“We’re all bursting with love!" Ronan Keating and wife Storm welcome their first baby

A HUGE congratulations to the happy family!

Ronan Keating and wife Storm have welcomed their first child, a beautiful baby boy.
The 40-year-old took to Instagram to share the couple’s happy news with a stunning photo of Storm cradling their new bundle of joy.
"Incredibly excited to announce the arrival. We're all bursting with love for the newest little member of our family!” the Boyzone star wrote.
He added: “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."
The duo are yet to release any further information as to the baby’s height, weight or all-important moniker.

Apart from the occasional bump snap, Storm and Ronan managed to keep the majority of details surrounding their little one’s arrival under wraps.
That was until the new-mum (luckily for us) slipped up on social media just days before their baby boy’s grand entrance.
Taking to Instagram, the Australian-born beauty shared an image of a sweet gift for the bub given to them by Ronan’s 11-year-old daughter Ali from a previous marriage.
In a now-edited caption, she 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."
The 35-year-old had originally written “baby brother” before making her correction, but the blunder was quickly spotted by eagle-eyed followers.
"Love this... Excitement must have got the better of you #babybrain," commented one fan.

The newest member of the Keating clan is the X-Factor Australia host’s fourth child, while it marks the first for Storm.
The exciting news was revealed back in December in a blog post on the producer’s site.
"On the 17th August in 2010, my husband and I became friends," she penned.
"On the same day five years later we became husband and wife. We're now very excited to announce that a year later (and again to the exact date) we became parents-to-be!! And so THAT'S why I passed on the mulled wine," she joked.
"Words cannot describe how overwhelmed with happiness we are."

Ronan and Storm first met through the talent show in 2010.
In August 2015, the couple tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in East Lothian, Scotland.
The “When You Say Nothing At All” hitmaker was previously married to Yvonne Keating for 17 years. Now, they share their three kids Jack, 17, Missy, 15, and Ali, 10.
Storm parted ways with her ex-husband Sydney financial director, Tim Ivers, in April 2012.
Congratulations again to the happy family!
