Boyzone Singer Becomes Latest Pop Parent

Boyzone singer Ronan Keating has become the latest pop star to contribute to the industry's recent baby boom, as Keating and wife Yvonne gave birth to a boy, which the couple have named Jack, on Monday evening in Dublin, Ireland.

Jack weighed in at a healthy 10 pounds, and according to MTV News Europe, arrived more than a week later than expected. Doctors had told the Keatings to expect the child, the couple's first, on or around March 3, the same date as Ronan's 22nd birthday (and the day before Posh Spice Victoria Adams gave birth to her own baby boy).

According to a statement released by Ronan, both Yvonne and the child were doing well, and may join the singer and the rest of Boyzone for some of the band's promotional dates in the U.S. next month.

Boyzone had its most recent album, "Where We Belong," released in America late last year, but is probably most familiar to audiences in the states for the band's cameo in the U2 video, [article id="1440593"]"The
