Westlife’s Brian McFadden unrecognizable after bee sting

A pop legend has shown off the shocking reaction he’s had to a bee sting.

Westlife singer Brian McFadden, 42, took to social media to show off the horrific aftermath of the sting, The Sun reports.

Lying in his hospital bed, Brian could be seen with a very swollen face and lips, and he wrote to his fans: “Stung by a bee and got an allergic reaction!! Owning that look! Free Botox and fillers!!!!!”

He could be seen in his hospital bed playfully singing ‘Sexy and I Know It’ by LMFAO.

Concerned fans and friends took to the comments to wish Brian a speedy recovery, with one person joking: “Looking swell,” and another said: “Omgggg feel better x”

A third person penned: “That’s awful hope you feel better soon! at least you’ve kept your sense of humor.”

Brian also shared separate photos of the timeline of his sting, from minor swelling to ending up in the hands of doctors.

He wrote: “The timeline of the sting to reaction. Still goin, ”and he showed how quickly the swelling came about, with his lips getting bigger and bigger and his eyes shrinking.

In the final snap, Brian can be seen with his thumbs up while gazing at the camera with a swollen face.

Brian shares children Molly Marie, 20, and 19-year-old Lilly-Sue McFadden with Kerry Katona and he has a daughter named Ruby Jean with his wife Danielle Parkinson.

He recently revealed that he missed out on a lot with his two daughters – and fought with his ex Kerry.

Opening up to Closer magazine, the Irish singer confessed that he regrets “not being there as much for his two eldest children”.

Brian said: “I was only a kid myself when I had Molly and Lilly, and I was at the height of my career in Westlife then – we were literally working 365 days a year, and there was no FaceTime so I couldn’t speak to the kids.

“I could only see them when I came home.

“So it was a lot harder and I missed out on a lot of the stuff that I would have loved to have seen with the girls.”

Luckily Brian and Kerry now have a better relationship, and the fact that the girls are older makes it easier to co-parent.

He added: “It’s very easy to co-parent now out children aren’t kids anymore. It was obviously a lot more difficult when they were growing up.”
