After the video was released, Ronan also spoke to Lorraine Kelly on Good Morning Britain on Friday, revealing that his older children are yet to meet their newborn sister.
Of the birth of his little girl, he said, “None of Coco’s siblings could be there, but I was there, it was different because of the circumstances we were in, but it was very special. Fortunately, Storm’s mom was here.
“Mine was in Koop’s house, she was here before she locked, but it was great that Coco flies.
“The older kids are in Ireland, they were here when the foreclosure started, but please, if it ends quickly, they can come over and see their new sister.”
Ronan also confessed that he found it challenging to keep Cooper from getting too close to others when they were out and about.
He told Lorraine, “It is very difficult, we are going for a walk in the neighborhood, not far from us, and Cooper is a friendly child, he loves other children, he will run over and say hello to others.
“It is very difficult to try to explain” “no no, don’t do that.” “How do you explain these things to a three-year-old?”
