Ronan Keating may be a chart-topping pop star - but the former Boyzone singer is happy to play full-time father to his children while his model wife YVONNE is hard at work.

The stunning blonde recently signed up to model for American designer Tommy Hilfiger and is relieved Ronan can take over parenting duties to JACK, five, and MARIE, three.

Yvonne says, "He's taking them to the NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM (London) today and to Harrods (London department store). He's brilliant with them. I do the kisses and cuddles and the practical side - he'll pretend to be DARTH VADER for three hours.

"When he's working he misses them so much. But he probably sees more of the kids than the average dad."
