NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Jack Keating, son of ex-Boyzone star Ronan Keating, is now a father. The 23-year-old ‘Love Island’ star shared the surprising news on her Instagram on Thursday night. “Welcome to the world my little princess,” he captioned the first photo he posted of his newborn daughter.
Since leaving the “Love Island” villa last summer, Jack has made no mention of a romantic relationship and the child’s mother remains unidentified. It is the first time that Ronan, 46, a father of five, has become a grandfather, calling the newborn a “little cutie”.

Storm, Ronan’s second wife and Jack’s birth mother responded to the post by adding a string of heart emojis. The Irish singer and his ex-wife, Yvonne Connolly, 48, share eldest son Jack, as well as Missy, 22, and Ali, 17, who were born during their 12-year marriage, Daily Mail reports.
Other followers commented, “You are going to be the most amazing dad, love you Jack xxx.” Many more started pouring in comments like “Congratulations bro!!” “Awww congratulations” “Congratulations Jack, you’re going to be the best dad” “I couldn’t be happier. So proud of you”, and so on.
MailOnline has contacted Jack’s rep for comment. Jack recently claimed, “I’m still single and ready to mingle” in an interview with The Independent. “I’m on Hinge [the dating app], but I don’t use it too seriously. I dive into it once in a while and enjoy being single,” he continued. “People think my account is fake. I’m verified, but they still believe I’m a catfish who stole someone else’s photos. I’m like, ‘Trust me – I’m the real deal.’
