BLUE singer Antony Costa has bought the mother of his baby daughter a $450,000 (GBP250,000) home in Wales.

Costa split from LUCY BOLSTER while she was still pregnant with their two-month-old child EMILIE.

But he is determined his daughter is offered the best possible upbringing.

He says, "Lucy's really keen to move there and it's a great place to bring up kids. I adore my daughter and see her whenever I can."

A British newspaper recently claimed Costa had left Bolster after embarking on an affair with his former girlfriend, soccer star David Beckham's sister JOANNE - but the ALL RISE hunk insisted he was merely helping her cope with the scandal surrounding Beckham's alleged infidelity.
