Earlier this year, Ronan opened up to HELLO! Online about what kind of mum Storm will be. "She's going to be an incredible mother," said Ronan. "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."
