She may be one fifth of a popular girl band, but Una Healy makes sure she spends enough quality time with her daughter.
The Saturdays singer was spotted frolicking in the pool with her eight-month-old girl Aoife Belle, taking some much needed time off her gruelling promotion schedule in Los Angeles.
And the redhead star looked every inch the doting mother as she splashes around in the water with her little girl.

The 31-year-old showed off her toned and tanned post-baby body in a turquoise bikini with gold embellishments and smiled as she dipped her baby girl carefully into the water.
But little Aoife Belle didn't look convinced by the swimming adventure and appeared a little uncertain as her mother tried to teach her how to swim.
Dressed in a cute and colourful floral bathing suit, the tiny tot didn't seem to be too keen on the water, even as she splashed around with an inflatable toy duck.

Despite her frowning baby, Una looked like she was having a ball as she spend the day doing fun stuff with her little mini-me.
The pretty singer and her daughter spend the last few months in Los Angeles, where they were joined by her band members as they tried to take over the US charts.
The group worked on a new album and also filmed their latest reality TV show, which will air on US entertainment channel E! next year.
