Singer Ronan Keating has spent his first night back at the family home following the surprise announcement last week that he was separating from his wife Yvonne.
And friends last night claimed that the pair are “very much back on track” amid hope of a quick reconciliation.
Ronan returned to Dublin on Monday but only spent an hour with his wife at their Malahide home before he took the couple's three children to the luxury K Club golf resort in Kildare where they spent the night.
But the 33-year-old returned to the family home shortly after 5pm yesterday, and was briefly photographed with his 36-year-old wife.
Driving a black Range Rover, the singer had appeared unshaven and wore dark sunglasses as he drove through the automatic gates outside his luxury home at 5.15pm, along with two of his children.
A half-an-hour earlier Yvonne had emerged from their home to walk the couple's Bernese mountain dogs. She declined to comment on her relationship.
However, sources close to the couple said that things were “very much back on track” and the pair had been in contact by phone when Ronan was in Kildare with the children.
Last night the couple were photographed together when Yvonne picked up one of their children from a neighbouring house, and stopped outside the gates of her home so Ronan could collect the child from the car.
