Síle announced the happy news on Instagram Live.

Síle Seoige has announced that she is expecting her second child with fiancé Damien O’Farrell.

Hopping on an Instagram Live Q&A, the 42 year old said she is “overjoyed” with the news of a second baby on the way, after suffering two miscarriages.

She said: “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 have a baby bump. I have a proper bump. I probably look more than 4 months to be honest… It’s very exciting.”

The presenter became a mother to now three year old Cathal in 2017, and not long after celebrated her engagement to Damien in 2018.

She added: “I didn’t expect to be this emotional. I’m so happy and feeling so lucky but it hasn’t been an easy road. Thank you for the messages, I’m always blown away by the amount of support on Instagram.”

Síle is expecting a baby girl this time around and is hoping she can be the best role model possible for her soon to be new arrival.

Opening up about her miscarriages, Síle recently spoke about having suffered from a “missed miscarriage”, meaning she never experience the symptoms typically associated with one.

She said on RTE Radio 1 that after having a steady heartbeat at her seven week scan, she was over the moon for her new baby but it wasn’t until the nine week scan that she was given the heartbreaking news that her baby had stopped growing.
