Inside new Love Island star Jack Keating’s family life – and close ties with dad Ronan and mum Yvonne
One of Love Island’s newest stars is RONAN Keating’s son Jack.
The tattooed boy is one of six boys joining the famous ITV show Casa Amor stage.
Here’s everything you need to know about Jack.
WHO IS JACK’S FAMILY?
The 23-year-old is the son of Boyzone star Ronan Keating and his mother is model and TV personality Yvonne Connolly.
With Jack, Ronan also shares his daughters Missy, 21, and Ali, 15, with his first wife Yvonne, whom he married from 1998 to 2015.
Missy is an influencer and also took part in Dancing With The Stars this year.
Speaking of Ronan, 45, before entering the villa, Jack explained: “He’ll be watching when I’m on it for sure.
“He buzzes for me, me and my dad are very close, we’re best friends.”
He added: “I’m very competitive for sure. I play rugby at home in Dublin and London so I definitely have that competitive edge.
“I may have to break up a couple. It won’t be the most ideal thing, but I have to do what’s best for me.”
They separated in 2015 and the singer had two children called Cooper and Coco with his second wife Storm.
HOW LONG HAS HE BEEN SINGLE?
The Dubliner has been single for about five years and is ready to mingle.
When asked why he was doing the show, he explained, “I’ve been single for a long time, probably 4 or 5 years now.
“I really missed that spark that I haven’t had in the dating scene, like I’ve been dating for a long time. I just thought why not?”
With his good looks and promise of “good conversation and a bit of Irish charm”, he’s likely to be a hit with the girls.
WHAT IS HE DOING?
Jack lives in London and works in social media marketing.
He plays rugby which will definitely help him when he tries to rob one of the girls.
Jack has revealed he is ready and willing to turn heads.
He said: “I may have to break up a couple. It won’t be the most ideal thing, but I have to do what’s best for me.”
WHERE DOES HE LIVE?
The Malahide boy divides his time between Dublin and London.
In 2018, Jack emigrated to Australia for a year.
Ronan shared the news with his followers and wished him luck on his adventure.
The singer said: “Well here it goes, my hero. I’m so proud, but the pain is like nothing else.
“I miss you so much already. I love you so much mate, you are and always will be MY boy. My first and one of my greatest accomplishments.
“I can’t wait to see you again and hear about all your adventures.”
