KERRY Katona’s daughter Molly is “loving” living in Ireland with her grandparents after moving away from home.
The 16-year-old has moved in with dad Brian McFadden’s parents in order to help her better concentrate on her upcoming GCSE’s and exams.
And according to Brian – who also has 14-year-old Lilly with Kerry – the move has proved to be a great success as she’s spoiled by her family over there.
Speaking about his eldest daughter, Brian revealed: “[She’s doing] good. It’s very different for her. She’s so used to being in a house with five kids.
“But studying for her finals, it’s important that she can get a bit of peace and quiet and she gets spoilt rotten by my parents as well, so she’s loving it.”
However, the 37-year-old singer can’t understand why his ex-wife Kerry has publicly declared Molly is working towards becoming a doctor.
Asked if she still wants a career in medicine, Brian told OK! magazine: “No. That’s probably just something Kerry said. She’ll do something creative because she’s a good singer.
“I don’t know what Lilly is going to do yet – she’s a bit of a madam.”
Brian will be pleased Molly has settled in well because Kerry – who also has Heidi, 10, and Max, nine, from her marriage to Mark Croft, and three-year-old Dylan-Jorge, aka DJ, with estranged spouse George Kay – recently claimed she didn’t think her daughter would be able to stay away for long.
Speaking before Molly moved, she said: “Knowing Molly, she’ll be back every weekend.
“If she doesn’t like it, she can always come back home…
“I do think, a few months down the line, she might want to come home because I know my Molly. She will be massively homesick.
“But I’ve told her that I think it’s the right thing to do. Her mind is like a sponge and just soaks everything up.”
Kerry confessed in June that she’d broken down in tears while looking at old baby pictures of Molly, realising how much she will miss her when she’s gone.
It was Molly’s ex-Westlife star dad Brian who broke the news in March about her big move to Dublin.
“I think it’ll be easier for Molly to concentrate on her exams there,” he told OK! magazine.
“It’s going to make things harder now for us all to be together, but you have to make sacrifices.”
