Jack Keating is the proudest father to his little girl, Maya.

Last March, he revealed that he had welcomed his first child with his former partner, Keely Iqbal.

Jack has been a doting dad to his little girl, celebrating the little one’s first birthday this month.

Keely recently opened up about her birth story admitting that Jack was not present for Maya’s arrival into the world.


A follower asked her on social media: “What did your partner do while you were in labour?”

She replied: “Was very lucky to have my sister very solid birth partner and hand squeezer. She watched birth at 17-years-old.”

Keely went on to say that Jack missed the birth by just nine minutes and he was “gutted” to not be there.

“Jack was gutted to arrive 9 mins after Maya arrived, his rushing was rushing enough,” she wrote.


It comes after Jack celebrated Maya’s first birthday in a glamorous party earlier this month.

Proud grandad Ronan Keating was on hand to celebrate Maya’s birthday. Jack’s stepmother Storm Keating also got involved, helping to make the cake for the day.

His younger siblings Cooper and Coco were also on hand to help and we’re sure they all had a ball!

“Happy birthday to our little nugget. One year passed so quickly. You are a bright ray of sunshine and you bring so much joy to us all. from Nana and pops,” Ronan gushed about his granddaughter, as he captioned the picture of Jack holding baby Maya with Ronan blowing her a kiss.
