It’s not yet clear what happened to the youngster however Ronan spoke of their terrifying hospital dash and said his son had been “a trooper”.

He shared another photo with Cooper looking in better spirits, sitting up in bed and watching cartoons.

Ronan thanked the staff at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and captioned the photos: “Not the 24hrs I had imagined. But ya never know what life has in store. This little guy is an absolute Trooper.

“I’m blown away with his strength and charm. Mum & Dad are a mess worried sick and he takes it in his stride. I am so incredibly grateful to the staff @chelwestft you guys rock.”

His celebrity fans rushed to send their love.

Jamie Rednapp said: “Hope all ok mate ❤️.”

Aaron Crascall wrote: “sending love!” and Jason Manford said: “Thinking of you mate.”

Ronan and his fashion designer wife Storm, 39, share two kids.

Storm married Boyzone singer Ronan in 2015, meeting while both were working on the Australian X Factor. 

As well as son Cooper, born in 2017, they are parents to daughter Coco, born in March last year.

In June Storm revealed she faces a year of rehab after having emergency surgery on her spine.

She was diagnosed with cauda equina syndrome last month, a rare condition where the nerves in the lower back are severely compressed.

Her surgery was a success, but she still faces a long road to a full recovery.

Speaking to the Mirror, she said: “You’ve got to give the nerves 12 months post-surgery. It’s a long time to wait but between now and then I’m on a rigorous programme that will ease up as I get stronger.”

Storm was overwhelmed with emotion when her surgeon told her the operation had gone well and that her life was likely to return to the normal in the future.

She explained: “It wasn’t until the surgeon said it was a success that I broke down. Then I had a couple of weeks with waves of emotions. You start to panic. You realise what your life would’ve looked like and that I wouldn’t have been able to drive to school, or gone on holidays.

“My view definitely changed a lot since I had that scare. I’m still going through rehabilitation at the minute. I’m not 100 per cent perfect, but I’m very guilty of never making time for myself. I don’t have a good balance. But now I believe you can’t ignore your body. You’ve got to make time and look after yourself.”

Storm initially needed medical help for a “very bad prolapsed disc”, but it ended up being much more serious when she was diagnosed with cauda equina syndrome, which if untreated can lead to paralysis.
