'I grew up on a banana and cattle farm and I'm looking for something similar in Ireland' - Storm Uechtritz searching for home in Dublin with Ronan Keating
Ronan Keating’s partner Storm Uechtritz has revealed how they are currently searching for their dream home in Dublin.
The couple met on set on the Australian X Factor when he was a judge and she was a producer.
“Moving to Dublin was part of the plan since I first moved over to London two-and-a-half years ago, but there’s been lots happening and now we’re at that point where we’re looking for a house,” she told the Herald.
“We’re looking pretty much everywhere in north Dublin at the moment. I seem to live on the websites, but I’m just trying to find somewhere with a bit of space and a bit of land so we can have animals and a little farm.
“I grew up on a banana and cattle farm in Australia and we had lots of space with waterfalls and creeks and 15 horses.
“I even had pet kangaroos and it was the most idyllic childhood, so now I’m going to try and find something similar in Ireland,” she added.
They are currently focusing on moving to Ireland so they can be closer to Ronan’s children – Jack, Ali and Missy – who he had with ex-wife Yvonne.
Meanwhile, Storm (34) isn’t ruling out having children of her own with the Boyzone star.
“It’s definitely a possibility for us. And Ronan’s kids are amazing, I just love them,” she said.
“I really admire Ronan as a father. He comes down to their level and playfulness – it’s like dad is one of the kids.
“These situations can be tricky sometimes but the kids have made it so much easier.”
Storm also hinted that marriage could be on the cards for herself and Ronan.
“We’ll see what happens – there hasn’t been a proposal but we’re very happy. Whether we get married or not I know we’re going to be spending the rest of our lives together,” she said.
Storm flew into Dublin last night to kick off St Patrick’s Day celebrations at The Marker Hotel. The building will be illuminated green ahead our national celebrations.
The hotel is matching the cost of the electricity used with a donation to The Marie Keating Foundation.
