Ronan Keating's wife Yvonne 'forgives him'
RoannKeating is ready to rebuild his life back home after being reconciled with wife Yvonne.
The singer revealed they are a “happy family” again after their time in Australia saved their marriage.
The couple will fly home in the coming days after patching things up during the month-long stay down under.
Ronan (33) said: “We've been left to our own devices, but we are now a happy family. It's all good, thank God.”
He said that Yvonne (36) is now prepared to give him a second chance after a rollercoaster few months in which it was revealed that he had an affair with dancer Francine Cornell.
The Boyzone star posted a message on his Twitter page yesterday which reveals he is now ready to come home.
“Finished all the Promo and initial filming For X factor OZ. Has been fantastic. Next step judges homes,” he wrote. And in a further indication that things are getting back on track for the couple, one of Ronan’s fellow X Factor judges has revealed that Yvonne goes to work with him everyday.
Kyle Sandilands, who is a controversial radio DJ in Australia, said: “Ronan has had his wife Yvonne and kids on set every day and that has been wonderful.
“Except for the kids, I probably could do without them,” he laughed.
He went on to describe Ronan as a “genuine guy and great father”. “He handles them well,” he said.
The comments follow weeks of speculation that the couple were “talking things through” and trying to get their marriage back on track.
Friends had always believed they had one of the strongest marriages in showbusiness but it was rocked by the revelations that the affair had gone on for seven months.
An official statement was issued on May 20 stating that the couple had separated after 12 years of marriage, but added that their main concern was for Jack (11), Marie (9) and Ali (4).
However, weeks later it was confirmed that Yvonne and the children would accompany Ronan to Australia for the duration of his stint on the X Factor.
