Kian Egan and Jodi Albert share their pride as son Koa competes in surfing championship


Kian Egan and Jodi Albert were some proud parents as their son Koa competed in Surfing England’s under 12s competition.

The 11-year-old took home first prize in a heat tournament, competing against two to four other surfers, and reached the finals.

Taking to Instagram, mum Jodi beamed: “So proud of my boy winning his first heat.”

“Competing all the way through to the finals of his first ever [Surfing England] under 12s comp.”

Continuing, the London native wrote: “Proud mamma”

“So proud of my baby surfing in his mamma’s home country.”

Kian also took to social media to rave about his son’s achievements.

“What a great day yesterday.”

“So proud as always of our boy,” the Westlife star gushed.


But surfing is far from Koa’s only interest as he is also a big music fan.

Opening up to the Sunday World last year, Kian explained how Koa is discovering his own love of music, being a big fan of Billie Eilish and Harry Styles, with Harry’s 2022 gig in the Aviva stadium showing him how famous his dad really is.

Explaining; “The other week he was looking at a Harry Styles concert online and he said, ‘Daddy, is this the type of concerts you do?’ I said, ‘Yeah, buddy, that’s pretty much it.’ He said, ‘Really, that big?’ I said, ‘Yeah, that concert you’re looking at there, that’s where we’re playing in two weeks.’ He was like, ‘What!’”
