'Excited' model mum-to-be Irma Mali gets ready to welcome new baby boy
Top model Irma Mali has been putting her feet up over Christmas as she gears up to welcome her new baby in the new year.
The Herald can reveal that she and partner Barry Maguire are having a baby boy, their first child together.
The in-demand beauty finished up working with 1st Options Models a few weeks ago as she went on maternity leave in preparation for the new arrival.
Despite being eight months pregnant, the Lithuanian model has maintained her trim figure.
She managed to keep her pregnancy under wraps until she was nearly five months pregnant.
"I've just been really lucky, I guess. It's been 13 years since I had my daughter, Nikoleta, so I guess your stomach does go back if you work on it," she said.
"I'm still doing workouts, a bit of cardio and some light weights, but that's about it.
"I'm feeling great, so everything's good. I finished up work about three or four weeks ago so I'm trying to get out to a few events before the baby comes.
"I'm really excited about it. It's been so long since I had Nikoleta, I've probably forgotten everything."
Irma has been spending Christmas with her mum and her brother, who both live in Ireland, alongside her other half Barry.
Irma has been dating Barry, a firefighter she met through mutual friends, for more than two years.
As well as being one of our best-known models, Irma has branched out into acting, appearing in an episode of Game of Thrones and several music videos.
She previously dated Danny O'Donoghue from The Script, but the pair went their separate ways in 2012.
Originally from Alytus, Irma moved over here in 2002.
