Ronan Keating and wife Storm give first interview since pregnancy announced

by Ainhoa Barcelona

Storm Keating knows that her husband Ronan is going to be an incredible father to their first baby, and she only has to look at Ronan's relationship with his three children Missy, Jack and Ali to see the proof. During an appearance on Loose Women, the couple opened up about their happy baby news.

"I cannot tell you how excited I am," said Ronan, 39. The Boyzone singer added that his children – particularly 11-year-old Ali – cannot wait to meet their new brother or sister. "They're over the moon," he said. "Ali FaceTimes every day – how big is the bump, can I see the bump?'"

His wife Storm, who announced her pregnancy news in December, added: "She rubs the belly when it kicks. She has the most amazing questions, some of them are really grown up and I don't even know how to answer them." Storm added: "Every time I see him with his kids I fall more and more in love, he is the most incredible father."

"I cannot tell you how excited I am," said Ronan

The couple have recently returned from an idyllic holiday in Oman, where Storm showed off her growing baby bump in some gorgeous bikini snaps. But her pregnancy hasn't been all plain sailing. The Australian TV producer, who met Ronan when he was working on the Australian version of The X Factor, has suffered morning sickness. "I was on tour in September and we were driving from Plymouth to Bournemouth and we had to pull over in the motorway. She lay down in the hedge for 15 minutes," said Ronan. "And he just left me, he walked the dog," Storm chipped in. "I said, 'Don't touch me.'"

The couple's baby will be born in London

The couple have previously opened up to HELLO! about wanting to start a family. Mum-to-be Storm said she hoped to God it would "work out for us". Thankfully, the couple didn't find it "stressful" to conceive. "It wasn't stressful," said Ronan. "Exciting, yes. We have friends that had a schedule definitely and I can imagine how stressful that could be, and I think taking stress out of it is what makes the magic happen." Storm added: "Our lives area already so busy, we weren't in a major rush so we were like, 'Oh let's go with it' and we did."
