Ronan's wife Storm gave birth to Coco in March, and the family have been in lockdown together ever since. Former Boyzone star Ronan shared the happy news of Coco's birth on Instagram, posting a photo of his wife and youngest daughter alongside the caption: "Hello world. Spreading some good cheer at this time with the announcement of the safe delivery of our little girl Coco Knox Keating. Calmly arrived on 27/3/20. Mama and Baba are rocking #HappyTimes #KeatingClan #BabyKeating." 

Mum Storm shared a post of her own, a cute black-and-white selfie from her hospital bed. "A beautiful calm birth thanks to Claire Mellon and all the wonderful team at @theportlandhosp," Storm wrote alongside the image. "Thank you so much for taking such great care of us. Coco Knox Keating, born 27.03.20 #myheartcouldburst #ourlittlegirl @rokeating."

Ronan married Storm in 2015, and the pair also have three-year-old Cooper. Ronan also shares three older children with his ex-wife Yvonne: Jack, 20, Missy, 18, and Ali, 14, and we can imagine the older siblings are simply dying to meet little Coco.
