RTE weather presenter Teresa Mannion was a guest on 2FM's Breakfast Republic with Maguire and Keith Walsh this morning, when she mentioned that Storm was in fact born as Sharyn Uechtritz.

The tv producer, who took husband Ronan Keating's last name when they wed in 2015, shared a copy of her birth certificate on Instagram, with a lengthy caption aimed at Maguire. The fashionista said her parents were inspired by a Wilbur Smith novel, but made her first name Sharyn to prevent any teasing in school.

She then highlighted Hollywood celebrities who are recognised by their middle name.

"My birth certificate for@JenniferMaguire and anyone else who is curious about my name. My parents took the name "Storm" from one of the novels in Wilbur Smith's first trilogy (a famous South African journalist) because they loved it and have called me Storm since I was born. They made my first name "Sharyn" because they were worried that people might make fun of me... turns out they were right," she wrote.

"The use of middle names is not uncommon, here's some more people who go by their middle name #BradPitt#AshtonKutcher #DakotaFanning#ReeseWitherspoon #WillFerrell#PaulMcCartney #BruceWillis #Rihanna#GarthBrooks #RupertMurdoch#OrsonWelles."

"When you meet that person that ticks every box and makes you feel completely on top of the world every day just by doing nothing at all, that's incredible," she told Femail.

"Every day you feel like you are where you're meant to be and you've got so much to be grateful for. I'm just happy every day.

"To cement that in marriage and to know that we've got it right this time, you get so much strength out of that."

The famously affectionate couple continued their public love-in with Ronan echoing his wife's statement, saying their relationship is "magic", saying they've never been happier.

"It's having your best friend by your side, you know? It's quite incredible,' he said.

"When you feel like you can just be the person you want to be and breathe like you want to breathe. I know there's a lot of clichés in there but it's incredibly magic."
