Ronan Keating, 46, gushes over first grandchild as son Jack welcomes daughter

Ronan Keating is embracing being a grandfather as his son Jack Keating welcomed a baby girl.

The 23-year-old, who appeared on the 2022 series of Love Island eight months ago, made the surprise announcement of his new arrival on Thursday.

Without confirming the identity of the child’s mother, he shared a snap to Instagram of him delicately cradling his newborn alongside the caption: ‘Welcome to the world my little [princess emoji].’

The birth of Jack’s daughter makes Ronan a grandfather at the age of 46, alongside his first wife Yvonne Connolly, who has become a grandmother at 49.

Ronan appears to be loving being a grandad as he was among the first to congratulate his son and gush over his first child.

Writing under Jack’s sweet post, the If Tomorrow Never Comes singer wrote: ‘Little cutie,’ along with a red heart.

Plenty issued their own congratulations towards Ronan, with one writing: ‘Congratulations on becoming a grandad,’ and another adding becoming a grandparent was ‘the best feeling in the world.’

Reality star Jack was one of Casa Amor 2022’s bombshells but went home shortly after entering the villa in July as none of the OG islanders chose to couple up with him.

When it was revealed that Jack, who works in social media marketing, was joining the Love Island line-up, his dad Ronan admitted at the time that he felt ‘nervous as hell’.

Ronan shares Jack with his ex Yvonne, who he was married to from 1998 to 2015 and with whom he also shares daughters Missy, 22, and Ali, 18.

He remarried in 2015 to Storm Uechritz and have since welcomed son Cooper, five, and daughter Coco, two.
