ASTON Merrygold got his organising hat on early this year to plan how he would spoil fiancée Sarah Richards for Mother’s Day.
The former JLS singer was away from Sarah, 37, and their two boys Grayson, three, and Macaulay, almost one ahead of Mother’s Day but that does not mean his family was not on his mind.

“I’m trying to be ahead of the curve. I’ve been away for a couple of weeks [filming my new BBC show] so I’ve sent her flowers to know I’m thinking of her and that she’s doing such a good job as a mummy to our boy,” Aston told The Sun in an exclusive chat.
“I’ve got to prepare two surprises now – for my mum and Sarah from our two boys.”
He added: “I’m properly going to get my chef’s hat on again and cook some favourite foods.
“Japanese is one of her favourites so I’m going to have to dust off the apron and make some high quality food. She’s absolutely worth it!”

Aston, who released his new single Overboard last month managed to get home to pamper Sarah on her big day.
She showed off Aston’s efforts on her Instagram stories including cards from the boys, sweat treats and a full English breakfast.
Aston also took to the platform to celebrate Sarah, her mum and his mum in a sweet post.
“Happy Mother’s Day to these absolute legends ❤️” he wrote.

“Everything I am, have & love in life I owe it all to these amazing women! I love you!
“Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums out there & you dads doubling up we see you.”
Last year, Aston and his JLS bandmates were forced to postpone their 10-year in the making reunion tour due to the Covid pandemic, but they recently revealed to The Sun that they’re heading back into the studio.

They’ve signed a new deal with record giant BMG which will see them release new music this year to coincide with the rescheduled tour.
And in a Covid-friendly Bizarre special via Zoom, the lads Simon Boyle me how they have already begun recording the record and are hoping to team up with a string of top writers, performers and producers including Ed Sheeran to get it finished.
Aston said: “The beauty of it this time is there aren’t any expectations. We’re in this because we do love it, so we can just enjoy it.
“We had a conversation and it’s going to happen. It’s been as easy as that for us — more so than for other bands in history.”
