Congratulations to Ronan Keating and his wife Storm! The couple have welcomed their first child, a beautiful baby boy. Ronan, 40, has shared a gorgeous photo of his wife in hospital, cradling her new bundle of joy. The Boyzone singer wrote: "Incredibly excited to announce the arrival. We're all bursting with love for the newest little member of our family! Feeling very blessed to be daddy to this little man and the luckiest man in the world to be husband to such a strong, loving and warm-hearted woman and add to my beautiful family."
On Wednesday, Storm posted a photo of her hospital bag, ready and packed, complete with a cuddly toy. She wrote: "They say to have it ready just in case... #planfortheunexpected #hospitalbag #prettypink #gettingorganised." Fans had been speculating what the baby's gender is, correctly guessing that Storm was carrying a baby boy.

Earlier this week, the Australian TV producer appeared to let slip that she was expecting a son. She posted a photo of a babygro that Ronan's 11-year-old daughter Ali had given her and wrote: "So @_alikeating surprised us with this gift for her baby sister/brother haha. Making sure they know their roots #Irish #BabyGift #Cute #LittleLeprechaun #LoveIt."
But Storm appeared to have originally written "baby brother" in the caption, as fans picked up on her slipup. "Haha... might be a tad too late for the correction now #catoutthebag #babybrain #forgiven," wrote one Twitter follower. A second posted: "Haha, love this... Excitement must have got the better of you #babybrain." Another commented: "Storm you've given it away on Instagram tho."
The couple married in summer 2015
Father-of-four Ronan recently opened up to HELLO! Online about expecting his first child with Storm. He said: "She's going to be an incredible mother. She's a real Earth Mother. She's a very grounded woman, she's excited about being a mother and she has that natural ability and connection. I'm very excited to see her in that situation. We're over the moon, we cannot wait."
