New & Noteworthy: Three and counting for Keating

February 17, 2011

By Staff Reporter

The Keatings have two other children, six-year-old Jack and four-year-old Marie.
Mother and baby are doing fine, according to a spokesperson for the star. And Ronan, who seems to enjoy midnight feedings and all that other baby stuff, says that he and the wife might keep expanding the brand, so to speak.
“We said we would stop at two, but that moved to three,” the singer told ananova.com. “So who can say if we will stop at three?”

What’s in a name?
You know that a child star is all grown up when they insist on being called by a proper name — you know, one without the “ee” sound at the end. And now, joining the list peopled by such luminaries as Rick(y) Schroeder and Don(ny) Osmond is Tom Cruise’s lady love, Katie Holmes.

“It’s a blessing in disguise that Brian left,” she said, “because I’d never have got together.”

Briefings
Phil Collins got his own back — sort of — on Oasis brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher this week. The “In the Air Tonight” singer, who’s endured years of slagging from the pair, told a British DJ that the ornery brothers were “rude, and not as talented as they think they are.” To which Noel responded, “Why did [Collins] sell so many records in the 80s? I mean . . . hell.”

Robbie Williams will be happy to entertain you — for a couple of million bucks, that is.
The hunky Brit singer performed at a private birthday bash in the south of France last weekend. According to London’s Daily Mail, Robbie performed 15 numbers, at a price of about
