BOYZONE star Keith Duffy has called Brian McFadden his “brother from another mother” as he celebrates his 42nd birthday.
The couple perform together under the name Boyzlife and have traveled everywhere together as a group.
Keith took to his Instagram today to share a sweet message for his close friend on his birthday.
He posted photos of him and Brian over the years to mark the occasion.
A photo showed the couple having dinner and drinking wine, followed by a photo of them in tuxedos and they both had canes.
Then he shared a throwback of them as well as another of him and Brian on a plane and while on vacation together.
Keith captioned the cute images, saying, “Happy birthday to my partner in crime, my brother from another mother, @brianmcfadden123.
“Happy birthday buddy. We’ve come a long way. Who would have thought!
“A little pint of Guinness at Whelan’s to travel the world for 6 years, sold-out tours, top ten hits and our first original studio album about to be released.
“I’ll see you later today mate and we can celebrate over a pint of Black Stuff.”
The Dublin singer’s fans and friends flooded his Instagram comments section with birthday wishes for Brian.
Brian responded by saying, “Cheers brother!!!!! I believe we celebrate every day of the year.”
Rachael commented, “@brianmcfadden123 happy birthday hunk.”
Brendan said, “Happy birthday @brianmcfadden123 enjoy the celebrations with your brother @officialkeithduffy.”
Joanne wrote: “Happy birthday Brian, have a nice day. Best wishes.”
While Wendy also commented, saying, “Happy birthday Brian, hope you’re having a great day.”
It comes after Keith recently said he was “very proud” of his daughter Mia as she landed a prestigious job with an American company.
The 22-year-old autistic youngster is currently completing her fourth year of studies in business computing.
Singer Keith said his daughter is doing very well.
He said RSVP“She’s doing great – we’re very, very proud of her. Mia is very determined.
“She puts a lot of pressure on herself, but she gets a lot done, and it’s all thanks to proper intervention at the right time in her life, which we had to fight for, but we got there.”
Speaking ahead of World Autism Acceptance Week next week, Keith shared his love for his daughter.
He said: “I have a lot to be grateful for. I have a beautiful daughter who is very, very happy – as a human being she is one of the most beautiful people ever. “
