Back in 2021, fans were shocked when Ronan shared photos alongside his son, with the young adult looking just like his father back in his Boyzone days.

"This is my world right here. All my babies celebrating our #emeraldandivyball21 what an incredible night raising over 890K for @cr_uk now in our 14th year a proud night for the Keating family raising over 10mil in total. Thank you to everyone that has donated over the years", penned Ronan.
