It’s been almost ten years since Jade Goody lost the battle with cancer, that left her two sons, Bobby and Freddy, without a mum. But their dad, Jeff Brazier, has revealed how proud she would be if she could see them today.
Brazier made the comments in an interview in New! magazine, where he talked about the boys and how they reacted to his marriage to Kate Dwyer last year.
Looking back on the day, he said “I was incredibly proud. Just to hear them talk so eloquently and maturely and from the heart was fantastic. The day felt like more than a wedding.”
When asked whether they took after him or Goody, he admitted, “They’ve got a bit of both. It’s a complete mixture.”
The Big Brother star passed away on March 22, 2009 from cervical cancer. She met Brazier in 2002, but they parted ways in 2004. Last summer he married Dwyer and both boys spoke at the celebration.
Just a couple of days ago, the TV presenter posted a video of family life in the Brazier household on his Instagram feed. Son Freddy can be seen doing his homework in the background.
Goody’s other son Bobby seems to be taking after his mum, recently sharing modelling shots of himself on Instagram. Followers commented on just how similar he looked to the Big Brother star.
The Brazier family were in the news earlier in the year, when Goody’s widower, Jack Tweed, gave a tell-all interview to The Sun, claiming he wasn’t allowed to see the children his dead wife had wanted him to adopt.
Tweed said, “She [Jade] wanted me to adopt the kids, she wanted them to live with me but obviously I said ‘I can’t, Jeff’s their dad and I’m not going to stand in the way’.” At the time, Brazier considered legal action.
Channel 4 will be screening a documentary about Goody’s life later this month.
