Keatings enjoy family day in Oz... but Ronan's not off hook just yet

Ronan Keating and wife Yvonne have been spending family days out together Down Under -- but sources say the crooner isn't out of the dog house yet.

The pair were photographed enjoying a family outing in Sydney as they took their three children Jack (11), Marie (9) and Ali (4) to Taronga Zoo as a treat.

But while they may appear to be putting on a united front, an insider has said that their main priority is to their young family.

"Yvonne is still not over what happened and all she's concentrating on right now is their children. Over time, she may be able to put everything behind her and try to move on but, for now, they are trying to ensure as little disruption to their family as possible," he said.


Ronan has jetted Down Under to help judge Australia's X Factor but will fly back to Europe next week as he's scheduled to play a series of gigs in the UK.

Yvonne has been pictured looking downcast and strained in recent weeks but this week saw her appearing far more upbeat as she and the children enjoyed their time in the Australian city.

Earlier in the week, she was spotted grinning from ear to ear as she enjoyed a family day out at a theme park while Ronan was busy shooting.

The estranged couple, who married in April 1998 on the Caribbean island of Nevis, surprisingly announced they were separating last May. They initially described their break-up as 'amicable', but within days it emerged that Ronan had an alleged liaison with gorgeous backing dancer Francine Cornell (26).

Since then, the pair's marriage has been on the rocks as they try to work out the best way forward for the sake of their children.

Stunning Yvonne made her first public appearance after her separation announcement at Westlife's Croke Park concert last month, where she told a pal how hard she found it to forgive what happened.

Ronan has now moved into an apartment in the Casino complex in Malahide while construction reaches its finishing stages on their new house in Abington estate.
