Shane Richie’s rarely seen daughters join their dad on red carpet

Shane Richie was joined by his two daughters in what was a rare family outing as they attended the press night performance of Elf The Musical in London earlier this week.

TheEastEnders star,who’s best known for playing fan-favourite Alfie Moon on the BBC One soap, was all smiles as he took a trip to The Dominion Theatre in the West End alongside his two daughters Lolita and Romani-Skye.

As they posed on the red carpet on Thursday, the 58 year old doting dad wrapped a protective arm around his daughters as the trio kicked off their festive celebrations.

For the occasion, the actor kept things casual as he opted for a head to toe black look featuring a utility jacket, pair of dark jeans and a crossbody bag.

His 11 year old daughter Romani-Skye matched in a similar coordinated black look which featured a long sleeve top and a leather style skirt.

Meanwhile Lolita, 14, opted for a white corset top with a botanical print as well as a pair of smart black white leg trousers.

Father of five Shaneshares Lolita and Romani-Skye with his wife Christie Goddard and the pair are also parents to 16 year old Mackenzie Blue.

Having spent four years at the Italia Conti School in London, Christie is no stranger to the world of showbiz and she first met soap star Shane in 2001, when they shared the stage in a Jack and the Beanstalk pantomime.

After dating for about four years, Shane proposed in 2005 and they tied the knot two years later – and it’s clear that they’re still as loved-up as ever.

Back in April, Shane took to Instagram to gush over his beloved wife as he wished his “Rock” the happiest of birthdays.

Sharing a sweet snap of Christie, he wrote: “Happy B’day to @christie.richie this special lady who’s the Rock, soul and heartbeat of our family , she’s everything & more ! [heart emoji] beautiful in every way [heart emoji] WE LOVE YOU x.”

Elsewhere, the actor is also the father of 33 year old Shane Jr. and 29 year old Jake Roche, who he shares withLoose Women starColeen Nolan.

Shane and Coleen were married for nine years but split in 1999. The pair have remained on good terms following their divorce over two decades ago and continue to show support for their children.

Most recently,they both attended the wedding of their son Shane Jr over the summer, with Coleen opening up about the day.

When asked on Loose Women if Shane got tearful on his son’s wedding day, Coleen said: “Shane's just Shane. He was loving it but he wasn't emotional. He looked at me as though I was mad.”
