So much pride: Storm Keating opens up about family life with husband Ronan

Storm Keating lights up when she talks about her baby boy, one-year-old Cooper.

The 37-year-old welcomed her first child in 2017 with her husband, former Boyzone member Ronan Keating -  and it seems that motherhood is agreeing with her.

She said, "having a baby was the greatest blessing of my life.''

She continued, "I had to have an emergency C-section and I look at my scar – and I know scars aren’t meant to be pretty - but I look at it with so much pride. My body’s changed, I’ve changed, our life has changed, but I think it’s just the greatest thing in the world."

Ronan has three children from his marriage to Yvonne Connolly - 17-tear-old Missy, 13-year-old Ali and ten-year-old Jack.

Storm admits that although her body ahs changed since pregnancy and giving birth, she has more respect for herself and admiration for what she went through.

She said,“I probably feel more comfortable in my skin now than I did before.''

“I just feel a bit more like I go with it in life, there are so many more important things than focusing in on how you look, how you dress ... I’ve got this gorgeous little boy and the greatest husband in the world – I’m blessed. I’m not perfect, my body’s not perfect, but I’m pretty happy.”

Is another baby on the cards for the couple?

Both said they "definitely would" like to have another, but not right now.

Ronan said, ''we're really enjoying Cooper and his age. I don’t think we’d want to change anything with that but yeah, of course – please God – down the line.''

Quality family time is what's most important to them, as they have to juggle it around Ronan's tours and co-parenting with Yvonne.

He said, ''it wouldn't be easy all the time - but you try for the children always to just remain calm and get through it.''

He continued, '' raising those children from separate places, two separate views . . . once that breaks down your opinions change and your version of events changes, so you have to be able to manage that and to make sure the children are the priority.”
