Former Ireland rugby star Gordon D’Arcy will be tackling fatherhood on the double shortly – his wife Aoife is pregnant once again.

The Herald can reveal the celebrity couple will welcome a sibling for their daughter Soleil this winter as the former Miss Ireland is pregnant again.

Confirming their happy news, Aoife said they were “absolutely thrilled” with the prospect of becoming parents again.

“Soleil will be so happy to have a new little brother or sister to play with in November,” she said.

The high-flying pair (inset) took a break together with a trip to Wimbledon last week.

Looking her usual chic self in a white Bardot dress teamed with a black Chanel handbag and black Gucci loafers, Aoife also sported what looked like a tiny baby bump. Gordon looked super-smart in a blue suit.

The ex-Leinster star retired from professional rugby last year and has started a career in investment banking.

He’s also busy with his various investments, including The Exchequer bars in Dublin 2 and Ranelagh, while he and Aoife run the Pilates Centre Form School.
