Like mother, like daughter: Ali Keating is a natural in first modelling job with Yvonne Connolly
Ali Keating is following in her family's famous footsteps.
Yvonne Connolly and ex-husband Ronan Keating's 10-year-old daughter took centre stage in her first photocall with her mother, the latest in her family to choose life in the spotlight.
Yvonne, a former top model and her daughter looked at ease in front of the camera as they promoted Old El Paso's new Mini Soft Taco range in their makeshift kitchen.
Ali isn't the only Keating child to show an interest in the spotlight - her big sister Missy (15) is a successful actress who began her career at the same age as Ali, but is now taking a backseat to focus on her secondary school studies, while Jack (17) recently completed work experience with The Ian Dempsey Show on Today FM and is eyeing up a radio career.
The mother-of-three, who also guest hosts The Seven O'Clock Show on TV3, said: "The ones you think will (get into showbiz) sometimes don't ... and the ones like Jack, who I think never will, he worked with Ian Dempsey on the Breakfast Show for work experience.
"He has no interest in performing but as soon as he did that he was like, 'Oh my god, I want to be Ian Dempsey'."
The family are fresh from a trip to Los Angeles for business and pleasure, mixing in meetings with some sunshine.
Connolly will erturn to the City of Angels next month where she will attend the Emmys with boyfriend John Conroy, who is nominated for cinematography for his work on Luther.
