Los Angeles - Ronan Keating's fans constantly tell him their children were conceived to his song When You Say Nothing at All.

The 38-year-old singer revealed that his cover of Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz's romantic song is popular with amorous fans and they like to tell him exactly what it means to them.

Ronan told BANG Showbiz: "I get a lot people coming up to me and saying they got engaged to my music or their baby was conceived to a song.

"When You Say Nothing At All seems to have that effect on people - there's a lot of children conceived to that song! That also seems to be picked a lot for first dances at weddings.

"I'm bloody proud about that, too right, it's fantastic privilege to have that sort of effect on people's lives."

Ronan got Ed Sheeran to perform at his wedding to Storm Uechtritz in August and revealed he often gets asked to perform at the weddings of his fans.

He said: "You never know, I've sung at a couple of weddings already. I do get people who call up and ask if you're sing at their wedding or whatever."

And Ronan admitted that when he asked Ed if he would perform at the reception he never thought the Thinking Out Loud hitmaker would say yes.

He said: "We were very lucky to get Ed! I asked him a few months before and I couldn't believe he said, 'Yeah, no problem, let me check the diary and make sure I'm free,' and he said he'd come up and do it. I just couldn't believe it."

Ronan's new album Time Of My Life is out now.
