Keatings reunite for family party

FORMER couple Ronan and Yvonne Keating were reunited for their youngest daughter's birthday after both publicly confirmed they are in new relationships.

Writing in her column for VIP Magazine this week, model mum-of-three Yvonne (38) told of how she and her estranged husband went to great effort to celebrate the birthday of their youngest child Ali.

Yvonne is now in a relationship with cameraman John Conroy, while Ronan has confirmed that he is in a relationship with Australian TV producer Storm Uechtritz (31).

But the former couple have vowed to remain close for their three children -- Jack (13), Missy (11) and seven-year-old Ali.

"Although Ronan and I have both moved on from our marriage, we remain friends and spend time together as a family," Yvonne said in this week's VIP.


"We put a lot of effort into Ali's party, which we celebrated at the house with all her friends.

"Ronan then spent the weekend with the children before heading back to Australia for X Factor," she said.

Ronan and Yvonne publicly announced their marriage had ended in April of this year -- but it is believed they called it quits six months beforehand, opting to keep the news private.

Following the announcement, it emerged that Yvonne had started a relationship with cameraman dad-of-six John Conroy, whom she met on the film set of Dark Touch, which stars her daughter Missy.

In her column, she also announced that Missy had landed a role in new film The Sea, which is scheduled to begin filming this month.
