Irish rugby star Peter Stringer is expecting his first child with wife Debbie O'Leary.

The happy couple, who wed in Spain in 2015, shared the exciting news on Instagram and will be welcoming the new arrival in a matter of weeks.

Both have taken a social media hiatus in recent months, but Debbie spoke of her excitement at trying a new product for expectant mums.

Stringer, who previously played for Munster and Ireland, now plays for English team Sale Sharks and the pair have been based in the UK for the last number of years.

They first met in 2009 and Debbie, from Cork, counts singer and reality tv star Nadia Forde as her closest friend - even introducing her to her boyfriend of one year Dominic Day, a former teammate of Stringer's at his former rugby club in Bath.
