Hunky singer Nicky Byrne, 22, of Irish boy band Westlife, says he plans to marry and his long-term girlfriend, business student Georgina Ahern, the daughter of Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern, reports Reuters. The two have known each other since they were 12. “I went home that day and told mum: ‘I’ve found the girl I will marry,’ ” said Byrne. No wedding date has been announced. In fact, it could be years, Byrne suggested. “I want to put 100% of my energies into Westlife, and then, if we take a break or slow down, I can get married and start a family.”
