Una Healy - Una Healy needed a nanny

Una Healy had to hire a nanny to help her raise her daughter - because it's tough juggling motherhood with her pop career.

The Saturdays singer has an 11-month-old daughter Aoife with her England rugby player husband Ben Foden and although the couple tried to take on all the child care responsibilities themselves at first it was too hard with their busy careers.

Una said: ''When I'm not working, she's with us all the time but when I'm working, if I can have her around, I will. We tried to do it ourselves but it was very hard, it's not a nine-to-five job and we struggled, so we got a nanny.''

The Irish beauty misses her baby terribly when she has to be away from her because of her commitments with the band, but she is always striving to find the right balance between work and family life because she doesn't want to give up a career she worked so hard to get.

She added to OK! magazine: ''The first time I'd been apart from her was for a week in New York and I was so down.

''But being a mum is a full-time job no matter how you look at it. It never ends. Whether you're a stay-at-home mum or a working mum, a mother's work is never done. I love being a mum but I also have a job I love. I've learned that you don't have to sacrifice either, you have to balance them.''

Una's husband Ben always supports his wife in her career and their families are more than happy to help out so they can work.

Ben said: ''My mum did ask what Una was going to do when we announced we were going to get married, but she wants Una to be successful in what she's doing and understands she's only got a window of five to 10 years, and it's the same in my career. Everyone who knows us knows Una is a great mother who also works incredibly hard.''
