Jade Goody has a dying wish – she wants her two boys, Bobby Jack, 5, and Freddie, 4, to have two fathers – their biological dad, Jeff Brazier (her ex) and her husband, Jack Tweed. She wants both men to play an active role in the boys’ lives.
Jade, who has only weeks, possibly days, to live, has struck a deal with her ex-boyfriend Jeff Brazier to allow her husband Jack Tweed to continue to be in their sons’ lives. Her ex has agreed to allow this.
Said Jade, “I do want Jack to continue seeing them as they have grown close. But Jeff will have full custody.
“We have all agreed it’s best for the boys. I’m sure Jeff will be a great full-time dad, and my mum, Jack’s mum and Jack will all be doing everything to make the boys’ lives as happy as possible.”
Max Clifford, Goody’s publicist, said, “Jeff has been a good dad and she knows that Jack can be a great dad too. Hopefully between the two of them and Jeff and Jade’s families they are going to be very well loved and looked after.”
That must give Jade peace of mind – that her boys will have two men in their lives who will love and care for them and lots of extended family to make sure her babies have everything they need. It’s sad that they can’t have their mom to watch them grow but at least Jade has a great support system in place for when she passes.
