THREE generations of women in Gerry Ryan’s life got together to help launch the Marie Keating Foundation's Breast Cancer AwarenessMonth.
His three daughters Lottie, Babette and Bonnie joined their mam Morah, and her mother Noreen to do their bit for the charity.
For the first time Gerry’s youngest daughter Babette (13) stepped out in front of the cameras.
The teenager, who was just ten years old when her dad passed away, showed she has inherited her mum’s dark good looks and her dad’s smile as she posed with her sisters, television presenter Lottie and singer Bonnie.
Listeners to the Gerry Ryan show, often heard Gerry referred to her as his “baby” and recount stories of her first day at school, and first holy communion.
She was photographed at his funeral clutching his one-eyed teddy 'Alowishes', which had been Gerry's own teddy growing up as a boy before he passed it onto her.
A host of well-known faces gathered at Marks and Spencer on Dublin's Grafton Street yesterday to launch the Marie Keating Foundation's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Offering a helping hand were 'Celebrity Apprentice' boss and businesswoman Caroline Downey, who brought along her daughter Storm; RTE host Blathnaid Ni Chofaigh and her mother Nan; and author and columnist Yvonne Joye with her mother Cora Reidy.
