Storm also revealed that the beginning of their relationship had to get serious very quickly and the pair had to have discussions about their future very early on. Instagram 5 Ronan was previously married to presenter Yvonne Connolly pictured with their son Jack She said: "We were forced in a very unusual situation because we had to face really big things early on in our relationship. "We didn't want to come out and be dating without knowing there were actual real legs to it because the kids were there and he had this whole other life that was worlds apart from mine and I was quite nervous about that. "We had really serious conversations which people don't normally have on the first second and third date, but we did." But she admitted that she loved Ronan's children almost straight away and they all got on like "a house on fire".
