Today the Sligo singer took to his Instagram to share an adorable video of his young daughter enjoying herself.

In the video, the young girl leads her father on a bike path in a park and she runs.

She wears a cute wine beanie with denim jeans and a black jacket.

Midway through the video, Layla turned to make sure her dad was following her.

Mark captioned the video, saying: “Wonderful dad and daughter moment!

“(The little look to check that I’m still here).”

Mark’s fans and friends flocked to his Instagram comments section to share their love for the post.

One follower commented, “Oh Mark…what a little cutie. Enjoy time with your lovely daughter!”

Saanya said, “Yes, daddy’s here, welcome back to my little run – adorbssss!”

Jean wrote, “You are beautiful Layla.”

While Manja also commented, saying, “Awww she is so cute. Enjoy time with your lovely girl.”


It comes after Mark recently shared one of the worst vacations he’s ever had.

The singer, 41, can thank himself for the successful getaways he and his girlfriend have had because as soon as Cailean took charge of the bookings, everything went downhill.

Mark explained that he was the “travel agent” of the relationship, making sure to check hotel reviews before boarding the plane.

The Sligo native gave up control of holiday planning a few years ago when Cailean wanted to try his hand at planning the perfect getaway.


Mark explained: “I go over the board, look at all the hotels in the country, then look at the reviews and go back and double check.

“I’m extra, extra alert because I’ve had experiences where I haven’t been as alert and ended up in a horrible place.

“Four or five years ago, Cailean was like, ‘Let me book.’ And I was like, ‘Cool, yeah, what could go wrong?’

Mark laughed and continued: “Cailean booked an all-inclusive package where you get flight, hotel and transfers all in one package.

“It was in Cancun Mexico, I was really looking forward to it, I had never really been to that side of the world before.”

Mark later told Alan Carr’s Life’s A Beach podcast that the pool was overrun with old people “twerking” and drinking pitchers of cocktails, “like on spring break”.
