Yvonne Connolly has said while some people see her as an ice-queen she’s really quite normal.
The ex-wife of Ronan Keating recently proved she’s still one of Ireland’s top models with a stunning photo shoot, but Yvonne said she’s more of a country girl than a diva.
“I always find that if I go to do a photoshoot or anything like that if I go to do a photoshoot or anything like that, stylists and magazine editors are always really keen to paint me as this kind of cool blonde,” she explained.

“They want this kind of ice queen kind of image which leads me to believe that people might see me as that, but in reality I’m the opposite,” she said.
Proving that she really is a down-to-earth mum Yvonne admited she has been busy painting her new Malahide home herself.
“I’ve done my own wallpapering, I’ve done my own painting and I’m planting all my shrubs.
“The sense of achievement I get when I do that – things I never thought I’d be able to do around the house, which to everyone else it’s probably easy-peasy but I’d never done it before,” she told the Herald.

Meanwhile Yvonne admitted her new wardrobe space isn’t as a big as what she had in her Abington mansion she shared with Ronan.
“I have a little wardrobe now that is about a third of the size of the one I had before so it’s a case of trying to thin it out at the moment,” she said.
“It’s not a walk-in wardrobe and that’s probably the one thing I miss from my old house,” she admitted.
