Yvonne Keating stepping out with partner cameraman John Conroy
Yvonne Keating is on top of the world lately -- and it's all down to the man in her life.
The mother-of-three, who turned 40 over the weekend, told the Herald that she's more comfortable in her own skin these days because she feels "truly loved" by other half, John Conroy.
"In my personal life I'm extremely happy, I feel truly loved and I think then you worry less about how you look physically," Yvonne said.
"I'm very relaxed about turning 40 to be honest. You get to a stage where you just couldn't care less, there's nothing you can do about growing older anyway.
"And I realise the people in my life now don't care about any of that either. So I'm in a really happy place."
The model started dating cameraman boyfriend John in 2012, months after she and ex husband Ronan Keating announced the end of their 14-year marriage.
