Loved-up Yvonne takes romantic mini-break as children visit Oz


LOVED-UP Yvonne Keating (37) has jetted off for a romantic mid-term break with her beau John Conroy (43), the Diary can reveal.

The glamorous socialite is spending the week sightseeing and relaxing in the picturesque city of Liege as she takes advantage of having a few days to herself.

Her three children with former husband Ronan Keating, Jack (13), Missy (11) and Ali (seven) are over in Australia as they enjoy some quality time with their dad.

And their well-known mum revealed how she intended to travel to Belgium "with a friend" for a week. She said how she "plans on keeping busy" while her children are Down Under.

Determined to make the most of her trip, she also asked for recommendations on Twitter for places to eat and things to do while she's over there.

She obviously found some restaurants that fit the bill for her relaxing holiday, having posted up a picture of a converted eatery called Le Labo 4.

Yvonne wrote: "Table for two in an old science lab."

Her new romance with her cameraman boyfriend is obviously going swimmingly, given that her talented daughter Missy also had a part in his new project The Sea.

A big-screen adaptation of the novel of the same name written by the Man Booker-prize winner John Banville, it filming recently finished after five weeks in Wexford.

It saw Missy landing her second screen production this year, following on from a leading role in Dark Touch, which is where Yvonne met John.

The Laois native was also the Director of Photography on her youngster's latest project, which stars IFTA-nominated actor Ciaran Hinds.

The smitten couple have been dating since February.

Their low-profile romance was revealed last August after they were snapped enjoying a sunny weekend in London.

The father-of-six has been described as the "perfect tonic" for Yvonne since her split from Ronan in 2011.

Ronan, who is currently working on Australian X Factor, has also given the relationship his seal of approval, saying that he's "delighted" for his former wife. "I'm really happy for her that she's in a great place, and she deserves to be. You know, I'm in a really great place and I've found my feet and doing my thing," he said.

The Boyzone singer has struck up a romance with TV producer Storm Uechtritz.
