BLUE star Anthony Costa has decided to "be selfish" by putting his boring band commitments on hold so he can be at home for the birth of his first child.

The ALL RISE singer has decided to focus on his family when fiance LUCY BOLSTER gives birth in May next year (04) - something he's more than happy to do because he's "tired" of the monotony surrounding the boyband.

He says, "I get homesick. As they years have gone I've grown tired of singing the same song, doing the same TV, the same radio. I'm going to be selfish for once.

"I've told the band I don't want to do anything for at least two weeks around the birth. It's the most amazing thing that's happened to me, so for once I'm going to think about myself."
