She told Irish Country Magazine: “My husband doesn’t work in the media and doesn’t want people to know his name and that’s fair enough. Now that I have a daughter, it will be up to her to decide when. she’s older whether she wants her name in the public or not.

“I feel like so much of our lives are shared now through social media that you have to keep something back for yourself.”
