Ronan Keating has spoken about his marriage problems, saying he is now a ''happy family'' again with wife Yvonne and their three children
Ronan Keating's marriage is back on track.
The Boyzone singer - whose 12-year union with former model Yvonne was rocked by revelations he had had an affair with a dancer - has been working as a judge on Australian TV talent show 'The X Factor' and says the break from their native Ireland has given the couple the chance to repair their fractured relationship.
Ronan - who has children Jack, 11, Marie, nine, and Ali, four, with Yvonne - said: "We've been left to our own devices but we are now a happy family. It's all good, thank God."
Friends of the couple are thrilled that Yvonne has agreed to give the 'Life is a Rollercoaster' hitmaker a second chance and believe their temporary move Down Under is the best thing that could have happened.
A source said: "Their love is strong and Yvonne wanted to give it a second chance and decided to follow him to Australia.
"That time together has done them the world of good and Yvonne has been able to forgive him. It's what he thinks is best for the children."
Ronan and his family are expected to return to their Dublin home before the live stages of 'The X Factor' begin in Australia in three months.
Ronan, 33, recently thanked fans for getting him through the "scary" time that followed details of his affair with Francine Cornell being revealed in May.
He said: "It has been a really scary time. Thanks so much for all the support from you over the past few weeks. You were the ones who kept me going."
