Few snooker players are as successful as Ronnie O’Sullivan: the current world number one.

West Midlands-born Ronnie, 48, has been playing professional snooker since age 16 and has won won seven World Snooker Championships titles, most recently in 2022.

Away from the snooker table, has co-authored three crime novels, written two autobiographies and even lent his name to a number of video games.

A lot about his professional career is well known, but what about his family life? Does he have a girlfriend, and does he have kids?

Here’s what we know.

Who is Ronnie O’Sullivan’s partner?

Ronnie O’Sullivan has been dating Holby City and Strictly star Laila Rouass since 2012.

The couple got engaged in 2013, but seemed in no rush to tie the knot.

Ronnie confirmed as much in a 2019 interview, saying: ‘We’ve been engaged for a while now… I’m sure we will get round to it.’

Alas, it emerged in February 2022 that Ronnie and 50-year-old Laila had called time on their relationship after 10 years together.

In a brief statement, actor Laila tweeted at the time: ‘After nearly ten years of love and memories, Ronnie I have parted ways. Peace and love to you all. Laila X [sic].’ 

But from late April 2022, reports suggested that the couple has reunited.

An insider claimed to The Mirror: ‘It seems like they are giving things another go. Nothing is ever straightforward when it comes to Ronnie but there’s a lot of love there.’ 

Does Ronnie O’Sullivan have any kids?

Indeed, Ronnie does have three kids from previous relationships.

Daughter Taylor-Ann was born in 1996, to mum Sally-Ann Magnus, who had a year-long relationship with Ronnie in the 1990s.

Taylor-Ann is now a mum herself, to a little girl named Zarah-Ann.

However, it appears the pair do not stay in contact. Ronnie revealed as much in a 2019 chat with The Mirror, while Taylor-Ann slammed him in a 2020 interview with The Sun.

Ronnie also has two kids with ex Jo Langley. Their daughter Lily was born in 2006, and son Ronnie Jr was born in 2007.

In a chat with Metro.co.uk back in 2022, the snooker champion shared that he hasn’t seen a lot of his kids as he’s ‘always away’.

Meanwhile, Ronnie’s girlfriend Laila also has a kid from a previous relationship. Her daughter Inez Khan was born in 2007.

What is Ronnie O’Sullivan’s net worth?

As of April 2024, Ronnie’s net worth is around £20 million.

The Rocket has enjoyed a remarkable 2023-24 season, his best ever in terms of prize money.

Glory at the Shanghai Masters, UK Championship, Masters, World Grand Prix and World Masters of Snooker in Saudi Arabia has seen him pocket more than £1.1m this season.
