Who is Brian McFadden's fiancé? 

McFadden, and the rest of Westlife, are living their best, uh, lives. The group, which formed in 1998 but disbanded in 2012, reunited last year and look to be poised to make a comeback.

Though Shane Filan, Mark Feehily, Kian Egan, and Nicky Byrne are part of the lineup, Brian McFadden — who was once one of the most prominent members of the group — is no longer part of Westlife. The band's current album is called Spectrum, and interest in them is higher than ever.

And, again, even though McFadden is no longer part of the Westlife lineup, fans are still dying to know what he's up to. So here's what we know about Brian McFadden's fiancé.

1. Who is Brian McFadden's fiancé? Her name is Danielle Parkinson. 

Danielle Parkinson has been dating Brian McFadden since they were introduced by jazz singer Cole Page. On December 23, 2019, McFadden took to his Twitter page to announce he was engaged "to the girl of his dreams."

2. She will be McFadden's third wife. 

Danielle Parkinson will become McFadden's third wife. Before Parkinson, he was married to Atomic Kitten singer Kerry Katona from 2002 to 2006, with whom he has two children, Molly and Lilly Sue. He also was married to Vogue Williams from 2012 to 2017, and was in a long-term relationship with Delta Goodrem.

3. McFadden's ex-wife is supportive of her ex-husband's new relationship. 

Katona has no hard feelings about her split from Brian McFadden. When the singer announced that he was engaged to Parkinson, Katona took to her own Twitter to tell her ex-husband that he found "a good one" and wished him well in his new life with Parkinson.

4. McFadden's daughters also support their soon-to-be new stepmother, too. 

Shortly after he announced that he and Parkinson were engaged, McFadden took to his Instagram to share a photo of himself with his two daughters with Katona. McFadden said that he and "his babies" were celebrating his engagement to Parkinson, so it looks like this is going to go well.

5. Parkinson is a physical education teacher. 

Unlike his previous partners, Danielle Parkinson isn't in the entertainment industry. Rather, she's a physical education teacher based in England. He even moved from Ireland to England to be with her!

6. McFadden and Katona weren't always cool with one another. 

It's great that Katona was — and is — so supportive of McFadden's relationship with Parkinson, but that wasn't always the case. In fact, when they first split back in 2002, McFadden and Katona were often the subject of many a gossip newspaper's headline because they were always at each other's throats.

Now, however, the duo have put aside their differences for the sake of their children, and they all seem to get along now. 

Whatever the case, congratulations are in order for the happy couple!
