Cuteness overload.

Westlife’s little ones are taking after their dads as the boyband has revealed that they are forming their own band.

Just like their dads, the children of Westlife have created their own band, and it’s surprisingly somewhat a family band.

Speaking in an interview on The Jonathan Ross Show, Kian Egan revealed that music clearly runs through their veins and talent is in their genes.

“Westlife Two Cousins is what they call themselves. Shane is married to my first cousin so that actually makes our children related,” Kian said.

“They’ve formed a little band. Nicole is writing songs and Nicky’s little girl Gia was only six at the time – she was security.

“We always wanted to film them because they were actually quite good. Gia would be like ‘No, you’re not allowed to film.’ She would be coming around and pulling the phones off us.”

Speaking about how they’re all now dads, Mark was the most recent of the band to have a baby.

“They have a backstage crew going on. There are 10 of them backstage now. They’re so lovely,” said Shane Filan.

While it’s all fun and games having their little ones in a band together, let’s just hope they don’t follow in their dads’ footsteps too much.

Reminiscing on the time they performed at Wayne Rooney’s wedding, the lads let it slip that they may have gotten carried away by the end of it.

“I definitely got a bit carried away. We started having a few drinks and before you know it you’re at the bar doing shots with one of Wayne’s cousins or something like that,” Kian said.

“I remember being carried out by our security and going back up to our dressing room in the hotel and vomiting into the bathtub!”
