Jade Goody's boys are all grown up, and we're sure she's watching down on them and beaming with pride
Jeff Brazier is one of those celebrities who's kept his family away from the prying eyes of the media. The TV show host has been a single parent since the untimely death of his girlfriend Jade Goody in 2009. Overthe past eight years, the world has rarely gotten a glimpse of his boys – Bobby and Freddie. The two, who are now 14 and 13, don't have a Twitter, Instagram or a Facebook account and he prefers to keep it that way.
The British television celebrity earlier said he obtained a privacy order and banned unauthorized pictures of his sons just after Jade died. He wanted his sons to experience a normal life. Up until last year, he never shared pictures of his sons or offered a glimpse of his family, but even the strictest of dads make an exception sometimes. The 38-year-old dad of two uploaded a video of his son Bobby receiving a trophy after taking part in a game of football.
Dressed in a navy blue jersey, Bobby collected his trophy graciously and smiled for his proud dad who filmed this precious achievement. The doting dad was no doubt grinning away as he captured his eldest son on the field.
In the years after Goody's death, the TV host has devoted his time to raising his two kids. He has dinner with them every day, gets his sons to help him cook a meal and they often share stories during meal time. His Instagram posts reveal that he also spends a lot of time outdoors fishing or going swimming with his boys. On the outside, it may look like Frazier is a wonderful hands-on the parent with his sons, but it has been difficult for him.
He said, "If Jade hadn’t died, who knows what I’d be doing now. But I know a lot about the tough side of life and in the past few years, I’ve finally learned what I’m good at and what I’m here for," according to the Daily Mail.
The reality star met his girlfriend Goody on UK's Big Brother and they started dating in 2002. Their relationship ended in 2004 and he gained full custody of his sons after she died from cervical cancer.
Goody was one of Big Brother's most famous housemates. Her popularity earned her a place on the TV show's celebrity edition as well, where she was embroiled in a racist controversy with Indian actress celebrity Shilpa Shetty. Goody later traveled to India and apologized to Shetty. She also appeared on Big Boss, the Indian edition of Big Brother but left soon after she was diagnosed with cervical cancer.
In October 2009 it was reported that the number of women between 25 and 64 having Pap tests in the United Kingdom had grown by 12 percent during the previous year, an increase (after year-to-year declines since 2002) credited to Goody's public battle with cervical cancer.
After her death, Frazier turned into a life coach and a grief counselor. He's spoken about his difficult experience with his kids and their grief at losing their mom. For the past eight years, Frazier's life revolved around his kids but it seems like he's finally opened his heart to love. He is currently dating Kate Dwyer and told Mirror that they plan to start a family soon. He said his sons would make great elder brothers.
