Una proves she's not too posh to push as she jets in from US

IRISH pop-princess Una Healy obviously wasn't flying Ryanair when she landed back into Heathrow this weekend, judging by her excess baggage.

The Tipperary native (31) proved she wasn't too posh to push as she performed an impressive balancing act when she arrived back into Europe after her three-month stint working in America.

The working mum had to push baby Aoife Belle's buggy with one hand while lugging a trolley stacked high with four, oversized suitcases with the other.

And she still managed to look effortlessly glamorous, despite her large load and long-haul flight from LA.

The singer -- who is married to English rugby star Ben Foden -- turned heads dressed in a pair of skinny blue jeans teamed with red pixie boots, a houndstooth jacket, black shades and a trilby.

At least Una had the luxury of flying business class for the lengthy flight. While on-board the plane, bandmember Mollie King tweeted a cute photo of Una Healy's daughter Aoife peering over the dividers between their business class beds.

She wrote: "Look at my on-board neighbour! I have a feeling I might be watching some cartoons en route home."

Speaking about his excitement about his wife Una and baby girl coming home after such a long stay, rugby star Ben Foden said: "The days of being a loner are over! My girls are heading to the airport as I tweet. Can't wait, it feels like Christmas."

Una's eight-month-old baby had become like the honorary sixth member of the band over the past number of months as she accompanied her mum everywhere during her American stay.



hitched

The chart-topping band had flown over to LA on August 8, just weeks after Rochelle Wiseman got hitched to JLS star Marvin Humes and Una's celeb-filled wedding to Ben in Tipperary.

Una and bandmates Rochelle, Mollie, Frankie Sandford and Vanessa White have spent the past few weeks Stateside working the music circuit in a bid to crack America and follow in the footsteps of stars like One Direction.

As well as filming a reality show for the E! network, they have also signed a US record deal and have been recording new songs with Rodney Jerkins and Diane Warren.

But now they're back home for a well-earned break to catch up with family and friends.
