delta Goodrem, 22, can’t wait to become a stepmother to boyfriend Brian McFadden‘s, 27, two daughters. But four years ago when their relationship began, she found the responsibility very difficult,

I’ve taken a long time to be able to adjust to the fact that someone I love has two kids. But it is a big responsibility and I resented it at the start. I found it really hard, I was going…’I don’t know what to do.’ But now I love them and they’re a part of our life.

Brian has daughters Molly Marie, 6 on Friday, and Lilly-Sue, 4 1/2, with ex-wife Kerry Katona, 26, and recently turned to court to gain full custody of the girls.

What is the story on the girls’ mother? Does anyone know? Or am I the only one living under a rock, in this case? Thank you..

Kerry Katona has had a history of drug and alcohol abuse. It was reported that she was using both while pregnant with her last daughter, Heidi, who was born in February. I’m not sure if there were the same rumours with her eldest daughters with Brian.

Kerry was also held at knife point a couple months back with her daughter while their house was being robbed.

I hope Molly & Lilly-Sue didn’t feel as though Delta had any sort of resentment to them. But good for her that she stuck by and they’ve grown to be apart of her life as well. I couldn’t imagine being 18 and dating a man with 2 children.

I love her honesty about it all.

Hea on

No matter how the custody battle go, Kerry will always be their mother.

At least she was honest about how she really felt at that time. She is only 22 years old, and if they started dating 4 years ago that would have put her at 18! If I was dating someone with two children at that age in my life I would have been taken aback as well! I don’t think it was that she didn’t want the children to be a part of her life, she probably was just still in the “dream” of meeting Mr. Right and having their own children together…

At least she has had time to seriously consider what being with him means for her future as well as his daughters, and seems to be ready and happy for that next step!

Good luck to the whole family!


If math serves me correct- Lily Sue was only 6 months old when he started dating Delta, he sure did move on from his ex wife pretty quickly. I wonder if their relationship started more like 4 1/2 years ago, and that’s why he and his wife got divorced.

Lovelife, it could be but we don’t know that. Brian and Kerry rushed into marriage awfully young and had two babies soon after and it just wasn’t meant to be for them. As for Delta – I guess there are few 18-year olds who’d even consider dating a guy who has two kids. Great to see how things have developed between Delta and Brian – it’s easy to see their love is for real and I hope they can build a stable family life with Molly and Lily. Of course Kerry Katona will always be the girl’s mum but at the moment it really seems they’d be better off with their dad full time.

Brian and Kerry split after Lilly’s 1st birthdday as for Lilly’s birthday Kerry was in ‘im a celeb’ reality show and they split a couple of month after that, i am pretty positive that brian and delta have been together 3 years at the very most

I agree with Rhian. Delta and Brian definitely haven’t been together four years. She was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in mid-2003 and they weren’t dating at that point. Regardless, I love Delta and her music.

Brian and Delta only started dating in December of 2004, so it hasn’t even been 3 years yet.
