Ronan Keating confirms split with wife
Monday 02 April 2012
Ah, it's always sad when a marriage comes to an end, especially when there are kids involved but that is what has happened to Ronan Keating and his wife, Yvonne after 14 years of marriage.
The pair confirmed the split on their Twitter accounts. In simultaneous announcements on their official Twitter pages, they revealed they had kept their split private for the sake of their three children.
The couple have been through a turbulous couple of years after Ronan's affair with back-up dancer Francine Cornell was revealed in 2010. Yvonne, 37, revealed that the pair had actually been split since late last year. She wrote: Yvonne, 37, wrote: 'Sadly,our marriage ended late last year. We kept this news private to give everybody involved time to adjust.Thank you for your support x.'
Ronan, 35, then tweeted: 'Sadly our news is true. Thank u all for your support. Yvonne and I still love and care for each other and want to protect our kids. X.'
According to reports, the couple had tried to save their marriage for their children, but it seems that Yvonne found it too hard to get over her husbands infidelity.
Yvonne found out about her husbands affair after she found out he had a secret phone where she found intimate messages to and from the two - she then proceeded to call Francine, who told her: 'We're in love.'
A source said at the time: 'There were some quite suggestive texts that left little to the imagination. Yvonne went ballistic and told him it was over there and then.'
After begging for forgiveness, Ronan was let back into the family home in Dublin with their children Jack, 13, Marie, 11 and Ali, six.
He said: 'I make mistakes. I'm definitely not comfortable with the mistakes that I've made and I'm still trying to resolve them.
He said at the time: 'I did make a mistake. And I'm still trying to make up for that. I love my wife and my family is everything to me. Right now I’m trying to be the man I want to be. I'm trying to get there.
'The people I love the most have been hurt - my family. I take the blame for that. Everyone is responsible for their own actions.'
We wish them both the very best
