|last update : 03-03-2009 08:52|
|Ronan Keating (born March 3, 1977 in Dublin, Ireland) is an Irish pop singer who has had hits with boyband Boyzone and as a solo artist.
Ronan Patrick John Keating grew up in Bayside, Dublin. His mother Marie died on February 2, 1998 from breast cancer; Ronan and his family have since set up a charity "The Marie Keating Foundation" to help find a cure for cancer.
Ronan married Irish model Yvonne Connolly (b. 1974) on April 30, 1998 on Nevis Island. They have three children - Jack (born March 15, 1999), Marie, known as Missy, (born February 18, 2001) and Alice (born September 7, 2005).
Keating joined the band Boyzone after being spotted by Louis Walsh when he turned 17; and later briefly co-managed fellow Irish boy band Westlife. Although Boyzone never officially disbanded, they had not released a single since 1999 but reformed in 2007. He has continued with his own solo career, clocking up a total of 14 UK top 10 singles as well as three UK Number One albums in addition to nearly two and a half million copies worldwide. Also in October Ronan was entered in the Guinness Book of Records for being the only artist ever to have 30 consecutive top 10 singles in the UK chart.
In 2008, Keating rejoined his Boyzone bandmates and completed a 29-date reunion tour. Boyzone released their comeback single on 29th September 2008, Love You Anyway, which was followed by a Greatest Hit album released on 13th October 2008.
