Myleene Klass reveals daughter Ava, 13, wrote a song for her fiancé Simon as a Father’s Day present


They became engaged last August, on the fifth anniversary of their first date.

And, on Sunday, Myleene Klass, 43, revealed that her daughter Ava, 13, rewrote the lyrics to David Bowie‘s hit song Starman for her fiancé Simon Motson, 45, as a Father’s Day present.

Taking to Instagram, the former Hear’Say singer posted a video of her eldest child playing the guitar and singing, with her little sister Hero, 10, joining in on vocals. Myleene shares her daughters with ex-husband Graham Quinn.

Ava also shared a video montage of the blended family spending time together, to her own Instagram page, with her version of the 1972 song as soundtrack, and thanked her soon-to-be step-dad for ‘stepping up’.

Ava captioned her post: ‘I wrote this song for my Dad (with some help from Bowie). Thanks for stepping up. I love you.’ 

She also typed out the lyrics, which read: ‘Sure he wasn’t there for my first steps, But he hasn’t missed a school run yet, And if I need someone to turn to, Yeah I know where to go.

‘People at school always have so much to say, Is he really your dad if you don’t share DNA, But I gotta laugh, cause here’s what I always say,

‘He’s the best man living in my life, His love for us is endless, And he’s always got the time, He’s the best man living in my life, His patience never ending, Even when I’ve lost my mind,

‘So Hey, Everyone who knows you, knows the lengths you go to, knows why we all love you.’

Beneath Ava’s Instagram upload, Myleene commented: ‘This is so beautiful babygirl. You said it all,’ while Simon wrote: ‘This means the absolute world to me. I love you.’ 

Myleene shared the raw footage of Ava and Hero singing their version of the song, and wrote: ‘Happy Father’s day @simmotson. We all love you,’ alongside her post.

After writing out the lyrics which her daughter sang in the video, Myleene also wrote: ‘Every year @pianos_our_forte rewrites the lyrics as her present and every year, she makes us all cry!

‘Happy Father’s day to the blended, the steps, the ‘it’s complicated’, the mums pulling double shift, those not with us any more and those who wish they could be. Hope today is ok for you.’

Myleene and Simon first went public with their relationship in May 2017 and announced they were expecting their first child together on Valentine’s Day (February 14).

The presenter gave birth to son Apollo in August 2019. Simon also has two children from a previous relationship.

Myleene divorced her ex-husband Graham Quinn ten years ago, after he famously walked out of their six-month marriage on her 34th birthday.

The singer previously spoke of the devastating moment Graham walked out on her as she admitted: ‘I thought I’d never smile or trust anyone ever again’.

Speaking in an interview with Woman magazine, she added: ‘I felt so betrayed and so crushed. But I couldn’t wallow in it. I said to my mum and dad, “I’m broken, but I will not sink.”

However, the star revealed that it was her role as mother that helped her through that dark time as she continued to the newspaper’s Will Payne: ‘I just had to keep going because my girls would be up every morning asking me to make breakfast or fetch their recorders. My girls saved me.’
