Ronan Keating and wife Storm announce the name of their newborn son with sweet family photo

Introducing little...

Ronan Keating and wife Storm have announced the name of their beautiful baby boy, one day after they welcomed him into the world.

And it’s just lovely!

Taking to Instagram to share the happy news, the new-mum posted a picture of herself, her husband, his three other children from a previous marriage and their new bundle of joy.

She captioned the photo: “We’ve finally all agreed on a name. Introducing: Cooper Archer Uechtritz KEATING. #CooperKeating”

The news comes a day after the Boyzone star announced the arrival of baby Cooper with a stunning photo of Storm cradling their new bundle of joy.

“Incredibly excited to announce the arrival. We’re all bursting with love for the newest little member of our family!” he captioned the pic.

He added: “Feeling very blessed to be daddy to this little man and the luckiest man in the world to be husband to such a strong, loving and warm-hearted woman and add to my beautiful family.”

Apart from the occasional bump snap, Storm and Ronan managed to keep the majority of details surrounding their little one’s arrival under wraps.

That was until the new-mum (luckily for us) slipped up on social media just days before their baby boy’s grand entrance.

Taking to Instagram, the Australian-born beauty shared an image of a sweet gift for the bub given to them by Ronan’s 11-year-old daughter Ali from a previous marriage.

In a now-edited caption, she wrote: “So @_alikeating surprised us with this gift for her baby sister/brother haha. Making sure they know their roots #Irish #BabyGift #Cute #LittleLeprechaun #LoveIt.”

The 35-year-old had originally written “baby brother” before making her correction, but the blunder was quickly spotted by eagle-eyed followers.

“Love this… Excitement must have got the better of you #babybrain,” commented one fan.

The newest member of the Keating clan is the X-Factor Australia host’s fourth child, while it marks the first for Storm.

The exciting news was revealed back in December in a blog post on the producer’s site.

“On the 17th August in 2010, my husband and I became friends,” she penned.

“On the same day five years later we became husband and wife. We’re now very excited to announce that a year later (and again to the exact date) we became parents-to-be!! And so THAT’S why I passed on the mulled wine,” she joked.

“Words cannot describe how overwhelmed with happiness we are.”

Ronan and Storm first met through the Australian TV talent show in 2010.

In August 2015, the couple tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in East Lothian, Scotland.

The When You Say Nothing At All hitmaker was previously married to Yvonne Keating for 17 years. Now, they share their three kids Jack, 17, Missy, 15, and Ali, 10.

Storm parted ways with her ex-husband Sydney financial director, Tim Ivers, in April 2012.
