She added: "Everyone who’s had kids go off to university say, it’s normal. I’m super proud of him but, God, I’m gonna miss him. He’s really far away in America, I just wish he was in Nottingham or Birmingham. I’d even take Scotland just not as far as America."
The former Eternal singer also said that she had been tempted by the idea of moving abroad but wouldn't disrupt her youngest child Beau: "It is something that I would do but I’ve got Beau. Beau’s life is still very much here and Beau’s only 13 so I would never take off and live in another country when Beau’s life is here, school, football and obviously his dad so I would never take him away and I would never leave him."
Redknapp has also been working on new music since her 2020 comeback album 'Heavy Love' which was her first release in 20 years.
