Keating to wed after twin proposal

Former Boyzone singer Ronan Keating is getting married again.

The 38-year-old Irish star proposed twice to Storm Uechtritz, 34 - first during a holiday in Thailand and then again in Ireland in front of his three children.

"Happiest day of my life. I asked @StormUechtritz to marry me and she said yeeeeeeeeeeasssss twice. Ha ha," he tweeted.

Keating split from Yvonne, the mother of his children, in 2011 and, according to reports, their divorce was finalised just last month.

He has been with TV producer Uechtritz for three years, after they met on the set of the Australian X Factor.

Keating told Hello! magazine that he proposed at dawn, during the couple's romantic getaway.

"Everyone on the island was fast asleep and there we were, just the two of us, witnessing the most beautiful sunrise we've ever seen," he said.

"We've been together a few years now and knew we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. I felt it was the right time."

When they returned to Ireland, Keating proposed again in front of his children - Jack, 16, Missy, 14, and nine-year-old Ali - with the engagement ring - an oval diamond set in a diamond-encrusted titanium band - which he helped design.

"We pulled out the ring again and she said yes. It was the most magical thing in the world," he said.

"Storm isn't just marrying me. There are four of us involved," he told the magazine.

The couple have previously described each other as soulmates, with Keating saying: ''I've never known anything like it - she's my best friend.''

Uechtritz has hinted about the possibility of having children together, saying: "We've talked about having a baby and it is a possibility for us, yes.''
