'Love Island' star Jack Keating has surprised fans by announcing he's become a dad.

The 23-year-old son of Boyzone singer Ronan Keating went public with his baby news in a shock announcement on social media on Thursday night (09.10.23) sharing a black and white picture of himself cradling his newborn daughter in a post on Instagram.

In the caption, he wrote: "Welcome to the world my little [princess]."

The new arrivals means Ronan has become a grandfather for the first time at the age of 46 and he was among those to comment on Jack's post, writing: "Little cutie".

Jack didn't share any more details about his little girl, including her name, and he also didn't identify her mother.

He appeared on ITV2 dating show 'Love Island' last summer - entering the show in July 2022 during the Casa Amor stage but went home single after failing to find romance on TV.

In an interview published by on March 2, Jack insisted he was still single and looking for love on dating apps.

He explained: "I’m still single and ready to mingle. I’m on Hinge [the dating app], but I don’t use it too seriously. I dip in every once in a while and I’m enjoying being single."

He added: "People think my account is fake. I’m verified, but they still believe I’m a catfish who’s stolen someone else’s photos. I’m like: 'Trust me – I’m the real deal'."

Jack also returned to TV in his ongoing quest to find love - filming an appearance on ITV show 'Dinner Dates' which is due to air this month. He said of his latest project: "Filming took a couple of weeks and I met some nice girls and ate some nice food, so it was a full experience."
