Ronan relishes quality family time as his kids touch down in Australia

RONAN Keating's children get to enjoy some perks -- and spending half-term in Australia is a major one.

Jack (13) and seven-year-old Ali were delighted to be reunited with their dad at Sydney Airport.

Sister Missy was unable to travel with her siblings as she is currently filming, but will head Down Under once her schedule is clear.

Ronan tweeted that he missed his eldest daughter and couldn't wait to see her.

"Great day with the kids. But missing my Missy as she is still on set shooting The Sea. But Sydney bound soon."

Since they arrived Ronan has spent lots of time with his children and plans on taking them go-karting with friend and former Westlife star Brian McFadden.

Brian and Ronan have become firm friends since moving to Australia. In fact, Brian will support Ronan on his Fired Tour of Australia next year.

Ronan (35) will also be introducing the kids to new girlfriend and X Factor producer Storm Uechtritz (31). Ronan separated from his wife Yvonne (38) earlier this year after a 14-year marriage.

Last week, Yvonne admitted that she had been finding it difficult to "even think" about her kids leaving her alone in Dublin to spend time with her ex and his girlfriend.

"I will miss them terribly," the former model said.

"I can't even think about it. But I will use the opportunity to reconnect with family and friends and to pursue other work projects."
