Ronan Loving Each Day...

Ronan Keating has been forced to combine his roles as a superstar with being a super dad since his daughter Marie was born. The millionaire singer has revealed that it's four times as much work looking after two children but he's 'Loving Each Day', as he declares in his new single.

"It is an amazing difference having another child. It's like one is one but when you have a second it's more like four," he said. "You think it is going to be double what you are doing with the one but it isn't - it is four times the amount of work. Marie is sleeping for three, four or even five hours so I am not having too many sleepless nights., But it's fine and we are all doing fine. We are happy with two children and will have to wait and see if we have any more."

Lovin' Each Day seems a more than appropriate title for Ronan Keating's new single. He is still celebrating becoming a dad for the second time and his solo career seems to be going from strength to strength.

"I'm a very happy man at the moment," he said. "I hate using the word perfect but I do feel as though I'm in a perfect position."

His fourth solo single is released next week and is being tipped to reach number one. Next month he embarks on a 21-date arena tour. He denied that Boyzone had split up for good despite pulling out of a planned Christmas reunion tour.

"There is all sorts of speculation about Boyzone at the moment. But at the end of the day I have made a commitment to promoting my solo album and it is taking me to America until the end of this year. I would love to do something with the boys, maybe next year. I would never say never."

However he reveals that he has not seen any of the other band members recently, although he admits to getting regular updates on how Keith Duffy was getting on in the Celebrity Big Brother house while he was in America.

"It was great because I was on the phone every day finding out how he was getting on. Keith did a great job and did everyone proud." He added that he was no longer managing Westlife:

"I have not really been involved in the management of Westlife for about six months now. There's nothing else I can do for those lads. My involvement was very much about setting up their first album for them. I set up the way it looked and sounded then used my name to get them a deal but that ship is now sailing itself. I believed in Westlife from day one but nobody imagined that they would have eight No 1's. It's scary really."

The star revealed that he is still terrified of flying, a year after he got professional help to conquer his fear. "It only came about a year ago. I had been fine up until then. I used to love to fly and Yvonne had even bought me helicopter flying lessons. Things changed when our first child Jack was born. When your first child comes along it makes you value life a little more. Now I just get scared on planes. I had a few dodgy flights which didn't help. I'm not a total mess because I don't have a choice and I have to get on flights, but I would like to be more comfortable. I tried getting hypnotherapy but that hasn't helped. I still end up feeling sick about flying."

He said that his last single failing to top the charts changed his attitude to making hit records. "The Way You Make Me Feel went in at No 6 and that changed my view on the charts and how they work," he recalled. "I want to have a hit record and I will do everything within my power to sell as many records as possible but being No 1 is not the be all and end all. I'm developing my skills as a songwriter. I wrote 15 songs for this album but didn't feel confident enough to put them all on. I wanted to make a great pop album and that meant using other writers."
