She's based in the UK, but Vogue Williams was at home again this bank holiday weekend to celebrate her sister Amber's birthday with family and friends - but husband Brian McFadden stayed back at base.
The fashionista admitted that the ex-Westlife star took a while to get used to her chatty family.
"It was my sister's 32nd birthday on Sunday so the whole family went out.
"Brian is filming at the moment so he wasn't there," she wrote in her blog for Hello.
"I think when all the girls in my family get together it drives Brian mad anyway because we all have about 15 conversations at a time, but that's what all girls do anyway."
The loved-up couple are happily married but still fall victim to the odd lovers' tiffs, with Howth native Vogue once blocking the former boyband star on Twitter.
