Jack Tweed, the widower of Big Brother star Jade Goody, has said his late wife would 'one hundred million percent' want him to be in her sons’ lives.
But in 2008, she was diagnosed with cervical cancer which later was confirmed to have spread to other areas of her body, including her liver, bowel and groin.
Jade passed away in March the following year at the age of just 27, leaving behind her two kids with ex-partner Jeff Brazier, sons Bobby and Freddie – who are now aged 20 and 19, respectively.
One month before her death, she married partner Jack Tweed, who says he still sees her kids as his ‘stepsons’.
Speaking to The Mirror, he said he felt Jade would be delighted with ‘how well’ both of her sons are doing, having remained in touch with them over the years.
"Jeff has done an amazing job bringing them up,” Jack gushed.
“In my eyes and the way I care about them, I look at them as my stepsons, but I don't want to take credit for how Jeff has brought them up."
He added: "Jade would be over the moon how well they're both doing."
The 36-year-old has grown closer to Bobby over time, as they share TOWIE star James Argent as a mutual friend and also socialise in Essex.
"I see Bobby quite a bit,” he said, adding that they last crossed paths ‘three or four weeks ago’.
“He's become friends with Arg so whenever he sings at Sheesh, Bobby will come. He's come to a few parties. I've been out to lunch with him a couple of times too. Freddie I've seen a few times as well."
But while he occasionally bumps into the boys, he admitted he’d love to spend a day together properly – for old time’s sake.
He continued: “I'd like to take Bobby and Freddie out and be normal, just like we used to be, maybe one day. Jade would one hundred million per cent want me to be in their lives."
Jack also said he’s managed to maintain a relationship with Jade’s mum Jackiey.
"I still speak to her mum,” he said.
“Jackiey is a bit nuts, I love her, she's funny. I still catch up with her and she's come to every single charity event. Jade would be happy that I still talk to everyone."
