London (ANI): Ronan Keating's wife Yvonne has decided to take him back, after the exposure of his affair with dancer Francine Cornell, for the sake of their children, sources say. Yvonne has apparently conceded after the singer spent a week weeping and begging for one last chance.
"Some of the immediate anger has gone now. But it's still very, very raw," the Mirror quoted a Keating's pal, as saying. The friend added: "Yvonne has made the huge step of admitting she is not ready to give up on the marriage but that doesn't mean she is forgiving him."
"The pair have been locked in talks for days. He has told her, 'I know things won't ever get back to normal, but I will do anything to make this work'. Yvonne is still desperately hurt, but she and Ronan are both very conscious of their kids, and they are trying to be as normal as possible."
Yvonne apparently asked Keating to step out of their Dublin home, as soon as the affair was exposed. The source added: "Ronan has not been staying in Yvonne's bedroom, but he has been sleeping in the family home. He was staying at a hotel for a couple of days - but he has been back in the house since."
The insider said: "Ronan will be out in Oz for most of June and July, but he will come back whenever he can. Yvonne, above, has said she and the children may go with him for the summer holidays, and after that they may go to a private school over there, but that hasn't been decided."
The couple have three children - Jack, 11, Marie, nine and four-year-old Ali - together.
