LOTTO presenter and former Mr World Kamal Ibrahim is to become a dad for the first time. The Limerick man confirmed the good news to the Sunday Independent this weekend and said he is "over the moon" at the prospect.
The model turned TV presenter has been dating Slovakian beauty Vicky Andeanska, who works as a Zumba Fitness dance instructor.
Vicky, who is based in Greystones, Co Wicklow, moved to Ireland when she was 22 and has been living here for more than six years.
The pair met in Dublin and have become inseparable in recent months, even travelling to Slovakia to meet her family. Kamal is said to have fallen head over heels after seeing Vicky's killer moves at one of her classes – even joining in the fun with the rest of her class.
Describing it as "love at first dance", friends say the couple spend a lot of their free time taking part in extreme outdoor sports. "They are just over the three-month mark, so it is still very early days," a source told the Sunday Independent.
"Anyone who has seen them at the dance classes together, laughing and flirting, will tell you they are crazy about each other."
It has been a golden year for Kamal, the son of an Italian mother and Nigerian father, in which he has managed the successful transition from male model to television star.
In addition to becoming one of the presenters of the National Lottery show, Kamal also took part in RTE's Celebrity Masterchef.
