Westlife’s children star in band’s latest music video
Westlife have released an emotional new music video featuring the band members’ children.
The Irish pop group – consisting of Shane Filan, Markus Feehily, Kian Egan and Nicky Byrne – have returned with their latest single My Blood.
The ballad, co-written by Ed Sheeran and Steve Mac, features the band singing about their experiences of raising a family.

They are joined by Egan’s children Koa, seven, Zekey, four and two-year-old Cobi.

“My Blood has such beautiful lyrics. It is a powerful, heartfelt song which has such a strong meaning for all of us. The single reflects where we are at this time in our lives – raising children and starting families,” a statement from the band said.
“This is our fourth single that has been co-written by Ed Sheeran and Steve Mac. It has been brilliant to work with them. My Blood is the prefect lead into our upcoming album Spectrum.”
Westlife, formed in 1998, split up in 2012 but reunited six years later.
Earlier this year they embarked on the Twenty Tour, which the band said sold a record 600,000 tickets across 27 cities and 13 countries.
Westlife’s 11th studio album Spectrum will be released on November 15.
