Ronan Keating and his wife of 14 years, Yvonne Keating, have announced their split two years after the Boyzone singer's affair was exposed.
The couple simultaneously tweeted the news this morning, revealing that their marriage had actually ended late last year.
Ronan tweeted, "Sadly our news is true. Thank u all for your support. Yvonne and I still love and care for each other and want to protect our kids. X"
Yvonne followed up on her own Twitter account, "Sadly,our marriage ended late last year. We kept this news private to give everybody involved time to adjust.Thank you for your support x"
In 2009 Yvonne discovered "suggestive" text messages on a secret phone she found in her husband's possession. The messages were from Boyzone back-up dancer Francine Cornell, who, when confronted by Yvonne, claimed that she and Ronan were in love.
Despite details of the seven-month affair going public, Yvonne and Ronan tried to work things out for the sake of their children.
Last year, Ronan admitted in an interview with The Mail on Sunday, "I make mistakes. I'm definitely not comfortable with the mistakes that I've made and I'm still trying to resolve them.
"The people I love the most have been hurt - my family. I take the blame for that."
