Pop star Ronan Keating has confirmed that his 12-year-old marriage with wife Yvonne is back on track after suffering a blow following revelations that he cheated on her with a dancer.
The 33-year-old's marriage looked doomed following the scandal but the Boyzone singer has managed to resurrect his marriage after Yvonne apparently agreed to forgive his seven-month affair.
The couple, who have three children--Jack, 11, nine-year-old Marie and Ali, four, are in Australia as Keating finishes his duties as a judge on the Australian version of the X Factor, the Daily Mail reported.
The Keating family has been spotted together on days out at a funfair and at the zoo indicating that the couple are trying to work their marriage. "We've been left to our own devices but we are now a happy family. It's all good, thank God," Keating said.
The musician reportedly started a fling with back-up dancer Francine Cornell, 26, after meeting her during Boyzone's tour last summer. The affair became public after Yvonne found text message from Cornell on Keating's phone an decided to split.
In a surprise statement in May, the couple said they had split but insisted it was amicable. But Keating decided to work on his marriage before his Australia tour. The singer also admitted that he could get jealous if the former model went out without him.
"I can't believe Yvonne has stuck with me for so long. I still get incredibly jealous. The green-eyed monster rears its ugly head and brings out all my insecurities. I don't like it if Yvonne is out without me. I just can't help it."
