“Storm said, ‘it’s time’ and I said, ‘hmm I guess it is, yeah sure’.”
Keating, who is a presenter on Magic Radio, told listeners in April last year that Coco’s lockdown birth was a “strange” experience, but also “nice in a way”.
“It was obviously very strange, because nobody could come into the hospital," 彼は言った.
“It was just Storm and myself and little Coco in lockdown in the hospital. The nurses were amazing, the staff were brilliant. But it was just so different, it was so quiet.
“Which was kind of nice in a way. We had all that time just to ourselves. Cooper couldn’t come in, his other brothers and sisters couldn’t come. So it was a strange one. It was very different and lovely.”
