BONNIE Ryan, the daughter of late broadcaster Gerry Ryan, is set to release her debut music video.

She filmed the video for her catchy single Like We Do’ in Dublin with director Chelsea Smith.

The 21-year-old aspiring singer/songwriter’s two stylish sisters tagged along on the day of shooting to watch their sister’s video debut.

Older sister Lottie and youngest Ryan girl, Babs, were on hand to provide moral support but it looked like the singer didn’t need it.

She looked completely at ease singing to camera and posing against exposed brickwork.

Behind the scenes pictures show the three sisters posing with the full crew after the shoot.

Bonnie looks delighted with her efforts and her director said afterwards that they all “had a blast” on the shoot.

CONFIDENCE

Her confidence as a performer was heightened this year when pop guru Louis Walsh tipped her as the next big music talent to come out of Ireland.

The gorgeous music student wore a stunning black dress (inset) that she nabbed from an exclusive Dublin boutique - but as a nominee for Most Stylish Newcomer in this year’s VIP Style Awards, her daring video wardrobe comes as no great surprise.

The Dublin talent has set her sights exceptionally high, she wants to become Ireland’s answer to superstar Rihanna and her video looks set to put her firmly on course.

Bonnie is an old hand when it comes to performing. At just 14 her band Lady Nada supported Westlife during a Dublin gig.

The Ryan children have all inherited some of their famous dad’s drive and ambition.

Oldest sister Lottie nabbed her very own radio show earlier this year and presents the Early, Early breakfast show on 2fm. The journalism graduate worked for the station as a showbiz reporter before being given her own timeslot.

And eldest son Rex Ryan has set his sights on a career on stage. The actor has already starred in a music video for This Club with model Roz Purcell.
