Congratulations are in order for Ronan Keating who has just become a father for the fifth time!

The Boyzone singer - who has Jack, 21, Missy, 19, and Ali, 14, from his first marriage to Yvonne Connolly and two-year-old Cooper with his wife Storm - welcomed a daughter named Coco Knox Keating into the world on Friday. 

Taking to Instagram to announce the exciting news by sharing a photo of the two of them with their newborn, Ronan wrote: "Hello world. Spreading some good cheer at this time with the announcement of the safe delivery of our little girl Coco Knox Keating.

The 38-year-old beauty previously admitted she had had a "really difficult" conversation with the 42-year-old star in the early days of their relationship because she wanted her own children while the 'Life Is a Roller Coaster' hitmaker was unsure if he wanted any more kids.

She said: "He wasn't sure if he wanted to have more children and that was really difficult for me because I always pictured having kids of my own and I come from a really large family.

"I went away and thought about it and I had to be really honest with myself. I spoke to my mum about it. There were tears.

"I knew in my heart that I could live the rest of my life without kids but I couldn't live without [Ronan]."

We can't wait to see the little one!
