Jade Goody’s widower, Jack Tweed, has stated that his late wife would ‘one hundred million percent’ want him to be involved in the lives of her kids Freddie and Bobby Brazier.
Jack, 36, married Goody in 2009 when he was 21, only one month before she tragically died from cervical cancer at the age of 27.
Goody has two kids with her ex-partner, TV personality Jeff Brazier, Strictly Come Dancing star Bobby and younger sibling Freddie, now 20 and 19, respectively.
Jack, 36, says he continues to have a relationship with the boys, but while he still sees them socially, he is keen to take them out for a day and ‘be normal, just like they used to be’.
The electrician praised their father Jeff’s parenting as he said: ‘Jeff has done an amazing job bringing them up. In my eyes and the way I care about them, I look at them as my stepsons, but I don’t want to take credit for how Jeff has brought them up.’
He added that their mum would be ‘over the moon’ with ‘how well they’re both doing’.
Bobby and Jack have a mutual friend in Towie’s James ‘Arg’ Argent, with Jack adding he sees the EastEnders star ‘quite a bit’.
Bobby usually shows up when James, 35, sings at Sheesh, a renowned celeb hangout in Chigwell, according to Jack, who says he last saw him “three or four weeks ago.”
‘He’s come to a few parties. I’ve been out to lunch with him a couple of times too. Freddie I’ve seen a few times as well,’ Jack told The Mirror.
However, he and Bobby and Freddie are ‘yet to do anything on our own’.
‘I’d like to take Bobby and Freddie out and be normal, just like we used to be, maybe one day. Jade would one hundred million per cent want me to be in their lives,’ he revealed.
Bobby, who moved his father to tears with his foxtrot during week one of Strictly Come Dancing, kicked off the competition on Saturday with a vibrant jive with partner Dianne Buswell.
Les Dennis and Nancy Xu advanced to Movie Week on Sunday after losing to Nikita Kanda and Gorka Marquez in the dance-off.
He’s been hailed for big things in the future, with PR gurus saying that he’ll be at the focus of a £2.6 million bidding war as one of the highest-paid performers on TV.
