“Clíodhna, our baby daughter arrived into the world on the Thursday 11th of November in a bit of a hurry but I still (luckily) had the birth I had hoped for with Damien by my side every step of the way.”
Continuing the 42-year-old said we’re so thankful for an incredible birth team in @thecoombehospital our wonderful consultant Professor Deirdre Murphy and midwives Rachel and Dara for believing in me and empowering me to have the birth experience I was hoping for. * shout out to perineum massage too for a quick recovery post birth. ”
“Cathal has taken to the role of big brother brilliantly and we’re trying to soak up every euphoric and exhausting second while we can. Feeling beyond thankful that she’s here.”
The Irish TV presenter revealed her pregnancy news on Instagram back in June of this year, sharing: “Anyone who has been following me for a while knows the past two years for me, on a personal level, have been challenging because I’ve gone through two miscarriages.”
“My news is that I am pregnant. I am sixteen weeks, I am feeling overjoyed. At the moment there is a lot baby news on Instagram, which is beautiful, but I also know what it’s like when it’s something you want yourself. I didn’t expect to be this emotional. I’m so happy and feeling so lucky but it hasn’t been an easy road.”
She continued; “I wanted to say this for a while but the time didn’t feel right. I know it can be hard to see scan images, or bump images so I’ll be very mindful of what I post going forward. Huge love, especially to those of you who need it.”
Congratulations to Síle and Damien on their wonderful news!
