Where has the time gone?

Nicky Byrne was overcome with emotion as he celebrated his youngest child, Gia’s ninth birthday.

Yes, little Gia has turned nine! We can’t believe it!

The family celebrated in style, throwing a Halloween-themed birthday bash at their Malahide home.

Gia looked adorable in a pink jumper with strawberries decorated across it and matching hightop runners. She added a black skirt to the look.

“What a lovely day we had! Our little baby turned 9!!! Happy Birthday Gia #TimeIsFlying @georginaahernbyrne,” Nicky wrote on social media.

Clearly, they spent the day with their older twin boys Jay and Rocco as he tagged them in the post as well adding: “Family Time x.”

Gia got some lovely messages from her father’s friends and his fans on social media, Arthur Gourounlian commented: “Hpy Birthday Gia.”

While a fan wrote: “Hpy 9th birthday Gia! This year, you have nine candles on your birthday cake, so you have nine birthday wishes! Hope all of them come true before you blow out the last candle. God bless you all.”

Nicky and Georgina spent their summer with their three children before Nicky reunited with his Westlife bandmates to head on tour.

Following dates in Dublin and Cork over the summer, the beloved Irish boy band has been touring all over Europe and Asia and will also play three Christmas shows in the 3Arena in December.

His busy schedule means that he had to leave his presenting duties on Dancing with the Stars.

It was later revealed that Doireann Garrihy would be stepping into the role.
