Ronan Keating's heartbreak as wife Yvonne finds love
Monday 13 August 2012
Pop star Ronan Keating has been left devastated after news emerged that his estranged wife has found love with a new man.
Yvonne Keating, who originally stuck by her husband after discovering he had cheated on her with a backing dancer, is said to be dating cameraman and father-of-six John Conroy.
The pair met at the beginning of the year on the set of a film starring the Keatings’ 11-year-old daughter Missy.
John, who left his wife of 20 years in January, has been spotted embracing Yvonne during a romantic break in Ireland.
The 38-year-old Irish beauty, who married Ronan on a Caribbean island in 1998, announced the pair had ended their 14-year marriage in April after trying for months to make things work.
At the time mum-of-three Yvonne tweeted: “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.”
A source told a British newspaper: “The news that Yvonne has found love again has hit Ronan really hard. He was desperate to try to make her give him another chance, but by cheating on her like he did, Ronan broke the trust that once existed between them.”
Ronan had a two-month affair with dancer Francine Cornell in 2010.
Speaking about the split, Ronan said: “I missed Yvonne, I missed my children, and I made a mistake. We tried to get over it, but we couldn’t, and now I’m a single man again.”
“Being on my own is all new to me. I was young when I got married – just 21. So to be suddenly on my own, at 35, is weird.”
