Ferne McCann returned for series 6 of her ITVBe reality programme, documenting motherhood life with her daughter Sunday, as well as life as a TV personality and businesswoman.
From a mum to an aspiring actress, the reality star once again has given us a close look at her personal and professional life.
The series featured Ferne’s mother Gilly, as well as her sister Sophie and grandfather. However, viewers are wondering why Ferne’s father didn’t take part in First Time Mum.
Who are Ferne McCann’s parents?
Ferne’s parents are Gilly and Simon McCann. The reality star was born in Brentwood, Essex.
It’s very likely that Ferne has some Irish connections since her family surname McCann comes from the Gaelic word ‘Mac Cana’ which means ‘son of Cana’.
In a previous interview with Belfast Telegraph, Ferne explained that her father believes their roots come from Ireland. She said:
You don’t meet many McCanns in England. I asked my dad and he says we might have an Irish connection way back. I’m so excited to see Northern Ireland.
Why didn’t Simon appear on First Time Mum?
While Ferne’s mum Gilly has been actively appearing on morning chat shows and reality programmes with Ferne, Simon has stayed away from the media spotlight.
It’s unknown why Simon didn’t appear on First Time Mum, but it’s very likely that he prefers living a more private life.
In the same interview with Belfast Telegraph, Ferne revealed that both her mum and dad “are so proud” of her career, but she said she’s closer to her mother Gilly who is pretty much like her best friend.
