WATCH: Una Foden makes sure daughter knows what Mommy does

Saturdays’ Una Foden is making sure her little girl Aoife knows what Mommy does for a living.

The Irish singer uploaded this video to her Instagram account yesterday and it just melts our hearts.

Una shows her little girl a Saturdays cd and asks her to name all of the girls, which Aoife does - excitably.

Something we embarrassingly think we would not be able to do.

The proud Tipperary native (32) is also instilling her love of GAA and her Irish roots into her daughter Aoife Belle, whose dad is English rugby star Ben Foden.

Celebrating their senior hurling quarter-final win, Una posted a picture of the adorable two-year-old dressed in the blue-and-yellow strip along with the words: "Up Tipp."

Tipperary comprehensively defeated Dublin in the All-Ireland hurling quarter-final at Una's home town of Thurles recently.

The Thurles star, who tries to get home as often as she can, appeared on the Miriam O'Callaghan Show on Saturday night, admitting that it took locals in England a while to get the hang of pronouncing Aoife's Irish name.

"I think that they're really warming to all the Irish names like Aoife and Saoirse and Siobhan and Niamh," she said.

"When they see them written down first, they don't quite understand what they are, but they hear them and they're such beautiful names and they learn them.

"I've had quite a lot of Aoife's that come up to me and say, 'Thanks for calling your daughter Aoife because now anywhere I go in the world, people actually know what my name is."

Looks like Aoife will have no problem pronounced any of their names.


And in case you missed it, here is why we simply love Una Foden.
