Baby Sadie gets the royal treatment during a walk around Dublin's Grafton Street with mum Amy Huberman.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge seem to be sharing style tips with Ireland's royal couple, Brian O'Driscoll and Amy Huberman. New mum Amy has joined the Bugaboo brigade, as she was spotted on a sunny stroll with Sadie in Dublin city centre over the weekend, pushing the very trendy pram.
Joined by good friend and fellow actress Ruth Bradley, the IFTA winner proudly pushed her pride and joy in the stylish get-up, favoured by Hollywood's A-list, and recently snapped up by a six-months-pregnant Kate Middleton.
Everyone from Victoria Beckham and Gwyneth Paltrow has been spotted with the Bugaboo, which was also featured in an episode of Sex and the City, with Charlotte York (played by Kristin Davis) keeping up with the Park Avenue set with her pricey pram.
And uber-trendy Amy is one of the many Irish women, determined to give their child the best, who snapped up the stylish and stable stroller.
The high-end accessory retails for an average of €1,000 at Mothercare, which has been a consistently top-selling product for the brand in Ireland.
And on her day out, Amy also took the opportunity to promote her shoe line, by wearing her own line. The Threesome star was spotted in her high-top wedge trainers with Bourbon footwear, which are now sold out across the country.
Meanwhile, the future Queen of England is said to have purchased the same exact buggy as Amy, albeit in a different colour. She is believed to have purchased the bugaboo in Jewel Blue, a nod which has once again suggested that the young royal couple might be expecting a baby boy.
Mothercare spokeswoman Sonia Harris explained that stock of the stroller has been increased around the country due to the incredible demand from Irish parents.
"The range was made popular by Gwyneth Paltrow when she had baby Apple and has become a status symbol among Irish families," she said. "It's available in a huge range of colours and will set you back up to €1,300. It was expected that Kate Middleton would go for the traditional British brand Silver Cross, so it's a surprise to the industry that she is going for Bugaboo.
"Bugaboo is now stocked in Mothercare in Mahon Point, Cork and the Crescent Shopping Centre in Limerick following demand in these areas."
