Ronan Keating's daughter Ali spends 'hours in surgery' following horse riding accident

The horse fanatic had a nasty fall, and was taken to hospital this week.

The Boyzone star's ex-wife Yvonne Connolly – who he has three children with – revealed the news of their daughter's accident on Instagram.

She shared images of her patting Ali's horse as her daughter proudly sits in the saddle looking at a rosette she's been awarded, and one of her daughter in a hospital bed wearing sunglasses and with a bright pink plaster cast on her arm.

Yvonne said: "Last weekend Ali had her first show on her new pony, Red.

"After a cruel turn of events Ali ended up in hospital on Tuesday after a fall from him (not his fault). Just home today.

"She's now out of the saddle for 8-10 weeks and missing lots of competitions we had coming up. To say she is devastated is an understatement.

"After hours of surgery to repair broken bones she hopes to come back stronger #bionicwoman #brave #red"

Ronan and Yvonne married in 1998 and have Jack, 19, Marie 'Missy', 17, and Ali, 12 together.

They separated in 2010, and Ronan is now happily married to Australian fashion designer and TV producer Storm, 36, and have a one-year-old son, Cooper, together.

The pair met in 2012 when they were both working on The X Factor Australia.

Ronan recently disappointed fans when he shared on social media that Boyzone's forthcoming album will be their last.

He said: "We've had 25 amazing years and we promise that this will be our biggest and best year yet."
