Ronan Keating's other children haven't met newborn sister Coco amid lockdown


Ronan Keating revealed his other children have yet to meet his newborn daughter Coco as they’re in Ireland amid the coronavirus lockdown.

The 43-year-old singer and his wife Storm, 38, welcomed their second child together in March right after the lockdown started.

However, the star said his children from his first marriage to Yvonne Connolly, Jack, 21, Missy, 19, and Ali, 14, aren’t able to meet her yet as they are isolating in Ireland.

Ronan, who lives in Barnes, said: ‘None of Coco’s brothers or sisters could be there, but I was there, it was different because of the circumstances we were in, but it was very special. 

‘Luckily Storm’s mum was here. Mine was with Coop in the house, she got here before lockdown, but it was amazing Coco she is flying.’

He continued on Good Morning Britain: ‘The older kids are in Ireland, they’ve been over here when lockdown began, but please god if things settle soon, they’ll be able to get over and see their new baby sister.’

Ronan and Storm are already parents to two-year-old son Cooper.

Storm announced back in October that she’s pregnant with the couple’s second child, with the couple sharing their news on Magic FM, after he phoned into the studio.

Joking with co-presenter Harriet Scott and Tom Price, Ronan said ‘we have a story that actually matters’ before excitedly announcing: ‘Storm and I are having a baby!’

Coco’s arrival comes just weeks after Storm jokingly told Ronan that he’d be getting the snip after having five children. 

‘That’s five kids in total now, so that’s enough, we’re going to have to get Ro to have the snip,’ Storm told OK! Magazine. 

Ronan responded: ‘What?! Hold on, wait a minute…’ 

You better watch out for Storm, Ronan.
