There can be nothing worse than seeing your little one ill – and no one knows that better than parents Ronan and Storm Keating.
The couple opened up about spending three days in hospital with their 18-month-old son Cooper this week, calling it a “very long 72 hours.”
The fashion designer – who married singer Ronan in 2015 – shared a series of pictures as they held vigil by their baby’s bedside.
She captioned the images: “After a very long 72 hours… we’re finally taking our little button home.”
The 37-year-old thanked hospital staff, adding: “Thank you Dr Massoud and all the wonderful team #theportlandhospital for taking such amazing care of our boy ♥️😢.”
She also included the hashtags: “#sorelieved #emotionallyexhausted #thattimeoftheyear #kidsandviruses #nasty #poorbaby #sickbaby #muchbetternow #thetrialsandtribulationsofparenthood #wishicouldhavetakenitforhim.”
Thankfully Cooper is now back on his feet after the “nasty virus” and the family have been allowed to return home.
The couple’s followers rushed to offer sympathy and send their love following the ordeal.
One commented: “Poor lil Cooper so glad that he is safe and well and back home.”
Another added: “Sorry your beautiful boy is poorly, sending healing prayers to cooper 🙏💜✨🦋xxx. Get well soon wee man ❤️✨.”
A third wrote: “Brave little soldier. Glad you’re all home. ❤️,” while one more said: “It is the worst feeling when one of your children fall ill, you feel helpless, glad he is on the mend 💙🙏.”
The Irish Boyzone singer, whose new album, Thank You & Goodnight, is out this week, recently enjoyed a family holiday in Europe.
Ronan, 41, apparently visited Istanbul, Lisbon, and Tuscany with Storm and Cooper – even sharing an image of them boarding a private jet.
He captioned it: “Finally #Time Off.”
Ronan was previously married to childhood sweetheart Yvonne Connolly in 1998. They share three children, Jack, 20, Marie, 17, and Ali, 13.
The couple separated after Ronan had an affair with a dancer, and he and Storm – who he had previously met on The X Factor Australia in 2010 – started dating in 2012.
