Mikey shares daughter Hannah, 25, with ex-girlfriend Sharon Keane.

The star and his wife Karen Corradi are also the proud parents of 16-year-old Sienna.

Last month, his eldest daughter, Hannah, gave birth, and proud grandpa Mikey was eager to tell his fans about the newest addition to the family.

Mikey said: “Well guys I hope you are all well. Thankfully life has been nothing but wonderful for me for the past three weeks since the birth of my absolutely stunningly beautiful granddaughter, BONNE.

“My eldest daughter Hannah gave birth on February 2 and everything is fine. 🙏🏻👶🏼❤️.”

Many fans responded to the tweet to congratulate the star.

One wrote: “Awww how sweet! However I for one don’t believe you are old enough to be a grandpa hehe coolest grandpa this is sure xx.”

Another said: “Congratulations to Hannah on the birth of her daughter. And congratulations to you too, Mikey. Thank you for letting us in and giving us this wonderful good news. Sending you lots of love.”

A third chimed in, “Aw, that’s lovely, congratulations! Such great news that’s definitely rare right now. I can’t believe you’re a grandpa, where did the time go?! Welcome to Bonnie world. X.”

Mikey later tweeted, “Thank you so much for all the lovely comments.

“As you know, I tend to be a very private man, but I had to share this good news with all of you wonderful fans.

“Glad to have some good news to share for a change. X🙏🏻❤️👶🏼.”

A fan took the opportunity to ask if the boyband would ever recover.

“If boyzone is reforming for a 30th anniversary tour, will you be the only grandfather on tour and congratulations on becoming a grandfather,” they asked.

But Mikey clarified that it was not in any of their future plans.

The singer replied, “Aw thank you so much. I don’t mean it’s raining on your parade, but Ronan has decided that the boyzone is over in 2019, so I don’t think there will be any more concerts of BZ. Sorry folks. I would love to do it.”

Mikey rose to fame in 1993 as part of the Irish boyband Boyzone, created by Louis Walsh.

Originally, he was not part of the final lineup consisting of Ronan Keating, Shane Lynch, Keith Duffy, Stephen Gately, Mark Walton and Richard Rock.

However, Louis Walsh called him back after he fired Mark and Richard for their lack of commitment.

Some of their songs include No Matter What, Love Me For A Reason and All That I Need.

Four years ago, the group announced that they would officially disband after 25 years.
