Vogue Williams opens up about final moments with late dad

Vogue Williams has opened up about her final moments with her late dad.

The Irish star’s father Freddie passed away in 2010 when she was 24 following a stroke after an operation.

The Dublin native has admitted she wished she “could have said more to him.”

Speaking on Elizabeth Day’s podcast How To Fail, she was asked if there was anything left unsaid before his death.

She confessed: “I don’t know what else I could have said to him at that age because he died when I was in my 20’s.”

“I don’t think that you are mature enough to really think, right, ‘I need to sit down and have a really deep conversation with someone’.”

“Do I wish I could have said more to him? I probably do, but when someone is going in for a serious operation you don’t say stuff like, ‘Just so you know I really love you’, because then they are like, ‘Why are you saying this to me?'”

The 38-year-old continued: “I don’t think you should do that when someone is unwell, I think it would make them nervous.”

“No one wants to think they are going to die.”

“You don’t want to scare somebody, so that’s why you say, ‘I’ll see you when you get out’.”

She added: “He knew I loved him I spent a lot of time with him, we were really close particularly in our later life, for me he was a great dad, I wouldn’t say he was a great husband to my mom.”

The mum-of-three added that since his passing, she has made an effort to always tell her mam she loves her.

Vogue continued to tell host Elizabeth: “I have resigned myself to the fact there will always be things kind of unsaid in my family.”

“There are things that probably could do with a conversation, but with that said, my family are also my best friends.”

“He was 68, he was young, but he was always unwell because he smoked a lot,” she said, speaking about her dad.

“There was a high chance it would just burst on its own and he would die, or they could try and do an operation.”

She confessed his death “happened so quickly” after his operation.

“We were just like, ‘listen, there’s a chance here you’re going to be totally fine, you won’t have to worry, it’ll be gone’.”

“He woke up from the operation, but when he came to and when I was talking to him, I was just thinking, he’s saying weird stuff to me that he would never say.”

“And then it turned out that he had had a stroke on his brain.”

Her dad was then put into a coma, however, sadly “he never came out of it.”
