Boyzone singer Ronan Keating says he won't be buying his own Christmas gifts this year.

The 36-year-old, who has three children, Jack, 14, Marie, 12, and eight-year-old Ali with ex-wife Yvonne, insists he is leaving all of his gift shopping to his girlfriend, Australian TV producer Storm Uechtritz.

Speaking to OK! magazine, Ronan said: ''I'll be at home in Ireland for Christmas - I'm spending the big day with my girlfriend Storm and my kids. I'm really looking forward to it.

''Storm will do the shopping beforehand - it's her turn this year because I did it last year - and we'll both cook.''

Keating added that he's not interested in material possessions this year, adding: ''Christmas is a special time of year for everyone - I remember getting my first BMX bike when I was a kid and it was the best present ever.

''What do I want to receive this time around? Happiness. My wish for everyone is happiness this coming year.''
