British boyband Blue have revealed they would love their kids to follow in their footsteps and become music stars
Blue want their children to be the new Corrs.
The recently-reunited boyband - Lee Ryan, Duncan James, Antony Costa and Simon Webbe - are all fathers, and have decided their kids should pursue careers in the music business.
Lee, who has six-month-old son Rayn with his fiancee Samantha Miller, said: "It's wicked being a dad. I'm the only one of us with a boy, which screws up our girlband plans - now we've got to do the Corrs."
Simon, who has 12-year-old daughter Alanah, insists he wouldn't have been as successful in the music industry if he wasn't a father.
He explained: "If I didn't have Alanah I would never have been grounded enough to survive this career."
Antony has five-year-old Emilie with his ex-partner Lucy Bolster, while Duncan has four-year-old Tiannie-Finn with ex-girlfriend Claire Grainger.
Meanwhile, Lee has denied claims he and Samantha met after she sent him nude pictures via social networking website MySpace.
He said: "You can't do that on MySpace so I don't know where that came from. We were chatting for 18 months before we met. It was quite instant. I actually proposed to her in Sainsbury's! Right next to the Camembert, so even though she's no the romantic type, it really was cheesy."
