Roisin also has lovely grandparents. Waters is the granddaughter of John O'Connor and Marie O'Connor and loves spending time with them.

Roisin Waters' Parents, Sinéad O'Connor & John Waters, Were Never Married

Yes, you heard it right; Roisin Waters' parents were never married to each other; instead, they gave birth to her while they were dating each other. Unfortunately, they could not tie the knot because of misunderstandings and frequent conflicts like Lucy Iglesias's parents.

As per online tabloids, the former couple dated in 1995, and within one year, they could not stick to their relationship and got apart in 1996. As a result, their beautiful relationship ended at a complete stop.

However, within that one year, Sinead was already pregnant since she had Roisin Waters in her belly. After the separation, she still decided to give birth to her despite her family being against her. 

Because of Sinead's bravery and love for her unborn child, she went against her family and allowed Waters to see the world. But things wouldn't turn out to be like how the singer wanted. 

So, who raised Roisin? Well, both Sinend and John Waters wanted custody of Roisin. After her birth O'Connor and Waters had an ugly battle over Roisin's guardianship. At the end of the verdict, John got custody of his daughter.
