Noel Gallagher - Noel Gallagher: Happy family rewarded by success

Noel Gallagher's wife is thrilled he's doing well - because she gets to have a new kitchen.

The singer/songwriter has enjoyed huge success with solo project, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, since quitting Oasis in 2009 and he admits its most rewarding thing is having a happy family.

Noel - who has two sons, Donovan, five, and two-year-old Sonny, with spouse Sara MacDonald, and 12-year-old daughter Anais from his marriage to Meg Matthews - said: ''I'm coming out ahead. It's all gone very much according to plan. The second album [with 'Amorphous Androgynous'] ended up having to be scrapped. That cost me a fortune. I made a tour film, which cost me a fortune, which I also scrapped. But all that being said, I've come out ahead.

''My wife is thrilled about that. She gets a new kitchen. My children are thrilled. They get to go to schools without metal detectors. My cat. He's thrilled. It means he's not gonna get thrown in the canal anytime soon.''

However, Noel admits he is workaholic and needs a rest soon.

The 45-year-old star added to ''I'm a little bit of a control freak when it comes to my music, unfortunately. I need a holiday. I've suddenly started to look like Keith Richards. That's not good.''
