'My parents were glad I finally brought a pregnant woman home' - Al Porter opens up to Lucy Kennedy

Al Porter has revealed he couldn’t resist opening up to Lucy Kennedy on her TV3 show – because she’s pregnant.
The presenter moved in with the Tallaght man for her show Living With Lucy and wasn’t afraid to get serious with the comedian, asking him about loneliness and being single.“The thing with her is that you feel really relaxed in her presence.
She’s a pregnant woman and she has that maternal instinct,” he told the Herald.
“My parents were glad I finally brought a pregnant woman home. We spoke about me being single and how lonely comedy is when you live from hotel to hotel. I might have a bit of a reputation for being a camp Casanova, a promiscuous person and I definitely have a few notches on the bed post but there’s no man behind me that’s my rock, I’m there for myself.”
However there were also many lighter moments during Lucy’s stay with Al and his parents.
The Seven O’Clock Show anchor gave the 23-year-old a spray tan ahead of one of his gigs, however Al wasn’t too happy with the result.
“I started getting spray tans for shows because I was sick of people telling me I looked pale on stage and I was ruining my skin by putting on dark make-up. I thought spray tans were the way to go because I’d be afraid to do sunbeds. I shouldn’t have let Lucy do it because she turned me into the Incredible Hulk, she turned me green,” he said.
The Dubliner admitted he set to work with his parents to get their house in top shape when they knew Lucy would be moving in for a few days
“My mam said she wouldn’t have done it if it was anyone other than Lucy Kennedy. She loves Lucy, she trusted her,” he said.“I cleaned the house and repainted it when we realised she’d be coming from Shane Long’s mansion to our house in Tallaght.”
Al’s nationwide tour The Honeymoon Tour which kicked off in September has sold out.
Living With Lucy airs tonight on TV3 at 9:30pm.
