Storm took to her own Instagram on Bank Holiday Monday to reveal she had taken the day off work so she could spend some time with her two little ones.

She shared a sweet snap of her with Cooper and Coco enjoying ice cream together, captioned: ‘One of those days when you spontaneously decide not to rush back to the office and instead, clear the afternoon so you can detour to the playground ☀️’.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Ronan and Storm Keating for comment. 

The concern for Storm comes after she developed a rare condition in 2021 that caused her to suffer temporary paralysis from the waist down.

She was diagnosed with Cauda Equina Syndrome, which causes the nerves in the lower back to suddenly become compressed and can lead to loss of sensation, incontinence and paralysis if not treated immediately.

The Australian star underwent emergency spinal surgery after waking up one morning to find that parts of her body were ‘completely numb’.

Speaking on Loose Women in December 2021, Storm said: ‘It was all gone. My legs, my bowel, my bladder, the lot.’

She revealed that as coronavirus restrictions meant Ronan couldn’t visit her in hospital, he was left ‘crying in the car’ outside during the terrifying ordeal.

‘He was sitting in the car park and just crying in the car outside the hospital waiting to hear how it would go.’

Ronan admitted that hearing his wife talk about the incident ‘brought back the same feeling’ that he experienced at the time.

The Life Is a Rollercoaster hitmaker remembered ‘bawling his eyes out’ due to ‘not knowing’ what his wife was going through in hospital, and added that it was the first time he had ever called an ambulance.

After what Storm described as ‘the most frightening week’ of her life, she underwent a full year of rehabilitation and is able to walk again after the successful surgery.

What is cauda equina syndrome?

Cauda equina syndrome is a serious condition where the nerves at the very bottom of the spinal cord become compressed.

Symptoms include:

  • lower back pain
  • numbness in your groin
  • paralysis of one or both legs
  • rectal pain
  • loss of bowel control (bowel incontinence)
  • loss of bladder control (urinary incontinence)
  • pain in the inside of your thighs

Doctors advise seeking medical assistance immediately if a person develops these symptoms.

They should visit their GP or the accident and emergency (A&E) department of the nearest hospital.

If cauda equina syndrome is not promptly treated, the nerves to the bladder and bowel can become permanently damaged.
