X Factor Australia: Ronan Keating confirms he’s dating Storm Uechtriz and says, “We’re really happy”
As we reported yesterday, there was speculation that X Factor Australia judge Ronan Keating had found new love with former X Factor producer, Storm Uechtritz, and in today’s Mirror, the man himself has confirmed that he is indeed dating Storm.
Saying, “We’re really happy,” he added, “Storm and I have been friends for some time and that has recently evolved into something more serious.”
Ronan of course split from his wife Yvonne earlier this year after it was revealed that they couldn’t move on from Ronan’s affair with dancer Francine Cornell.
However, Yvonne is now dating again, and it seems that both she and Ronan have established a good relationship as friends, and of course, they share the common interest of their three children, who Ronan sees regularly.
Of Ronan and Storm’s relationship, the paper adds, “The Sunday Mirror can reveal that Storm, 30, currently working on X Factor rival The Voice Australia, is planning to move to the UK with Ronan when the Australian X Factor wraps up in November.”
A show source added, “They are definitely into each other. While they’re only in the early stages of their relationship, it seems to be the first good thing that has happened to Ronan in nearly two years.
“She’s just what he needed.”
