Jade Goody’s model son Bobby Brazier, 18, is seen after admitting he does not miss his late mother as he was not ‘with her long enough’
Jade Goody’s son Bobby Brazier stepped out in London on Friday after admitting he wasn’t with his late mother ‘long enough to miss her’ before her death.
Model Bobby, 18, was seen for the first since since discussing his mother’s death from cervical cancer aged 27 in 2009, when he was just five years old.
The son of Jade and Jeff Brazier wrapped up in a beige quilted coat which he wore over a black top during his outing in Leicester Square.

He wore a pair of blue denim jeans and carried a black leather holdall, and he held his phone encased in a bright orange cover in his other hand.
Bobby glanced back over his shoulder as he made his way through the West End while enjoying the spring sunshine.
His outing comes after he said he ‘misses what could’ve been’ with his late Big Brother star mother Jade.
Jade died when her sons Bobby and Freddie were just five and four.

Speaking to The Face, Bobby said he is frequently told by people who knew his mother what a ‘presence’ she had.
He said: ‘I don’t feel like I’ve missed out on a mum. It’s normal life to me. I’ve kind of spent more life without her than I did with her.’
When asked if he misses her, Bobby replied: ‘I don’t. Because I don’t feel like I was with her long enough to miss her.

‘I miss what could’ve been. I hear all the time she was such a presence, that she was one of a kind. What hurts most is that it wasn’t just losing anyone, it was losing Jade.’
Bobby, whose father is TV presenter Jeff, added that he would loved to have seen what other people saw in his mother when she found fame.
Bobby lives with his father, his stepmother Kate Dwyer and brother Freddie and is currently carving out a career as a model.

Jeff previously praised his sons for their resilience in dealing with Jade’s death at such a young age.
Speaking to The Sun in 2020, he said: ‘My gosh, they are just so resilient. Of course they were so young when she died and it pains me to think they never knew Jade in the same way we all did.
‘When Bobby landed his first fashion magazine cover [for Man About Town] he said he hoped his mum was looking down on him and smiling. And I’m sure she was.

‘When I look at Bobby and Freddie I see their mother’s colourful personality shining through. I mean, Jade was one of the biggest characters out there and the boys have both inherited that from her.’
Jeff paid tribute to Freddie at the end of September, on his 16th birthday.
Sharing a series of snaps of him surrounded by balloons, Jeff wrote a sweet caption to go alongside it: ‘It’s not for parents to define a child’s purpose but if this kid doesn’t help thousands of people somehow I’ll be very surprised.
‘I’d give anything to have @freddybraz1er’s sense of adventure, energy and enthusiasm to have fun and depth and sensitivity around caring for others.
‘Excited for him to get the academic phase done this year so he can unleash his creative gifts on the world.’
