When does the time go?
Mark Feehily marked his daughter’s fourth birthday this week and he couldn’t be prouder.
The Westlife star shared a sweet snap of him with his daughter.
The little one looked away from the camera as she wore a pink top with watermelon patterns across it. And the four-year-old is definitely giving us hair envy with her gorgeous curls!

“My birthday girl is growing up fast! #4,” he captioned the picture.
Mark and his partner Cailean O’Neill welcomed Layla, via surrogacy, in 2019.
It wasn’t long before he was inundated with comments from his pals sharing their well-wishes for Layla.
“Happy Birthday beautiful girl,” his Westlife bandmate Kian Egan wrote.
“Look at that stunning girl !!!! Beautiful pic Marky,” Jodi Albert added.
“She’s a beauty – happy birthday Layla,” Glenda Gilson commented.
His friend Rosanna Davison wrote: “Happy birthday Layla. Sophia will be 4 next month, can’t believe it! Enjoy the celebrations.”
Mark has been taking some time away from Westlife due to illness.

Sharing the news with fans on Instagram, Mark apologised to fans and explained the situation.
Writing: “This summer, our Wild Dreams tour continues and we are so blessed for the huge love and support we receive from our fans worldwide. We have five shows taking place this summer from May-July and it is with deep regret that I will not be able to join Shane, Kian and Nicky on stage for those shows.”
“This week I have to undergo a little bit of surgery. There is nothing to worry about I promise, but under doctor’s orders this surgery needs to happen sooner rather than later and will also require some recovery time throughout the summer.”
