Simon Webbe spoke with The Sun about his daughter Alanah, the product of a brief fling with the child’s mother Nichola when the former Blue star was seventeen. “I didn’t see Alanah until four years ago, when Blue’s fame was at its height,” the 27-year-old explained. “It was difficult, Nichola had met another man and I tried to see Alanah but it didn’t happen until then. As soon as she was born, I knew I had to change my life. She gave me focus, she gave me unconditional love and I wanted to give her a father to be proud of. I owe what I am today to Alanah. All I ever wanted was to be a good dad. I’m single now, have been for a few years. I’m dating but there is nobody I would call my girlfriend. I learned sex is not the be all and end all when I was young. I’m not looking for a girlfriend, I am looking for a wife. I don’t know how long what I’m doing is going to last my solo career so I’m making the most of it.” Read more.
