Ronan Keating and wife Storm reveal plans to start a family together as they mark 1st wedding anniversary 

When they married last year, Ronan Keating's wife Storm became stepmother to his three children.

And as they mark their first wedding anniversary this month, the couple admitted they are hoping to give the singer's children a sibling.

The former Boyzone star, 39, and Australian TV producer wife, 34, said they were planning to start trying for a baby imminently.

Speaking to the new issue of Hello! magazine, Storm enthused: 'Please God that it works out for us. Ronan is a great dad. He is amazing.'

The couple have bought a new home in Hertfordshire, where Ronan's children Jack, 17; Missy, 15; and Ali, 10; from his first marriage will be frequent visitors.

Their new UK base comes after they tied the knot in Scotland on 17 August 2015 with Jack acting as best man and Missy and Ali serving as bridesmaids.

Ronan said: 'It feels like we were always meant to be together.

'They (the children) can see how happy I am. And it's about making them know they are loved.'

Storm explained: 'It makes me very proud when I refer to "my husband". And for the kids, too.

'I'm sure it gives them more security knowing that we're officially a family now and I'm not someone who may one day walk out of their lives.'

Storm and Ronan started dating in late 2012 after being friends for two years as colleagues on the X Factor Australia.

They got together following the breakdown of Ronan's 14 year marriage to Yvonne in late 2011.
