New grandad Ronan Keating looks bleary-eyed as he leaves his birthday

New grandad Ronan Keating looked bleary-eyed as he left his birthday celebrations in London on Saturday night with his wife Storm.

The Irish star, 46, enjoyed a night out at The Aubrey with pals including Gary Barlow and his wife and looked a little worse for wear as he headed home in a taxi.

It comes after his Love Island star son Jack, 23, revealed he has welcomed a baby girl on Thursday in a shock announcement – making Ronan a grandad for the first time.

For his birthday night out Ronan looked smart in a navy coat and white shirt teamed with cream chinos.

Beside him Storm, 41, looked stylish in a chic white shirt and high-waisted jeans while toting a nude handbag.

Also at the party was Take That’s Gary, 52, who wore a padded black coat and left with wife Dawn Andrews.

Ronan and his ex-wife Yvonne Connolly were quick to publicly congratulate son Jack after he shocked fans with his surprise baby announcement. 

Jack revealed in an Instagram post that he had welcomed a baby girl – confusing fans because he hadn’t mentioned a child before. 

Also because he had appeared on the ITV2 show eight months ago – meaning his baby daughter was likely conceived prior to his appearing on the show.

Jack has not been public about a romantic relationship since leaving the Love Island villa last summer but the mother has been revealed to be artist Keely Iqbal.

Yet Ronan and Yvonne, 49 – who divorced in 2015 after 17 years of marriage – didn’t address any speculation as they instead shared sweet messages of support.

 It is the first grandchild for father-of-five Ronan who called his granddaughter a ‘little cutie’.

The Irish singer shares eldest child Jack with his ex-wife, Yvonne Connolly, 48, who’s also a mum to Missy, 22, and Ali, 17, from the couple’s 12-year marriage.

It comes after his Love Island star son Jack, 23, revealed he has welcomed a baby girl on Thursday in a shock announcement - making Ronan a grandad for the first time.

Yvonne wrote on Jack’s post: ‘I miss her so much already’. 

Jack looked every inch the doting dad in the snaps as he looked down adoringly at the little one who he cradled in his arms. 

He captioned the snap: ‘Welcome to the world my little Princess’. 

His pals and other Love Island stars were quick to congratulate him, as Paige Thorne wrote: ‘Congratulations hunny!!’

Ronan’s second wife and Jack’s step mother Storm replied with a series of heart emojis under the post. 

The Magic Radio Breakfast host has been with wife, Australian fashion designer, Storm, 40, since 2010 and the pair have children Cooper, five, and Coco, two, together.

Prior to entering the Love Island villa eight months ago, Jack said: ‘I’ve been single for a long time, probably 4 or 5 years now and I’ve really been missing that spark that I haven’t been getting on the dating scene, like I’ve been dating for a long time. 

‘And I just thought why not? Hopefully I’ll get a connection with somebody and see what happens.’

The mother of Jack’s newborn daughter is artist Keely.

Keely works as an artist designing custom trainer designs and greeting cards and kept her fans in the loop during her pregnancy by sharing various bump snaps. 

She describes herself as  ‘Mummy. Artist• Sneakerhead’ on her business’ Instagram profile. 

Keely and Jack are not believed to be together, with Jack insisting earlier this month that he was ‘still single and ready to mingle.’ 

Fans have gathered that Jack conceived his daughter before finding fame on Love Island, due to the fact he entered the villa eight months ago. 

MailOnline has contacted Jack’s representatives for further comment.

Fans also took to the comments of Jack’s post to share their congratulations but noted that the ‘math ain’t mathing’.

One follower said: ‘I’m so confused. The maths isn’t adding up’.

Another echoed: ‘I know I’m bad at maths, but the math ain’t mathing on this at all!!! Love Island isn’t even 9 months ago yet. I mean I know accidents happen but….’

A third added: ‘So did he have a gf when he was in Love Island correct me if I’m wrong it said he was in the villa 8 months ago and a baby takes 9 ?!’

A fourth accused: ‘So you went on a show to find love not thinking about the girl you got pregnant’.

And a fifth agreed, writing: ‘Someone was carrying your baby when you went on Love Island? You’re joking.’

While a sixth explained: ‘yeah so he must of got the mum pregnant in June then went into LI (Casa) in July. Unless he waited until he came out of LI and baby’s been born a month early.’

It comes after Jack spoke to The Independent this month and insisted: ‘I’m still single and ready to mingle. I’m on Hinge [the dating app], but I don’t use it too seriously. I dip in every once in a while and I’m enjoying being single.’

He added: ‘People think my account is fake. I’m verified, but they still believe I’m a catfish who’s stolen someone else’s photos. I’m like: “Trust me – I’m the real deal.”‘

He also admitted to going on Dinner Dates on ITV in his quest for love, saying: ‘I just did Dinner Dates with ITV, and that comes out in March. Filming took a couple of weeks and I met some nice girls and ate some nice food, so it was a full experience.’

Jack entered Love Island’s Casa Amor villa alongside Deji Adeniyi, 25, Josh Le Grove, 22, George Tasker, 23, Samuel Agbiji, 22, and Billy Brown, 23, in the 2022 summer series.

The Dublin-born influencer confessed to being unlucky in love at the time and had hoped signing up to Love Island would mark the end of his dating woes.
